Does anyone have a special tub for bathing their dogs? It is something I've always wanted since a regular tub kills my back. What brand is recommended? How much do you have to spend to get something decent?

I believe you can pick one up for about 150.00 - 200.00 at the most. I have heard lots of great things about the tubs. Im going to get one soon.

I bathed all four of my dogs last night in a row, in my bath tub. I thought I would never stand straight again. lol I was in pain...but I did it and everyone is clean now. lol My husband usually helps but he's been on a business trip in Memphis for a week. I was determined to clean the house, dogs, kids and do the yards before he gets hear. I DID IT..YEA!!!!!! LOL

Excuse me ...... Im just so excited he gets in tonight!! :D:D:D

Wow! Four in a row. Surely you didn't blow dry them all too? That would kill me. I keep wanting to bathe Max but then he just gets wet and dirty again. Finally we're getting some rain and the ground won't be so dusty and dry with dead grass. He is like velcro at the dog park!

Yeah, that Hydrobath looks great. Probably a "must have" for anyone that is a breeder/groomer. I'm guessing it's way out of my price range!

For me, the bathing isn't a problem. The drying and getting him to stay still while getting dried is the hard part, he still hates the dryer with a passion!

Right now I have a big roman tub so I just hop in and bathe him and then take a shower myself, lol.

Purple Poodle- That looks like one nifty tub!:D

I don't own a special dogwash tub, I just use our own and
clean up afterwards. It does look like something that
would come in handy for the future though.:)

We just wash Marley in the kitchen sink! It has a sprayer for wetting him down and rinsing him off. One advantage of a small dog, I guess.
