OVERVIEW

Many pet owners have a hard time when giving a bath to their pets. Using one hand to hold a pet and the other hand to hold a showerhead, often wishes they had an extra hand. There is a risk that the pet moves on and on splashing a lot of water on the person. Also, water from showerhead enters sensitive parts of a pet such as ears. This wrist wearable device is a solution that allows pet owners to use both hands freely. And users can change the area of the water holes and wash their pet with the narrow stream, which prevents the water from entering the sensitive parts of the pet. It makes the bath time easier for the pet owners and their pets.

Many dogs don’t like water and while they are bathing, they move and struggle. The dog splashes a lot of water on the person.

Water entering sensitive parts such as ears and eyes is dangerous because it can cause illnesses like inflammation.

Wearing the shower on your wrist, you can freely use the hand you used to hold a shower device before.

DESIGN REFINEMENT
