Are you looking for an easier way to bathe and groom your dog? The Bissell Barkbath may be the best dog bath and grooming approach you can find.
This portable all-in-one system can be used in any room of the house, anytime, with a minimal mess — eliminating the inevitable clean-up that comes along with washing a four-legged family member. Specially designed nozzles get beneath the fur and down to the skin to allow water and shampoo to wash the skin clean, while a soft suction pulls dirt and water into a separate dirty water tank.
There is some noise emitted from the base set, similar to a vacuum, so for best results, your dog should not be afraid of the sound of a vacuum. Training steps are provided in the user guide materials to acclimate noise-sensitive and anxious dogs.
This dog bath and grooming set easily cleans anywhere from a 20lb dog to an 80lb.+ dog with any length of fur or hair with less than 48 oz. of water, versus traditional bathing in a tub which can use up to 19 gallons of water. System includes the Barkbath bathing tool, Sound Dampening Mat, Microfiber Towel (for cleaning faces and paws), one 16oz. bottle of Bissell Clean & Fresh No-Rinse Dog Shampoo and a Storage Bag. Power Cord Length:15 feet. The hose is 4 feet long with a tool hose length of almost 7 feet.
Tips for you and your Dog – BarkBath FAQ’s
What if my dog is afraid of the sound?
BarkBath sounds similar to a vacuum and some dogs might not like this. So to help your pet feel more comfortable with BarkBath, we have 3 features included:
1) A 13 foot hose to allow you to move the bath unit away from your pet.
2) A microfiber sound dampening mat for the system that helps reduce the sound coming from the machine.
3) A training video that show you how to train your pet if they are anxious about the noise.
Is it just for dogs?
It is recommended to be used on dogs (+20 lbs) and is not designed to work on other animals.
The system will clean an 80 lbs dog with only one tank of water (48 oz), whereas if you wash the same dog in a bath tub, you could use up to 19 gallons of water.
Does it work on long/thick fur? Will it clog?
Yes – it will work on all lengths of fur – short and long – because it has been designed with adjustable spray nozzles to accommodate either lengths of fur.
The tool is also designed to avoid clogs. There is a screen on the tool that keeps hair out of the unit. If hair builds up on the screen, you simply wipe clean. Better solution than clogging your drain.
