Best Dog Grooming Tubs For Professionals in 2020

Written by Mark Braeden

We treat our dogs as part of our family and because of this, we tend to give the best of pet care we can provide. When it comes to dog hygiene, some of us take our dogs outside and bathe them using shampoo, soap and lots of water. Instead of having our garage or garden become messy, how about having to save our water bill (and maybe electricity bill too) and not needing to clean the mess after our dogs’ fun and playful bath? Because of these questions on my mind, I decided to make a compilation of best dog grooming tubs that I feel are making sense to purchase because of the reviews that I read.

I hope I can buy one in the next 2 weeks from the day of writing this review. I can build a pet business if ever my neighbours decide to let me bathe their dogs because of their busy working schedules.

What Are The Best Dog Grooming Baths?

I interviewed many professional dog groomers and short listed 5 best grooming dog tubs.

I have researched over 100 different options on the market. Moreover, some groomers allowed me to use their dog baths and I asked their opinion on it. You might avoid so many products, but make sure to check these 5 dog tubs for grooming:

  1. Flying Pig Grooming 50″ Stainless Steel Tub for professional dog grooming
  2. Booster Bath Elevated Dog Grooming Tub
  3. Booster Bath Grooming X-Large
  4. Pet Any Way LLC Master Equipment Everyday Pro Tub
  5. Flying Pig Dog Grooming Portable Bath Tub

These five received the best feedback from most of the professional dog groomers I talked to.

Flying Pig Grooming 50″ Stainless Steel Tub

Flying Pig Grooming 50" professional stainless steel dog grooming bath tub with faucet, walk-in ramp & other accessories is definitely the best options on the market for dog groomers.

  • Removable floor gate
  • Made of 16-gauge stainless steel
  • Can release hot or cold water
  • Features watertight seals

Pros:

The basket in Flying Pig grooming tub can hold 2 large bottles of your favourite shampoo and located near shower.

  • Have 2 types of drains so you won’t have to think of adjusting your surroundings if ever you want to move the stainless steel dog grooming bath tub. Those 2 drains are Left door/ right drain or Right door/ left drain

  • There is a restraining leash to keep your dog in the steel tub.
  • Tray/basket can hold 2 large bottles or fit 4 small bottles.

Flying Pig Grooming bathtub can hold a large dog of 180-220 pounds, or 2 smaller dogs There’s a ramp for your dog to walk. Enough space for your pet and the bathing accessories. With the removable dog gate, there’s no need to carry and hold him/her. With watertight seals, splashing and mess are minimal. I also tried it before, so feel free to check my ultimate review for Flying Pig grooming dog wash station.

In my case, I buy big bottles of shampoo and conditioner because these are cheaper than buying several small ones. I listed this dog tub as a would-be replacement for my old ceramic bathtub. Stainless steel doesn’t break and don’t rust. I don’t bathe my dog under the sun, and I will make sure it’s on the shade. I would recommend buying Flying Pig Grooming bathtub.

I like that I don’t have to kneel just to give a bath to my pet. I can place the dog bathtub on our lawn on a sunny day in case I want to multi-task when watering the plants or washing our car. For the caddy, maybe I will buy a larger suction bathroom shower caddy. It’s also more affordable compare to others, check the current price here.
