Woof Washer 360 from Telebrands is a hoop-like attachment to your garden hose that promises to let you wash your dog with ease. They state this is because the Woof Washer lets you soap and rinse your pup from every side at once, saving you time and effort chasing them around the yard.
How do you wash your dog with the Woof Washer 360?
Woof Washer 360 looks like a hula-hoop, but has tiny holes on its inner side and a handle that fits on your hose; it comes in small (40” circumference for dogs 25 lbs. or under) and large (49”). To use Woof Washer, they instruct you to attach to your hose and fill the container with soap.
Next, call Fido and turn on the Woof Washer 360, moving the hoop over their head and around their body. They state Woof Washer will wash all sides of your dog at once, including their underbelly and tail – you can adjust the pressure flow to a level that is perfect for them and they won’t be scared. There are also 2 modes: soap and rinse so you can first lather your dog up and then rinse them off with the flip of a switch. They promise the entire washing process will take less than one minute.
Woof Washer 360 is also said to come with a microfiber drying mitt and a 5-year warranty.
How much is the Woof Washer 360 dog washing hoop?
Woof Washer 360 is sold for $19.99 for small and $29.99 for large, plus $7.99 shipping (totaling $27.98 and $37.98 respectively).
Woof Washer Money Back Guarantee
Telebrands customer service number: 855-668-1655.
Woof Washer 360 is covered by a 30-day money back guarantee, but this is minus the $7.99 shipping fee and what it costs you to ship it back. In addition, you must return Woof Washer 360 in its original packaging and include a “detailed explanation” as to why you are sending it back or they could refuse your request.
Bottom Line: Is Woof Washer 360 a fun, easy way to wash my dog?
Woof Washer 360 has gotten a lot of publicity since it was first introduced in July, much of it highly skeptical of the product (CNET called it “delightfully absurd”).
And while we could see this product possibly working with small well-behaved dogs, larger dogs will likely have to be coaxed to step through the spraying hoop to get their underbelly.
Unless of course you can get your dog to levitate… Or jump…
Therefore, we think there is more hype than hope for Woof Wash 360.
How to wash your dog
Washing your dog is a task that can be difficult, especially if you have a larger breed. The ASPCA has a long, detailed step-by-step process to take you through the entire dog washing procedure.
Essentially, the most important things are to be gentle with your dog and avoid calling him to come right before bathing: he may begin to associate you calling him with an unpleasant experience that will make obedience more difficult.
If you have a small dog, you can wash them in the bathtub using warm water, or use a shower for larger dogs that don’t like to step into the tub. If you live in warm weather, you can bathe your dog outside using an adjustable hose.
Brush the dog completely first, and choose a mild shampoo. First, wet, then lather and rinse avoiding the dog’s face and ears; then dry with a towel. Your dog will likely try to rub himself on furniture or grass, so you may want to keep him in an area without these things until he is completely dry.
If you do choose to wash your dog indoors, we recommend checking out RapidBath Deluxe Dog Bathing System, which isn’t cheap (retail $69.99) and requires hoses and adaptors that are sold separately.
If all of this sounds too daunting, there is an easier solution: call a professional dog groomer and let them do the dirty deed!
