  • All this talk about grooming or sitting now i have a question...

    What type of stools do you use? Where did you purchase it from? Ive seen many out there wondered which is better then the other? Me and the wife arent 150lbs no more so we need something sturdy.

    I use a leather executive office chair. It is height adjustable and has a nice comfy high back that gives me plenty of support. I don't care for stools. They don't give me the back support I need

          I have an office chair, no arms, on wheels. This lets me move around the dog easily AND back up quickly if need be.

            I use the leather saddle chair from Ryans Pet Supply and let me tell you, I'm not petite. It can handle a heavy person.

              I have used the high back office chair for some years now, but at my current job they provided the rodeo stools. Hated them.
              So I went out this week and bought a secy's chair from Hobby Lobby. 69.99 on clearance for 13.99, yep, that's right, 13.99.
              Used it today; luv it luv it.
              I have a similar but much older chair in my mobile that I use when I am doing more than one dog in a day, to rest my back.

                I have a plain boring office chair at work but at home I use a very cushy drum throne with no back

                Now if I could only keep my husband the drummer from stealing it!

                  something to think about...

                  When you groom standing you have full range of motion. Once you sit down, depending on how you sit, your full range of motion can be impared. Your pelvis in a sitting position is ususlly not in alignment as it would be when standing. Most of us slouch when we sit, sitting back on our tail bone as it were.

                  If you are going to sit and groom, you need a base [to sit on] that keeps you in alignment. The best stool/chair that I know of to accomplish that is a Rodeo stool. Ryan's has them as well as others. They keep your pelvis tipped in proper alignment, you really can't slouch if you are seated on one. You back will not become sore because you are seated in a slouch. Because you are aligned , you will have great full range of motion, as if you were standing.

                  I've used a rodeo stool for the last 6 years, if I try to sit on a stool or chair, I find within a short time I am having issues with my back. Even just sitting at the computer, which I am using a dining room chair...can't sit here too long without issues.

                  If you have a chance to sit on one, do it and see how it feels.

                    I have a hydraulic stool with a leather seat and foot rest. I bought it at Home Depot 3 years ago for about $80. It doesn't have wheels - not good. The seat turns but is 'sculpted' so you can only sit on it one way - also not good, I wish it were just flat all over. Think I'm overdue for a new one!

                    Something to remember though. When scissoring, I have to stand so that I can move my whole body/arm as I scissor. I usually only sit when clippering.

                        Me, too.
                        Foxhound Lady, what are high quality brands of drum thrones? I am going to use my rolling groomer's chair from Ryan's for a few years until I wear it out, but, I want to replace it with a drum throne.
