They are supposed to charge per dog so make sure you count your pets first before using their facilities. It is not a bad price when you compare it to the cost of a professional groomer. However, some RV owners are saying you should call ahead.
Some stores may not offer this service anymore so you should check. The company does have a dog wash finder on its website to make your search easier.
There is more good news. The company states on its about us page that they operate over 2000 outlets in 49 states. That means you should find a Tractor Supply near you most of the time.
They also own and operate Petsense and those outlets are in the smaller or mid-size communities. That way the company can help you take care of your pet when the town is not large enough for their regular Tractor Supply stores.
Their website only mentions that the cost to you is under $10. But according to some RV owners who have used the service, the cost is $9.95 per dog. That is not a bad price considering you get everything you need to pamper your pet while you get them clean.
The dog washes may have 1 or 5 shampoos depending on the store, brushes, clippers, grooming stands, drying blower, towels, aprons, and more. The cleaning areas are usually kept nice and clean so you do not have to worry about any disease transfer while using those facilities.
The disappointing factor in this topic is one, they do not list an exact price for the use of those cleaning areas. Two, not all Tractor Supply outlets offer this service according to some RV owners who have tried.
The best thing to do is use their dog wash locator and find the one that has this service that is closest to you or closest to where you are going. Some owners said to call ahead as one outlet used this area for storage.
This is one of the easier aspects when it comes to taking care of your dog or dogs. You just need to walk into one of their stores and ask about the pet wash area. You will have to pay your fee but once you are ready, you just go to the area and start cleaning your dog.

The only issue you may find is that many of the outlets no longer offer this dog cleaning service. However, the good news is that some do offer vet services. That service can be spotty at certain locations, as well as full-time.
The vet service may be up to the individual stores to provide as well. Also, make sure your dog is on a leash. You may not gain access to the store if he or she is not restrained.
The majority of those stores are located on the eastern seaboard from Texas to Michigan and eastward. There are stores in the west but the majority are in the eastern part of the country.
The same goes for the Petsense outlets which number 178 at this writing. Petsense is only in 23 states. If you travel to Hawaii, there is one of each in that state but none in Alaska.
There is the store locator system as well as a dog wash locator system. When you are on the road, just type in the words Tractor Supply and you should be able to find their website with ease.

We checked an LA area store and they go from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. M-S; and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays. Make sure you check those hours as they may be different in different states.
