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.

Thank you for this. I put a wooden tub outback for them to wash their dogs in, and my nutty Sims use it more than the dogs do! Expensive tubs in the house, they have to go outside to bathe. Strip in front of guests etc..all that screaming from seeing a naked Sim was making me nutty. lol

Hope this doesn't sound corny, but I LOVE the simplicity of this wooden tub. I find it aesthetically perfect. Thankyou!

At the moment no, sorry. I'm working on too many projects......

It's a very nice mesh: it's a sin that it maintains all the functions of the cloned tub.........perhaps the creators have not thought about doing it, or they are not able to mod it

I just got pets last week and never felt comfortable washing the dogs in an outside bath. Couldn't understand why they didn't have a hydrobath or something. So thanks for this!

Thank you. I've always placed a regular tub outside for my dogs if my bathroom arrangement made it impossible for the dog to get in but then my Sims would start taking baths outside :/

Oooooooo..... thank you, thank you, thank you!! I'm in the process of creating a Japanese home, complete with a traditional bath house attached to the main house by a wooden bridge. The tradition in Japanese culture is to shower before entering the bath, so I wanted to install just a shower for my Sim, then use the hot tub as the traditional bath. But of course my Sim couldn't bathe her pet dog in either the shower or the hot tub, and putting in a regular bathtub/ shower unit just looked really WRONG. This is exactly what I was looking for!!
