Dirty Dog is a self-serve dog grooming business that provides all the tools to bath your dog including raised tubs, aprons, grooming tables, stairs for large dogs, tearless shampoo, conditioner, towels, brushes, hair dryers, ear wash and nail clippers with no appointment necessary. Dirty Dog also provides full-service professional grooming for all breeds of dogs as well as cats. Dirty Dog was started by two best friends who moved to Austin in 2003 and couldn't find any inexpensive options for grooming their dogs. In addition to the South Austin location on South Lamar, Dirty Dog has four other locations including downtown and North Austin. Besides all the usual pet grooming services, Dirty Dog also provides non-toxic semi-permanent dog hair coloring and feather hair extensions at the Fifth Street location.
