Meet Oliver & Lulu, the pups who inspired the Twin Cities first self-serve dog wash... Ollu!
After raising these litter mates in San Diego, California, Minnesota native Jodel Hunt decided it was time to leave the beaches of San Diego and return to her home state. A new home comes with new challenges, and suddenly Oliver, Lulu and Jodel found themselves without the dependable local self-service dog washes that they'd become accustomed to out west.
Jodel was tired of dirty dogs, inconvenient trips to the groomer, cold water from the backyard hose, and back aches from washings in the family tub. Jodel decided enough was enough. Necessity is the mother of invention; in an effort to solve her own problem, Jodel created Ollu.
Ollu continued growing and changing since it opened in 2009. In April, 2015, Jodel and her team packed boxes and moved Ollu up the street. After five and a half years of customers fighting to find parking, Ollu now has a parking lot of its own as well as expanded space for grooming.
*Last wash accepted an hour prior to closing.
