Oh I would just love to be able to dry my standards in 30 minutes. Can you help? I have the K911. I use it with the nozzle it came with. Do you use a nozzle or do you just use the hose without attachment? I do put the nozzle right up to the skin, but once the dryer heats up it is very hot to hold for any length on time in one place. Do you move the hose about on the legs and body while keeping it close to the skin...or do you hold it in one place until it is dry?

When I had the pups in Show Coat I did hold the hose (with nozzle) away from the skin as their fur was long and I did not want it to turn in on itself...but I did brush as I was drying. But now that they are in pet trims I would really love to cut down on the drying time. ANY hints for speeding up the process?

Thanks a lot.

Are you using the cone nozzle? Towel dry them, put a towel under them to stand on. I start at the butt and rear legs. Dry them all the way. I don't use a brush to be honest. It does get hot but you can hold the nozzle instead of the hose, not so hot.
Depending on the length of hair is how far away I hold the nozzle from the skin.

Hi Lilith Yes I use the cone nozzle. I usually do the back legs, then front legs, then rear of body...the mane and head. But it definitely takes me an hour or hour and 1/2. I worry that I am burning their skin when I hold the nozzle for too long in one place.

Thanks for the tips.

Just don't have the nozzle right against the skin.

The dogs that you groom in 30mins. do they have a full coat or a short coat? I have a metro air force but I bought it used and it didnt come with a attachment. Does that make that much of a difference?

I guess it doesn't take that long try dry but it takes that long to get straight as I can. I really need to get her into a clip..shes starting to look like cousin IT.

I don't get it, can anyone show a video of proper force drying? I have a non heated force dryer, but I'm really not sure how far to hold it from the dog and how long to stay in the exact spot. I have a weird habit of flicking my hand back and forth in small areas, didn't know you're supposed to stay in one spot for longer periods! lol!

Thanks for any help

Rebecca
