Having the right dog grooming equipment is essential when embarking on a career as a groomer or even when deciding to groom your own dog.
Now the term equipment covers quite a range of grooming supply items. So which do you really need? How long does your dog grooming equipment list need to be?
The answer depends on whether or not you are working for yourself or instead, working for a dog grooming salon.
Alternatively, you might be a dog owner preferring to groom your own dog at home. If you are a professional groomer, then your startup list will be quite comprehensive, including items such as a grooming table, tub and clippers. Once set up, your list will consist mostly of replacement items such as clipper blades.
