I got a "Martha Stewart" doggie bath at Pet Smart when Tillie was just a baby as I also have a bad back (botched surgery from 8 yrs ago) and this bath is AWESOME. I just set it on the bathroom counter, hook up my sprayer, drain it as needed over the sink... love it! only complaint... it is blue instead of pink because it was the last one on clearance for $15!! LOL
How wonderful! Boo fights to get OUT of the tub, constantly through his whole bath. It is quite the battle!
Finn does too, and he is incredibly strong. Augie struggled when he was young too, however. And now, although I don't think he loves it, he doesn't struggle at least. So I have hope that Finn will someday resign himself to the fact that baths are a fact of life too. I put a free standing laundry tub in my main level bathtub that never gets used. It works really well. May not look too pretty, but I am past the stage of trying to impress anyone!!
