One of my favorite things about Mexico City is the variety of mobile pet services. Here, you can have a mobile vet come to your home, a chauffeur van pick your dog up and take him to training or simply ring your doorbell and take your dog to the van (think food truck) for a bath.
A few weeks ago we were waiting for the cable guy (who did not show) and thought, since we were stuck in the house all day, we should give the dog bathing service a try. It’s interesting because you actually purchase a three month supply of champú (shampoo) and then you pay for each bath. Trooper has shampoo to deep condition his coat. He’s fluffy and soft after his bath and looks like an old lady who just had a roller set.
Ranger had his first bath yesterday and hated it. He has shampoo for coarse hair. When I came home from the grocery store he had already had his bath and was hiding in the guest bedroom closet, under golf clubs. Although he smelled nice he really hated it.
Either way, I love the mobile dog services. When Ranger is a little older I am going to have one of the training vans pick him up and take him to training. Dogs here do not walk on leashes, they stop knowingly at curbs and can sit at restaurants for hours without going to the bathroom, barking at another dog or biting strangers who pet them. It’s amazing.
