There are different types of dog grooming tables for different needs. The one at the top of the scale, in terms of features and price, is the electric dog grooming table. These devices may look like the perfect solution to grooming issues to those that struggle with smaller, flimsier tables. Still, there will also be many that wonder whether the price tag is just a little too high. Are these top of the line tables worth the high price tag – especially for the average dog
There are some clear benefits to this type of table
There is definitely plenty of appeal to these electric tables. They have the ease of use that dog owners desire from their products. The main difference here is that the table moves up and down in position with the flick of a switch, not the repeated actions of a foot pedal. This will save plenty of energy for those that struggle with the hydraulic method. An electric model also ensures a smooth ride from the bottom to the highest level. It should also be easier to get the table into just the right position for the dog in question. This ease of use and simple motion means that users can send it up and down to their hearts content provided it is plugged in. this is ideal for those that operate on a professional level, with lots of dogs to handle in one afternoon.
However, there are clear downsides to this option that mean that there really is a small target market for this type of table.
The first issue is this idea that it has to be plugged into the mains to work. This is a problem for those short on space as there may not be a perfect spot at home close enough to the outlet. Then there is the fact that these tables are pretty big, especially compared to some of the smaller, portable options that dog owners may be familiar with.
The next issue is the effect on the animals. There are the benefits of the smooth ride and ease of use to help dogs reach the right height. However, this is a more of a dominant, mechanical structure and some dogs may be wary of it. The noise produced by the mechanics may spook some as well. Finally, there is that important issue of cost. There is no getting away from the fact that these tables are the most expensive choice for any dog groomer.
This is a great choice for the professional groomer, but casual users may not see the full worth
The electric dog grooming table is a major investment where the cost is really only justifiable when there are lots of dogs to groom, and profits to make. A dog owner at home may save money on groomers costs, eventually. Yet, they are still stuck with an over-sized machine that seems like over-kill compared to the hydraulic options, that are just as adaptive and sturdy. This is perfect in a professional groomers, with the space and money to spend, but not at home.
