Gear for Your Business, from a DIY Dog Wash to Cat Embroidery




Bath Time!

Thinking of adding a self-service dog wash station to your pet business? Australia’s TRU BLU now offers its popular K9000 model in the U.S. Stainless-steel construction and high-security features allow for the station’s placement indoors and outside, the latter making it available during non-business hours.

$20,000 (promotional pricing available through SuperZoo)

Stitch This

How cute is Cat Lady Embroidery from CREATIVE PUBLISHING INTERNATIONAL? Not only will kitty parents want to start stitching, but dog people may be inspired to pick up the needle, too! The book contains 380 motifs and templates, featuring a variety of breeds and embroidery styles, and makes an excellent gift.



Protect Yourself

Pet sitters and dog walkers will appreciate the multi-functionality of TIGERLIGHT’s new D.A.D.2. The self-protection device features a flashlight and pepper spray, and with the push of a button can send “Danger Alerts” to emergency contacts. Made from durable and lightweight polycarbonate, the D.A.D.2 has a rubber strap to help keep it in hand.


Sentimental Smells

The new Pet House Sentiments line from ONE FUR ALL adds touching quotes to its non-toxic, odor-neutralizing 100-percent soy candles. “Pets leave pawprints on your heart” wraps around this lemon verbena, with additional quotes and fragrances available. Keep a candle burning — safely, of course — to show off its effectiveness.



Save Time and Money

CLEAN TOOLS pitches its Absorber Pro Dry as a way to spend less time and use fewer towels per grooming client. The product’s sponge-like composition pulls 50 percent more water from a dog’s coat than cotton or microfiber, and can be wrung out and reused before needing to be washed. Also, pet hair won’t stick to the non-woven material.

$29.99 per four-pack
