SELF SERVE DOG WASH PERFECT AFTER BEACH

After a good and tiring walk, followed by a swim in the sea – or even an optional muddy puddle – it’s always good practice to wash your dog after a dip. Rather than take your beloved pet home to clean it why not use a self serve dog wash by Evolution Dog Wash?  This clears any salt or muddy residue, leaving your dog’s fur soft and fluffy.  It’s well known that canine’s adore them, so what better way to completely delight your beloved pet after a swim than a wash in a facility that’s designed specifically for your dogs’ pleasure?

Using a self serve dog wash is not only enjoyable for your animal, but it ensures any pests don’t get transported home. To doubly ensure protection then the medicated shampoo at a dog wash will rid your pet of any recent unwanted visitors, while recommended spot-on treatment provides more long-lasting protection.

It’s well known that most dogs love swimming no matter what the weather, particularly in the sea. Not only does your pet find this enjoyable but it’s also a great exercise for them. It builds stamina, and tires them out while also cooling them off when they’re all hot and bothered.

Throwing a ball, stone or stick out into the waves is considered a great hoot by your pet, and you’ll immediately see it bounding off into the waves trying to retrieve whatever you’ve thrown. Dog owners love seeing their pets enjoy themselves and a play in the water is a treat enjoyed by both canines and their human companions. Safety of your pet is paramount and one should always be aware of strong tides and whether your animal can exit the water safely.

One concern with sea water is that the salt can make your pet’s skin itchy. It can really irritate your pet, and you may find your dog scratches until it eventually bleeds. Consequently pets should always be rinsed off after a swim to alleviate this. If hosed off afterwards then swimming in the sea can be highly beneficial to your dog. They love being in the water and their excitement shows the instant they realize where they’re going.

Many people are convinced that sea water kills fleas and other pests. It’s unlikely that the cause of this is the salt itself but simply that the pests drown. Should your pet have fleas then the most important thing is to consider where they came from. It could be that your dog has just picked these vermin up from long grass during your excursion, but it’s also possible that they could be an already existing problem, and if so are likely to be in your dog’s bed and even your carpets.

If indeed those pests didn’t originate from your home then the medicated, anti flea shampoo available from dog washes ensures you don’t take these creatures home with you – enabling them to infect not only your dog’s bed but the entire house in no time at all. All flea shampoos are a short term solution to a centuries old problem, so the best option is a regular spot-on flea treatment recommended by your vet, such as Advantage or Frontline. Should your house become infected then a full spray of your entire abode, or other treatment such as flea-bombs, will be required.

AMERICAN MADE PET PRODUCTS – A POSITIVE TREND

We feel it’s important to highlight the positive trend of “American Made” in the pet industry.

Currently, 78% of Americans prefer buying American goods when given a choice see:

http://www.petage.com/made-in-usa-pet-products-skyrocket/.

At the Super Zoo Pet Expo last month in Las Vegas, there were pet treats, food, toys and grooming products from all around the world. But this year, more pet advocates, pet shop and pet owners are opting to buy American Made products. Why? For starters, when it comes to pet food and treats, it’s a health concern. American products are just plain healthier because they have to go through stricter guidelines. Whereas those made in China often have no regulation at all. The recent scare of contaminated Chinese pet food and toys has caused people to pay more attention to where the toy their dog is chewing on came from.

Why the recent emphasis on “American Made” grooming and dog wash products?

One reason is that truly American Made grooming products such as a self serve dog wash come from companies such as Evolution Dog Wash that source their materials and manufacture the dog washes right here in the U.S. The money stays here and plus many of the American pet supply manufactures reinvest a portion of their proceeds back into causes that help unwanted animals and the overall pet community. However, not all Dog Wash companies source their materials in the U.S.

Not only is the Evolution Dog Wash the premiere self serve dog wash in the dog wash industry, but it is American Made all the way. This means that the stainless steel and parts used for the wash are American made and the Evolution is manufactured in Houston, Texas.

Bobby Keith, our Production Manager in our Houston manufacturing facility bleeds red white and blue, a military veteran with 25 years experience in manufacturing, engineering and electronic has helped us grow our self serve dog wash business because he and his team care deeply about the quality of the dog wash we manufacture, and our clients care that the dog wash they are buying helps the American economy. When our clients have a question about their dog wash, or need service, they know that they can talk to someone who cares and understands their business. Bobby says, “ I love my work, I love hearing the positive feedback from our clients, and love the reactions of people who use The Evolution Dog Wash for their pets. I’m confident that we build the finest quality self serve dog wash in the world because of that.”

ONE SELF SERVE DOG WASH COMPANY TAKING ADVANTAGE OF 3D TECHNOLOGY

Evolution Dog Wash is proud to introduce customers to their new virtual showroom where visitors to the Evolution Dog Wash Company’s website are able to get a virtual preview of our popular Evolution self serve dog wash.

New Virtual Showroom Features a 3D Model

Taking advantage of the latest technology, Evolution Dog Wash Company is excited to announce that we now offer an interactive 3D model of our premier dog wash system.  View the interactive model of the self serve dog wash here. With the new interactive 3D model, prospective owners will be able to better visualize the dog wash unit prior to purchasing and installing.

Easier Installation Using a Virtual Showroom

The virtual showroom will enable prospective buyers to not only have the dimensions of the dog wash system, but to also get a pretty clear idea of exactly where and how they will be able to position their dog wash unit in their facility, right down to the rough in for utilities. Once the owners have a clear 3D visual of the size and scope of their new dog wash system, installation should pretty much fall right into place.

Manufacturers Using Virtual Showrooms is a Trend

Home designers and the architectural industry have been using 3D technology applications for space planning for a few years now. The trend seeing an upswing now is manufacturers and marketers using this technology as an effective sales tool.

For manufacturers and distributors of exclusive and/or larger items such as Evolution’s dog wash, there is an obvious benefit to using a 3D virtual showroom. The customer is not likely to be able to readily make a trip to the actual sales floor to view the product prior to purchasing. This gives the manufacturer the opportunity to allow prospective buyers to truly view the unit from all sides and from different perspectives.  Clickable bullet points located on specific positions on the 3D model are used to highlight special features of items.  A zoom-in function allows for a close-up view of the product and a zoom-out function gives a birds-eye view.

3D Virtual Showroom is Not Evolution’s Only Technological Advance

The new 3D virtual showroom is not the first technological advance that the Evolution Dog Wash Company has taken advantage of with their dog wash systems.  Evolution is leading their industry with their newest and most technologically advanced self-serve dog wash system. This advanced dog wash keeps owners abreast of their business and features with live system monitoring and the ability to access data from a smartphone or tablet.

HOW DO I PREPARE MY SPACE FOR AN EVOLUTION DOG WASH?

Installing an Evolution Dog Wash will have a very positive impact on your business, and it’s easy to do. These tips on preparing a space for your dog wash show you how to make the most of your investment.

How the Evolution Dog Wash Benefits Your Business

Are you looking for a new revenue stream for your business? Many car washes, pet stores and even veterinary clinics are finding a self-serve pet wash the perfect complement to their existing business. In addition, residential property managers are using a self-serve pet wash either as a source of revenue or as a way to secure their competitive advantage by providing an amenity for tenants who pay for keeping pets.

Making space for a dog wash in your business is beneficial for a variety of reasons:

  • It grabs attention: The dog wash itself is visually appealing and can draw people into your location. People tend to want to take a closer look when the dog wash is installed within sight of the front door. Don’t hide the dog wash; let it be a way to draw in customers.
  • It’s contagious: When others see someone giving their dog a bath, they’ll get a smile on their face. And, when they see how easy and fun it is, they’re likely to bring their own dog in for a good washing.
  • It encourages additional purchases: It only takes 10-12 minutes to use the Evolution Dog Wash, so there’s a good rate of turnover, which brings more people into your location. Further, since the customers are already in your facility, they typically take time to browse through your store or check out other services you offer.

Space Considerations: Outfitting Your Space

The Evolution Dog Wash can be displayed in a number of ways. With its aircraft-grade stainless steel construction and whimsical graphics, it’s an attractive addition to your store layout.

The Dimensions: The dog wash is 81 inches long (wide), 72.8 inches high and 23.6 inches deep. At about 6 feet tall, it can be seen from a distance for the all-important sightline attraction.

Accessories: You’ll need to outfit your space with a couple of other things that are required to operate the dog wash.

  • One-half inch incoming fresh water line for cold water, or cold and hot water
  • Two-inch sewer waste line
  • 110v 30-amp hard-wired circuit
  • If the optional hot water heater is installed,  a separate 110v 20-amp circuit

Suggested Dog Wash Area: We suggest that you enclose a 10-foot x 10-foot area with a waist-high perimeter fence to house the dog wash. Typically, a picket fence  contains the pets without making them feel closed-in.

If more than one Evolution Dog Wash is in service, those units can easily be installed back-to-back with an enclosure around each one.

Other Considerations: Weight and water usage are other things you need to plan for.

  • The dog wash weights approximately 750 pounds once out of the shipping crate.
  • The unit uses approximately 2 gallons of water per minute.
  • The operating cost is approximately $1 per wash. Using the recommended wash charge of $10 for a 10-minute wash, each wash produces roughly $9.00 in revenue.
  • The dog wash is ADA-compliant.
