PetScrub helps you clean your dog without the mess

One of the greatest joys in life for a dog is to jump in every muddy puddle you see. The only problem is, your owner hosing you down afterwards.

PetScrub helps you clean your dog without the mess
  • Looking after a pet is hard work. If you’re thinking about getting your first dog, look for certain low-maintenance breeds.
  • It’s also worth thinking about money — some veterinary practices charge crazy money!
  • At least bathing is now straightforward, thanks to PetScrub. This innovative device delivers shampoo as a mist.

As any dog owner will know, bath time is never easy. While smaller breeds start shivering at the mere thought of shampoo, larger dogs will physically drag you away from the tub. In winter, cold air makes the process just as unpleasant for the human involved. PetScrub is an innovative solution to this age-old problem. This compact machine cleans your pupper’s coat with a fine mist of water and shampoo, while also removing the excess hair. As a result, your dog can enjoy a silky coat without the usual drenching.

Happy dog, happy human

Clean your dog

While humans have certain standards of cleanliness we like to uphold, doggos are quite happy to stay icky. They would certainly rather be muddy than be hosed down and lathered. You feel that, at some point, there needs to be a compromise.

Except, neither species actually needs to concede ground. PetScrub allows the humans to fulfill their hygiene requirements without inflicting soapy trauma upon their beloved pooch.

The device neither creates mess nor leaves behind any dirt. It removes mud and sand from the thickest fur, along with ticks and other unpleasantries.

No more bath-time struggles

Atomized water

There are three simple steps in the PetScrub process. Firstly, you can use the integrated brush to remove any loose hairs. This will save many hours of vacuuming around your house at a later date. In addition, this step removes larger debris from the fur.

Remove all the loose hairs

The second step is shampoo, although you won’t see any lather here. PetScrub has a built-in atomizer, which delivers a mixture of water and shampoo as a fine mist. As you continue with the brushing motion, the mist is able to get under the fur. It cleans and conditions your dog’s skin, leaving behind a healthy coat.

Bathing never looked so comfortable

Once you have gone over your dog with shampoo, it’s time to remove the soap. To do this, you simply hit a switch on the main brush head to turn off the mister and keep brushing. The mist is so fine that the remaining shampoo can be extracted with gentle bristles. That’s the theory, at least.

Cleaned and conditioned

While PetScrub does use clever technology, it seems counter-intuitive that a brush can remove all that shampoo. It remains to be seen whether dogs with sensitive skin will run into problems over time.

That said, the folks behind PetScrub have clearly done all they can to produce a pet-friendly process. There are two specially-created shampoos that work with the device, both of which have therapeutic ingredients. You could also argue that anything that reduces bath-time stress can only be good.

Perfect for a post-walk scrub down

“Dogs are always around our beds, kids, and family, yet keeping them clean is a constant struggle.…PetScrub is the only waterless bath solution that cleans and desheds dogs in minutes without the mess and hassle.” — PetScrub on Kickstarter

Miracle bath

That heading pretty much sums it up. PetScrub lets you clean your pupper without the mess or the $60 invoice from your local salon. It won’t even scare your dog – it has a super-quiet training mode.

One smart system

Future upgrades

As yet, the PetScrub team has yet to confirm whether their formula is hypoallergenic. That’s pretty important stuff — so we look forward to the forthcoming update.
