Pet Amenities at RV Parks and CampgroundsEvy Rutherford
The Covid pandemic has seen a dramatic increase in dog ownership. Today more than 40% of Canadian households own one or more dogs and are spending more than 8 billion a year in pet amenities, particularly dog grooming services.
RV Parks and campgrounds are popular choices for dog owners. The trend towards having all campgrounds become pet friendly means that parks are having to quickly add services for dogs to keep up with competitors.
Many RV Parks and Campgrounds offer vending machines and small shops to supplement their income, but few offer amenities for dogs that generate revenue. While offering an off-leash area is a great feature, keeping dogs clean while having fun outdoors, remains the number one challenge for pet owners.
Providing a pet wash area for your guests to bathe their dogs is a valuable pet grooming service. It eliminates dirty dog frustrations and can even generate income for your campground.
Why Offer a Dog Wash Station at your Campground?
A dog wash station is a great pet perk! Here are some reasons why offering our dog wash is a big benefit for you and your guests:
- Our pet washes are self-serve so guests can use at their convenience any time of day
- The machines can run independently without constant staff oversight
- Wash products and blow dryer are conveniently built in
- Comes with a disinfect cycle for guests to sanitize the tub after each use
How can you profit from adding a Dog Wash?
A Furever Clean Dog Wash is an excellent revenue generating opportunity. There are a number of ways you can profit from adding a dog wash machine:
- Expand your reputation as a pet friendly park
- Provide a valuable amenity that many of your competitors do not

- Increase your profits even more with one of our pet vending machines so your guests can purchase treats and other products for their dogs
