Default Booster bath

Well I was excited to get my booster bath today but am having trouble putting it together. For those of you who have one I am unable to get the top rim of the tub to fasten to bottom of tub. It is supposed to "snap" together with firm pressure but I can only get 2 of them to snap. It seems to flexible to whack hard ..anybody?

Default Booster bath

I want the groomers edition. Just wish I knew if a recirculating bathing system would fit in one while it's set up for small dogs.

Default Recirculating bather

If you have a sump pump type of recirculating bather, you can always drop it down in a 5 gallon bucket of shampoo/water mix. 5 gallons should be more than enough to wet down small dog with shampoo, scrub a little by hand, re-run with shampoo, squish through coat with hands, rinse. I groomed at a kennel that didn't have a tub that could hold water, so I used a bucket... I could even soap up big dogs like newfs then wet-brush.

Default Booster bath

I've thought about doing the bucket thing but then I might as well just bathe my girls in my sink with a premixed gallon lol. I can use my recirc in my kitchen sink but it's splashy and hate the clean up. I want the tub cause its higher up and I can bathe them outside in the summer without squatting in the grass. I like to take my time and recirc for a few minutes. How much shampoo do you have to use in the 5 gallon? I use one oz or less of shampoo if I use it in the sink or in my tub. Like I said I like standing straight when I bathe if I can.

The Booster Bath is not that tall. I am 5'9" & at a grooming competition this is the tub we used & I had to wash my Spoo on my knees. Just too low for my back. It is better then washing in a shower. If you are washing toy/mini there is plenty of space for a re circulater. If I had a choice between sink & this tub would go with sink since taller for me. If you are shorter or younger then my back then go for it. On the other hand if one wants to construct their own base to meet their height then buy a black "Scrub-a-Tub" from Drs. Foster & Smith that comes with a sprayer then I would do that. Although @ $200.00 I would just go to the local hardware store & get a tub.

I purchased one of these about a year ago - here is my review:

Booster Bath Review

Thinking back the only thing I did not care of with this tub is the legs - in order to give stability these stick out at an angle and take up quite a bit of room - also making it difficult to angle into our corner shower. However - this was wayyyyy better than a tub on the ground or the floor of the shower.

This fall my DH turned our mud room into a grooming room by adding an awesome farm house sink, counters and cabinets - so much easier on my back!
