    Talking My Hydrobath Delight!!

    OMG we have a hydrobath ... I have no idea how I ever managed without it
    I bathed both Gabby and Sam yesterday, mind you Sam just went to play in the mud after but at least he is not smelly
    BUT where as it would have taken me half a day to do both of them it only took me about 3 hrs, and that is including blow dry and brush, and style for Gab. AND I didnt even have a sore back when I was done!!!
    Just thought I would let you all know I LOVE MY HYDROBATH!!!

    Do you have a hydrobath?
    For big and fluffy dogs I have to say it is a must

    You can buy your OWN hydrobaths??? That's amazing!!!

    I bathed Poppy this afternoon and it took much longer than usual to wet, lather, rinse, dry and brush her! She is getting bigger now and her coat is quite long! She is just about too big for the laundry tub! Lol!

    Will it cost me an arm and a leg to buy one? I suspect it will!

    Maybe I should just get one of the mobile ones to come and do Pop's next time!?

    yep they are stupidly expencive hence why after so many dogs and years I have only just got one now
    I have a small water pressure car cleaner and a plastic bath on legs that we used before getting the hydrobath, it only took 1 bucket of water to clean the standard and the extra pressure made it easier to get through the double coated dogs... its was a LOT cheeper

    I don't have one (yowch! Maybe when I get dedicated and save!) but have use of one when I need to. I do find I have to change the water a few times to get them really clean - my dogs do carry a deceptive amount of dirt in their coats... For maintenance they are ok, but I haven't been able to get a show finish I'm happy with.

    So I usually do them with the handheld shower. They just come up better... But mine don't have heavy double coats and get wet easily with really warm water. They took an hour each to wash and mostly dry last night.

    yeh well given I was only cleaning sam so he didnt stink I used the same water on him after I washed Gabby. I still changed the water a few times though but I really just love the pressure and general ease of the bath. We do not have very good water pressure here so it is really hard to get them completly clean... well it was lol

    hydrobaths are so good. used to use a friends before i used to show my old aussie gal.
    so much easyer than a bath, and if you got a dryer, they are dry in no time and all fluffy and cute

    Mum has a Dane sized one.

    Never had it hooked up, been sitting in the backyard for about 5 years, what a waste.

    Perhaps you need to try it out on a short coated dog Ash *nudge nudge *
