926 N. Third Street is the home of Pelladio Developers’ 950 Mode building in Northern Liberties and the ground floor retail spaces have been open to new businesses for some time. One particular spot was previously approved for a convenience store (boring) but the owners backed out; Jim Kernan wasted no time jumping into the neighborhood zoning meetings to try and get approval for the “do-it-yourself dog wash” You Dirty Dog. Dirty Dog should have no problem tying up the loose ends needed to open its doors in a few weeks (the equipment is installed and the groomer is in place) seeing that Kernan is a mortgage advisor at PHH Home Loans. The self-service dog wash will feature full and a la carte services, 100 percent natural soaps and a guarantee you’ll be in and out in less than 20 minutes. For more info on the progress and opening date, e-mail Kernan here.
