JAPAN - A machine made specifically for washing dogs is making the lives of groomers easier in Japan.
It may look more like a washer machine for clothes, but this contraption is perfectly safe for pets.
No more scratches from wrestling with unwilling animals, and it is much cheaper for the customer, too.
A machine wash only costs ten dollars, compared to the 50 dollars that is usually charged for a hand washing.
The only limitation is the size of the dog, big ones won't fit.
The machine was designed in the U.S. and has been available here for a while, but so far Japan only has ten of them.
