Hosing down Fido is simple at this ingenious self-service canine salon in Fresh Pond, where dog owners dunk squirming pooches into stainless-steel industrial sinks equipped with built-in leashes. Handy dryers and a choice of organic shampoos promise clean, fluffy fur. To keep patrons (canine and human) occupied while waiting, LaundroMutt offers a comfortable upstairs area appropriately dubbed the BarkaLounge.
