Whether your dog is tiny or huge, young or old, a bath-lover or a bath-loather, properly washing and grooming your dog at home can be a challenge. From trying to rinse them before they jump out, to cleaning up the inevitable mess, this is a chore that few pet owners enjoy. To make the task a little easier, visit the self-service dog washing stations at our St. Louis store, our Nixa store, or the S. Glenstone and E. Sunshine locations in Springfield, Missouri.
Built exclusively for canine companions, our baths come with water hoses, dryers, vital supplies, and adorable accessories at every station. Our tubs are specifically designed for dogs of all sizes. Plus, after you’ve finished, our Petsway associates will clean up the mess!
How Our DIY Dog Wash Works
Step 1 – Prepay
For access to our DIY dog wash tubs and supplies, please prepay at the register. If it’s your first time, let us know! One of our friendly associates will help you get started. Our basic dog wash starts at just $14.00 and includes a caddy filled with the following grooming supplies:
- Tropiclean Luxury 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioner
- Brush and comb
- Bow or bandana
Step 2 – Secure
Choose a tub and use the provided leash to secure your pet. This guarantees safety for you, your pet, and other people and pets in the store.
Step 3 – Wash
Put on your apron and use the shampoo, wipes, and water hose to wash and rinse your furry friend from head to toe. Don’t worry about making a mess at this stage – we’ll clean it up later!
Step 4 – Dry
Use the towels and dryers provided at each station to dry your dog as needed.
Step 5 – Reward
Feel free to give your dog a treat for a job well done. They’ve earned it. And don’t forget to dress him or her up in the bandana or bow that was provided in your caddy at purchase.
Step 6 – Relax
You’re all done! Leave the caddy at your washing station and go enjoy your day. A Petsway associate will clean up the mess. It’s that simple.
