Usually, a lot of people think that they only need to buy a stainless steel product and a lot of their durability problems go away. While it is true that a stainless steel dog wash can withstand the test of time, durability is not the only consideration. You should also consider size as well as ease of cleaning and design components. Now, it’s too easy to look at buying this type of product from a purely utilitarian perspective. However, I would suggest that you don’t look at things that way because, eventually, your attitude will catch up with you.
What do I mean by this? Well, if your stainless steel dog wash is hard to clean, chances are, you won’t bother to clean it after a while. This can lead to all sorts of hygiene issues. Also, it can lead to a downward spiral. You look at your equipment before you wash your dog and you decide to call off washing your dog. Why? You don’t want to clean up after washing your dog. Days turn into weeks and then weeks can easily turn into months. I’m sure you don’t need me to remind you of this.
Unfortunately, this is exactly the kind of sad situation you’ll find yourself in if you don’t pay close attention to the design of the dog wash you’re thinking of buying. Design counts for a lot. Just because different products have different designs but are intended for the same use, it doesn’t automatically mean that they’re all the same. There is a big reason why products have the certain shape or the design they have. Those details are not without consequence. They mean something. They either mean that you would spend less time cleaning that particular item, or they can mean that you would have to put in a lot more effort in cleaning up after your pet.
Water management is also a big factor in looking for a right dog wash product. You might think that just because the product has enclosed sides that your water management issues have gone away. Absolutely wrong. You have to imagine how your pet would actually behave in working with that equipment. You might be in for a shock. If your pet is particularly active and likes to run around, water might end up all over the place.
You have to look beyond what the manufacture’s description is. A lot of manufacturers like to paint a rosy and beautiful picture of how your pet would interact with their product. I really can’t say I blame them. After all, their job is to move as many products as possible. Your job, on the other hand, is to maximize the amount of value for every dollar you’re going to spend on a product.
Do your job well by simply paying attention to differences in design and noticing what their implications may mean as far as the actual product usage, your pet’s comfort, and also your clean up labor. By factoring all these considerations, you increase the likelihood that you would be making a truly informed decision.
Let’s face it, it’s just too easy to end up with the wrong product. It’s too easy to buy something that you thought would work in your situation only to come back to the store and ask for a refund. Don’t go through that unnecessary headache. Pay attention to the specific considerations of your pet and use these as the primary guidance you’ll use to pick the right product. The right product is out there. It’s only a question of whether you use the right factors to identify that product.
