|havery||If you get a handheld shower head, look for one that has different sprays. Mine has a nice easy spray for getting her wet initially that she doesn't mind at all, and a harder, single jet of water that makes getting all the shampoo out much easier (even though she's NOT a fan of it, it's much faster).|

|alexg||My preference to wash the GSD size dog would be outdoors, because even a well behaved dog will make a huge wet mess and the bathtub that low will leave you bending down for a quite some time. For indoors I'd look up the facility nearby that allow you to wash your dog yourself. You bring your shampoo and the dog and leave the mess behind...|

|PhoenixGuardian||Thanks everyone for all the suggestions! Definitely the ideal thing would be a removable shower head that can be used like a sprayer, I'll see if I can find one somewhere. Any other suggestions are welcome too!|

I'd dampen them with a sponge or wash cloth, then soap them - I made it a game. It was kinda hard on the bathroom (takes a lot of towels!) but they both loved baths. They also got high quality treats when in the tub & I bought outdoor rubber matts for the floor of the tub to make it less slippery. I think he'll like the shower if it is rewarding and fun.|

Ours is a tub enclosure with shower doors which is tight as well. Our shower has a Tee with a button and I can choose the shower head or the hand held. Works out quite well. I wish the hose was longer but it gets the job done.
We also have a small screen to catch the hair so it doesn't go down the drain and clog it.
I also find the massage function on the hand held penetrates the undercoat better and they seem to enjoy it. Just stay away from the nether regions with the massage functions.
I would venture a guess that you could purchase a Tee and cheapo hand sprayer for about the price of a tank of gas.
I usually don't wash them outside unless its the dead of summer. The water temperature is cold and I want the bath to be a good thing, not traumatic.
