BISSELL CrossWave Pet Pro Multi-Surface Wet Dry Vac BISSELL CrossWave Pet Pro Multi-Surface Wet Dry Vac

BISSELL® CrossWave® Pet Pro

We had all of our flooring replaced this year and I went in search of a cleaning solution that could tackle both laminate flooring and the rugs on top of it. It's surprisingly difficult to find an all-in-one solution, let alone one that specifically considers pets. Our Maine Coon Cat has chronic digestive issues (primarily due to grooming her long fur) and shedding is always an issue.

The BISSELL® CrossWave® Pet Pro Multi-Surface Wet/Dry Vac is a revolutionary, all-in-one, multi-surface cleaning system that vacuums and washes floors at the same time. With a Multi-Surface Pet Brush Roll rotating at 3,000 RPM and an innovative, multi-surface pet cleaning solution, the CrossWave® Pet Pro cleans better than a sponge mop and bucket, in less time. It includes a Pet Hair Strainer for easy cleanup and specialized Febreeze pet cleaning solution to remove pet odors. Plus, with the touch of a button, you can seamlessly switch from cleaning hard floors to vacuuming and washing your area rugs, all with one machine.

The Multi-Surface Pet Brush Roll minimizes annoying pet (and human) hair wrap. The pet hair strainer catches fur for easy cleanup.
Cleans both hard floors and area rugs.
Wash & Vacuum at the same time.


We were so impressed with the CrossWave®, we turned to BISSELL® again when our upstairs carpeting was replaced. We brought home the PowerGroom® Swivel Rewind Pet Vacuum. Other vacuums we've tried just couldn't deal with the fur left behind by our long-haired cat, so we were happy to find a vacuum designed specifically for that purpose. It didn't disappoint. This vacuum has no problem picking up her extra-soft fur and the usual household messes. Special tools for pet hair, the Pet TurboEraser® Tool and Flexible Crevice Tool, are included.

Treat Dispensing Dog Toy Brain Game


This portable, all-in-one bathing system can be used in any room of the house, anytime, with a minimal mess — eliminating the inevitable clean-up that comes along with washing a four-legged family member. Specially-designed nozzles get beneath the fur and down to the skin—the true source of odor—to allow water and no-rinse shampoo to wash the skin clean, while a soft suction pulls dirt and water away into a separate dirty water tank.

System includes the BARKBATH machine, sound-dampening mat, microfiber towel (for cleaning faces and paws), one 16oz. bottle of BISSELL Clean & Fresh No-Rinse Dog Shampoo, and a storage bag.

Furminator for Dogs or Cats

We have a Maine Coon cat who is prone to hairballs due to her long belly fur. We picked up a Furminator to stay ahead of her shedding so she doesn't ingest as much fur when she grooms. It makes her feel better and we have less hairballs to clean up!


The stainless steel deshedding edge reaches through the topcoat to safely and easily remove loose hair and help keep the undercoat mat-free.
Remove loose hair without damaging the coat or cutting the skin when used as directed.

'FURejector' button releases hair with ease.
Ergonomic handle for comfort and easy use.
Sizes XS-Giant, short or long hair.

Outreach PR Canada

Getting ready for the 2019 season and had success with Canadian Family last year. We’ll be in touch about electronics and books this year. Waiting for a couple of other clients to get back to me about 2019 promotions (one does pets) so I hope you’ll still have room for them. I told them it’s getting late. Is Melody still the contact?


Believe it or not I’m filling an easter basket for my dogs and landed here. Crazy I know but they’re the best people I know! 😉
