Ask a Question

Why do I need a Groomers Helper?

Earn More Income

If you could groom more efficiently, then you could do more grooms per day and therefore earn more money per day.

Additonal revenues generated yearly by being able to groom more dogs in the same amount of time:

Groom 1 Extra
Groom 2 Extra
Groom 3 Extra

Consider this, if the Groomers Helper® allows you to groom just one more dog a day at an average of $40/dog. That’s an extra $200/week, $10,400/year and over a 20 year period that’s $192,000!


If you groom 4-8 pets per day by yourself you need an extra pair of hands. Let’s average that to 6 per day.

Therefore, 6 pets/day, 5 days/week – that equals 30 pets/week, which is 1500 pets/year.

Divide $124.95(retail cost of Groomers Helper®), by 1,500 and you get $ 0.083 per grooming or about 67 cents/day. Is that cost worth it to be safer and less stressed? That’s just $3.35/week to groom stress free, hands free, etc.

That’s only one person! If you have multiple groomers it just gets better from there. At $40 extra a day the helper will pay for itself in less than 4 days.

Forget groomer burnout, workman’s comp claims, costly visits to the vet because an employee overly struggled with the pet and the groomer or the pet was hurt. Those issues will be greatly reduced.


Installing And Using The Groomers Helper®



STEP 1. Place the Groomers Helper® Clamp around your grooming arm and tighten it at the appropriate height. NOTE: The Groomers Helper® Clamp has been designed to fit square and round grooming arms from 3/4″ to 1″. The tether (rope) should face the pet and the adjusting knob should face you. If you are right handed the slide button should be to your right. Left handed the slide button should be on your left.

STEP 2. Attach the Groomers Helper® Loop to the pet. The loop should fit snugly around the neck. Use the stainless steel cam lock to size down the loop to the back of the pet’s neck. You should be able to get two fingers between the loop and the pet’s neck. In the event of an emergency such as a seizure you may release the pet immediately by using the quick release buckle on the loop.

STEP 3. Spin the loop around and connect it to the top of the grooming arm.

STEP 4. Attach the tether to the D-Ring on the Groomers Helper® Loop.

STEP 5. Adjust the arm’s height so that the pet is standing normally with just a little slack. You can now pull the tether (rope) in gently, bringing the pet closer to the arm and lock the slide button when you reach the desired distance from the grooming arm. The Groomers Helper® pulls the loop away from the pet’s trachea, eliminating choking.

NOTE: At first, use with a calm pet so you can become acquainted with your Groomers Helper®. You may develop a rapport with them by gently pulling in the tether. You will feel that they are pulling back, which is their natural instinct. Let them pull back and think they won the “Tug-of-War” before you lock the tether. They usually calm down after the second or third “win” and you are now playing with them. It is easy to now make friends. Most pets respond favorably and calm down when they realize they are in restraints and not fighting you. As the pet calms down you may release more and more, until almost no restraint is needed. For general grooming let the pet just relax with slack in the tether. Only enough slack so they cannot chew the tether.


Reduce The Chances Of Being Bitten

If you think the pet might be a biter use the technique outlined below:

  1. Pull the tether (rope) through the Groomers Helper® clamp all the way.
  2. Open the quick release buckle on the loop.
  3. Face the pet away from you while the pet is sitting on the grooming table and sling the loop over the pet’s head from behind them and reconnect the quick release buckle behind the pet’s head.
  4. Attach the tether (rope on the Groomers Helper® clamp) to the “D” ring on the loop behind the pet’s head.
  5. Swivel the loop around the pet’s neck toward the arm so the “D” ring with the attached tether is positioned by the pet’s throat.
  6. While holding the large swivel eye bolt snap on top of the loop slide the stainless steel cam-loc down to the back of the neck and snap closed. Remember to allow for at least two fingers between the loop and the pet’s neck.
  7. Attach the swivel bolt snap to the eye at the top of the grooming arm and adjust the arm’s height so that the pet is standing normally with just a little slack. Never hang the pet with a tight loop!
  8. You can now pull the tether (rope) in gently bringing the pet closer to the arm and lock the slide button when you reach the desired distance from the grooming arm.

**Your hands should never be in front of the pet’s muzzle to be bitten.


Using The Different Pet Positioning Options

  • FIRST POSITION: For general grooming so the pet cannot hang himself. Also the pet cannot back off, jump off, fall off, or tip the table over. You are now grooming hands free. You can do nails with one groomer on most dogs. No more spinners.
  • SECOND POSITION: By putting the Groomers Helper® by the muzzle of the pet they cannot drop their heads so de-matting the chest and legs is much easier. No more head-droppers.
  • THIRD POSITION: By putting the Groomers Helper® above the dogs head you can now quickly muzzle the dog to remove a matt or eye debris.
  • NO GROOMING ARM: The no grooming arm in front for better top knots and better beards is attained with the extra arm and clamp set.
  • TRI-TIE POSITION: The Tri-tie position needs the extra clamp and arm set and another Groomers Helper®. No more head bobblers.
  • NO-SIT POSITION: By mounting the arm and clamp at the opposite end of the table, you can now put the Groomers Helper® around the dogs waist as shown. Now the dog is unable to sit and there is minimal equipment that gets in the way.

Advanced positioning: The no grooming arm in front position for better top knots and beards is attained with the extra arm and clamp set. In the secured to the arm position you may secure the pets head to one side of the grooming arm allowing you to be protected on the other side for cleaning and plucking ears, dematting beards on pets with no muzzle and you can do the nails on the toughest of dogs. This is usually a two-person operation. The tri-tie position for the elderly, blind and deaf dogs. No more head bobblers. This position needs the extra clamp & arm set and a second Groomers Helper®

The Cat Cross-tie position is attained with the extra clamp and arm set. Never put the loop around the cat’s neck. You may attach the loop either around the chest behind the front legs or over one shoulder and under the other arm. Clamp the grooming loop to the extra clamp and cat crosstie arm positioned on the opposite end of the table from the main grooming arm. Bring the Groomers Helper® down to the table deck so the slide button still operates. You can now hook the tether to the “D” ring on the loop. Open up the quick release and you are ready to crosstie the cat flat on the table so you do not have to scruff him at all times.

We offer free shipping on orders over $99.

We know that high-quality pet care equipment is heavy and we do not want shipping costs to be an issue when you buy from us. That’s why on most orders over $99, shipping is 100% free!
Please note that in some specific situations, unfortunately, we cannot offer free shipping. These include:
  • International orders
  • Orders shipped outside the contiguous United States
  • Some brands such as TK, Rhino and Owens have a higher minimum order amount to qualify for free shipping (their items are much larger and heavier than typical orders)
  • Very large items (e.g., kennel fences) that must be shipped via large industrial freight trucks, when shipped to a non-commercial address or an address with limited access. (On these we still cover the shipping costs, while the customer pays the freight company’s additional delivery fee – usually $70 to $80 on most orders)
We want to make sure you have all the relevant shipping cost information when placing your order. So if you have any questions, please get in touch!
Write to us at, call us at 1-855-PET-PRO1 or you can message us on Facebook!

We pride ourselves in maintaining excellent communication between our suppliers and our customers.

Please take some time to review our shipping process to know exactly what to expect when placing an order with us.

Order Confirmation

As soon as you place your order you will receive an order confirmation e-mail and we will immediately notify the appropriate supplier to begin processing your order.

Item Availability

While we almost always have the most up-to-date inventory information, there are rare occasions in which an item may be unavailable or on back-order. If the item is unavailable, we'll let you know and give you the option of receiving a refund or ordering a similar item. If the item is on back-order, we will contact you directly and provide you with an updated shipment date. From there you may either choose to cancel the order or continue with the updated shipment date. Certain made-to-order items may have a longer than normal lead time. If this is the case, the lead time will be specified on the product page.

If you would like to confirm the availability or potential lead time of an item prior to purchasing, please email us at or call us at 1-855-PET-PRO1.

Delivery Estimates

For standard orders we normally ship within 1 to 3 business days and you can expect to receive your goods in 3 to 10 business days total. Please allow 1 to 3 weeks if your order is large and must be shipped by LTL freight truck (as opposed to standard carriers such as Fedex or UPS). For custom orders that require fabrication by our manufacturers, please allow 2 to 4 weeks for fabrication and shipping. Please note that some items may either be on back order with our manufacturer or require more weeks for fabrication and lead times may be longer than 4-6 weeks (especially larger metal items) - these will typically be flagged on our product pages for that product if that is the case. If you are not sure about shipping times for your product or require a rush order, please contact us and our team will check with the manufacturer to confirm shipping time for your specific product or variant. In all cases, to ensure we meet your shipping time needs, please just contact our team at or 1-855-PET-PRO1.

Shipping Confirmation

We ship from warehouses all across the country, depending on the item(s) ordered and your location. Depending on the physical size of your order, items will ship either by freight or a regular parcel carrier such as USPS, Fed Ex, or UPS.


LTL (less-than-truckload) Freight is used when shipments are 120 lb+ or for oversized equipment, which results in a truck with a large container delivering your order. Our freight carrier will contact you once your order makes it to the distribution center closest to the delivery address specified, and set up an appointment time for delivery.

Pet Pro Supply Co. Free LTL Freight Shipping - Curbside Delivery

Our standard Free Freight Shipping option for LTL deliveries is curbside, which is to a delivery to a Commercial Address and does not include a liftgate. If your order is to be shipped freight, you will have the option to specify whether the item will be delivered to a Residential, Limited Access, or Commercial address. If there is no option to select a shipping location, then this cost is already included in the price.

We strongly recommend adding the optional Liftgate for all deliveries to locations without a loading dock or forklift.

Freight Delivery Locations

This option specifies whether the delivery location is a Commercial, Residential, Residential Business, or a Limited Access address.

  • Commercial - These addresses are those defined by our freight carriers and/or zoned by local municipalities as commercial sites. Typically these addresses are zoned as commercial real estate or are used exclusively for business. Most commercial sites have tractor-trailer access and a loading dock.
  • Residential - If the address used a residence, select this option. This includes Apartment/Condo complexes and dormitories.
  • Residential Business - Any business being operated from a home, apartment, or other dwelling where people live on the premises is considered to be a Residential Business.
  • Limited Access - Locations where deliveries are restricted, limited, or very far from a distribution center. Examples Include:
    • Place of Worship
    • Restricted Areas - Secure Research Facilities, Military Bases/Installations, Correctional Facilities, Government Buildings
    • Farms, Ranches, and Rural Areas
    • Recreational Areas - Camps, Parks, Fairs, Carnivals, etc.
    • Individual Storage Units
    • Sites - Convention Centers, Construction Sites, Mines
    • Schools and Universities
    • Commercial establishments not open to the walk-in public during normal business hours

Freight Liftgate

A liftgate is a hydraulic lift that is attached to the back of a truck that can lower freight to ground level. Freight carriers prevent their drivers from assisting with the unloading of heavy equipment other than using a liftgate to ground level. We highly recommend any delivery address without a loading dock, select this option.

However, please know that for certain very long items, such as Kennels over 6' in length, a Liftgate will not be able to bring the entire order down to ground level. Please have the necessary manpower available to receive your items with limited delay to the driver.
