Keeping a pet healthy requires a lot more than just dog food and walking her. Grooming and having the right dog grooming products are an important part of the pet-parent relationship, and also an important component of canine health. Lack of grooming with a dog brush or dog clippers can lead to some serious health problems. A dog with an untamed mane can attract pests, infestations and infections. Hair grooming is a great time to check your dog’s skin for conditions like hot spots and critter bites. In addition to trimming your dog’s hair, trimming your dog’s nails with dog nail clippers is also important. Overgrown nails don’t just scuff up your wood floors—they can actually hurt to walk on and cause changes in your canine’s walk. Grooming your dog at home is a lot easier with a dog grooming table. At Chewy, we carry a variety of dog grooming tables, baths and grooming restraints to help make grooming easier and more comfortable for you and your furry friend.

A dog tub like the Booster Bath elevated dog tub eliminates many of the challenges associated with bathing a pup at home. Designed with pets in mind, this convenient grooming center has a non-slip bottom, and the U-shaped opening makes it convenient to enter and exit. It also features a 3-point safety harness to keep your pet secured in place while you groom them.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dog Grooming Tables
Will a grooming table keep my dog still?
A grooming table will help keep your dog still, but you will need to use appropriate restraints, gentle encouragement and rewards, and possibly calming aids if you have a wiggly or nervous dog. Choosing a dog grooming table with a non-slip surface and a sturdy, adjustable grooming arm will go a long way in holding your dog steady, but you will still need to have patience and go slowly, especially if your dog isn't used to being groomed. Leash loops help keep most dogs in place, but a grooming harness or overhead restraint may be necessary for greater control.
What size should a dog grooming table be?
A dog grooming table should be big enough that your dog can stand and recline comfortably, but not so big that he has lots of room to move around. 36 x 24 inches is considered a standard size that fits most dogs, but larger breed dogs may need a table that is up to 48 inches long. Smaller breeds may do best with a more compact grooming table. You can find many good small dog grooming tables, including models that rotate for greater control and ease.
How do you use a dog grooming table?
Use a dog grooming table according to the product instructions, taking care to properly adjust the arm and table height and secure your pet safely. You should start by adjusting the table to a comfortable height, either before you put your small to medium-sized dog on there or after you get him to jump onto the lowered platform, if he is a big dog. Use the grooming arm and leash loop or harness restraint to comfortably restrain your dog. Once you have secured your dog properly, you will be ready to begin grooming.
What are the best dog grooming tables?
The best dog grooming tables are those that let you safely secure your dog for a grooming session. Sturdy dog grooming tables made of durable, easy-to-clean stainless steel are considered to be among the best, but other materials can work well, too. Look for a dog grooming table with a non-slip surface and adjustable, pet-safe restraints. Be sure to choose a grooming table that is the right size and strength for your dog's breed and weight.
