We are looking for a galvanized tub to bath our dogs in. Our dogs range in wieght from 80 - 100 pounds. I would like to find a tub at least 36" long, no more than 12-18" high, and about 24" in width. Any thoughts.
You've got a couple of big honkin' dogs! Our first thoughts are that you should switch to either a smaller model, or try parakeets. They usually bathe in small bowls or in the sink. Best of all, they love it. They're known to clean themselves regularly.
If you're stuck on your dogs, you should try this
Though its dimensions aren't exactly what you're looking for, it might suffice. It even has handles and a drain!
Simple plastic kiddie pools are also frequent candidates. They're cheap, and readily available at most Kmart locations.

Come to think of it, one of our members boasts that his old bathtub is a great place to "warsh" his pet potbellied pig. The sides might be a bit high, but you can lob off the feet of the tub for easier access.
Let us know what you come up with.
Yours in service,
