Not just for dog people, we believe in promoting proper pet nutrition and wellness. By educating clients on the importance of holistic food and canine hygiene we can take care of pets from the inside out. Our commitment to finding the right diet for your pet means we guarantee and accept exchanges on all the food we sell. In addition to a wide selection of all-natural, nutritious foods and treats, we carry dog and cat accessories including brushes, beds, toys, litter, collars and leashes. Special orders are offered free of charge and delivery is available within Greater Portland.

True to our name, we maintain a state-of-the-art washing facility with six tubs to accommodate dogs of all sizes and offer many professional-grade amenities. Towels, grooming tools, ear and eye wipes, a large selection of all-natural shampoos and an industry-standard drier are available at every station. We offer both self service and full service washing in addition to nail trims and professional grooming services.

Established in 2004. The past decade has been a non-stop evolution and our "slow growth approach" has served us as well as it has our customers. We opened as The Portland Dog Wash and after six years outgrew both our space and our vision of what makes a clean, healthy pet. We relocated, renamed and reinvented the business as The Dog Wash Etc. to reflect the expansion of our original concept. We're always looking for ways to better suit the needs of our clients, both human and canine, and have always believed in reinvesting in the business to ensure our mission's relevance to the community. We provide a safe, efficient and affordable service.
