Tips for you and your Dog - BarkBath FAQ's
What if my dog is afraid of the sound?
BarkBath sounds similar to a vacuum and some dogs might not like this. So to help your pet feel more comfortable with BarkBath, we have 3 features included:
1) A 13 foot hose to allow you to move the bath unit away from your pet.
2) A microfiber sound dampening mat for the system that helps reduce the sound coming from the machine.
3) A training video that show you how to train your pet if they are anxious about the noise.
Is it just for dogs?
It is recommended to be used on dogs and is not designed to work on other animals.
The system will clean an 80 lbs dog with only one tank of water (48 oz), whereas if you wash the same dog in a bath tub, you could use up to 19 gallons of water.
Does it work on long/thick fur? Will it clog?
Yes – it will work on all lengths of fur – short and long – because it has been designed with adjustable spray nozzles to accommodate either lengths of fur.
The tool is also designed to avoid clogs. There is a screen on the tool that keeps hair out of the unit. If hair builds up on the screen, you simply wipe clean. Better solution than clogging your drain!

A Bath without a Splash! Give your dog a bath anywhere, anytime!
Clean Water Tank - No Splash, Less Mess.
The clean water tank is filled with warm tap water for washing your dog. Keeping the water contained, allowing for bath without the splash.
Shampoo Reservoir and No Rinse Shampoo.
Bissell's No-Rinse Shampoo goes into the reservoir. The shampoo mixes with the clean water and the tool sprays the water/shampoo solution under the fur onto the skin of the dog. This new bathing system helps reduce the water needed for a traditional dog bath.
Dirty Water Tank - Mess Contained.
Gentle suction from the tool sucks the dirt and odors off your dog. The dirty water goes back into this tank containing the mess.
How the Dog Bathing Tool Works
Connect Tool and Add No Rinse Shampoo
The BarkBath tool washes your dog from the skin up, not from the fur down for a more thorough bathing experience. The first time you use your BarkBath you will need to prime the system for 15-20 seconds before connecting the bathing tool. Easy first step and ready to bathe!
Specially Designed Nozzle Goes Beneath the Fur - works on long and short fur
The nozzle goes beneath the fur and sprays warm water and shampoo onto your dog's skin. The nozzle design allows you to easily remove any hair that may build up on the surface of the tool. It's an easier way to manage the hair that sheds during the bathing process and it won't clog the tool or your drain!
Cleaning from the skin up and quick dry time
Water and shampoo wash the skin clean, while a soft suction pulls dirt and debris away into a separate dirty water tank.

Bissell would do well to invest some time reducing the noise level. Jack and Oliver are not particularly skittish but the sound and instrument right up against them had them trembling. They're just 6-month pups so that should be factored into their reaction. However, I know from apartment days some vacuum cleaners are designed to be quieter--so too should the BarkBath. Really nervous dogs are NOT going to like this one bit. Also, wheels would be nice: as the dog moves (and you should plan on them trying to get away) you have to keep moving the unit manually over or around. I think Jack found moving the machine around as disconcerting as the noise.
Depending on your dog's personality the above constraints are either quibbles or they're deal breakers. For normal or laid back canines, this is great for owners, a bit of a nuisance for the pet. For the skittish and nervous it would be very, very stressful.
APRIL 8 UPDATE: the second bath for each was better.. Ollie went first this time since Jack was the most upset. He seemed more annoyed than troubled. Jack went next and while he didn't like it, he was less frightened than the first time--DEFINITELY wanted to get away but wasn't trembling. Real progress plus having used it 4 times now, we've gotten the knack and are faster and less clumsy. It uses far less water and takes less time, plus it is LOADS less messy than a bathtub.
