Photo by Matt McCorteneyThis stock tank, fitted with a round shower drain, is more subtly recessed in a custom cypress stand. A flip-down step allows dogs to hop in the wash basin for their baths. Cabinets hold their food and supplies. The tank’s galvanized metal repeats on the cabinet doors, which were mildly acid-washed for a nice patina. The concrete countertop and floor stand up to dogs’ toenails. Backsplash tile: Heath Ceramics; wall finish: Loma, American Clay; custom cabinetry: Josh Wynne Construction
Here’s a clever solution in a butler’s pantry in Sarasota, Florida. The dog tub is actually a horse feeding trough. (The owner is a polo player.) It’s about 42 inches wide and was modified to accommodate a drain. Similar galvanized stock tanks or watering troughs can be purchased from livestock supply stores.Food and supplies are kept in the base cabinet and a flip-down step allows the owner’s athletic Spanish water dogs to hop into the basin. The owner then stands on the step to wash them, says Josh Wynne, whose construction company built the LEED-certified home. The countertops are concrete and the walls are troweled clay with no added color. The upper cabinet doors are Galvalume, a carbon steel sheet coated with an aluminum-zinc alloy.Tile: Heath CeramicsMoreHow to Choose the Right Pet Door16 Stylish Built-In Sleeping Areas for Dogs
