Do you have a dirty dog? Are you tired of having to clean your dog yourself?
Luckily, there is a place to relieve your dog washing woes right on Main Street.
U Dirty Dawg is a self-serve dog wash, grooming service center and retailer that opened in July 2009. Owner Carol Swarthout was inspired to open a self-serve dog wash after hearing about the concept from her daughter. Carol’s daughter visited a self-serve dog wash in Colorado Springs and was so impressed with the concept she shared it with her mother.
After months of researching and visiting dog washes across the nation, Carol was able to open her own in Jenks.
She chose to open her business in Jenks because she loved the idea of opening a business here.
“Jenks has a feeling of belonging and it is much more than a community; it is like working with a big family,” she said.
The name of her business was coined by her own four-legged companion, Chloe. When Chloe was a mess, Carol would exclaim “you dirty dog!” The phrase stuck with her and the business.
The goal of U Dirty Dawg is to be a stress-free environment for dogs and their owners by taking the hassle out of grooming in a clean and fun facility. Her employees all share the same passion she has for animals, which helps to create a comforable place for pets and their owners.
