Guide to Dog Blowers.
In the winter months here in Wisconsin, I often take my dogs to a local indoor play area where I can blow off all of the snow from their coats with a leaf blower. Inevitably, someone will ask me “what kind of dog blower is that?” – so now you know!
Dog Blower / Dog Dryer Type: Quiet Leaf Blowers designed for indoor use. Cost: $50 to $200 Battery Life: 30 minutes (more info below) Noise Level: Moderate-High Warranty Length: None found Charging Time: 1 hour – 2 hours Running time per full charge: N/A Benefits over traditional grooming tools: Quickly blows out loose dirt and water before it has the chance to drip down into your dog’s undercoat. Also removes excess hair from shedding breeds which is both a time saver and eliminates the need for a slicker brush after blowing out the coat. Can be used on all dog coats including curly coats with no risk of damaging the coat’s texture or cuticle scales, as is often the case with a slicker or pin brush. Additional Benefits: Gives you a chance to interact with your dog those who offer rewards during grooming sessions learn faster & look forward to future grooming/playtime sessions together!
In comparison to human products…Blower Dog Dryers are more powerful than their human counterparts, as they must generate enough airflow to effectively remove large quantities of water from your pet’s fur in a very short period of time. Dogs are also covered in fur, which can make removing water difficult; therefore blower dog dryers need to be more powerful than their human counterparts for this reason as well.
