It goes without saying that we are a planet of pet lovers. With over 50 million households in the US alone having a dog as a pet, we have many pampered pooches to love in our lives. It’s not just the family pets that benefit from special treatment. The US has about 5,000 detection dogs working for federal agencies. This might include border patrol, sheriff departments, and canine contractors. These hardworking hounds might be sniffing out bombs and narcotics in some pretty unsavory places. They can even be part of the search and rescue team after a natural disaster.
Whatever it is they’re doing, it’s bound to be hot or dirty work that often doesn’t have access to fresh, clean water. This means these brave doggos can overheat or dehydrate quickly when they’re working, and they’ll be in need of a way to clean off and cool down. Thankfully, the RinseKit portable shower has found a new lease of life with that of the canine variety. While their new customers are a far cry from the usual off-grid hikers and regular beachgoers, it has seen a recent spike in orders for K9 units all across the US.
Portable water solution
Steven Winters, owner and CEO of RinseKit shared that “K9 units play a vital role in keeping our communities safe, and we are proud to be able to provide them with a tool that makes their jobs a little bit easier.” It’s imperative for handlers and hounds to have easier access to water. All the more so when they are working for hours in less than pleasant circumstances. As such, canine units all across the US are placing orders for portable showers.
In particular, the RinseKit Pro is a plastic, pressurized, durable container that can hold 3.5 gallons of water and has 15,000 battery-powered hours. With a continuous spray at 50 psi for 6 minutes, it makes them perfect for the job. It can also produce hot water so our little furry friends can enjoy a proper scrub down.
It’s often said that we don’t deserve dogs. They give us so much and we can’t ever really tell them how wonderful they are. Their loyalty is unrivaled; with little acts of kindness and compassion such as this, we can hope to give them back some love. Let’s hope every dog on duty can be given the gift of a post-work soak.
