Regardless of whether you are a conscientious pet owner who chooses to groom your own pet or a professional dog groomer, having the right tools and dog grooming equipment is essential.
There are many different dog grooming tables on the market and in order to choose the right grooming table for you and your pet (or the pets you will be grooming if you are a professional) it is important to know the different types of grooming tables available and the advantages of each.
There are a number of factors you should take into consideration in your search for the right table. These include safety issues, convenience factors and cleanliness considerations.
You can read about each of these concerns in more detail here: Choosing the Right Dog Table.
Dog Grooming Table Categories
- Manual Grooming Tables:
This type of dog grooming table is foldable[ for easy storage. You can easily change the table height through adjustments on the legs. This is one of the least expensive tables and may be an excellent choice for at -home use, or in cases where the table needs to be moved frequently or if cost is a concern.
- Electric Grooming Tables:
In this case, just by pushing a button, you can adjust the table to your preferred height. Whilst they tend to be more expensive than manual tables, electric grooming tables are incredibly convenient and easy to operate.
- Hydraulic Grooming Tables:
The height of this type of table is adjusted via a foot pump. As you would expect, hydraulic grooming tables can prove to be more expensive, depending on the type you choose.
