WHY WE’RE THANKFUL FOR OUR DOGS

As we start into the new year, at Evolution Dog Wash, we always like to take a step back and think about all we have to be thankful for in our lives.

When we’re counting our blessings, one of the things we’re most thankful for are our furry friends. Our dogs are like family members to us, and we know you feel the same way.

In this month’s blog, we thought it would be beneficial to look at the history of dogs and how they first became domesticated, and also to look at the science behind why dogs are so loyal and lovable.

 

Brief History About Dogs

 

Dogs are actually the first recorded domesticated animals, and more than ten thousand years ago, humans began to look at these animals as companions as they evolved from wolves to become much more docile and less fearful animals.

The exact time that wolves began to be domesticated is a bit of a mystery. Some scientists claim it was around 10,000 years ago, while others claim it was as long as 30,000 years ago. Whenever dogs began to be domesticated, there’s no doubt that generation after generation of our forefathers enjoyed their dogs in the same ways that we do today.

 

Why we Love our Dogs?

 

There are countless reasons why we can’t get enough of our dogs. A few of the reasons include:

 

Oxytocin

Yep, that’s right – oxytocin. When humans and dogs look in each other’s eyes, both get a boost of the hormone oxytocin, which is the same hormone that creates a strong bond between new parents and their babies.

 

A Loyal Exercise Partner

As we look to make our new year’s resolutions, many of us will attempt to become more fit in the new year. While some of your friends may quickly fall off the bandwagon when it comes to making their way to the gym, or hiking trails, your dog will always be there for you to push you along as you look to get in better shape this year.

 

Nothing like a Dog’s Love

There is nothing quite like coming home to a dog who is eagerly standing by the door awaiting your entrance. When you walk in the door your dog likely will greet you with licks and hugs, and is just the perfect remedy after a long and stressful day.

 

Dogs can be Your Snuggle Partner

If you’re feeling down after a bad breakup, or just simply tired from a long work week, your dog will always be there to cheer you up and let you know that you matter to them.

 

Constantly Changing

In the same way that we as humans are constantly changing as we grow older, dogs change in much the same ways. Puppies are clumsy, lovable and all over the place, while as dogs age they become much more calm and docile. Each stage is enjoyable and it’s why dogs have become such steadfast companions.

 

Give Your Dog an Extra Hug To Show Your Thanks

As we think of all we have to be thankful for in our great country, it’s important to also recognize our furry friends. Our dogs are always there for us and never lose hope in us as caretakers and are always available when we need them. What more could you ask for in a companion or a friend?

TOP BENEFITS OF ADDING A PET WASH TO YOUR BUSINESS

Have you ever considered adding self-serve dog wash equipment to your business? If you haven’t, you’d be surprised at how beneficial it can be. Once dog owners have used commercial dog wash tubs, they never want to wash their pets any other way. In addition, your business becomes more competitive and gets a new revenue stream.

What Is a Self-Serve Dog Wash?

dog wash is a self-contained piece of equipment. It provides commercial dog wash tubs that are connected to existing water and power systems. The equipment also stores shampoo, conditioner and even a blow dryer. It’s very user-friendly and can complete a standard wash in 10 minutes. Customers love using self-serve dog wash equipment for a number of reasons:

  • They don’t need to get anything dirty at home – no bathtubs or towels.
  • They don’t need to clean up the tub used to bathe their dog and all the other places where the dog creates a mess with wet fur and paws.
  • They don’t need to quarantine their dog until it’s completely dry to avoid grinding dust, dirt or mud into the fur of a clean animal.
  • They don’t need to control their dogs, who are notoriously opposed to getting a bath until they can prepare a place to give them a bath; the self-service dog wash equipment is always ready to go.

Can Your Business Benefit from an Evolution Dog Wash?

Installing self-serve dog wash equipment makes sense for a number of businesses.

  • Multi-Family Apartment Buildings: Typically, apartment dwellers don’t have access to a garden hose in order to wash their dogs outdoors. Tenants are typically delighted to bathe their pets someplace other than the bathtub.
  • Car Washes: What is more natural than getting the dog clean while the car is getting clean? Besides that, it gives your customers something to do while they’re waiting.
  • Pet Stores: You probably let dogs in to browse with their owners, and with a dog wash, owners can kill two birds with one stone.
  • Veterinary Clinics: Pet owners are in your location for their pet’s health, and getting clean is a natural extension of your services.
  • Gas Stations: Many dogs claim the “shotgun” seat in their owners’ cars. It doesn’t usually take a separate trip to go home to get the dog; the owner can get gas and a clean dog at the same time.

How Can an Evolution Dog Wash Benefit Your Business?

An Evolution Dog Wash can help you attract and retain customers and improve your bottom line. For example, a dog wash will:

  • Provide a Competitive Advantage: It doesn’t matter if you’re managing an apartment complex or selling dog food, you’ll stand out in your marketplace if you have an Evolution Dog Wash. Given the option to frequent your business or one of your competitors’, the convenience you provide for your customers who own pets will factor into their choice.
  • Attract New Customers: The number of pet owners is growing all the time. When you provide a popular service for them, you’ll gain more loyal customers.
  • Impress Customers with Quality Construction and Products: High-quality self-serve dog wash equipment will impress your customers and become a revenue generator that makes you proud.
  • Add a New Revenue Stream: Dog washes pay for themselves quickly, and from then on provide a continuing stream of additional revenue that will enhance your bottom line.
  • Help You Calculate Return on Investment: Dog washes with electronic monitoring systems make life easy by letting you know when you need to refill products like shampoo, and when maintenance is due. Besides that type of information, electronic monitoring will also track revenue, allowing you to make sure you’re reaching your goals.

Adding an Evolution Dog Wash could be just the thing you’ve been looking for to help you expand your services, increase revenue and beat your competitors. Do you want to learn more? Contact us today!

 

BOOST YOUR HOME’S WORTH WITH THESE TOP ADDITIONS

Your business is increasing steadily each day, and with an improved bottom line comes the ability to improve your home life too. If you’re getting ready to sell your home and move on to something more tailored to your needs, you’re in luck. It’s now a seller’s market, which means you can often command top dollar for an updated space.

But did you know that certain home features will take your home value up another notch, thus convincing home buyers to spend more money? According to an article on USA Today, recent Zillow research has revealed just that. Let’s take a look at the outdoor and indoor amenities that will lure buyers right to your front door.

Outdoor additions

More and more, people want to get out of confined spaces and into open living. An open-plan kitchen is a great start, but it still requires staying indoors on a warm, sunny day. Enter the outdoor kitchen, where you can prep, cook and clean up while admiring the view. According to Zillow’s research, homes with an outdoor kitchen sold for 25 percent more than their estimated value.

Solar panels are another feature that people pay top dollar for, to the tune of 21 percent above asking. Buyers know that solar panels more than earn their keep, and they sometimes generate excess power that utility companies covet.

Pizza ovens are another popular outdoor feature, often boosting home prices by as much as 26 percent. Homebuyers want to gather with pets, friends and family in the backyard, not stand around inside while heating up the home. The pizza oven is a perfect compromise that gives you delicious home-baked pizza and socializing galore.

Even buyers who don’t want to cook outside still like relaxing outside. This is why outdoor fireplaces are rising in popularity, helping put homes 20 percent above asking. Those who gather around a roaring fire while settled in comfortable furniture extend their time outdoors far into the evening hours.

Indoor must-haves

Top of the list for indoor amenities is the steam shower, which improves a home’s sale price by as much as 29 percent. No ordinary shower, these versions use steam generators to recreate the steam-filled experience you enjoy in a sauna. They have glass enclosures that further add to the sleek, spa-like ambiance.

Wine fridges are another indoor must-have, and they can command as much as a 22 percent increase in sale price. Most people lack a basement suitable for storing wine, but you don’t need to worry about that if you have a wine fridge that controls the temperature for you. Displaying and enjoying a wine collection has never been easier.

Another amenity that homebuyers will pay more for? A mediation room. In fact, this serene space can boost a home’s sale price by up to 24 percent. People truly appreciate knowing they have a secluded, distraction-free space to return to each night.

Although people love outdoor kitchens, they can’t always use them if the weather won’t cooperate. That’s why kitchens with professional-grade appliances still appeal to homebuyers everywhere, and get sellers to pay as much as 29 percent more.

And one final amenity that appeals to pet owners everywhere?

It’s the pet shower, also known as a dog bathing station. This indoor feature is an ideal accompaniment to the mudroom, providing a place for you to wash your pets free of mud, debris or outdoor irritants. Usually a walk-in dog bath tub and a detachable showerhead/hose, the pet shower can make buyers shell out up to 25 percent above the asking price.
