Don't cringe at the price of the this comb, it is great and well worth the price. It is my number one grooming supply for combing out the boys. I use both ends. I did not buy the handle for the comb, it is fine without it. I have the 005 Comb. See the link.

Oh! By the way, you will spend more money on hair supplies on your Hav than you do yourself, so don't be surprised.

Thanks for the information. Harley is my 1st Hav. But for the past 20 years- going to the groomer has been a regular -in my budget. So much so, that I cut my own hair so I can afford.
On my wish list,which I plan to order this weekend, is 005 CC comb and the wood pic brush. Now my big or shall I say my costly question--what type of hair blower do you use?
Also what do you recommend for shampoo and conditioner-is it all pricey??

I still use my human hair dryer!

When I was shopping for a dryer, I looked for low/high speeds, warm, cool, hot. The most important part was the sound, yes I tried them on in the store to see which one was more quiet and did not have that shrill high hair splitting sound.

I wanted a good dryer on the quiet side with lots of blowing power. Let me see what the name of it is.....I did not shop brands, I shopped sounds of the dryer. The dryer is called Infiniti, bought 4 years ago, so it may not be available now. I still use it, love it.

I used just a good, variable speed, variable temp human hair dryer for a long time too. I now have a B'air forced air dryer too. They are a pretty inexpensive forced air dryer, but VERY loud. Fortunately, the hose is long enough that I can put the canister outside the bathroom where I dry Kodi, to keep the noise down. (not that he seems to care, but I don't like it!

These days I use both, just to cut down drying time. I put the human dryer (which isn't as forceful) on a stand on one side of him, then work on the other side with the force dryer. Then I switch sides. I can get him almost completely dry in about 30 minutes this way.

When you say 30 minutes to dry him, does that include brushing as you dry or do you just dry AND then brush through?

When I dry, I dry a little while combing out, the rush of the hair dryer is drying the hair as I am picking it up. It does not take long to dry at all. I only dry maybe 80%

I use a regular human hair dryer. If there is an Ulta store near you, they have a bunch of dryers on display that you can try out. I recommend one that is more quiet and has a cool setting option. See which one fits your hand best. They usually have a coupon in the Sunday paper. The one I bought was inexpensive.
