Bathing Your Dog Just Got So Much Easier Thanks to This Genius $11 “Slow Treater”
I always thought from movies and TV shows that dogs were supposed to love all kinds of water, whether it be a lake or a bathtub or a pool, but then I got a dog when I was 8 and that theory was proven very wrong when my dog scratched the crap out of me while I attempted to hold her down for her first bath. Maxi hated water more than anything, and grooming her became the worst chore of my life. Fast forward 20 years, and my parent's current dog also hates water — it's like we can't win . . . until now.
Enter: the Aquapaw Slow Treater, aka the answer to all of our collective grooming prayers.
The simple food-grade silicone mat serves to distract your pooch in the tub with the help of a little peanut butter spread into its nubs. It sticks to the wall thanks to suction cups, and while your dog focuses on getting every single morsel of PB out of the mat, you can go to town bathing them. Whether your dog loves water and jumps around the bathtub like, well, an animal, or if they're like Maxi and exhibit dinosaur-like behavior when they come in contact with so much as a drop of water, this product is going to save you time, energy, and sanity (not to mention, your skin, which hopefully won't get scratched as much in the process).
