Shower head hose recommendations??

Does anyone have a shower head hose that they recommend for washing dogs in the tub? Any to stay away from? I've been looking on amazon and they look to be around $20 so maybe there are cheaper ones out there I don't know about. Thanks

I changed my shower head over to one with a hose precisely to help wash the dogs.

Think if you stay with the more known and reliable brands you'll be good to go. And the longer the better for hose length so you can easily reach the dog and not have to keep moving the miserable pup to get it closer to the hose head.

Think a more compact head may work better to rinse...

i don't know how much our shower head cost but it
has several settings. make sure the hose is long so you
can rinse underneath your dog. teach your dog to shake
his body on command. when my dog is bathed in the tub
i place a large wet towel on the floor of the tub. when i ask
him to get in i support his rear end whe he's step/jumping in.
the bathroom floor is lined with towels. when it's time to get of the
tub i pull the shower curtain closed and tell him to "shake".
in the winter i towel him off in the bathroom. when it's summer
i give him a quick toweling and then let him outside. i also bathe
him with the hose outside in the summer. no towel dry must
of the time in the summer. i put him in the yard to air dry or
take him for a walk.
