i thought about doing this for a long time, but didn't actually get around to it until today..
get a lawn chemical sprayer bottle from walmart ($3.44), the kind that you attach to the hose, and put some shampoo in the bottle with a cup or so of water mixed in with it. voila!! hose your dog down and in a snap you have a clean dog. no scrubbing, no bending over, no soapy mess. i swear i was about to go crazy because bibi likes to make herself as dirty as possible and i have to give her a bath every other day. now with my spray n wash bottle, i can keep some sanity. try it, you might like it!
thank god eskies only need baths 3-4 times a year. but mine are really good. and little enough to fit in the laundry tub. they wait patiently for their turn, one time one even fell asleep during bath time :P
hmmm... that is an idea that i may try out on the horse! I have a tea tree oil shampoo that I use now and again and that sounds a lot easier then a bucket and soap. I will look into that- thanks for the suggestion :)
