If you’re looking to buy a dog wash tub for home purposes instead of mobile cleaning, you might want to look past all the small details. I know it’s very easy to get caught up in the overall design and different attributes like color and size. These are all important, but it’s too easy to miss the forest from the trees. It’s too easy to get so caught up in all the small details that you end up turning a blind eye to the most important factor.
The most important factor when it comes to a dog tub, whether for portable purposes or for home use, is your pet’s comfort. Make no mistake about it, a dog wash tub for home purposes is not going to be up to the job if your dog is uncomfortable. If your dog is feeling any kind of stress while trying to use the wash tub, believe me, you will be the first person to know. In fact, trying to give your pet a bath would be like pulling teeth. I’m sure you don’t need me to remind you of some bad experiences you had trying to wash an uncooperative pet. It’s hard on you and it definitely can be quite hard on your pet.
This is why it’s really important to look at wash tubs primarily from your pet’s point of view. After all, they’re the ones who are going to be standing in that water. They’re the ones who are going to be partially shivering or feeling cold while you give them a bath. I’m not saying that you should instantly turn into Dr. Dolittle and converse with your dog. Modern science has yet to discover dog languages and establish human to dog translations. What I’m getting at is you need to pay attention to your pet’s behavioral patterns.
If you had your pet for more than a few months, you know that there’s a certain pattern to your pet. Your pet has certain preferences. In most cases, a lot of these behaviors are simply a matter of timing. For example, one of my friends always had a hard time washing her large breed dog. It seems that regardless of what she did and what tub she used and soap that she had on hand, her pet was just very uncooperative. In fact, in many cases, the dog would howl. It was that bad.
It turned out that she was always giving him a bath at night. The moment she switched to noon time, her dog was just so easy to handle. The dog was just so docile. I was just flabbergasted. I was wondering to myself, is this even the same dog? Yes, you can get such black and white differences just by simply changing small details when you wash your dog. Try changing the time. Try changing soap or other pieces of equipment. Don’t automatically assume that it’s the dog wash tub all by itself.
While it’s really important to make sure that your dog is comfortable in the dog wash tub, pay attention to other factors like timing, temperature or light level. There’s just so many different details that you may have missed. There’s just so many different factors that you may have turned a blind eye to. These factors may turn out to have a larger role in why your dog behaves a certain way when you try to wash it. Don’t automatically assume that it is the dog wash tub for home purposes that you bought. Maybe it’s something else.
