Shampoo applicator for DIY home poodle bath/shower?

My home shower routine needs to level up. Basil kicked over the diluted shampoo in the middle of getting soaked, so I just did conditioner this week.

My shower shampoo diluting containers got us through puppy hood (see below). We're taking a budget DIY approach.


I was thinking of using some old water bottles with a closed lid and squeeze nosle.. like the green/orange iconic gatorade bottles you see football players drink from.

Basil's my first dog, so we're learning together -- and in collaboration with the PF community. It takes a village to raise a poodle.

When you give your furbaby a bath a home, what kind of container do you prefer to use to hold the diluted soap & conditioner?

Furbaby in question--
"Just woke up and rolled out of bed"

We use nature specialities plum silk & almond crisp and follow their dilution recommendations. Basil's 7mo old & 38#s.

There are inexpensive plastic squeeze bottles -- think restaurant condiment containers -- available at Walmart. This is what I use when diluting shampoo. The versions sold by grooming suppliers are more expensive and come with markings that show the correct dilution ratio. I eye-ball the 1:8 ratio.
