Dog Bath Options

6 posts in this topic

Just wondering what everyone uses for bathing a large breed dog.

I'm currently using buckets of warm water and in hotter weather a hose, but my back is starting to complain and thinking about purchasing a dog bath. Looking for a good second hand one ( any tips to look out for would be appreciated) or possibly a new one.(any brands reccommended??)

Have seen the barf brand dog bathes website and they look good,does anyone have any knowledge on that brand.

Any advice

Thanks in advance

This old thread tells you how to build your own hydrobath. That plus a booster bath will save your back. Not every commercially made hydrobath is designed to avoid bending, but some are so if your back is the main reason for buying a dog bath, make sure that it is the right height for you.

If you have the money to spend, the stainless steel dog baths are usually the very best for bathing large breeds. You can always add a high pressure pump (see old thread above) or or concentrator nozzle like this one.

I have a BARF bath as well but can't recommend them as their customer service was not good when I had a problem with the bath.

Love my Barf Hydrobath, previously had a hydrobath Australia hydrobath, but rinse tank just wasn't big enough to rinse a full coated Border Collie.
