the 'aquapaw' glove takes the bite out of bathing your pet

 

bathings pets isn’t always the easiest of jobs, but the ‘aquapaw’ from designer daniel lentz helps put control back in your hands by combining spray and scrub into one easy-to-use glove. the ‘paw’ is one size fits all, and can be easily adjusted for either hand. once you’re strapped in, the water stream is stopped or started by pressing a button in the middle of the paw.

 

 

 

‘the aquapaw allows you to soak your pet by essentially petting them’, explains daniel lentz, the brains behind the device, ‘and at the same time you have both your hands to keep your pet under control and thoroughly rinse their coat.’ the paw can easily be connected to an outdoor house, water connector or attached to a shower using a splitter. the scrubber’s soft and flexible design means you don’t have to take it off when you need to grab the shampoo, and that it can be used to wash sensitive areas like your dog’s neck and underside.

  • Nice item… good for the rinse period. The scrub is too vigorous to be attached to a hose. …just don’t make it $99.95
