Let our trained, insured, and dog-loving groomers wash your dog! We first pre-brush your dog, loosening dirt before using warm water and premium shampoo to treat your dog to a thorough washing. 

We’re careful around sensitive areas like eyes and ears, but we give ‘em a vigorous scrub to make sure your dog is squeaky-clean by the end of the appointment!  Appointment length varies by breed and size of dog. We’ll also check whether your dog’s nails need trimming, and tidy them up if they do… so what are you waiting for, give us a call today! 

We bring the groomer to you! Our professional, trained owner-operator groomers will drive their Big Blue Dog mobile grooming studio right to your home or workplace… that’s easier on you AND your pet!

No More Scratching

HydroDog applies a special shampoo treatment to your dog, resulting in an environment that fleas do not find to be hospitable. In cases of heavy flea infestation, a double treatment may be applied.

We also conduct follow-up visits as necessary to ensure your furry friends are flea-free! To ensure the flea cycle is truly broken, you may purchase a special spray product that is applied to your dog’s bedding. Your groomer will assess whether this is the right approach for your dog.

Ticks are dangerous to dogs, and can even be fatal. Other times, they can result in serious health issues such as paralysis. Our special tick treatments ensure your canine continues to enjoy the outdoors.

Meet our founder

Anthony Amos founded the mobile dog-grooming company HydroDog at age 21 during his off-time as a professional rugby player. His franchise model achieved massive growth and success in Australia, and Anthony has introduced HydroDog to The United States through the extended, nationwide 50-state BatheToSave.com Tour that includes his entire family in public dog-washing events benefitting local shelters and raising awareness for rescue adoption of dogs at a time of epidemic-level canine euthanasia. 

This tour’s legacy also continues beyond the Amos family tour, in the form of regular public dog-washing events conducted by local HydroDog franchises that continue to expand rapidly throughout the country.  

Franchise opportunities

Bathe to Save.

Hydrodog supports the Bathe to Save tour. Over two and a half years,  Bathe to Save washed and helped to save the lives of thousands of dogs. Bathe to Save is very much a family-oriented campaign and it’s run buy a caring family of five socially-conscious Aussies: Anthony, Rachel, Bella (13), Austin (12) and Aria (11). 

We are passionate about the welfare of our four-legged friends.  So much so that we recently purchased and moved into a 40ft motor coach and are touring America for an up close and personal lesson in U.S. history and to raise money and awareness for animal rescues. Since only 30 percent of pets in homes are adopted from shelters, we need to make a change. Our plan: the Bathe to Save National Tour.

Our Bone of Contention

* Approximately 3.9 million animals (1.2 million dogs) are killed in U.S. shelters each year.
* One unspayed dog and her unaltered offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in seven years.
* Only one out of every 10 dogs born will find a permanent home.
* 60% of dogs in shelters never find a home.
* Many strays are lost pets not properly kept indoors or microchipped.
* All dogs should be treated equal despite their breed.

There are over 165 million households in the U.S. and 79.7 million have pets. NO dogs (animals) should be killed in shelters. They truly can all be saved. As dog lovers, we’re passionate about the well-being of our furry friends and want to raise awareness of the numerous benefits of animal adoption.
