When I first laid my eyes on this portable dog grooming device, I was shocked!  Here was a product by K9 Clean that I had no idea I needed.  Seriously folks!  Who has not ever taken their dog to the beach, let the dog run and swim for a couple of hours then got back to the car and just “sucked it up” by allowing their puppy to jump directly into the back seat?  Our Golden Retriever is always covered with sand and mud and whatever else she can find to roll in.  Later when you get home – you see that the back seat is now a sandbox – ok that is lovely!

Well once I was made aware of the K9 Clean Portable Dog Shower – I began to think that is the perfect solution!

But seriously folks, this product solves a problem we did not even know we had with our lovely Golden Retriever until we saw it.  This is something that every dog owner needs. Unless you enjoy having to buy a plastic water bottle every time you go to the beach and contributing to single-use plastic consumption.

Those of us that take our dogs to the beach or anywhere there is sand, dirt or mud know this for sure – if our furry friends can find water, dirt, mud or a pile of dead fish, they will see it, roll around in it and make sure they tell you about it. Please do not misunderstand me this K9 Clean Portable Dog Groomer will not completely rid your puppy of all the dirt and grime from the beach.  However, it will get rid of the mud, dirt, and sand on your dog’s paws. We also use the K9 Clean zero waste, all natural paw shampoo bars to give our puppy’s paws a quick wash with the K9 Clean Portable Dog shower.

The other cool feature is that this portable dog groomer can hang from your car window or the rear tailgate or anywhere else for that matter.

What we have found is that it can also serve as a portable water source if our Golden Retriever is thirsty after the beach.  It is 100% Re-Usable and as a super bonus is very, very, very simple to use.  Using the K9 Clean Portable Dog Grooming Shower is very much like going to the grocery store and remembering to bring your bags for groceries.  We are trying to cut down on our single-use plastic consumption.  IT REQUIRES SOME THOUGHT!  You have to remember to fill the bag with either hot or cold water before you leave with your dog.  When we take our Golden Retriever to the beach, we always have the K9 Clean Portable Dog Shower filled up and ready to go in the back of the car.

I guess you could say K9 Clean does solve a problem that until now, we did not know we had. Although that is not true as we always knew our Golden Retriever was like a walking sandbox after the beach.  An added advantage to using this product is that we no longer have to use one of those single-use water bottles.  Guess today I am kind of proud of myself as every little bit we can do to curb our consumption of single-use plastic helps our environment.
