Best Dog Grooming Mats

By Lisa Hobbie Created: December, 2020 - Modified: January, 2024

Dog groomers may employ the use of a grooming mat for several reasons. Not only does a grooming mat provide a solid footing on which the groomer and dog can stand, but it also provides anti-fatigue benefits on an anti-slip surface. It also could protect the subfloor from damage caused by a dropped trimmer or clippers, as well as from the dog's nails. In dog wash areas, anti-slip mats help to provide traction for both the groomer and the dog.

Greatmats offers the best grooming mat selection around, with four mats being among the most popular ones used by dog groomers.

Flooring for Dog Grooming Salon

Dog Agility Mats

Interlocking Dog Agility Mats

Dog agility mats often double as grooming mats. These EVA foam mats provide a cushioned floor for groomers to be able to stand for long periods of time. They offer fatigue relief and a nonslip grip top. These mats are waterproof, and they will not absorb moisture. That, coupled with the nonslip grip top, allows dogs to easily stand and maintain balance even when the mats are wet.

They are light, portable, and easy to install without the use of adhesive. They are double-sided and reversible, lead-free, and latex-free. They are also extremely easy to clean with a walk-behind commercial cleaner that uses soft brushes. Or, they can simply be spot cleaned with a damp mop, hot water, and basic household soap. They can be vacuumed as well.

You can even install them atop a grooming table for the comfort and safety of the dog. These mats are best for a whole flooring system for dog grooming facilities, vet clinics, dog daycare centers, and dog training facilities.

Dog Grooming Tub Mats

Heronrib Matting

Heronrib Matting creates a safer option in wash tubs while providing both traction and cushioning. These mats are flexible and will contour to uneven surfaces. They feature antimicrobial and antifungal additives for enhanced hygiene. They also provide excellent drainage with open grid design. You can even cut these to fit inside the sink to provide traction for the dog.

Unlike heavy metal grates, Heronrib is a lightweight and slip-resistant solution. Heronrib Matting is an excellent choice for animal hydrotherapy pool ramps.

StayLock Perforated Tiles

StayLock Tile
Those shopping for a grooming mat may want to consider the StayLock Tile Perforated product. This fast-draining waterproof tile can easily be installed over any surface without adhesive. These tiles create a floor that floats over a subfloor. Each 12 x 12-inch tile has a soft raised base. The floating floor is non-slip and has a 20-inch fall rating, so it’s a great option to go under a grooming table.

It is made in the USA of durable plastic material that is waterproof and is designed to allow for excellent drainage, making it perfect for a grooming space. The tiles stay together and will not separate unintentionally.

If installed in a grooming tub to prevent slipping, they can easily be hosed down. When installed on the floor, the groomer will enjoy the benefits of a fatigue-relieving surface to stand on. The non-absorbent and fast-draining design has also made this a popular flooring solution for dog kennels.

Anti-Fatigue Grooming Mats

For dog groomers, vets, and technicians, anti-fatigue mats can prevent circulatory issues by standing on hard surfaces for long periods. Mats with slip-resistant properties reduce the risk of slipping by providing traction.

Heronair Matting

The Heronair Matting is an ideal choice around bathing tubs and veterinary exam tables. The mats provide traction underfoot and allows for liquids to drain through. Heronair mats are both lightweight and flexible. These mats can be rolled up for easy cleaning. Although this matting comes in a 33-foot-long roll, it can be cut to fit smaller areas.

WorkStep Mat

If you just need a small mat or two, consider the WorkStep Mat which is available in a 3x5 foot size as well as other sizes. This mat features perforations to allow water to drain through. It features an anti-fatigue and slip-resistant design. It also features beveled edges to reduce tripping hazards.
