Pampered pooch: Students unveil automatic dog washing machine (VIDEO)

Dog owners know only too well the hassle involved in cleaning their beloved pooch. Thankfully, help is at hand after students in Chiang Mai unveiled an automatic dog washing machine.

Yep, that’s right. A machine that washes your dog for you.

The video from January 2016, which has been circulating online this week, shows a poodle in a machine made of PVC pipes with motorized brushes, running water and soap injectors to wash the dog’s body, with the poodle’s head completely free.

The dog is made to feel at ease by a woman massaging its head while the contraption cleans the pooch’s body.

However, not everyone sees the benefits of the automatic dog washing machine.

“My dog would be so nervous in that thing,” one online user wrote.

While another user took a more racist tone to describe the machine.

“This video is titled incorrectly. It should be ‘How Asian’s clean their food’,”wrote Sean Hasten.

Watch the video and judge for yourself.
