Startup Stories: The Paw Wash LLC.

Sadie my inspiration for The Paw Wash!

What does The Paw Wash LLC. do? Tell us about your entrepreneurial product or service.

I have three products, the large Paw Wash, the small Paw Wash and the Paw Wash Mitt. They are all used to clean dog’s dirty paws in a quick and easy way!

What inspired you to launch The Paw Wash LLC.?

At the age of 12, I was playing with my Lab/German Shepherd mix Sadie when I became frustrated with the standard ways to try and clean Sadie up before allowing her back into the house. Sadie’s paws never seemed to get 100% clean and the hoses, buckets, and towels I used were clunky and ineffective. I then asked myself, “why not build a paw washing machine for Sadie?” So I did. The timing was perfect for me to incubate, develop, and then test my idea through a school science project. The Paw Wash was born.

What problem does The Paw Wash LLC. solve?

It gets rid of dirty, muddy dog paws, which keeps your carpet and floors clean! It eliminates the need for buckets, hoses and towels to clean your dog’s paws before they can be let into your home. It also keeps dog paws healthy by removing harmful bacteria and chemicals that they could lick or track into your home.

If your dog burns or cuts it’s paw it is perfect for soaking because it is easily able to stay on your dogs leg as they lay on their bed in comfort. All you do is fill it with their medicine and let it soak.

What has been your biggest challenge starting The Paw Wash LLC. and how are you working to overcome it?

Getting into the large retails has been a challenge. It can be hard to find the right contact and person who has the power to make the decision to give you a shot. Also, being such a small company you end up doing all aspects of your business, which is a great learning experience, but it is also a challenge. I have certain things I am better at than others, so it is always a learning process to get better.

Give us one word that people might use to describe you.

Determined. I will never stop following my dreams. This are so many ups and downs in starting, running and keeping a business alive. You have to be tenacious and passionate to succeed.

What milestone do you hope The Paw Wash LLC. will have surpassed one year from now?

One year from now, I want to be in a large retail chain like PetSmart, Petco or Target. I would also like to private label a shampoo line to go with my products.

How has Project Eve helped you and orThe Paw Wash LLC.?

I just discovered Project Eve and this is the first thing I have done with it, so I am excited to see how it works! I love that it is geared towards female entrepreneurs! This is an amazing opportunity to share my story and hopefully inspire other young entrepreneurs!

Give us an insider tip that relates to your industry or the startup story for The Paw Wash LLC.

I feel every industry has the basic ways to succeed. With any industry you need to network and make valuable connects with others. It is important to be honest, passionate for your product or service and have a good support system. Love what you do. I love animals and being able to give back to shelters by donating products and my time for events. That relates to the pet industry and helping animals is what it is all about!
