By way of introduction...
When I first started in the self-service dog wash business there was no resource like this manual available. I had first gotten the idea for such a service in 1993 after reading a two-line filler article in the Philadelphia Inquirer that mentioned the existence of a place in California where people paid to wash their own dogs. That was all. After doing as much research as I could into the world of self-service dog washes I still didn't know much more than I had learned in those two little lines in the newspaper. Lewis and Clark knew more about the uncharted West before embarking on the Voyage of Discovery than I knew about the do-it-yourself dog wash business before plunging in.
Hopefully that will not be the case for you.
