Supervisor Salud Carbajal and his son Michael as they help clean sandy puppies at the dog wash that opened Saturday, September 18, 2010.</p>

No more dirty dogs in cars. No more yucky sand or mud deposited on the back seat. Just fun in the sun; a timely, cost-effective stop at the Wripples Spa and both dogs and their owners leave the park with a smile on their faces.

Santa Barbara County First District Supervisor Salud Carbajal and County Parks Deputy Director Erik Axelson joined with Summerland residents to celebrate the dedication and formal opening of the Wripples Pet Spa at Lookout Beach Park, September 18.

Wripples Pet Spa is a coin-operated, self-contained, pet washing station that provides, per station, three choices of doggy shampoos; a warm-water rinse for ultimate comfort and a hair dryer for finishing touches and styling. For around $10, visitors can enjoy grooming their canine companions in a beautiful tile dog washing tub with hose, warm water, fragrant shampoos and blow dryer—essentially the same equipment used by professional groomers. Payment is very convenient with a token machine that accepts cash or credit cards. The equipment is fun and easy to use and near parking.
