The Best Grooming Dog Mats: Anti-Fatigue Foam, Plastic, Pebble & Tile
Related Product: StayLock Tile Perforated Black
Dog groomers may employ the use of a grooming mat for a number of 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 provide protection to the subfloor from damage caused by a dropped trimmer or clippers, as well as nails of a poodle, shih tzu, or other dog breeds often groomed by a professional. It could also provide ease of clean up of fur, long hair, and other dog and cat grooming debris.
Greatmats offers the best grooming mat selection around, with four mats being among the most popular ones used by dog groomers.
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.
Economy Foam Mats
Another excellent foam grooming mat option is the Economy Foam Mat. This product also provides a safe and cushioned surface to go over any hard surface.
Like the thicker foam agility mats, it is waterproof and stain-resistant - two qualities necessary for a dog grooming space. They feature tight-fitting, interlocking tabs for an easy DIY installation and to prevent shifting of the mats. Economy Foam Mats are lead-free and latex-free and conveniently sized in 2x2 squares.
They are available in 3 different color options. These mats provide lots of features at an affordable price. They are shock absorbing and deliver fatigue relief for the dog and trainer. They each weigh just 1.2 pounds, so they are easy to lift and transport.
The main difference between these mats and the agility mats are that they are smaller in size, thinner, and have a scuff-resistant surface texture on one side.
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 and is waterproof, oil-resistant, acid-resistant, and is designed to allow for excellent drainage, making it perfect for a grooming space. The tiles stay together and will not separate unintentionally. This product is super easy to clean with vinegar or baking soda and hot water.
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 fatigue relieving surface to stand on. The non-absorbent and fast-draining design has also made this a popular flooring solution for dog kennels.
Pebble Home Gym Tile Flooring
Home Gym Tile flooring also works really well for those shopping for a grooming mat. It is made of high-density EVA foam with a durable surface top texture pebble design. Like the other options, this is very lightweight and portable, and it is latex and lead-free.
It is durable for use under-grooming equipment and pets, and its interlocking design makes for an easy DIY installation. These tiles are rugged and high density as well as attractive and versatile. They are also nonabsorbent and tight-fitting.
