Keeping pets pampered is a joy for countless owners across the UK. After all, their unconditional love makes them deserved of an enjoyable and comfortable life. This desire for our pets to be happy is reflected today in a number of pet-related 2016 home trends, ‘dog showers’ and ‘dog wetrooms’ being one of them.
Luxury Bathing for Dogs – Showers & Wetrooms
If you own a dog, you’ll understand the difficulty of keeping them clean, particularly in the winter months. With incessant lashing rain, muddy puddles and the infamous heaps of animal muck that dogs just love to roll in; it’s a constant battle of suds vs mud.
Trying to transfer your mucky pup into a tall bathtub is difficult at the best of times, but this issue is exaggerated when your beloved pooch is slippery, slimy and on the larger side. Hosing them down isn’t an ideal option either, with freezing cold jets of water in the chilly temperatures.
So, it’s no wonder more and more owners are leaning towards the idea of incorporating an accessible bathing solution for their pet. A simple search online will highlight many large and invasive dog shower options that are something of an eyesore and raised from the ground.
However, the most efficient way to keep your dog clean whilst maintaining a sense of luxury and serenity in your home is by incorporating a wetroom for dogs.
Benefits of a Wetroom for Dogs
Unlike dog showers, a wetroom is completely level, with no trip hazards and most importantly, is waterproof; it removes the need for raised basins or platforms. With clean lines and barely there drainage systems, they make for the ultimate luxury edition to your home, meaning you can keep the sense of luxury you want and your pooch can keep clean and content. You can take a look at some of our luxury wetroom designs in our gallery.
