    Default Booster Bath?

    I am thinking of getting a Booster Bath for my dogs... also for friends/family's dogs.
    I would love to get a hydrobath but i can't afford it...
    Has anyone had experience with a Booster bath? Are they any good?

    Thanks...i've never seen one before. They look OK for small to medium dogs but i'd be a bit suss about putting Mojo in one...just dosnt look heavy duty enough cause he would stress abit and jump up on the side.......and that would end in tears methinks.
    But thats only going of those pics...it may be a lot more stable than i'm thinking.
    Hopefully someone on here owns one or has used one to give you the low down. My back is cactus at the best of times and bending over to wash the giant pug hurts a lot...having a dog up at that height would make it so much easier !!!

    Yeah when i first saw them i just ignored them cause they look so flimsy... but now i have done a bit more research it seems they aren't that flimsy!
    The website says that the XL bath is "designed for breeds such as ST BERNARD, NEWFOUNDLAND
    GREAT PYRENEES, BULL MASTIFF
    MASTIFF, BERNESE MOUNTAIN DOG"
    If i did get one... i would get this one, it looks the strongest!

    The one you are considering looks far more sturdy than the previous link.

    Your dogs look agile, cant you train them to jump into a old tin bath or something?

    To me, this looks like a lot of money to bath a dog when a hose pipe works fine? And your dogs are short haired small breeds.
    But if i was buying, id go for the second sturdy link.

    A lot cheaper..........Get a 2nd hand bath and buid it onto a frame at hip height, we have wooden steps fgoing up to it and a rubber mat in it. It will do any size dog. from giant to midget. We also have hot and cold water and use a hand hel shower with a pulsater to bath everyone.........Total cost of bath and shower about $100.00 I love it and we have had it for years on our back verandah. Also invest in a sturdy table (?2nd hand), rubber mat and again timber steps (your dogs could jump) and you will save you back.
    The only thing to spend money on is a barrel dryers (about $500).....they are awesome and you could start a grooming business

    We have some great salvage yards around the place where you can get all the bits you need second hand. Not sure I'd pay for the booster bath - but Frosty and I don't need it either. She's teflon coated.

    Koda isn't short haired... his coat is so annoying and thick :/ takes me ages to soak right through his undercoat... and he's not particularly small either... 30kg's...
