Waterpik Pet Wand PRO

Review provided by Marissa and her mini Goldendoodle Mary Berry

Waterpik Pet Wand PRO makes bath time quick and easy

The Waterpik™️ Pet Wand PRO is an attachment for your shower or hose to make bath time for your dog quick and easy. The contoured spray even penetrates really thick fur, quickly removing dirt and shampoo on all coat types.

"Gets shampoo out of my dog's coat without scrubbing, which has helped cut down on tangling and mats."

Why did I buy this product?

I purchased this shower wand attachment to replace the large measuring cup I was using to wet and rinse my pup during bath time. Bath time is typically a two-person job because someone needs to scrub the shampoo from my dog's hair while the other pours water to rinse.

Not only did this shower wand replace the measuring cup I was using, it does a great job at getting all of the shampoo out of my dog's coat without scrubbing – which has helped cut down on tangling and mats.

Ratings

Overall rating: Rating - 4.4 stars

Overall, I give the Waterpik Pet Wand PRO 4.4 out of 5 stars. This shower wand accessory really helps to cut down the time your dog spends in the bath. Since I starting using this to bathe my dog, I've seen a decrease in the tangles and mats she gets. I recommend it for all fur types.

Parts included in the Waterpik Pet Wand Pro box

Quality: Rating 4.5 stars

This shower wand is made of high-quality plastic. It seems like it will last for a long time, but with all of the parts except the shower connector being made from plastic, there is still a chance parts will break over time, which is why it doesn't get a full 5-star rating.

Value for money: Rating - 4 stars

The Pet Wand PRO comes with the wand, 8-foot hose, an all-metal water diverter to attach to your existing shower plumbing, a suction cup hook for the shower, and an outdoor hose converter. Because the entire wand is made of plastic, it does feel a bit cheap for the price I paid (~$40). But I did like that all of the parts I would need to install and use the wand are included in the box.

Safety: Rating - 5 stars

Bath time is safer now that we are using the Pet Wand PRO. I used to use a measuring cup to dump water over my dog. This wand allows me to be precise where I'm spraying, ensuring the inside of her ears stay dry. It also has two settings to choose from: Watercomb™️ and narrow spray. The Watercomb spray penetrates the coat to remove the dirt and the narrow spray is more gentle for sensitive areas like the face and rear.

Pro-tip: Always make sure to completely dry your dog's ears after bathing to prevent ear infections (and costly trips to your veterinarian).

Sustainability: Rating 4.5 stars

One of my favorite features of the wand is the different water flow settings. Aside from the high pressure Watercomb and lower pressure narrow spray, there is a "pause" setting, which slows the water flow to a trickle. This helps save water while you're shampooing your pup. Now, rather than running the water the entire time, or spending time getting the water back to the perfect temperature, I am ready to rinse with a twist of the nozzle. 

Easy to use: Rating - 4 stars

The installation of the wand was more difficult than I thought it would be. I already have a detachable shower head, meaning I didn't need to use the metal plumbing diverter that came in the box. I spent some time trying to get the diverter to work, but in the end, I simply unscrew the hose for our shower head and replace with the Pet Wand PRO when I give my dog a bath.

"The Pet Wand PRO has cut the time it takes to bathe my dog in half."

What I love about this product:

Time saver. The Pet Wand PRO has cut the time it takes to bathe my dog in half. I can tell that my pup is more comfortable, too, since the wand allows for more precise rinsing, cutting down the time she is in the bath.

WaterComb spray. My dog has soft, fine hair which tends to tangle and mat. This wand rinses shampoo completely with the WaterComb spray, helping prevent tangles and matting in the bath and making brush-outs post-bath easier and less painful for her. You can even control the pressure of the spray, which helps when rinsing sensitive areas. As you can see from the gif (inset), the spray rinses the shampoo and "combs" the hair one way, helping reduce tangles.

Water saving. My shower is either ice cold or scalding hot, meaning it takes awhile to find the perfect lukewarm temperature for doggie bath time. The Pet Wand PRO has a "pause" function on the handle that reduces the flow of water to a trickle during shampooing. We've cut down the water we use during bath time, which is a huge plus for me.

Can be used outside. Another great feature of this shower wand is that it can be used in your shower or outside using the hose attachment. This is really helpful if your pup rolls around in a mud puddle or ends up needing a rinse after a messy poop. Simply use the hose attachment and use just like you would indoors.

What I don't like about the product:

Pet Wand PRO installation hackTricky installation. Installing the Pet Wand PRO was a bit more challenging than the instructions said it would be. I attached the diverter to the shower plumbing, but it leaked and didn't have good water pressure when switching between the wand and shower head. Since we already have a handheld shower head installed, I now just unscrew the existing hose and screw the Pet Wand PRO in its place. It saves a ton of time and I don't have to have the wand hanging in my shower all the time.

Would I purchase this again?

I would definitely purchase the Waterpik Pet Wand PRO again and recommend you buy it, too. It really has made giving my dog a bath much easier. While she's never really enjoyed bath time, this shower wand cuts down the time she's in the bath, and the time spent brushing her afterwards.
