I have the Double K Challengair and it has a high and low speed setting. I have the Extreme in blue Challengair™ EXTREME™ Dryer

It does have 2 speeds as advertised, but both are quite loud. That being said, I really like it. My husband jokes that he will use this instead of the leaf blower to clean the yard!

My B-Air Bear also has two settings, high and low. I use both. Before I had my stand dryer, I used the low setting for doing the ears and topknot.

I will be getting the K-9 II with heat whenever I have the money to buy a new force dryer. Can't justify it right now, though!

I was thinking about this one with the variable speed option:
Double K ChallengAir Airmax Dryers -- Pet Grooming Dryers | PetEdge.com
Challengair™ Airmax® Forced Air Dryer

or this one if I do another CC group buy--also variable speed:
Pet Grooming Dryers Used by Show Dog Professionals for over 30 years

or maybe this one, which is variable speed and has an on/off switch:
Laube Magnum Dryer Variable speed (3 year motor warranty) Includes hose, fluff & blast nozzles.

DECISIONS!

Well, I found this site: bestdogdryer.com
and they promote dog shammy dryers over there, but I have some feeling, that they overkilled it.. that site looks like "who ever types 'best dog dryer' to the google will get to our dog shammy dryer site" (I did..)
Therefore I'm not sure what to think about Dog Shammy dryers..

Anyone tried it?

I would highly recommend the CC variable mini/pup for what you need. They don't have a metal outside & so are vary quiet. I have had a Metro too slow, challenge air 2 speed so hot it melted the hose & I would get rid of my Dri Eaze as well but it is my 2 nd back up. My Eaze Dry 3 rocks but is more power then what you want. 2 thumbs up for the variable CC pup.

I'm totally late to this party, but I just came on here to see if anyone had used the Dog Shammy dryer! I took my standard to a local pet store that had one with two speeds and it was way to loud for my boy. He just hated it! He even hates a regular hair dryer on his face. I was hoping for a quiet, reasonably priced variable speed dryer. It's tough to justify $300+ for grooming one poodle in my house, but I guess if I compare it to $80 per groom... Unfortunately my DH doesn't see it that way since he figures I'm managing with a hair dryer at the moment.

If he's having trouble with this head being dryed try putting cotton buds in his ears and wrapping a towel around them (I use an absorber) It's usually the sound that bothers them.

I have a CC pup dryer. I love it and it is not loud. I have a toy but it probably has enough oomph for a standard.

I have the Airshammy that is made by the same company, without the variable speed. Would I buy it again?? No! I ended up buying the K9II with heat and wish I would have just spent the money from the start. The Airshammy is by the door to blow off feet when the grass is wet or sand from the beach.
