I bathe my 2 toy poodles once a week. Does anyone have any good recommendations for a blow dryer. My Miu Miu has very soft and long pretty hair. But it takes so long to dry. Thanks

I'm ordering this (http://www.petedge.com/catalog/product.jsp?productId=43046&categoryId=191&parentCategoryId=190&productVariantId=116851&qty=1&itemGUID=c55f0049c0a86e6501042c254bb324c5&shipTo=Me-v7l2r6&shipToZip=v7l2r6) dryer for Eden -- I like that it's small and the speed will probably cut down just from the different style used (pet dryers = better imo). Plus it's pretty cheap considering the regular sized pet dryers, so hopefully it'll work out.

I would love to have a proper pet dryer but unfortunately I'm using my own hair dryer to dry them Laughing I don't have a stand for it too so it's a bit challenging coz I only have 1 free hand for brushing and combing.

Lol me too, I'm always paranoid about accidentally burning her or something (I'm really the over-involved new parent with her!). I like the natural air aspect of the pet dryer. We'll see!

Can you please let me know if that dryer works? I am using my regular human dryer as well. The one that my groomer recommended was $299. I thought that was pricey so never looked into anything else. Thanks.

Will do! Yeah, the price of the mini was reasonable enough for me to try it.

Wow, it's been a while since I last posted... Sad

We use the Metro Air Force Commander and it has served us well for the last 9 years... The air stays at a warm temp (never hot) no matter how long you use it and has 2 speeds. It is a bit loud, but that has never been a problem with either of our toys. I have found that the only way to get that puffy and smooth hair look is by using one of these dryers (human hair dryers just don't cut it). This is the one we use:

Hope this helps... Smile

A stand dryer will work best leaving both hands free to comb and brush out your babies.
My question is why do you bathe them once a week? Are they dirty?
The natural oils in their skin is good for their coats, bathing to much removes the oill.

They sleep in bed with us that's why I bathe them so often. I've been lazy and pushing it to 10-14 days recently. Gucci's skin use to be dry and flaky after bathing. I switched to CC shampoo, thick n thicker, and ice on ice. There is no more dryness and no more flakes. Their coats are very soft and pretty. I also brought some fish oil for them but they both hate it. I used a syringe to give it to them but Miu Miu would sneak downstairs to the basement and throw it up so I stopped giving it to them. Plus their mouths smells fishy afterwards and they both love to give me kisses. They go straight for my lips. Lol
