The staff was very friendly and willing to assist. The facility was clean and provided every needed, just in case you needed towels or shampoo. There is a frequent wash card which is another added bonus.

Good setup. Warm water, shampoo and conditioner, with a dryer already set up to use to dry your dog. Convenient and the mess is left behind.

This is 3rd time taking my golden doodle to Shelley and it will be my last. First two times I was happy as she followed what I wanted. This time he is shaved down to nothing. Furthermore, he is so uneven and has bald spots. I’m legit still in disgust a groomer would think this was an acceptable groom. My poor puppy! The owner is unprofessional and hung up on me. I will never refer this business to anyone. Oh and the 5 star reviews are mainly for using their baths for dogs. Groomers are awful and shouldn’t have clippers or scissors in their possession! In addition I also noticed he has razor burn with a scab from where she shaved him!! She pics

The dog wash is the best place I’ve ever taken my dog to be groomed! I Informed them that my dog had a seizure at another grooming facility and they took extra care to make sure he wasn’t super anxious or scared throughout his entire visit. The staff is very friendly and accommodating if you tell them your dogs needs. This has become my go to place now when I get my dog groomed.

We have taken our Maltese and German Shepherd here for 4 years and we love it. Both of our dogs are seniors and they were treated with the upmost tender loving care. All the groomers are very professional: Susan, Sam, Alexia, Shelly, and Jordan. We are very grateful for this shop and we’re happy we found this absolute gem of a grooming salon! The highest possible recommendation!!! You will NOT be disappointed.

I have been coming here for about a year now, and always use Shelly as my groomer. I have a shih tzu/bichon mix. Shelly did her first groom when my girl was 4 months, I wanted to get her used to being groomed. She’s been here at least 6 times since. I like her to have a close cut on her body, as we live in an area with lots of ticks, and she’s always groomed just how I like her to be. Since we’ve started seeing Shelly, Chloe has slowly become easier with her face being trimmed and she loves going there. The prices a very reasonable and they treat Chloe as if she was their own. 10/10 highly recommend taking your pups here.

We recently brought our rescue pup, Pretzel, here for a grooming. The service was all around phenomenal! Pretzel’s groomer, Shelly, was fantastic! She was very patient and understanding with our boy. She asked questions and listened closely to everything we wanted for his grooming. The staff was so caring and kind. They all treated our boy like he was one of their own. Pretzel left feeling fabulous, and we were very happy with our experience here. We felt very safe leaving Pretzel here for his grooming, and without a doubt will be back!

This is a great place to take your dog if you want friendly staff and a great cut. My dog’s groomer, Shelly, is amazing with my dog. My dog loves her and I do too! I have tried quite a few dog groomers with my fur babies throughout the years and I finally found a place I’m happy and sticking with!

14 years ago I moved to Howard County with my two elderly dogs. All the big chain pet stores REFUSED to groom either of my dogs. That is how I came to find The Dog Wash in Ellicott City. They were more than willing to groom my two "fur babies" and both dogs totally enjoy all the attention that all the staff gave them. Fast forward to today, and three dogs later, I still take my "babies" to The Dog Wash! I still am beyond pleased with the way my dogs look after a visit! It is almost unheard of any more, but all the groomers that were there when I started going to The Dog Wash are still working there 14 years later! I tell all my friends that they need to go to The Dog Wash in Ellicott City! You will be pleased!

They shaved my dog's face without asking me. She is a Shih Tzu and she looks terrible. They claim she had knots but they were not that bad.

Always quick and with a good cut on my Pekinese mix! She is also an older girl and very wiggly, but they're able to handle her at the Dogwash every time. Will continue to take my dog here every few months for a cut!

Super friendly staff, these ladies try to be efficient with all that there is. Not a lot of stuff to purchase, 4 self use stalls and a great staff to take your canine for a salon visit as well. Ask about frequent wash card!!!!!

Easy way to give your dog a bath. Nice facility, even will provide you shampoo for a small fee. Leave the mess and dog hair behind. It's worth the price.

The groomers were friendly and did an excellent job with my golden retriever. It was a quick effective no nonsense experience. My dog was well groomed. His coat was very soft, clean and shiny.
