The article reports about a new automatic dog washing system. The dog is placed in a unit, where it is dosed in warm water by 32 low-pressure sprinklers, which remove soil and fleas. The temperature of water is kept bearable for the dog. It takes about 15 minutes to clean a short-haired dog, while about half-an-hour to clean a long-haired one. The unit is safe for all breeds of dogs. The unit costs about $40,000. Car washing and coin laundries may get interested in providing this service.
