Our Story

It began with a Dalmatian named Geni. Dan and Jef were working corporate jobs that required extensive travel and very limited free time with Geni. As Geni was growing older, Dan and Jef wanted careers that supported them financially and afford them time. Their love for Geni led them to build a company where they could earn a living with her by their side.

After a lot of hard work, consideration, and planning, Wag N’ Wash opened its first modest location as a self-serve dog wash and in-house bakery. Jef and Dan invested their own income, research and time developing their proprietary shampoos and all-natural baked treats using human grade ingredients.
Pet Franchises

First Step - 2000

Wag N’ Wash expanded the first store into a retail shop to accommodate a broader range of customer needs and include more of the pet food brands that met Dan and Jef’s high nutritional standards.

Big Leap - 2002

Jef and Dan realized there was huge demand for their products and that a single store was not going to fulfill the market demand. They decided to begin Wag N’ Wash’s expansion.

Rebirth - 2004

Wag N’ Wash began expanding, opening its Woodmen, Colorado store in a new building to accommodate the growing demand for healthy pet products in Colorado. But this was just the start.

Expansion - 2006

Beginning a successful series of partnerships with Franchise Owners, Wag N’ Wash opens its first dog grooming franchise in Phoenix, Arizona.

2007 – 2009

Continued expansion of the Wag N’ Wash pet store footprint through corporate and franchise locations in the Greater Denver Area brought the concept and quality to an even wider customer base.

2013 – 2018

After extensively improving and maturing our pet store franchise system, Wag N’ Wash continues to expand nationally.

Dog Grooming Franchise


Stopped in when the place first opened just to get some cat treats. The plethora of knowledge the owners have regarding the products they offer was amazing. My Mom brought her dog in for a grooming appointment and when we got him back he looked cuter than ever. Please support this local business when you can rather than the big box stores.

All Natural Food

We bake our own treats in house using human-grade ingredients. You won’t find anything in our bakery that we wouldn’t eat ourselves. We also offer gourmet deli items, and customized birthday cakes! Our bakeries make our stores smell wonderful because we bake everything in store.

Our groomers are trained professionals that limit the amount of clients they see per day. Everything is done by appointments only. This makes us unique because we spend a maximum of 3 hours with your companion pet. We groom, wash and care for them instead of them waiting in a kennel all day.
