Aquapaw: Pet Bathing in the Palm of Your Hand

$42,073

Shower Head and Garden Hose Adapter Included w/ Every Aquapaw!

 How It Works

       The Aquapaw is the world's first wearable sprayer/scrubber combination that can be turned on and off by simply making a fist. Its one-size-fits-all design allows you to better control your pet as well as the flow of water while you clean your best friend.

 

 

Benefits

          If you’ve washed your dog, you know the pains associated with bath time blunder – water spraying every which way while you try to control a squirming dog and then finding soap spots on Fido once the hose has been shut off.  With Aquapaw, water is injected into your pet’s coat for a faster rinse than traditional sprayers and it allows you to control your pet during the entire process.  It all but eliminates excess spraying water and the intimidation factor for your pet!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Installation

The hose quick-connects to either a garden hose with our adapter or behind a shower head using our simple to install splitter which are both included with every Aquapaw.

 

Installing the Aquapaw in a Shower in less than 90 seconds!

 Manufacturing

Our stellar manufacturing partner has worked with us to adequately prepare for your pre-orders.  While we work to have your Aquapaw made all you have to do is practice waxing on and waxing off, young grasshopper.

 

 

Development

Daniel grew up bathing his family's dogs with the knowledge that there had to be a way to make bath time better for all parties involved. After college, Daniel conceived the idea for Aquapaw and has spent the last few years building prototypes in his free time. About a year and a half ago, he reached a point where he thought he had a real, manufacturable product that he was positive would improve the bathing process, so he founded Aquapaw and starting to prepare its launch.

Many prototypes have been made and tested over the past year to refine the design to what it is today.

 

                                                                                                      

All the prototypes were assembled using 3D printed parts and by molding silicone in 3D printed molds.

Risks and challenges

We have taken extreme care in planning the execution of this product but there are inherent challenges involved in the manufacturing and delivery process.

The most unique part of this product is the design of the actuator and how it is assembled into the rubber body of the tool. We have built and tested dozens of prototypes to refine the design and have a plan to test first samples to ensure they perform to the highest level.

Overall, our design is based on conventional materials and manufacturing processes and if any technical issues do come up, we have extensive experience in finding solutions and making adjustments.

We intend to deliver your Aquapaw to your doorstep as soon as it is ready. Our hope is to ship as early as June 2017 but as many projects can be delayed we have promised delivery not later than Sept 2017.
