When buying dog grooming tubs you need to think about both your needs and those of your dog. Your dog needs to be comfortable in the tub, but at the same time you don’t want a contraption that is of an awkward shape or size and that means that you have to bend a certain way to get the job done.
Certain dog grooming tasks can take time so it is essential that you are comfortable and buy a tub that saves your back and makes the task at hand easier every time.
With the above in mind you need to consider the following when looking to purchase dog grooming tubs:
- Durability of material
- Ease of access for dog
The depth of the tub is something that you’ll need to do a bit of basic maths on. If you choose a tub that is extremely deep but you only have a small dog, you’ll probably have to awkwardly bend over. On the other hand, if you have a larger dog and the tub isn’t deep enough the chances are that you’ll end up creating a great deal of mess in the area surrounding the tub.
