An Automatic Washing Machine - For Your Pooch!

182 Words 2-Minute Listen

Just when you think you have seen it all, someone comes up with yet another bizarre invention - This time it is an automatic washing machine, which supposedly cleans your pooch (or even your cat!) in just half an hour.

The Dog O'Matic, resembles an ordinary clothes washing machine that gently showers and shampoos the dog for five minutes and then gently dries it for the rest of the time. In case the pet panics, owners can pull it out immediately and complete the job in a normal bathtub.

The machine is the brainchild of French entrepreneur Romain Jarry, who says it has been so successful in his hometown, St. Max, France that he is planning to roll it out world-wide, starting with Britain next year.

While it may be safe and gentle on the dogs, we somehow don't think we would be able to take our pet (if we had one) to something that resembles a 'fluff & fold' Laundromat, and subject it to something like this. Would you? Be sure to let us know by adding your comments below!

        I would never use that on my dog. It looks like puppy torture! Besides the water could get in the dogs eyes and ears

          I wouldn't have done that for my dogos, because then they would freak. And also, does it actually clean the pet? How would I be sure that my dogos are well scrubbed with soap? The water can get in the poor pooches eyes, and might even scare the pet... SO MANY QUESTIONS THAT I HAVE FOR THIS ARTICLE. Idk about you, but doesn't it seem like torture? Poor dogos and munchkins (cats)...😢Creative thinking though...

                At the beginning of the video, the dog looked super scared. The water just drenches the dog inside, and this could cause water to get in its eyes. It looked super cute while getting dried though.
