Giggle Do's & Giggle Don'ts

Giggle Do

Relax and enjoy the experience! There is no wrong way to wash your dog - just learning experiences. 

Giggle Do

One trick which may be helpful: if your furbaby is an excitable or energetic canine, celebrate by a quick walk around the neighborhood. This can help release nervous energy before bath time.

Giggle Do

Stop by and say hello! If your pupper is nervous about baths then introduce them to us any time, even for a quick stop for a treat and drink of water. Stopping by and walking in and not having a bath helps them associate Gigglechops with fun!

Giggle Don't

Feel bad if your dog is a crybaby or a little high maintenance. Dogs like people learn with practice. We are all in this experience together!

Giggle Don't

Leave your dog unattended. Our canine friends know when we aren't paying attention and can sometimes find themselves getting into trouble. Please bring your doggy on a leash!

Giggle Don't

Please don't forget to bring your doggy poop bags in case your furbaby "takes care of business" on the way. We all want to be good neighbors to our local business and residents.


Why the name "Gigglechops"?

It is one of the nicknames for our golden retriever, Winston

When will Gigglechops Dog Wash open?

Hopefully around Halloween of 2017
