Dirty Doodle Coming to Reading

Stoneham resident Kaitlyn Fusco is opening The Dirty Doodle, a new dog boutique and self-wash facility, at 143 Main St., Reading. Stop by for the "projected grand opening" the weekend of Saturday, Nov. 10. 

Instead of taking your dog to the groomer, you can bring your dog to the Dirty Doodle and use their equipment to wash and dry your pup. You can make an appointment if you want to secure a spot, but an appointment is not necessary. The cost for a wash is $16 and that includes use of their tubs, towels, hydraulic tables for blow-drying and a wide variety of shampoos and conditioners. The Dirty Doodle will also offer organic dog foods and treats, dietary supplements, designer collars and leashes, seat belts and other products your furry friends will love.
