    Amazon.com: Booster Bath Plastic Dog Bath: Kitchen & Dining

    Does anybody here use this product? What do ya'll think of it? I tried to give my Aussie pup a bath and boy does that little stinker hate it. I had to chase him all around the house wet and he hated it when the hair dryer went on!

    I didn't have to bathe my ole Aussie girl (RIP) very often, but I probably should have bathed her more than I did, but she also put up a fuss about it.

    Aussies aren't much for water dog type things but I am wondering if it is worth my while to get this for one dog; I can see it being really good for folks with multiple pup households.

    I wouldn't be able to get Ollie in it !! He doesn't mind the walk- in shower with a hose hook up . I spread towels and quilt out on the living room floor and after some towel drying in shower , drape him in a huge towel and TRY to walk him to the living room .....usually the hall walls need a good wipe down !!!

    Come to think of it, a full grown 60 pound Aussie, protesting with all his might, just may flip the thing right over, water, suds and all!! What a mess that would be! :hail:

    That's the real beauty of the thing! Oh, it would save the back pain, if you have back issues already or even if you didn't......hauling yourself over the tub is wicked on the back!

    I just go to one of those "DIY baths" places...yeah it costs a bit but they've got everything I need, including a hi-powered blow dryer!! Those are a life saver with Aussie coats!

    Oh Sawyer hates the blower but has learned to tolerate it as long as I am very careful around his head.

    um... I always had Bailey done by a groomer... I only did Keeda myself, she has a short coat so it's not bad... and Midget's actually not bad either. His coat is kinda short too though.

    Keeda just hops in the shower with me... I rub her down with a towel afterwards.

    Midgets gets done in the kitchen sink... I rub him down with a towel too...
