Pet wash sees spike in business heading into winter season

BILLINGS, Mont. — Installed this past July, the self-serve, indoor pet wash station at All Seasons Car Wash has experienced an increase in business heading into the winter season.

BILLINGS, Mont. — Dan and Rochelle Foos, owners of All Seasons Car Wash installed a self-serve dog wash station at their carwash in July, according to the Billings Gazette.

The dog wash has experienced an influx in business during the fall season and as the wash heads into the winter months, stated the article.

“[Customers] can bring [their dogs in our indoor station] and hose them off, instead of bringing them outside,” said Rochelle in the article. “You bring your dog in, and you hose that puppy down.”

The couple owns three businesses on East Main Street, reported the article, which include the carwash, East Main Storage and Fast Lane Convenience Store, which is located out front.

Rochelle said that the pet wash attracts hunters who stop in for a carwash then decide to scrub down their dogs and grab a candy bar from the c-store, continued the article.

The pet wash is “paying the bills, as far as utilities,” added Rochelle in the article.

All Seasons Car Wash’s dog station is coin-operated with room for one dog at a time, informed the article, and features five shampoo options in a vending machine, which include veterinary-grade conditioner, tearless, oatmeal treatment, normal and de-skunking.

Open the same hours as the business’ c-store, from 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., the dog wash also has a camera inside for security purposes, noted the article.
