Dog Washing Machine

Just thought I would throw up the pictures I took today at our local Home Improvement Center. They have a dog washing machine that looks dangerous. Basically, for about $10 you can throw your pet inside and the machine will do all the work in about 25 minutes. It wasn't being used when I was there, but other times I have seen people use it. It just seems so cruel and dangerous. All I can think about is water in the ears and soap in the eyes and a very poor rinse job.
Even if the dog hated getting a bath and scratch and bit, I wouldn't do this. Cruel if you ask me. Do they have these in the States?

Absolutely ridiculous and HORRIBLE! It would be terrifying for ANY dog!

How about this "innovative idea": The dog owner actually washes, rinses, and dries the dog him/herself and have some real quality bonding time. Get to know your dog!

I've seen car washes put in a pet wash bay but it is just a elevated bathtub that you pay to use... Ive not used one of these but if it had a hair dryer some days I might. One of these though just seems scary, but I would like to see it run before I said never in a million years...

I think you can see it work on YouTube, and I have seen them working in person and I don't think I would ever use it. The water runs like rain, I would be more worried as I said about soap in their eyes or water and soap down their ears. Also as someone mentioned here "What about bonding with your dog first?"

I have seen these in magazines before, maybe for Europe, don't think they are here in the US - I hope not.

Yes, they have them in the States. I use this self service salon. The Soggy Doggy: Self Serve Doggy Wash, Doggy Bakery, Doggie Boutique - Self Service Dog Wash I wouldn't use it, the automated dog washing machine. The dogs push their faces to the window during the "process"


Before you speak:THINK; T-Is it True? H-Is it Helpful? I-Is it Inspiring? N-Is it Necessary? K-Is it Kind?
