Talking about drying dogs.
I know that I seem to be repeating myself, but I am always reading comments (on groomer forums) from groomers asking questions about High Velocity Dryers.
I guess I talk about it so much, because I almost had to quit grooming about 12 years ago.
I had spent the first 16 years of my grooming career blow drying dogs with a stand dryer or handheld dryer.
Also, 16 years of brushing out every bit of undercoat before I bathed a dog.
Sixteen years of killing my wrists.
The pain in my wrists got so bad I closed my shop and went Mobile.
That move saved my career.
Not becoming a Mobile Groomer.
It was the fact that I went to a seminar where the speaker showed everyone how to use a High Velocity Dryer to completely dry a dog.
I was able to have all of my dogs groomed within a hour while grooming mobile because of that dryer.
My wrists rarely hurt me anymore, unless I have some excessive brushing to do.
I spent last week taking some video of drying several different dogs.
I am able to get every dog that I use the High Velocity dryer on 90 to 100 percent dry straight from the tub.
However, I have discovered that not every High Velocity dryer out there is good for fluff drying dogs.
I learned the hard way that the 'Metro' HV dryer is awful for fluff drying.
The hose is way too small and narrow.
I sent back the 'K-9 I Dryer' because the air got way too hot very fast.
So far my favorite High Velocity Dryers have been 'The Davis Dryer' and the 'K-9 Fluffer'.
I am sure that there are others out there, I just haven't had a chance to use them. :)
Anyway, if you like fluff drying your dogs, and you should!
Or, if you didn't think you could fluff dry a dog with a High Velocity Dryer.

I would love to hear about other High Velocity Dryers that other groomers are using and really like. :)
