Does your dog need a bath?

Good luck.

There's got to be a better way, right?

One Grand Rapids company has developed a new product to help give your dog a bath.

Grand Rapids-based BISSELL, a family-owned 140-year-old vacuum cleaner company, has introduced their new BarkBath which aims to make giving your dog a bath less messy, since that's kind of the point of the bath in the first place.

BISSELL says the BarkBath works with any length of fur or hair. It uses a no-rinse shampoo and doesn't need much water. The BarkBath uses less than 48 ounces of water to clean a dog up to 80 pounds.

Bath time for any pet can be a challenge. It's worth finding a better way to do it. Do you think this will beat using the tub?

If you'd like to give it a try it's only available at for now, but it's coming to retailers this spring. The BarkBath retails for $149.99.
