How long does it take you to dry your Hav?

I'm considering upgrading from the Andis Ionic/Ceramic Pet Dryer to a Kool Pup if there's a reasonable amount of time to be saved? Would anybody be interested in comparing their drying times using all various dryers, noting how much coat the dogs have?

I've been bin-bathing Rory and it takes 37 minutes to get her dry using the cool setting. I'd call hers a full coat, not strictly a show coat, but not trimmed except sanitary and feet.

Kodi is in full coat, and I think his coat is a little thicker than Rory's and it's definitely longer. (Both just because he is fully adult). It tkaes me less than half an hour with the Kool Pup. It took clse to twice that time with a strong, human, ionic dryer.

Gary - what great photos! Rory is so cute and then after her bath and blowout, she's BEAUTIFUL. I have a Kool Pup dryer but I usually stop blow drying Emmie before she's completely dry, after about 15-20 minutes. Your last photo inspires me to do a better job.

Thanks Jeanne, we're still waiting for the facial hair I had clipped to grow back, and I really don't have styling skill, I just puff her back up after she's clean.

My younger brother said she looked like one of those urban legend rats that climb up through the pipes into your toilet :-(

Dog grooming

Okay, did you take professional grooming lessons. That is amazing. Here is my dog when I am done with her. My dogs knows when she is clean and beautiful, so she immediately looks for something nasty to roll in. Why do they do that!!!!

You are way to modest! Your little guy looks great. Really, I am showing your images all around the shelter this AM. Never thought about it before, but if we spend more time grooming these little guys we might find them homes easier.

Rory looks amazing! I've never really timed myself but I think bath days take about an hour with our Kool Pup. Mind you that includes a thorough comb out, set up, the actual bath, some snuggle time in a towel to help soak up as much water as possible, a few minutes of RLH to get the willies out post-bath pre-dry, and drying. Drying alone take about 15/20 or so minutes I'd say. Her coat looks to be fairly similar in length as Rory's.
