/ BARKBATH PORTABLE DOG BATH
industrial design / engineering
Users can now bathe their dog virtually anywhere with the mess-free BARKBATH portable bathing device. We helped develop the system’s convenient one-step wash/dry process that vacuums up a combined water/shampoo solution in a natural “petting” motion. The unique nozzle gets beneath the animal’s fur, lifting away dirt and separating the dirty water into a clear tank where effectiveness is easily observed. The result? A cleaner, happier dog and drier owner—all while consuming dramatically less water (a 40-oz. supply of clean water will completely wash an 80-lb. dog, versus a traditional bath that can use up to 19 gallons).

Bark Bath Portable Dog Bath received a Good Design® Award from Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and was also a finalist in the 2017 International Design Excellence Awards.
