I quick grooms on my lap, but I donít do mats or anything more than 10 minutes on my lap (unless I can stop a lot for ear scratches and belly rubs). I had the same problem, Shama Mama, and I couldnít bear it! He would give me sad faces and lay down just out of reach. I have a little nesting table Iíve been using lately. Itís a tiny bit too long so sometimes itís uncomfortable when he lays on the other end, but so far I canít think of a good place to store a real grooming table (or even a tabletop setup) thatís near enough to where Iíd actually use it.
Advantages and disadvantages to everything! Iím glad I can groom my Havanese anywhere at any time while he holds still on my lap. But, I probably should have spent an equal amount of time training him on a table, just to make it easier to do both.
