I've had my Edemco dryer (that Marj posted the link for) for at least 5 years and it is still working well but it is not my 'every day' dryer. it's my travel dryer for dog shows so it doesn't get heavy use. It gets thrown in and out of my car and hotel rooms and it has held up.

A few things about it - it is LOUD. To me, that is not really a problem but some people really don't want a loud dryer. It also does not get very hot which for me, also is not a problem because I don't like feeling like I'm scalding my dogs with hot air.

It is also something you will have to get used to. I did not like it the first time I used it but the more I used it, the more i grew to love it. The air flow is pretty strong (stronger than my bigger Edemco, really) and it really is something you'll have to get used to using. The tripod legs don't take up that much room and it is easy to scoot around with your foot. My huge Edemco has a really wide wheel base and is not good for tight spots!

As far as the round table, if you are trying to conserve space, then this is a great table. I do not use it every day (have a regular grooming table) but if I have a really wild puppy who doesn't like grooming and fights it like crazy, I like it because it gives them a bit more security on the table and if they try to throw themselves off the table, they just 'fall' a couple inches to the table below and usually that lets them know that 'oops, there are consequences here, maybe I shouldn't be a crazy wild beast.'

The hair maid stand also is useful for holding a dryer or a third arm for a grooming table.

what is your everyday dryer?

Thank you Stacey. Does the loud dryer bother / frighten the dogs? So much money, but I'm so sick of holding the hairdryer and the stand I bought (lower than this one marjy posted) just blows in one area of the dog and that stinks too. I'm picking up/putting down dryer alot.
Penny likes the warmer air as she gets colder than Sammie for some reason. How cold is this big one?

stacey, what dryer do you use at home?

This is such a huge expense. But for many years. You guys are helping so much. I like the that the 30x18" table folds up, so I'm ok with it being portable (I hope its not super heavy) and I will get the arm on the table too. Here is what I am about to order. PetEdge is $10.00 less than Amazon if you use the standard 5-7 day shipping rates. The dryer might be white when it arrives. not sure.....sorry for the big pics.

Mine is without the arm and the table is not heavy to move around, yet it's super stable. It's not the same table as far as I can tell, but generally the same design. The table is actually wood when I look underneath, but the sides and top are covered with black rubber materials and the frame and legs are chrome... or at least silver metal (lol). Sturdy for sure, but lightweight.

Thats great! I saw several types. this one seems to be in the middle range. enough for my 4 1/2 lb babies, right? I like the purple top too. and the arm can be moved around. Penny is 1 yr old and the leash thing will help with her for sure. I am kinda torn because the turntable can go outside on porch in sunshine, so easily.
thanks again!

If you have this table please give me pros/cons---how do you liked it? Thank you so much!



This is other option 30"x18" for $75.00.
Kandis i have both of these tables, both in pink and where do they sit...in the garage! I also have a changing table that i tried like Marj has and it's in the garage too...i do better with a comfortable chair and ottoman.

I have the Edemco Economy dryer and i absolutely love it. It's loud but they do get used to it, i've had mine for several years now and it has more than paid for itself. Mine is white...when i saw a pic of Marj's i thought her's would be black but was surprised hers was white too. I don't think you'll be sorry that you got the dryer.

Thank you Deb. I am going to get the dryer. I want a groom table. With my back I need something that I can keep them still on (hence table/strap) to make it go faster. They never move around with the groomer. I tried sitting down for my back with vanity stool and had to stand up within a min or so, as they scooted away from me. I saw a pic of this a table with a chair ??

thanks Marjy. That sounds light enough like it will be ok once a week or I may leave it up in spare room. You don't use this table anymore do you?

about the strap, I need it for Penny. she is wiggle worm. she wasn't in beginning though...weird.
