Types Of Pet Hair Dryer
If you are at home or an on-the-go dog groomer, then this type will be best for you. They are easy to move around and set in any environment, and often come with long hoses to make it easier to dry all areas of your pet. Many are high velocity for quicker drying times
These models will likely look just like a human hair dryer, but come complete with stands which make them easier to manoeuvre around a grooming table. As your client sits still, the dryer will often reach above the dog, so your hands are free to carry on grooming
Your dog may be quite nervous and scared of the sound the vacuum cleaner or washing machine makes. Or, they may be inquisitive and love to know where the sound is coming from. Either way, they will probably be slightly unnerved by the sound and look of a pet grooming dryer at first.
Catering the noise produced to your dog is important, to ensure they will comfortably sit still and also not get too agitated. There are some models out there which will be fine for nervous dogs, but take note of other reviews and specifications too.
The noise may be particularly important if you will be drying several dogs with the one model, such as if you are a professional – Bernie the Mountain dog may be fine, but Polly the poodle could find it overwhelming.
Just as not every dog likes the same noise levels, power could also be an issue. Some won’t even mind strong wind, whereas others may prefer a gentle breeze. It will also allow you to cater to different fur lengths and breeds.
Changing the power and speed may also make a difference to the noise created.
Unless you are a professional who can keep the stand by the grooming table at all times, you are going to have to have the space to store the dryer. Take note of the dimensions and size, plus any attachments which will need to be kept safe.
Talking of additional accessories, you may find a dryer which offers brush and comb attachments as well as different sized nozzles handy. This will allow you to dry several fur types, from long to short hair, as well as different sized dogs.
You may also find that your pet has a particular preference to which is used as they can offer varying amounts of power.
