With HydroDog Mobile Dog Grooming, every dog has its day! Our mobile groomers love driving our one-of-a-kind grooming trucks to your location. It's more convenient for you than trucking your pup to a "brick and mortar" groomer, and it's fun for us to get out and about!

Ever seen HydroDog in action? Get a preview of a dog wash in action by checking for an upcoming Bathe to Save event in your community. At these famous events, we wash shelter dogs just before adoption into their new homes. Not only is HydroDog helping rescue dogs from euthanasia, but we can wash and groom your dog, too!

About Sugar Girl Hot Springs Arkansas

My name is April Helmick, I live in Hot Springs, AR. I was born and raised in the Southwest Arkansas area on a farm. I am a God fearing, dog loving Christian woman! I have two daughters, Isabella, and Kirsten. In March 2021, I’m expecting my first grand baby girl, Layla Grace! I have a very handsome boy friend, Chris. We have been dating for going on two years. He is also a huge dog lover!
In 2012 I opened my own grooming shop in Hope, AR called Shampooch, Inc. I had my salon for about 6 years. I took a break from grooming and pursued my law enforcement career. I was a corrections officer for juveniles and then a Max Security men’s prison. Needless to say I missed my dog grooming career lol. So, I moved to Hot Springs where I have groomed under several groomers here.
As I said I grew up on a farm and was born to be around all animals. I had many dogs growing up. Also had a few pet calves. I stayed in trouble for bringing pets and stray animals in the house to care for them lol. Anywhere from chickens, rabbits, cows, cats, dogs, lizards; etc….. it carried over into adulthood where I always had a pet taxi in my car, just in case.
My love for grooming and training dogs came way later in life when I decided to go to Animal Behavior College. During that year I did volunteer hours at a grooming salon as well as the local shelter. I would train dogs and also groom them to be adopted at the shelter. I quickly realized that God had given me a talent and a passion I couldn’t deny!!!!
Fast forward to early 2020, I called Amber Whitt, I instantly fell in love with HydroDog and what they are all about! She got me on a 3 way call with Anthony Amos, which is a superhuman btw, and it was in the works. There have been financial obstacles because I’m a single mother, but God had a plan and I am still in Awe of the journey and it’s just beginning! I’m proud to now be a champion Blue Blood!
My love for dogs, people, and animal rescue runs very deep, and I am beyond excited to be part of such an amazing company and movement. I am honored to offer the Bathe to Save events in my area! I am humbled to give back to my local community and help save dogs lives. This is my calling and I am ready to pamper all of your sweet furry children in Hot Springs AR!
