The Mud Daddy is a perfect accompaniment for those with mud loving dogs like spaniels and terriers. They are suitable for a variety of uses, including to wash dogs off after a walk before they get in the car or go into the house. These are totally portable; you simply fill them with hot water before setting out to wash the dogs after your walk. We like the compact size and styling of this particular portable washer that holds enough water to clean two to three dogs and your boots too. If you have a single dog, then check out the smaller versions too; the 5 litre one is here:
- PORTABLE WASHING DEVICE - A totally mobile, and compact dog washing device that can be taken anywhere. The excellent 5L storage makes this cleaning kit perfect for pretty much all occasions.
