This is our first summer with Bear and he is definitely a water dog, he loves jumping and swimming in the lake at the dog park. So this summer we have been giving our dogs baths almost weekly. Bear being the lab he is, doesn’t really mind bath time so much, but Ginger is not a fan at all.
So when my daughter called me from the store saying she found this gadget called the Woof Washer 360, I thought it was worth a try. Maybe it would make bath time easier and quicker?
Well, unfortunately this product doesn’t live up to its expectations. As you can see in the video I struggled with the Woof Washer 360. It works okay to get the dogs wet, but the soap feature fails big time.

As you can see by the reviews on Amazon, I’m not alone in my frustration with this product.
When I bathe my dogs, I like to lather the soap, scrub their coat so I know they’re clean. The Woof Washer 360 simply sprays mildly soapy water on the dog, but not enough soap to really clean anything.
I struggled getting the arms of the sprayer to stay open. The first time out of the box it seemed to stay open, but the second time trying it, the arms kept collapsing on the dog.
For a dog, like our Ginger, that doesn’t like baths to begin with, it makes bath time even more scary. Trying to hold Ginger from running away in one hand and holding the washer in the other was difficult.
The water pressure is low, so I didn’t feel it was enough to really clean the dog deep down.
Water filters through the container that holds the soap, which then disburses it through the arms of the washer. But this waters down the soap very quickly and in the few minutes I attempted to use this product, the soap was so watered down, it was useless.
So I suppose if you want to rinse your dog, this would be okay. But the Woof Washer 360 does not really give your dog a good clean bath.
The Woof Washer 360 is not worth spending any amount of money on unless you are looking to simply rinse your dog. Using the hose with a standard garden sprayer attachment like this one, is much more efficient and easier to use than the Woof Washer 360.
