Make Doggie Bath Time Easier With the Help of Peanut Butter


Have you seen that video of a dog staying calm and collected while in the shower because he is licking peanut butter off the wall?

Well, now there is a company that wants to make this idea a little easier and cleaner.

Bath Buddy is a silicone mat in the shape of a paw print that easily sticks to the shower wall or edge of the bathtub with a suction cup. By spreading (xylitol-free!) peanut butter on the Bath Buddy, your dog will be distracted and forget about torturous bath time.

Bath Buddy for Dogs - The Original Dog Bath Toy - Makes Bath Time Easy, Just Spread Peanut Butter and Stick

Spreading peanut butter directly on the shower wall makes for more cleanup, but there are also other things your dog might be licking off the wall with the peanut butter. There might be cleaning chemicals or dangerous bacteria that can make your dog sick. Bath Buddy acts as a healthy buffer when you spread the peanut butter directly on the plastic mold. It is dishwasher-safe, so cleanup is easy!

Bath Buddy creators Rob and Megan Hoover love their two rescue dogs Gia and Napoleon and do lots of fun activities outside of their home in Charlotte, North Carolina. But the dogs are often dirty after their fun activities like hiking and going to the beach and really don't enjoy bath time. But they do like peanut butter! By using peanut butter spread on a Bath Buddy, both Gia and Napoleon stay calm and distracted during bath time.

Since Rob Hoover launched the Bath Buddy Kickstarter campaign, there's been over $6,000 pledged. Thanks to 271 backers, you can purchase a Bath Buddy for your furry friend. Check out the customer reviews on Amazon. You can tell that the bath toy truly makes such a hard task easier for everyone. If your dog hates bath time, what's the harm in giving it a try?
