I wanted to spice things up a little bit and give you something you probably did not expect. The internet is filled with all sorts of consumer guides claiming to direct you to the best product. In fact, these guides claim to offer the very best advice.
I’ve always had a problem with the concept of “the best” especially when used on the internet. As you probably already know, the internet isn’t exactly known for humble and understated things. In many cases it always claims to have the latest, cutting edge, most revolutionary and greatest stuff. It makes all these claims and, unfortunately, for the most part, it falls flat on its face. This is due to the fact that most of the advice that supposedly direct you to “the best” product isn’t all that good. Why? There is no such thing as the best.
I know your jaw is probably on the ground. I know you’re probably shocked, but get over it. Think of it this way, when was somebody’s recommendation of “the best product” ever worked out for you? In most cases, it may have worked out to a certain extent, but you probably would not have written home about the product. You probably would not go so far as to say that it is the very best option for you. From your perspective, you probably are well aware of other better options.
This happens all the time and this is due to the fact that there is no such thing as “the best.” It’s all subjective. What may be best for you may be a horrible choice for somebody else and vise versa. Do you see how this works? This is why I’ve decided to write an article that shifts away from the best and focuses more on the worst. While we may not be able to see eye to eye on what constitutes the best, we can definitely agree on what is the worst.
So, what is the world’s worst dog wash tub buying advice? There are many considerations and there are many contenders for the worst advice. But in my opinion, based on my experience talking to a lot of pet owners buying dog wash tub equipment, the very worst piece of advice would be to buy based on price. Never ever buy anything based on price.
I know it’s kind of a strong statement, after all, we’ve been told by our parents since we were little kids to try not to use the word never. Never is an extreme word. But I think in this particular situation, it is appropriate. Never buy on price. The problem with buying on price is that you tend you buy stuff that is cheap. There’s a reason why a product is cheap.
When you buy a dog wash tub that doesn’t cost that much, chances are, it’s not going to be durable or it may not be up to the job. Neither of these situations is good. Do you see where I’m coming from? You may have saved a few dollars here and there, but believe me, whatever you save now, you will probably shell out in the future.
Worst of all, you may have to shell out in the worst possible situation due to worst possible contingencies. I am, of course, talking about potential health and safety risks to your pet. There’s just so many things that can pop up and go wrong. Unfortunately, if our main focus on buying products is to simply save a few dollars, the only person we’re fooling is ourselves. The money that we saved will turn out to be an illusion sooner or later.
