Twist & Bark – the doggy shakin’ shower

Frequently asked questions:
  [vote for,

Q – Why is it called Twist & Bark?
A – Because its furry surface twists back and forth like the coat of a shaking, wet dog, covering the shower occupant with a pleasant, pulsing spray.
Q – Do you use real dog pelts?
A – No, the convex surface is covered by a wide, elastic belt topped by a soft, synthetic fur. In addition, the belt is perforated to allow water to flow out to the fur over its entire surface.
Q – Can I purchase a Twist & Bark for my existing shower stall?
A – Yes, the œ meter wide and 2 meter high module can easily be installed on an existing shower wall or in a curtained bathtub. Also our own shower cabins with one to three doggy shakin’ showers each can be ordered.
Q – How does it work, the twisting and shaking?
A – The furry surface like a conveyor belt can move up and down, but since its edges are pulled right and left at different zones in a rapid, rhythmic pattern, it shakes off the water welling through it like a pulsing rain massage. Lather up, click on Slow and enjoy a soothing, soapy scrub. After another rinse cycle, click on Dry and the wet belt rolls inside, pulling a fluffy, terry fur belt forward to dry you in warm oscillations.
Q – Is this product safe and hygienic?
A – Pressure-sensitive edges shut off movement to insure no pinched fingers or toes. The whole belt can be easily detached for twice a year cleaning in the washing machine.
Q – Is a Twist & Bark shower more fun than washing a dog?
A – As our prototype says, “Arf! [Yes!]”
