I have a friend whose little dog occasionally thinks the carpet is the grass, and does his business on the beige Berber. No matter how much my friend scrubs, there’s inevitably a stubborn stain. As a result, the carpet looks rather like a giant chocolate chip cookie. Unfortunately it doesn’t smell like one.

My friend needs a SpotBot Pet. (And maybe a doggy door…) I discovered the SpotBot Pet’s amazing features while sniffing around on Dogster’s cool Cleaning section. (Check it out if you want great tips on keeping your happy houndy household bright and clean.) I’ll go into details about this clever hands-free cleaning tool in a sec, but I’ll put this out there now: You can win one of two SpotBot Pet units Bissell is offering as a prize for Dogster readers! (Retail value: $139.99 each.) Read on for details.

The SpotBot Pet uses advanced technology to clean “pet messes” from the bottom up. That’s the best way to get rid of stains. Most of us just deal with the surface when scrubbing stains, which is why there are so many spotted carpets out there. I’ll let Bissell’s literature tell you more about this nifty machine.

The SpotBot Pet is the only hands-free portable deep cleaning system that, with the touch of a button, removes pet stains from the base of the carpet where they can reside. The products Deep ReachTM technology cleans carpet from the bottom up, delivering formula to those areas that need a deeper clean, and helping pet owners refresh and maintain their carpets.

The SpotBot Pet eliminates the need for guesswork by combining unique Spiral BrushingTM technology with an Automatic Smart SystemTM that measures and distributes the optimal amount of water, cleaning solution and suction, enabling owners to WalkAwayTM while the unit does the dirty work for them. Microban protection helps control the growth of odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew within the unit, keeping it cleaner between uses and making it easier to clean when necessary. Plus, the devices manual spot cleaning feature provides a convenient hose and tools stored on-board for cleaning spots and stains wherever they may be, including on stairs or upholstery, or even in the car. The SpotBot Pet is safe for use on virtually all types of carpet.
