Wet hair tangles easily, attracts more dirt, and gives off that distinctly unpleasant wet dog smell. So getting a quality dog dryer is an important investment to keep your dog and your home clean and smelling good.
It’s especially important in the winter and cold climates where walking around with wet fur can end up making the dog freeze.
You would be surprised how many dog dryers there are on the market and this can make it difficult to shop. So we wanted to make the process a little easier for you by talking a bit about our 5 favorite choices for best dog dryers:
The B-Air dryer is definitely one of the more advanced models of dog dryer on the market right now. It comes with a set of 4 separate attachments so you have a variety of options for giving your dog’s coat that extra care.
It’s also insulated so that it works more quietly. This is particularly important for nervous dogs who might get anxious around the sound of a dog dryer. It also has 2 different speeds so that you can choose a more gentle air flow for sensitive dogs (or for fur that’s not totally saturated). For the tougher jobs, use the more powerful second speed.
Overall, it’s a great dryer and it has a lot of functionality. You can leave your dog looking like he just walked out of a professional groomer!
One of the best things about the Go Pet dog dryer is its versatility. It has two different speeds of air flow and two different temperature controls so that it can be powerful enough to handle the thick coat of a husky and gentle enough to use on a Yorkshire Terrier.
It’s even safe to use for cats—although trying to bathe cat is usually a pretty grueling experience as is.
This is a fantastic and very budget friendly choice for owners of any breed!
The Puff N Fluff is relatively new in the dog dryer market but it’s already become quite famous and for good reason! It is not a standalone dog dryer. It’s actually a kind of bag that you place over your dog’s body (don’t worry the head stays exposed).
You can than connect to any dog dryer (or even your own hair dryer) and that will inflate the bag and surround your pooch in a warm, gentle air flow. This takes all the work out of drying your dog!
The X Power B-55 dog dryer is a wonderful compact model that is easy to carry and store. It also comes with some very helpful attachments such as a brush/comb attachment so that you can dry and detangle all at the same time.
It also has a vacuum setting so that you can easily clean up the fur that shed or was clipped after a grooming session. It’s amazing how affordable this is considering how functional and convenient it is!
The Flying One High Velocity dog dryer is a more heavy duty model intended for serious grooming work. It is well-manufactured so that it will last you for many years and the powerful motor can handle anything from the gentlest flow of air to a powerful air flow ready to handle the toughest jobs.
There is also a range of heat settings from as low as 81 degrees to as high as 160 degrees (Fahrenheit). There’s also the option to turn the heat off entirely and just have room temperature air.
Overall, this is a top of the line dog dryer that allows you to customize the drying experience as much as possible.
When selecting a dog dryer, take things into consideration like your dog’s size, the thickness of their coat, and their temperament. What work’s for your friend’s Rottweiler may not be the best option for your pug.
