Most frequent questions and answers

How do I bring my pet to Central Dawgma & The Dawg Wash?

All leashed pets are welcome into Central Dawgma. Leashes, maximum length of 6 feet, are required for all pets. They are not allowed to walk in on their own. If you are using our self service washes, always put your leash back on your pet as you exit the wash stations.

What time does the self serve dog wash close?

The self serve tubs close when the store closes. This means that you must start your dog wash 30 minutes prior to close (6:30 pm on weeknights, 5:30 pm on Saturdays, and 4:30 pm on Sundays barring any holiday closure.)

Can someone trim my dog's nails?

We can trim your dog’s nails. Please call the store to make sure someone is available to trim ahead of time!

Does the self serve dog wash require an appointment?

We do not require appointments for self serve dog washes!

Can i have my dog professionally groomed at central dawgma?

We currently provide professional grooming by appointment at our Hagerstown location only. Please call for an appointment!

Every effort will be made to ensure your pet is groomed as safely as possible. Often pets behave much better when the owner is absent or theyare not aware of their owner’s presence. You are welcome to watch, however please be discreet. If you decide to stay, please do not allow your pet to see you or talk to it as this encourages the pet to move and wiggle which makes the groom take longer and can cause accidents to happen.
