GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., March 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BarkBath™ Portable Dog Bath System is the newest Pet Inspired innovation from BISSELL and launched exclusively on the crowdfunding platform, Indiegogo on March 1. The BarkBath is the company's first portable bath system that allows you to bathe your pet with virtually no mess – eliminating the inevitable clean-up that comes along with washing a four-legged family member.
The BarkBath works with almost any length of dog hair and BISSELL no-rinse shampoo. 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 away into a separate dirty water tank. While traditional bathing in a tub can use up to 19 gallons of water, the BarkBath system only uses 48 oz to clean dogs 80+ pounds.
"BISSELL is always on the hunt to create the next product that helps with being a pet parent. If we can make pet clean up easy, more pets will be adopted!" said Chuck Martin, General Manager of Innovation. "Bath time can be a huge pain point for both the pet and the pet parent. BarkBath helps make pet bath time faster, easier, and less messy than ever before."
More than three years and plenty of paws-on research went into the development of the BarkBath system. Working with real pet parents (including product developers who are pet parents themselves), BISSELL set out to create a product that makes dog bath time easier. Because the product is so new to the marketplace, online resources have been created to guide pet parents through BarkBath best practices.
The BarkBath system comes complete with BISSELL no-rinse shampoo designed specifically for the system, a microfiber mat, a microfiber hand towel for faces and paws and a storage bag. Add-ons include: de-shedding brush called FurGetIt and nail clippers to give pets a full grooming experience which are available at varying Indiegogo levels.
BarkBath Portable Dog Bath System will be available to early backers for $89. Learn more and keep up on updates by signing up at www.getbarkbath.com.
