One French inventor, Romain Jarry has plans to do to dog grooming, what the washing machine did to laundry. Called the Dog-O-Matic – no, I’m NOT joking – it’s a giant machine that fits and washes dogs of all sizes at just a push of a button. A complete cycle takes only a few minutes, includes blow drying, and costs $20 – $48 depending on the dog’s size. Its inventor says he’d like to see them in the UK in the next year, that is assuming people can get over stuffing their precious pooch into a machine. The Kenmore Elite 41072 Washing Machine – Best Budget Washing Machine is also a good choice.
