Hydrodog brings dog grooming services directly to clients – The Daily Nonpareil
Hydrodog of Gretna held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Oct. 6 with the Gretna Area Chamber of Commerce.
The mobile dog grooming business sports a giant blue dog on its truck, which travels to customers’ homes or other gathering spots to help bathe and groom canine pets.
The pup-themed truck serving Gretna is named Butterball, and it has been seen around town prior to its ribbon-cutting, including during Gretna Days.
Mobile grooming is a newer approach to traditional pet care. Instead of customers leaving home to take an animal to a grooming appointment, or attempting to provide that care at home, a vehicle moves to them to provide one-on-one solutions.
Several other businesses in Sarpy County offer mobile grooming, including Loyal Companion K9 Comfort Spa, Pawtastic Mobile Grooming and HydroDog Oliver, all based in Papillion.
