Between the soap suds and abrupt jets of water, bathtime is a common bane for many pooches (and their paw-rents). However, with the launch of the innovative Aquapaw Pet Bathing Tool, you can now tranform your pup's weekly shower into a bonding session.

Invented by David Lentz, a professional industrial designer who grew up with dogs, Aquapaw is the world’s first wearable pet cleaning device that's aimed at creating a simpler and more comforting bathing experience for pooches.

Combining a water sprayer with a rubber scrubber, the device is meant to be hooked up to a hose or showerhead on one end while the side with the scrubber wraps around your palm via an adjustable strap. A button located at the centre of the contraption allows you to stop or start the stream of water, so you literally have control in the palm of your hand.

Offering the same pressure as that of a conventional showerhead, the Aquapaw's built-in scrub basically lets you soak, scrub and rinse your furkid by stroking him—a win-win for the both of you! Plus, it's soft and flexible, allowing you reach Fido's most sensitive spots, hold him still with both hands, and even pick up shampoo bottles.

The product (including the adapter, diverter and sealing tape) costs US$30 (S$41.89). Available for preorders and ready for shipping by mid-July. International shipping costs $12. Find out more at www.aquapaw.com.
