I really hope our two don't see this! At the moment they have to make do with the squirty gun on the hosepipe, unless it's really cold and then they get sponged over with a bucket of warm water!

Superduper shampoosoaker for Roker, a temperature set shower outside was the first request to our plummer when we moved in 2015. An absolute God send for white doods and my back, no more filling the baby bath with gallons of warm water and carrying it to the garden. So a quick foot, leg, belly and moustache shower after a muddy walk
(And that's just for me☺️)

It's certainly a change from the hosepipe off the outside tap. He wasn't sure what to make of it earlier on its first use but think the warm water won him over. Just need to figure a plan out for when he shakes after covering the freshly painted walls!!

Looks great Jonb.
We are currently planning our extension & a food shower in the utility was added to the plans for the same reasons as everyone else experiences. I'd be really keen for any tips / advice regarding things you wish you'd considered. ( seems a shower curtain may be one? :lol: )

The only problem i'm seeing so far is the post shower shake down but not sure a shower curtain will be much use to stop it. It will be better once the utility room is fitted out with some worktops around the washer and dryer and covers a chunk of the wall. I suspect we'll not be as fussed once its less new as well. :wink: I actually managed to towel him down pretty well before he shook but he's a pain to get properly dry with just a towel so we may have to invest in a dryer nearby to finish him off as much as he hates them!!

In terms of the actual shower, tiled area, drain hole etc it all works very well and you definitely need it set up in a way the shower head can be held whilst the water runs so you have both hands free to do the shampoo or alike. Ours is nothing special just a normal shower unit fitted lower down. If you google "Dog Shower" you see some very fangled set ups but not sure they are needed.

Dont tell stout for goodness sake! We have a stupid corner bath where the ends are too small to fit human shoulders in, and it is really deep so takes ages to fill, and the water gets cold really quickly, but it has a seat in the corner bit, so stout is the only one in our house who can have a bath, with me sitting on the seat and chris the other side, one showers him with a shower on the taps, while one shampoos. The hoomans have a separate shower. We are thinking of changing the bathroom so we can actually have baths, so stout might loose his personal bath!
