Partner Spotlight: U-Wash Puppy


Rub-a-dub-dub, your pup in a tub.

Dogs have an innate ability to get stinky. You give them a bath and some ingrained instinct honed over the centuries tells them they need to immediately roll in the smelliest thing they can find. And then, tail-wagging they’ll come running up to you, proud of their achievement, as if to say, “Hey mom, I finally got rid of that flowery smelling shampoo you rubbed on me.”

So what do you do? There’s only one option, aside from learning to live with a dog that smells like the dumpster outside a Mexican restaurant – another bath. But that turns your bathroom into a disaster zone of hair, mud and dirty water. There has to be a better way.

You’re in luck. There is.

U-Wash Puppy, at 74th and Neiman in Shawnee, proudly hails itself as Kansas City’s first do-it-yourself dogwash.

With eight full-sized tubs suitable for dogs up to 200 pounds, U-Wash Puppy offers everything you need to clean your dirty mutt. Each station has shampoo, towels, brushes and blow dryers, so everything you need is right on hand.

Pricing is determined by the size of your dog, which means it’s great for every mutt from the tiniest Teacup Poodle to the most massive Great Dane and every other pooch in between.

A great atmosphere frequented by dog-lovers of all types, U-Wash Puppy is a fun, affordable solution to dog bathing, with a knowledgeable and helpful staff.  Best of all, U-Wash Puppy leaves you with a clean and dry dog, while they keep the wet towels, hair in the tub and other assorted mess.

And if you like to reward your furry friend for being compliant (or sort of compliant, or at least not biting you) during the bathing process, U-Wash Puppy also sells treats, including every canine’s favorite, Beer Paws.

So the next time you need to get some spots out of Spot, U-wash Puppy is your one-stop spot.
