This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Wooden Wash-Tub *ONLY* for Dogs


UPDATE 05 April 2007
Added the trashed recolor

I made the trashed recolour in order to coordinate this wash-tub with the Trashed Bath-Tub that I have made to complete the Trashed Set
The file is MaryLou_DogBathtub_Recolor-TRASHED.rar, attached to this post.


Dogs are different than sims: you just can't wash your dog into your expensive Jacuzzi, don't you agree? Of course.
But don't expect your dog to agree with you

In Game Usage
This Wooden Wash-tub is perfect to wash your dog!
  • It can be used to wash ONLY the dogs (small, big, adult and elder)

  • It will get dirty and you can clean it.

  • It will break and you should repair it.

  • If your sim is very playful he can play with it.

You'll find the wash-tub in Buy Mode catalog -> Misc -> Pets

The wash-tub, of course, requires the Pets EP; any other EP in addition to Pets is fine.
To install it, extract the package from the attached rar and put it in the Downloads folder (or use the Q-Xpress ).
To uninstall, just remove the package from the Download.

The wash-tub is recolourable in only one subset.
In order to create a new recolour use Object Workshop, click to "Open..." and search the file "MaryLou_DogBathtub.package".

I have created three basic recolours: Lightwood, BlackWood e Whitewood.

Recolor Trashed

The Wooden Wash-Tub can be included in lots posted ONLY on free sites (NOT EXCHANGE!!!) no paysite, as long as credits are given to MaryLou and a link to this page is provided.
If anyone is interested in creating recolours, they can be posted anywhere (even paysites) but NOT INCLUDING the mesh: on the contrary, a link to the mesh on this page must be provided.

I was thinking, maybe you could make something like this for toddlers too? I wanted to try that for myself, but I cannot make a decent mesh yet ^^.

Wonderful idea! I usually put showers for my sims and I find it strange that I need to put a bathtub outside just for the dogs. And then I have to watch for my sims not to wash themselves in the back yard! Thank you for sharing.

wwwwoooooowwwiiiieee that awesome.

Thank you
#13 Old 1st Apr 2007 at 3:55 PM
Awesome! I got irritated at how my Sims had to wash their dogs in the main tub in the house, when all the previews we saw showed those basins with sims washing their dogs outside...

I don't get why so many Simmers hate Marsha Bruenig. She actually grows up to be quite pretty if you allow her to.
#14 Old 1st Apr 2007 at 4:07 PM
This is a really neat item, MaryLou - like crocobaura, I tend to buy showers for my Sims and it does seem strange that only standard baths were previously acceptable for dogs. The dogs at my real-life house get washed with a garden hose, but I'm sure my Sim-life dogs will appreciate your handiwork (plus it'll make a lot less mess on the floor than a hose!)

Thank you so much-- this is perfect for my crazy loner sim that lives in the woods. He has an old rottweiler that needs to be washed all the time, but I wanted him to use his outdoor shower. Thanks!

Yay, I love this, the textures are nice and real, and I also love wood. Thanks so much.

Thank you so much, I also found it wrong that sims would use the regular bath for their dogs - one of the golden rules when owning pets is, never use the same cleaning items for your pets; like washing up the dishes, you need a separate brush for the food bowls, so why wash your pet in the same appliance? Silly Maxis...

Please don't PM/IM me with requests

It's so nice when creators take the time to do something all the way! :D
There's a great pet bathtub mesh at Meshkiste, but that has not been disabled for sims, and it's really disturbing when your sims autonomously go to the garage to take a bath.
