Designate a Place for Grooming Your Pet at Home

The first thing I recommend is that you designate a place, such as a grooming table or other sturdy non skid surface, for grooming your pet at home.

It is just the right height for working on comfortably, has a non skid surface, and comes with a grooming arm and noose so that you can use both hands at the same time.
