It’s a dog’s life – on the forecourt!

It’s a dog’s life – on the forecourt!
Barks and Bubbles

As forecourts continue to become destination centres for a range of activities and facilities – with something for all the family, one enterprising Irish forecourt owner has introduced a fantastic dog washing facility.

Johnny Brady is not the first in Ireland to make the forecourt the ideal destination for a fuss free place to pamper your pet – there are a few others around Ireland, but here at IFCR we can see that there could be a big demand for more in the future.

For a start – washing a dog at home is a very messy business. Hence, the number of dog grooming parlours that have sprung up across Ireland over the past decade or so. However for many busy families, the forecourt can become the destination station not just for fuel, a clean car inside and out, bathroom facilities, a place to have a good meal, stock up at the shop – and now, on the new-look forecourt near Ashbourne, there’s an on-site dog washing facilities – called Barks ‘n’ Bubbles – Your No 1 Dog Wash.

It’s contactless too – so ideal in times of Covid.

We think this is an inspired idea at IFCR – congratulations to Johnny Brady in Ashbourne for the ingenuity – with all the neighbourhood dogs from far and near looking groomed and squeaky clean.

It’s worth some paws for thought!
