DIY dog wash opens in Northern Liberties

    City dwellers lacking dog-washing essentials like a yard and a hose might enjoy this: a do-it-yourself dog wash. The first automated dog-washing machines in Philadelphia can be found in Northern Liberties.


    Put a token in a K9000 machine at You Dirty Dog Do-It-Yourself Dog Wash and away you go. KYW snapped photos of a pup enjoying his bath. The hose attached to each unit can is controlled by a dial from which you can get shampoo, flea-and-tick shampoo, water and two blow dryer settings.

    The DIY wash is $15 to $20 per visit.
