If you know of another dryer that is better, please let me know!
I think I have that dryer is it a Bear air Dryer ? I don't recommend it. Yes its cool air which is good but it is so loud it scares the holly heck out of the sisters. They shake and try to turn the whole time and my ears get damaged by the noise. If I was to really get my wish it would be a good professional stand up dryer $400 . My realistic wish would be the CC cool air dryer with variable speed.www.showdogstore.com/KoolDryers
I would get the small one because of the price.
Linda do you like yours can we see a picture? I use a human one now with my tiny heater next to the grooming table. I have a cute little rounder table top for the sisters it comes with the grooming arm and works great.

Suzi, yes, I like this dryer so far. I took some measurements. The tank is 15 inches long from the wide maroon-colored end to where the hose hooks on. The body is 7 inches wide, 11 inches tall including the handle. The maroon end has a foam filter that is easily removed to clean, and the maroon end itself slides off and there is another foam filter inside to remove for cleaning - everything really easy to get at. The cord is about 12 feet long, very heavy duty. The hose is about 6 feet long. Three nozzles. Variable speed dial. It is not some flimsy piece of equipment. And it was surprisingly quiet. I expected shop vac loud. I think it is quieter than my human dryer.

I had done some research and decided on this one or a Kool Pup or Kool Dry dryer, but wanted to see them. So went to a dog show and talked to a vendor who sells both. This one has a motor size equivalent to the larger Kool Dry dryer, but cost less than the smaller Kool Pup dryer. I have no clue where it is made. It does not say on the dryer that I can see. I need to see if I can find the card that came with it. Usually I try to watch for made in USA, but it didn't cross my mind when looking for the dryer - have no idea why. I just knew I wanted variable speed, not too loud, and didn't cost an arm and a leg. If you are looking for small and dainty, look elsewhere! Cuz this isn't. It is very sturdy.

I have not heard of the Dog Shammy dryer. It never came up in any of my searches.

I am on my 2nd Air Force Dryer. The first "died", as well as several other things, at a dog show with grooming under a tent and a tornado came through. Although it didn't mess up the tent, lots of water; my crates had 2 inches inside. Anything electrical (though not plugged in) was ruined and a couple of things rusted. I had the 1st for over 25 years.

I have a CC cool air dryer and have had it for 25 years with no problems. It has paid for itself many times over in convenience and efficiency. If it quit tomorrow, I'd buy another one in a heartbeat!

That looks nice but it doesn't say its cool air?
Linda yours looks like it could be used as a leaf blower with that long cord I waited about $100 on mine I'll have to bring the sisters up for a visit and try yours out.

I have a CC dryer - the smaller one - and I love it.

That looks like it could be a nice dryer! And the price looks decent. Have you found any reviews on it?

Suzi, I would think it would mention a heat element if it had one. One thing about mine that I wish was at bit different is to have the hose a bit more flexible. It is a bit stiff.

Leaf blower! Hmmmmmmm.......

Yeah, Suz, it just gets a little heat from the motor. And Linda, I went in search of reviews and couldn't find a thing, except someone on the other forum had bought one a couple years ago and really liked it. So I emailed the company and asked why the heck there would be NO reviews about their product!?! We'll see what they have to say about that!

Every time I see a picture of Suzi's little grooming table I think it'd be perfect for me since I have no place to set up a full table (or store it) and don't even have anywhere where I could just attach a grooming arm. I always mean to see if I can find one in Canada and then forget to look. But today I found it on Amazon Canada (in blue) so I ordered it. I'm pretty sure it's the same one. I won't get it for a few weeks, but hopefully it'll help. It would be nice to be able to comb him out and have both my hands free. I'm sure there'd be less tugging on him that way.
