If you have just bought a stainless steel dog washing sink, you’re probably thinking that maintenance is not going to be an issue. Since you invested your hard-earned dollars into this fairly durable piece of dog grooming equipment, you’re good to go for a lot of years in the future.
I can’t really blame you for thinking along those lines because a typical stainless steel dog washing sink model does require quite a few bucks. It’s natural to think that since you spent that kind of money on pet grooming equipment, then you should be assured that you would be able to wash your pet for a long time with no hassles.
The problem is, it’s too easy to focus on the durability of the product and turn a blind eye to all other issues. Make no mistake about it. While a stainless piece of pet grooming equipment can withstand the test of time, you might end up using it in a way that you don’t maximize your return on investment.
Sure, you bought a product that can take a lot of punishments. One that doesn’t break apart fairly quickly or rust. Congratulations on those key points. However, those are not the only decision points you should have in mind because you also need to be able to properly move around or handle the product. In other words, you should be able to carry it from one area of your home to another fairly comfortably.
Unfortunately, since we’re talking about a stainless steel piece of equipment, this is not guaranteed. Unless you do a lot of weight-lifting, or otherwise, you are in great physical shape, lugging around any kind of equipment made of stainless steel, can be a problem. I’m not saying that it would be a problem in your case, but it can be a problem, especially if you’re getting a bit older, or you are a very busy person, and you’d rather not lug around pieces of equipment that have some weight.
Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that this washing sink is so heavy that it’s going to be a headache for you. That is not what I mean. What I am saying is, you’re a very person. If you’re like the typical consumer, there’s just so many things competing for your attention. In many cases, if you have to carry around something that requires a little bit of effort to lug about, you might want to think twice about using it as frequently as you should. You need to remember that most pet owners think that washing their pet is a chore.
I know you may feel guilty thinking this way and considering the amount of love and devotion your pet shows you, but it’s perfectly natural to think this. It’s okay to acknowledge it. What I am getting at is that, you might want to think hard about maximizing your use of your stainless steel dog wash sink, because it can get quite burdensome after a while. I would suggest that you position it in an area that you have dedicated to washing your pet. I also suggest that you keep supplies and drying equipment ready and in close proximity to the washing area.
These are common sense; basic pieces of advice. You’d be surprised as to how much otherwise attentive and devoted pet owners completely overlook this. Not surprisingly, they end up turning the pet washing process into something more burdensome than it needs to be. Don’t find yourself in that situation.
