Our Story California Natural Pet Food & Grooming

At Wag N' Wash, we understand that your cats and dogs are more than just pets, they are cherished members of the family. We are pet lovers too and that's why we proudly provide you with a store where you can wash 'em, feed 'em, spoil 'em and love 'em!

Our own humble beginnings started with the love of a very special four legged friend, Geni. Founders Dan and Jef were stuck working corporate jobs with endless schedules, leaving them little time to spend with their aging, loyal dog. They decided to ditch the corporate world and start a business that allows them to spend more time with their beloved dog. After opening a modest location that contained a dog bakery and self-wash station, they found immediate success. Expansion began in the early 2000s as they added retail and professional pet grooming to their services. Today there are 19 Wag N' Wash locations nationwide, including your local California store. We are happy to provide a pawsitive shopping experience to two and four legged customers alike!

The mission of Wag N' Wash Natural Pet Food & Grooming is to enhance the relationship and bond between companion pets and their guardians through products, services and education supporting a healthy lifestyle for pets. Our duty is to recognize, promote and foster the positive impact that pets and their guardians can have on each other.

Dr. Kirk Forrest, a veterinarian for over 30 years, and his wife Anne, previously owned St. Mary's Veterinary Hospital in Lexington Park, MD.

"We are excited to bring Wag N' Wash to Southern Maryland," said Anne Forrest. "We knew that Wag N' Wash was the right fit for us. Our view of customers as guests and their focus on exceptional service provided by well-trained staff is the same philosophy we held while operating the veterinary hospital.

In addition to offering pet food and supplies, self-wash and grooming services, Anne and Kirk plan to host local pet adoption events, dog and cat vaccine clinics, and pet wellness seminars. "We consider the store a learning center for well pet care where pet parents are educated on how to transition their pets to a healthier lifestyle," said Kirk Forrest.
