Coin-Operated Dog Washes at Australian Car Washes

 - Feb 8, 2009
Australia is leading the way in ultra convenient dog washing for drivers by stocking car washes across the nation with the new Tru Blu K9000 Coin-Operated Dog Wash.

Identifying a niche in the hugely successful pet pampering industry, Australian-based manufacturer of dog wash equipment Atlantic Industries created the Tru Blu K9000 Dog Wash.

The Tru Blu K9000 coin operated dog wash was built to make DIY doggy washing easier for the self-serve dog wash market.

It is a fully self-contained unit, which shampoos, conditions, blow dries and de-fleas pooches in as little as 10 minutes.

It was designed for installation at locations such as car washes, service stations, convenience stores, pet hospitals, vet clinics, and dog franchises. The unit is now featured in over 65 locations throughout Australia and the United Kingdom.

According to Urban Animal magazine, the pet industry is growing at 10% a year, representing $1.2 billion in pet food, $700 million in pet health care and $169 million in pet products.
