Over the last few years, we have been installing more and more of these dog showers in people's homes. We have been asked many times, why would someone put a dog shower in their home?
The answers are - What do you do with a dog that has been rolling around in the mud or worse, sprayed by a skunk? How do you transport them in your car
to a groomer? You may be able to clean up the mud, but skunk oil will penetrate
your upholstery and is pretty much impossible to remove off of fabrics and carpets. It is one of the foulest odors known to man (and to dogs too!) The dog shower keeps Man's Best Friend from running through the house covered in skunk oil or mud.
The majority of the dog showers we build are in home basements or garages and in some cases, laundry rooms and very large bathrooms. The shower can be built either even with the floor or elevated so you do not have to bend over to wash
your dog which causes stress to your body.
Glass doors are installed so that when your dog shakes, the soap, hair and dirt is kept inside the shower and not all over you, your shower curtain or walls.
Inside the showers we install shelves or racks to hold soaps and other grooming products. We also install a built-in tie-down. If you have a dog who gets overly excited taking a bath, they can be secured to the tie-down for their safety and yours. It also keeps those escape artists from running through the house shaking water and soap everywhere!
We also install river rock for the shower floors. This way your dog doesn't slip on tile which can be very slippery.
Lastly, the adjustable shower wand is ideal for not only washing and rinsing your pet from every angle, it also aids in the clean up process!
Clean dog! Clean dog shower!
