If you've ever had to deal with a dirty dog running around your freshly cleaned home, you'll love this latest trend. Dog shower and baths are one of the hottest trends happening in home renovation. It’s no secret that many people think of their dogs as family members and they aren’t afraid to spend serious money on them. So, for dog owners who have the budget to afford one, a shower station or dog bath might be a practical addition to their home. Say goodbye to the hassle of paying for professional dog grooming care, now you can do it all in the comfort of your own home.
Why have a pet spa in your home? For one, we know dogs can be bathed in a regular human tub, but there are several benefits to having a dedicated dog shower. Most dogs are not a fan of baths to begin with and may squirm or try to wiggle away, creating a big mess. Worse, a dog may even try to jump out of the tub, which isn’t safe and could lead to injury. The dog shower creates an area for your dog to sit or stand, an accessible shower head, and stairs for easy access by your furry loved one. Whether your dog is large or small, they can go up and down the steps and sit in the station so you don’t have to arch your back to reach them.
There are differences in the types of pet bathtub options available. Some home owners may prefer a whole dog wash tub, while others may find more value out of a dog shower attachment that can work with an already-existing shower. It can be difficult to have to lean down to scrub and wash a larger dog, whether he’s sitting outside or in the regular shower inside. Dog wash tubs offer a lot of practicality that some pet owners just can’t afford to do without. A variety of pet bathtub options can be installed indoors, outdoors, in the bathroom, in the kitchen, and more.
If you need to soak your dog, or you want a clean space for the water to drain without spilling everywhere, a dog wash tub might be your best bet. A dog wash tub often resembles a typical bathroom tub, but it is usually situated up on high legs. This is so that you don’t have to reach down to scrub your pet; instead, you can lift them into the tub where they will comfortably sit at chest-level while you give your pet a bath. One company that has designed a pet spa is MTI. MTI’s Pet Spas are designed to pamper your four-legged family members. Individually manufactured and handcrafted, these pet spas provide a hydrotherapy experience personalized for your pet’s specific needs. The tub is made from a durable cross-linked cast acrylic shell and is extremely scratch- and stain-resistant. The non-porous surface makes cleaning / sanitizing faster & more effective. There are molded-in shelves for shampoos and supplies and an integral removable acrylic skirt. This pet spa has everything a dog owner could want when cleaning their pup.
A dog shower is exactly what it sounds like—it’s a separate, built-in shower that’s exclusively for bathing or showering your dog. They are slightly raised, to make washing and rinsing a dog of almost any size comfortable for the owner, and include faucets (or shower heads), towel rods, and more. Many pet owners choose to install their showers in a mudroom, laundry room, or even outside; that way, it’s easy to keep your dog clean—and keep them from tracking dirt into the rest of the house.
Dog showers, dog washing stations, and pet tubs can be great investments that add a lot of value to your renovation project. Investing in a built-in washing option that specializes in washing your furry friend can save you the time, trouble, and money. Your pet is an extension of your family, and it will feel nice to treat them the way they deserve. Plus, with dog showers being an exciting new trend in the home renovations industry, you’re bound to get a great return on the investment!
