Washing at home can be a lot of work; from getting your dog into the bathroom tub to the aftermath of cleanup. Our facility is specifically designed with filters to handle the hair and runoff. We never recommend washing lots of dog fur down a residential drainage system. Last minute unplanned visits from the family or party planning may not be the best time to fit in a dog wash in the home. Large dogs can be especially challenging when trying to lift them into a tub and manage them while washing. Our building is ADA compliant, which means you can wash your ball of fur right on the floor! Our system drains away the water down a special drain. No matter if you’re in a wheelchair or your dog has special needs and can’t climb up into a bathing tub, we have you covered.
Pet store wash facilities have limitations. Generally speaking, the hours are restricted to when the store is open and often are not open as late as we are. Many families prefer to bathe their dogs while not being exposed to patrons or shop owners avoiding any potential issues. At our facility, it’s just you and your dog. At many pet stores, there isn’t a way to bathe your fur-baby on the floor and avoid having to lift or coerce your dog into a bathing tub. Many of the tubs are limited in size and large dogs either won’t fit or will be uncomfortable. You may have a dog that doesn’t do well around strangers or other dogs and need something more tailored to limit that kind of confrontation.
Having your dog washed at a groomer can be stressful. From preparing the visit with getting fit into a schedule, to the many trips back and forth, it can be an all-day affair. Leaving your baby at a groomer can be quite stressful on a dog and many times, dogs are left for hours in a crate until you are back to pick them up. Prices for bathing at your groomer can be much more expensive and you are once again, exposing both yourself and your dog to strangers and confrontation. Your furry family members are always happiest when they get to spend time with you! By using our facility, you are supporting a local small business and a portion is donated to a non-profit.
We use quality products that are 100 percent safe for your dog. Our building is climate controlled, and the water is kept warm for a comfortable wash. We clean our facility with pet safe cleaning products and the wash has a tub disinfectant spray that we ask each customer to use after they have washed their baby.
Our dog wash facility does have a blower, as well as a vacuum and spray wand. The blower is similar to the type of dryer a typical groomer would use and is a medium velocity air hose with warm air. The spray wand will dispense soap as well as rinse water. (the soap is dispensed at a lower velocity than the water). You may find you have no need for towels, but it’s not a bad idea to have one handy when you arrive just in case. Our experience has been with customers that have dogs with heavy coats, a towel can be useful. We do not dispense towels.
We charge by the time used. Currently, you get 20 minutes for $15. We find this to be the right amount of time for most owners.
Our facility provides a way to swipe your credit card, Apple or Google Pay or use a virtual member card through a smartphone app. We do not accept cash payments.
We are open from 9:00am to 9:00pm EST Monday thru Friday and 10:00am to 10:00pm EST Saturday/Sunday
Our facility remains open during our business hours; if no-one is presently using the facility, you are welcome to walk in and check it out. We also have brochures available on the outside of the building that you are free to take.
Not at all! Feel free to swing by during our business hours whenever it’s convenient. The wash is first come, first serve.

Currently, our Alexandria, KY site is our only location. We are a local, small, veteran-owned business trying out this new concept. We hope the community agrees that this is a great addition to the area and we are able to expand and introduce more locations. We do not currently offer franchise opportunities.
