Top 6 Best Dog Grooming Tables
Visiting professional groomers can be a luxury. Although we love spoiling our canine friends and they do deserve certain indulgences, regular visits to professional grooming studios can be quite expensive. By grooming your dog at home you can increase the period between two professional grooming treatments. Or if you get the hang of it, you can even skip going to salons and do everything at home.
Remember that dogs of all breeds need regular grooming. The only difference between different breeds is the time that needs to spent on grooming – from a few weeks to few months.
The first rule when grooming your dog at home is accepting the fact that you need appropriate tools – dog grooming clippers, pet grooming shears, flea combs, and shampoos. Last but not least, think about getting a dog grooming table. In this article, we review the best dog grooming tables, so you have a choice to go through a few and see which one fits you. Placing your dog on a table makes it easier to restrain it, and it is also easy on your back.
For the professional groomers, you want to work with commercial quality equipment that can stand the use of the table being used 8-10 times per day. You’ll want access to things such as height adjustments so that you can work comfortably. After grooming many dogs per day, your back will thank you. Maybe your mobile groomer portability can be important that you take the grooming table with you from client to client. All these things matter, and we’ll go through them below.
Types of Dog Grooming Tables
Before choosing a dog grooming table, you need to familiarize yourself with the different types. Basically, there are three main types of dog grooming tables:
- Portable (folding) tables – as the name suggests, their legs can be folded, thus making the tables easily portable. Portable tables come in a variety of heights and tabletop sizes.
- Hydraulic tables – can be easily adapted depending on the dog’s and groomer’s heights. They also come in a variety of table top sizes.
- Electric tables – their concept is the same as in hydraulic tables, with the difference that instead of air hydraulics, electric tables use electricity for height adjustment. Electric tables are the most expensive choice.
What to look for in a dog grooming table
When choosing a dog grooming table, you need to consider several factors:
- Size – the tabletop size needs to accommodate your dog
- Durability – the quality of the materials determines how long you will be able to use the table
- Additional features – arms, loop attachments, nonslip covering
- Budget – how much are you willing to invest.
Benefits of using a dog grooming table
Investing in a professional grooming table, although a big investment at first, turns out to be money well spent. There are many benefits to using a dog grooming table. These benefits include:
- Practicality – it usually takes 1-2 grooming sessions for dog owners to realize that using benches, card tables, and other grooming table substitutes does not work. They are not only tiring but can also make you sore. Additionally, the best dog grooming tables are time-saving tools because they keep your dog in one place during the entire session.
- Security – when placed on an appropriate table, your dog will feel safer and more relaxed. Most grooming tables feature arms and loop attachments to keep the dog from walking off or jumping. The nonslip matting adds to the security.
- Comfort – it takes approximately an hour for a professional groomer to do their job. At-home groomers definitely need more time. Professional grooming tables offer a higher level of comfort for both you and your dog during prolonged grooming sessions.
- Cleanliness – no matter how careful you are, grooming is messy. Using a grooming table makes it easier to clean up the mess after you are finished.

All in all, it can be concluded that one of the most critical items for groomers (professional and at-home enthusiasts) is their grooming table. The word critical implies that the grooming table is a necessity rather than an option. Therefore, do not cut corners when it comes to dog grooming tables. Do a little online research and familiarize yourself with the types of dog grooming tables. Explore what feature each table offers and consider which of those features are important to you. Consider your dog’s size, the amount of grooming the table would be used for, and whether you need to move the table around or it will be stationed at one place. After you have done your homework, you will be prepared to make a fact-based decision. If still unclear about which table to choose, do not hesitate to talk to the salesperson at the pet salon. It is also recommended to schedule an appointment with a professional dog groomer and have him explain to you which dog grooming table will serve your purposes best.
Keep in mind that there is no universally good or bad grooming table. It all comes down to what you want and need.
