Bath time for pets can be a real pain, depending on the animal. With cats a sink is best, but with dogs it’s the tub/shower or the backyard hose. Not all pets are cooperative in the process, making it a real ordeal if you’ve got a particularly slippery eel on your hands. There are a variety of gizmos out there that promise to get the job done, but personally I’ve always found hand-held shower nozzles to be a godsend when it comes to a dog bath. Now, somebody has come out with a product called Woof Washer that works on that principle while providing a 360-degree bathing experience, so you can accomplish the task in half the time.
Woof Washer 360 Dog Bath
So, how do you provide a 360-degree bathing experience? The lightweight collapsible contraption turns into a halo of sorts, that’s how. The thing about this latest attempt at building a better mousetrap is that the attachment is filled with dog shampoo at the base, so you’re sudsing as you work. This is super handy if you’ve got to hold your dog still when washing them. Add a shampoo bottle into the mix and good luck. With the Woof Washer 360, all you do is screw the device onto a hose and it operates in two modes, wash and rinse. The manufacturer claims the easy-to-control water pressure from dozens of jets works like a massage for your pet.
That’s because you can increase or decrease the water pressure to accommodate your pet’s personal preference or adjust for fur density. Obviously, a small dog with short hair is not going to need or tolerate the same kind of water pressure as a larger dog with thick hair. This makes the product customizable, which is a huge plus. One tool for all your pets saves money and storage space, which is another plus. Because the halo is not solid in construction, it’s got some flexibility on size expansion. This way the company is able to say it fits any size dog. Whether or not you can wash your dog with it in under a minute is another thing. Three maybe.
How to Give a Dog a Bath
If you have a really small dog or live in an apartment this product probably isn’t for you. For starters, you need a hose, so that means you have to go outside — unless you hook it up to a laundry sink. As with introducing any new bathing or grooming technique, take your time with your pets when you first start using it. Get them accustomed to it slowly so that they feel safe as you start, or they might associate it with negative connotations and fight you every time you pull it out. Some dogs are already prone to freaking out at hoses and will attack the water the minute it starts spraying. If you dog ever does this, don’t encourage it. You’ll regret it in the long run.
