“It took less than 10 minutes to get him nearly a 100% dry! And it worked great on my long haired dog too no tangle, no mess”
Groomers use cage dryers for a variety of reasons. A damp dog can become chilled (hypothermic) if it is exposed to cool temperatures over a period of time. In a cool grooming environment, blowing warm air on a damp dog keeps it comfortable until it is time for it to be finish dried on the table. In a busy grooming shop, it makes sense to bathe several dogs and let some of them become partially dried while waiting to be fluff dried or finish dried. Meanwhile, the groomer can be bathing, prepping or finishing other dogs. Used in this way, cage dryers can be an enormous time saver. Also, spending some quiet time in a cage can offer an important rest period during the grooming process for cats, puppies, very nervous dogs and geriatric dogs.
Marissa Streng is the young inventor behind Puff-n-Fluff Dog Dryer, a drying system designed specifically for small wet dogs. On the second episode of Steve Harvey’s Funderdome, Marissa (and her pet pug Mojo) will give a demonstration. Not only does it dry dogs fast (in minutes!) but it also reduces that stinky wet dog odor.
Here are some ways to help improve your dog’s dry skin.
Hi thanks for the tips on how to fluff dry a dog.
Your dog's hair will be smooth, shiny, and clean before class while eliminating excess fluff and wavy curls. No seam lines will mar their coat as your dog finishes drying. It can also be used as a cooling jacket.If cage dryers are used, they should be placed in a room where a staff member can watch the dogs at all times. It is a good idea to keep thermometers in cages, out of the reach of pets, so that the temperature can easily be observed at a glance. It’s important to note that groomers should not assume a dog will exhibit distress if it becomes overheated. It is also recommended that all staff members know the symptoms of overheating and what first aid steps to take while the pet is being transported to a veterinarian.Groomers need to be aware that certain dogs are more prone to having difficulty with heat. For example, brachycephalic dogs—breeds with short muzzles such as pugs, shih tzus and bulldogs—should not be cage dried. Very young or very old dogs should be carefully monitored if heated dryers are used, as should very anxious dogs. Wet fur is a poor insulator and as such causes dogs to lose heat quickly. So its very important to get your dog dry quickly. Drypet dog towels will do the trick.
