The Dog Wash was born out of necessity for my own dog's dirty paws. I adopted a Great Dane who loved to play with her friends. In the mud. After a storm one evening in 2014, she had the time of her life in the largest mud puddle I'd ever seen. I asked around at the park where I could go hose her down or find a dog groomer downtown. I got a lot of head shakes and a handful of "we don't have that kind of place downtown" answers. I had been wanting to start my own business for years and was waiting for inspiration to hit me. This seemed like the perfect idea and opportunity for me to become a part of the Charleston community AND to hang out with cute dogs all day. I really loved the idea of a spot that was basically a barber shop for pups. I combined the two ideas and with a little help, created a fun and classic barber style dog wash. Three years later I found this fabulous location on Line Street, a talented dog groomer to join me and here we are. For us, dogs aren't just mud puddle jumpers, they are family members.
