We use a lot of those Sham Wow type towels to start with, then a terry cloth hand towel goes over the head, and around the neck to be used as a hold under the dryer. The pictures of the dog room were taken before it was entirely finished. There are large, front load washer, and dryer to the right side of the dog sink now. 5 gallon containers of shampoo, and conditioner sit on top of the washer next to the sink. With the washer right beside the sink, towels go in there until we're through washing 5 or 6 dogs in a row usually.
Yes, more than one most days. Every night, last thing after the dogs are in bed, the dog room, and puppy room floors are mopped with large towels, and those always go in a load started just before we get ready to go to bed ourselves. There is always something else to go in with the floor towels. I found that large bath towels make the best floor mops. I load a towel in the mop handle, lay it out on the floor to be sprayed with the hand sprayer on the dog sink, then several squirts with Clorox Cleanup. It takes at least three towels.
That hand sprayer was designed for blasting food off of dirty plates, and pots in restaurants. I drilled out the little holes with some number drill bit so it produces a little more volume, but at much less pressure on the dogs.
