Looking for advice from our new Big Paw family. Iz is a 13 weeks old Newf - has terrible "potty manners" and has had 4 baths in the 4 weeks we have had him home. (Why do they walk in poop???) It's time for us to get a blower (it takes forevever to try him). What do you all recommend and more importantly - where to buy it? Our breeder uses the K-9 - pretty expensive! At this point - we are sparing nothing for our new "baby" and want to do what's right. We plan to show him - so this will be a necessity down the line.

OMG! Could Iz be any cuter of have sweeter markings? Accckkk..I'm in love.

To answer your question though, we use the Challengeair 2000 Animal Dryer by Double K Industries. It works really well with our Newf and was one of the more affordable ones that our breeder recommended to us back in '02. We are looking to up grade to a double engine dryer for more power and a quicker drying time. Good luck though!

omg.... Iz is too cute, you all just have to stop buying and posting pics of long haired puppies  Cheesy After grooming many many hours a day for years I decided I wanted only short haired dogs lol, but its getting harder and harder lol.

For your queston though, you have the really big stand dryers. On plus side, they are very fast, convenient at home. On the minus side though they are or can be really expensive and they totally suck if you want to bring them to shows.

For dryers that have a good capacity and are also okay to bring, you have a few that I think are very good and not too prizy. Metro Blaster B-3 is okay but with a newf. it will take a bit to get dry. the sibling Master Blaster MB-3 is great, fast and super effectiv but quite a bit more costly. Also the Metro Air Force Dryer the one with 4.0 php is really great and a really good price too.

If you want the dryer to be hands free, and buy one of the smaller  ones, just get one of the "arms" with a clip holder for the dryer hose and voila you have a hands free dryer and can use both hands to brush and hold.

Whatever you choose, I would check catalogs, and online, because if you order from petstores the add on quite a bit of money, money Iz can get lotsa lotsa toys for instead  Grin
