I agree with Graco... We use human tubs at my shop. They are set up high and built kind of into the wall. There are 3 walls around them set high for back splash. That way you only have one way to get at the dog and if the dog does decide to bail it has to try to go passed you. :)

Plus it's easier to turn the dog around (if needed). I usually just reach over the dog unless they plant themselves against the wall or it's a Irish Wolfhound.. he he.. But turning can be a good thing. Because a dog should always be secured in the tub with a grooming loop. Depending on where it is and where the faucet is, sometimes it can be hard to get into that area to wash.

At the shop I work at the faucet comes out pretty far because there's a pressure cap on it. Well the dogs tend to back up into it and when I try to wash I usually end up smacking my arms against or when I lean over, my head. So for this reason I do turn the dog so that I can wash that end without injuring myself. :)
