Utility Sink for Washing Small Dogs
I need suggestions for a utility sink to put in the "dog room" ... uh, I mean mud room. They are 10-12 lb terriers and just over 24" stem to stern. I need deeper than an ordinary kitchen sink, but the usual laundry sink means that I will need to put something in the bottom for them to stand on so I can reach them. Also, it serves as a place to clean off muddy paws when they just have too much doggie fun in the dirt.
I looked on the laundry forum for ideas & in one thread someone suggested getting a stainless steel commercial sink on legs like they use in restaurants. When I add up the costs of a regular acrylic laundry sink + sink base cabinet + countertop & backsplash, the price isn't out of line for a SS freestanding sink. An added benefit is that the sides don't slope like a typical laundry sink and the SS should be more resistant to dog nails than acrylic.
Anyway, I'm not sure if it is a cool idea or if a commercial SS sink would look too weird. The dog room is just off the kitchen and connects via a pocket door which will usually be partially open so they can go to their water bowl or out the doggie door to their own patch of grass.
