When it comes to taking care of your pets, you probably spoil them with subscription boxes filled with treats and all-natural dog food. But for that dreaded pet task on your to-do list (ahem, giving your dog a bath), there’s a handy tool that’ll get the job done even faster.
Being a pet parent can bring so much joy, but we know bathing your dog can bring about added challenges, too. If you don’t want to get your own bathroom dirty to give your dog a bath, the Waterpik Pet Wand Sprayer attaches directly to an outdoor hose via the outdoor adapter so that the mess is contained.
Shop: Waterpik Pet Wand Pro Shower Sprayer Attachment, $33+
Using the wand allows you to give your pets a professional-grade shower, and it can wash dogs of all sizes. And while you might use it mainly outside with the hose, it’s also easy to install in your shower so that you can switch between the shower head and the Pet Wand.
Because of its contoured, narrow design and small holes to direct the water, you’ll get a powerful stream with three water pressure settings, which helps remove shampoo and penetrate thick fur coats.
Plus, not only does the wand include an outdoor adapter for hose washes, but you’ll also receive an 8-foot flexible hose that can attach to your current water hose and allows for an extended reach. And for indoor showers, you’ll get an included suction cup hook to hang the wand in between cleanings.
With more than 1,000 five-star reviews, pet parents are raving that this clever device is a necessity — it makes baths less traumatic, and it actually helps thoroughly clean dogs with thick coats.
“Owners of long-haired/thick-coated breeds: This is what you’ve been looking for,” one reviewer said. “I’ve waited over 20 years for this. The water flow (even at low pressure) is excellent and will clean a thick undercoat.”
Reviewers can't stress enough that if you have dogs with lots of fur, this device is the only thing they've found that works.
"I bathe four dogs a month and have bought about every kind of dog shower out there," another customer said. "So far this has not only outlasted all the others, but the dogs really like this. I have shepherds with the thick coats and was afraid this wouldn't get through their coats, but it rinses soap out of their coats very well."
And if your fur babies are completely scared of baths, the wand will help ease their fear, too.
"I honestly didn't think this would work, but bath times have been so painful, I was willing to try anything that could help improve them," they said. "Buying this wand has cut our bath times from 10-15 minutes to 5 minutes tops."
While a majority of customers say it’s also helpful to bathe sensitive areas around some dogs’ faces, the only con reviewers mention is that it tends to leak once the device is off.
But if your furry friend needs frequent bathing, this device is a must-have — your dog will thank you.
