When we saw that this product had taken out Best in Show at the Global Pet Expo, we just had to get our hands on it. Posh Paws Dog Grooming & Spa is all for reducing your dog’s stress during grooming, and what better way to do this than with treats! It’s tricky to suds up your furry friend and keep a hand shampoo-free for nibbles, but with the Aquapaw Slow Treater, bath time just got a lot tastier.
We’ve already road-tested this in our salon and have had great results with a number of tasty tidbits. Our most successful trials have been the Kong liver and bacon flavoured spray cheese, Prime100 kangaroo roll, duck liver, peanut butter and 4Legs lamb, veggie and coconut dog treats. We’ve purposely sought out treats that are easily available so our clients can continue using them in training in between grooming appointments. It’s just been a matter of working out each of our furry friend’s favourite foods and smooshing it well into the food-grade silicone nubs.
The great news is that the Aquapaw isn’t limited to salon use only. It’s readily available to the pet retail market at an affordable price, so all our clients can have one in their homes. It doesn’t have to just be limited to bath time either – we’ve used the Aquapaw to distract dogs from brushing and nail clipping, for dogs that get nervous in the car, you could take it to the vet to use during check ups and we’ve even used it in our own home to occupy our dogs while tradies are around so they don’t have to be confined to another room. It’s dishwasher safe, and freezable for an extra challenge.
