OK, so I thought I had at least one of "everything" for dogs...but ah HA!! I found something else.....a bathtub....and this is the second week I've used it. It's great. Makes bath time so much easier. Because it's warm out now, I'm using the outdoor shower for the dogs - here's the set up...


I had someone build me a shelf that I can put up for the dogs, it's stored in two pieces in this first picture.

This is it! The tub keeps the dogs right in front of me instead of off to one corner....

Miss Ava is very good in the bath and the cushioned no slip bottom helps a lot.

So we go back in the house for drying...heck this isn't a spa :blush:

Done! And ready to get dirty again....

Honestly, I'm not trying to sell these tubs, but I am really impressed so far. Bathing all four dogs has been easier. And it also sits right in my kitchen sink - well it rests on the sides and the water runs down into the sink. The video it comes with shows it on the kitchen counter with the drain over the sink. Sorry if the pictures aren't the best, I can't get my editing program to run at the moment. :smilie_tischkante:

Love the setup. That's the same tub that I had for my son 20 years ago :blush: when he was a baby. Wondering if they sell the kid ones for less than the dog ones. I've seen them at garage sales too (kids ones that is).
Love the set up but love outdoor showers sooooo much. Nothing better than them - coming in from the beach, having the sky above (and hopefully no one in a higher house who can see down :w00t::w00t:).

Don't worry, there's a roof....:blush:....light can come through, but you can't see through it. And, I agree, nothing better than an outside shower!:thumbsup:

And, gf, I thought Archie, Abbey and Ava were the best investments you've made. Now I find out it's a Bath Tub. LOL Need to send the A Team out my way where they'll be appreciate.:HistericalSmiley::HistericalSmiley:

Actually it does look easy for bath time.:aktion033:

Good idea! :chili::chili:It looks like a very efficient set up. Our little Kitzi is the lst ever Maltese that loves the bath (is it the smallish bits of chicken we fed him w/the lst bath?). I have a double sink w/sprayer in kitchen so use that & have all set up w/hair dryer, etc. on the side counter---towel, etc. Some humans would not approve but I don't care---he is like my baby and it is my house. Family is family and he is cleaner than most people's kids. I am investing in a wading pool is a couple of weeks too---come on over. My husband makes a wonderful "iced-coffee"!B)

Your dogs look like they have no eye stain. What's your secret?
Lucky, I guess. Abbey gets stains when the seasons change...but luckily her face is clean at the moment. Guess she has allergies.

otherwise, I give them bottled spring water, make sure there's no food coloring or beets in their food and treats. Wash their faces every morning. And use ceramic or stainless steel food/water bowls. I'm always afraid of stains, so I try to stay pro-active. But like i said, Abbey is my only malt prone to stains...and if when she gets them....well...she gets them.

Pat - I just bought this tub after reading your rave review! I hope to receive it this week. I cannot deal with bending over the bathtub week after week - it's killing me! I'm so excited to try out the new tub. It says for dogs up to 20 lbs., so I hope it's not too small for Jack (12 lbs.) and Jill (10 lbs.)
