Anyone else have an issue with this? I actually enjoy giving my boys a bath and they get into the shower without me having to force them. I can't imagine putting them into something like this. This is such a disturbing concept, not to mention a great way to make your dog terrified of water! Look at his face, I doubt he's enjoying it!

Yeah. That dog looks miserable and those built in dryers always worry me.

That poor poodle looked like it was clamoring for comfort after it got out of that horrible contraption.

Strange what people will think of! None of my babies enjoy baths, my JRT used to get in the shower with me when he was young but he quit that after he figured out that I wasn't disappearing! The one thing that really bothers me about this is the "no touching" involved. When I give my dogs a bath, I use that time to really go over skin, eyes, ears, etc., with my hands, feeling for anything that is 'not right.' Could be something simple as a missed sticker, or something odd like a bump I didn't notice. Some of my guys are awfully furry and even with brushing alone I could miss something that could have been easily taken care of right away that I catch with my hands. I think that makes sense, if ya'll know what I mean. Besides, ha ha, I was brought up with the saying that if you didn't sweat some while bathing your dog, you didn't get the dog very clean, go do it again.

My mom and I saw this last night and she said, "Why not just strap them to the roof of the car and go through the car wash?"

Terrible invention. Poor doggies......

I couldn't even watch the whole thing. Dog looks terrified! Just plain looks cruel!
As a kid, we had a dryer that could be stopped from tumbling. Our dog...then a huge standard poodle..(but so far from one's idea of a "poodle) named Mike, would jump from the tub in our cellar, right into the dryer (front loader, of course) and we would leave the door open, and hold down the start button with our finger...He loved to go into the dryer! Always came out soft and fluffy! If the door was open, he would jump in, needing a dry or not!
