Bissell BarkBath – Giveaway with Canadian Tire

Bissell BarkBath – Giveaway with Canadian Tire

Splish splash it’s time to give the dog a bath.

Rub a dub now let’s get the dog in the tub!

Dog bath day, sending dogs everywhere running and hiding behind and under couches!

Dog bath day, the day dog parents dread and wish they could avoid!

The preparations to bathe my dog and the clean up afterwards want to send ME running and hiding behind the couch!

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Canadian Tire. I only share information on products that I would use for my own pets, for myself, or products that I believe my readers would find of interest. All opinions are mine and do not necessarily reflect those of Canadian Tire or Bissell BarkBath.

Dog bath day happens on a regular basis in my house. I don’t know who dreads it more, me or my dog Edie? No matter how cleaver I try to be, Edie knows a bath is coming. I spell out the word B.A.T.H but guess what, my dog can now spell!

Dog bath day has since been renamed Spa Day, because everyone loves a Spa Day right? Nope! No matter what you call it my dog is not having it, and what’s more, she now understands the meaning of Spa Day.

I can only imagine what goes through my dog’s mind on bath day, but I can certainly tell you what goes through my mind. The set up and preparation of bathing my dog, the dreaded cleanup afterwards, scrubbing out the bathtub, wiping down the walls, soaking up puddles off the floor, and of course, trying to anticipate and avoid the dreaded wet dog shake!

What else goes through my mind when I bathe my dog?

Well dog parents unite!

The BarkBath available at Canadian Tire stores has heard the dog parent’s call for:

A Better Way to Bathe Our Dogs!

 

 

Introducing the Bissell BarkBath, a portable dog grooming system available at Canadian Tire stores

  • Bath Tool with storage bag
  • Microfiber mat

My thoughts and views of the Bissell BarkBath

I took my time to slowly and carefully introduce my dog Edie to the Bissell BarkBath. I wanted this new way of bathing my dog to be a positive experience. I let Edie become comfortable with the BarkBath, the noises it made, the feel of the wand that sprayed out the water shampoo mixture, and sucked back the dirty water off of her. Fortunately for me, Edie is not one to be frightened around loud noises such as a vacuum so this made it easier for both of us.

The hose attachment of the BarkBath is a good length, making it easy to place the system at a further distance so the noise would not distract or bother my dog. Included with the BarkBath is a Microfibre mat that I placed the BarkBath on, this helped muffle the noise. The BarkBath not only used less water, but it sucked back the water off my dog, making Edie less “soaked” and resulting in her drying faster.

The Bissell BarkBath available at Canadian Tire, has answered my call to make bathing my dog easier, less challenging, less of a chore, and now no one is hiding behind the couch on Spa Day!

Don’t miss out on your chance to win a Bissell BarkBath from Canadian Tire!

  1. Our pug, Dexter, generally enjoys his bath but he is heavy and it is hard to lift him in and out. He also shedd constantly which is why this system would be an awesome addition to our home!

  2. I have two dogs this would be much easier then lifting them in the laundry tub all the time

  3. This would definitely make bathtub easier for me and my furbaby. As the article says, it keeps things clean and mess free. It also seems more comfortable for dogs than being put in a tub of water.

  4. My parents are retired now & it’s a struggle to give their dog a bath as they don’t have a detachable shower head. It can be quite a challenge to keep the dog still & can be a back breaking task. This Bissell system would really make bathing the dog easy & painless!

  9. I dread bathing the dog in the washroom and this would help save a lot of time.

  10. It would help so much because its a fight to get them in the bath in the first place, this seems easier and much less stressful for the dogs

  11. We have 2 dogs, and they are always looking scruffy. Currently we bathe them in our bathtub, and this always creates a really big mess. The BarkBath would make our life a whole lot easier !!

  12. My little Chihuahua Dog is petrified of baths – she runs under the bed & when you do finually give her a bath she is trying to run away. This would be very helpful to us.

  16. I have two westies and keeping their fur white is tough. I hate washing them since it is always a mess to clean up afterwards. this would be awesome … not only can I bathe them anywhere, it sounds like this machines does a great cleansing job!

  17. My dogs really don’t like the running water noise, so this would make bathing them so much easier.

  18. We have 6 dogs including a Great Pyrenese and Maremma. how could it not help lol

  19. We have 2 Golden Retrievers that are just mischievous when they get wet. This would make giving them a clean an easy task to do.

  20. I don’t have the set up that will allow us to easily bath the dog.. This would be so awesome. We are constantly vacuumming as the shedding never stops either!

  21. My pup loves to run and go wild when I try and bath him! Hopefully this would make bath time more easier for the both of us!

    Post a Reply
    • I would love one of these. This would be great for us as we have very little space for anything and this would fit in that small space under the stairs. I am sure Blackie would not mind having this used on him but I wonder how the cats would feel?

      Post a Reply
      • Hmm, I’m not sure how a cat would feel about the BarkBath?? I guess it would it be called a MeowBath 😉

        Post a Reply
  22. I would so LOVE one of these! I’m bummed that the contest is only open to Canadians, but I’m happy for our Canadian friends since so many contests are US only – Good Luck everyone, this is such a great giveaway!

  24. I saw this in action and it was really impressive! I think it would be especially wonderful for dogs with mobility issues and/or large dogs.

  25. Since the dog doesn’t like baths, this would be an awesome thing for him

  26. I have 2 large rescue dogs that pick up every bur in the surrounding country then love to roll in the dirt after. This would make my life easier by being able to bathe them more regularily.

  27. after an afternoon at the dog park, the bissell will take care of all the mud, grass, leaves, etc.

  28. Looks great! No wrestling with the dog to get him clean.

  29. wow never seen one like this before it would make bathing the dog so much easier, she always fights and the place is a bigger mess, water everywhere lol this would mkae bathtime so much easier and faster

    Post a Reply
  30. Wow! This is such a good idea! Our Layla hates getting baths and we hate giving them. One of our bathrooms only has a shower and she refuses to stay in it while we try to wash her. The other bathroom has a tub but it has glass doors instaed of a shower curtain, making it very uncomfortable to lean over trying to bathe her. We basically have to get in the bath with her to get it done. This would make the whole process so much more pleasant for everyone!

    Post a Reply
  31. This would be perfect to save water when bathing our dog we have a habit of keeping the water running and it would be perfect to wash our cat she can not clean herself much anymore and knows when we go in the bathroom what happens lol

    Post a Reply
  32. It makes it easier to bathe my dogs because I don’t end up soaked from all of the splashing!

  33. This seems like a nifty invention for giving a bath without a mess! Babu hates bath time and I am not sure how he would be around unknown gadget noises. I will see if it is available in USA at some point to try out.

  34. What an incredible giveaway. I have been looking at these for ages and have never taken the plunge. I love that there was no fear when introducing. It’s such a great idea

    Post a Reply
  35. Oh wow what a great product! I would love to win this. I feel like this would make bath time so much easier with A LOT less clean up. The only thing I’d have to get my dogs used to was the noise and staying still!

  36. I don’t have a dog however have been present for a double golden retriever bath years ago. I’ll never forget it or all the shaking and splattering that went on. This is a great invention and giveaway. Will share.

    • Thank you for sharing!

  37. This looks like a great product! Does it suck away the dried poop and burs from when the dog rolls in it? I sometimes have to use a scrub brush. This would also be very helpful after I shave my dogs to suck up all the tiny pieces of fur.

    Post a Reply
    • Interesting question about the dried poop and burs. I’ve not had to remove either – thank goodness! But if I do, I will be sure to let you know the results!

  38. I saw this at BlogPaws and watched as several dogs were “bathed.” I wondered how dogs would react to the noise. Some dog owner who lives in Canada is going to be very lucky.

    • I think the winner of the BarkBath will be very pleased!

  39. This is a great idea. I may be a bad dog mom but I get my dogs bathed twice a year. That being said, I love an at home grooming station. This looks very easy to use..

    Post a Reply
    • I think each dog is different as to how often they need to be bathed, but when they do, it’s nice to know it can be easier!

      Post a Reply
  40. Oh yeah this looks like it would make it so much easier to bathe a dog. Cool product! I have never heard of it before.

  41. I love this gadget, and that it is a water saver makes it even better. Good luck to all those that enter.

    • You’ve got to love a product that not only makes out lives easier, but is (water) efficient as well.

  42. What a fab giveaway! I’ve seen this a couple of times and it seems like a great idea. Not sure one of mine would be able to cope with the machine noise, but it would be great not to be covered in water after washing the dogs!

    Post a Reply
    • Pawsome giveaway! I used to wonder who got more wet when bathing my dog – her, or me!

      Post a Reply
  43. This is amazing. This would definitely be a lifesaver. No more water all over the bathroom, no more wet half washed animals dragging soap and water and towels when they escape the bath. No more struggling to go to the groomers and paying a paw and a leg for services I could do at home. So this would def save me time, money, and best of all, my mind and my blood pressure oh and no cleaning up afterwards!!! Thanks for the chance! Paws crossed!

  44. My dog is afraid once I put the water on. He will whine the whole time I’m washing him and goes to the very end of the tub so I can’t reach him with the hose. Always a struggle to give him a bath! My other one runs and hides once I say bath time. This would help them both! And me!

    Post a Reply
  45. I saw this demonstrated in person at Global Pet Expo. I think it’s a great product, but not for everyone. If you’ve got a dog that hates baths and is/or big and furry it should be a great fit for you. Sandra and Dolly

    • The BarkBath may not be for every dog, but for the dogs that don’t mind it, it will sure make bath time easier and less messy for the humans:)

  46. We are not that fancy and as long as she’s healthy, Cookie gets a shower only when it’s raining LOL But it looks lovely and a great idea to target the dog lovers market.

    • If I had to wait for Edie to get a shower when it rained it would never happen LOL!

      Post a Reply
  47. What a neat product! Thankfully my dog Lucy doesn’t mind baths, but I can definitely see how something like this would make bath time easier for the less-cooperative dog. Especially larger dogs too! Good luck to all who enter the giveaway!

  48. I had never heard of this! Interesting concept……me thinks my girl may be too terrified to use it, but may see if we can give it a try.

  49. Just WOW!!! This is SO COOL! I had no idea such thing existed but this would make life for my Lyla SO much easier! She has many issues with her legs from one being broken and incorrectly set when she was just a pup to arthritis. She has such a hard time standing for a long period of time in one place, walking etc. So when we bathe her she has a really hard time even though she is such a good pup and tries her best. This would make it so much better for her life! Thanks for making us aware of the Bissel Barkbath!

  50. This looks amazing. If I had a dog I would emigrate to Canada so I could win!! OK maybe I should anyway I like your guy in charge and it’s a cool place with lots of friendly people…..

    Good luck everyone!!!

  52. My boy Darby hates having baths. It scares him with the water coming down. But he needs to be bathed because my boy loves to roll around in the grass and leaves. haha I think the Bissell Barkbath would be just what Darby needs!

    • Our dogs love to roll around in grass, leaves and even mud, but what is it about being bathed they dislike so much?

  53. This would be easier for my dog who hates baths & avoids the bathroom at all times.

  54. Perfect idea ! Our Yorkie is difficult to bath so this will be a big help.

  55. This is such an awesome item! Wow! With having five (now four) Siberian Huskies in the family – who shed a lot – this would be so wonderful to have! I currently have to schedule a groomer to come do house visits, and this would make my life – and the FiveSibes – so much easier and more pleasant! Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway and for all the info on it!

  56. My neighbour has 2 hounds Paris and Billy whom I dogsit on the weekends. They rolled into something in the yard and oh my goodness the smell. I had to bath (attempt) to bath them and it was a nightmare. I was the only one who was thoroughly bathed. This would be amazing and would save me chasing them for an hour lol

  57. The Bissel Barkbath looks like a great product for my dog Max! Love following Edie on twitter and Instagram!

  58. Kilo the Pug is not a fan of bath time so I think this might help. He saw it demonstrated at a THS fundraiser and did not seem to scared of the noise.

    Post a Reply
    • With the BarkBath placed on the Micro Fibre mat, it helps muffle the noise so maybe Kilo wouldn’t mind a bath as much.

  60. Hi Edie & Kelly, Thanks for this chance. We have 4 dogs. Plus I puppysit. We are on Instagram @njnowski I have never heard of this BarkBath before reading this. I am very curious because life would be easier at keeping my pups clean. I’m also a retired groomer so this “no rinse shampoo” is new to me as well. What will they think of next? Happily life is getting easier 🙂

    Post a Reply
    • I’m very excited to offer the opportunity for my readers a chance to win a BarkBath! I’m sure with 4 dogs the BarkBath would be a great benefit to you and yes, it’s nice to see products that make out lives easier 🙂

  61. oh boy this would so many my life easier. My dog hates going in the bath tub . Plus I hate having to clean up the mess my dog’s bath time makes. Bissell BarkBath would mean no having to wash the bath tub and floor right after giving Azrael a bath

    Post a Reply
    • The clean up after the dog bath, I hear you! You finally get the dog cleaned and then are left with a messy bathroom to clean as well.

      Post a Reply
  62. What an awesome giveaway! With a very hairy Husky in the house, I need one of these! Icy sheds so much it’s like it “snows” in the house several times a year. This would help so much with her constant shedding, which results in our constant vacuuming! I also love when she looks and smells nice & clean, especially for our therapy dog visits!
    Love & Biscuits,
