There's something special about a dog's joyous bound along St Kilda beach - until you think about the sandy aftermath. Enter the Pet Barn DIY Dog Wash: the answer to sandy paws and salty fur dilemmas.

Nestled within the store, the indoor facility provides warm water baths that your dog is bound to appreciate. Along with the standard rinse, shampoo, conditioner, and a rejuvenating blow dry, the facility also offers range of alternative shampoos and treatments to select from. What's more, if you find a product that suits your furry friend's fancy, you can always purchase a bottle directly from the store's extensive range. This ensures you're equipped with the best even outside of your Pet Barn visits.

On the topic of payments, it's cash-only at the wash station. If you're short on cash or prefer the plastic, no worries - you can purchase tokens at the store counter.

The cleanliness is noteworthy. It’s evident the staff ensure the washing bay is in pristine condition for each user. Though the area isn't gated, they've thoughtfully provided lead hooks for a safe and secure washing experience.

One thing to note, this doggy DIY wash is only available during store hours. So, make sure you plan accordingly. For detailed operating hours and further information, it’s best to head over to the official Pet Barn website.

Location-wise, after a sandy frolic on St Kilda beach or a playful romp at the nearby Peanut Farm off-leash area and M.O. Moran Reserve Fenced Dog Park, this DIY Dog Wash is perfectly positioned for a pit stop. Easy parking via Barkly Street just adds to the convenience.

In essence, for those in St Kilda, the Pet Barn DIY Dog Wash is a game-changer. A clean pup is just a store visit away!
