I have no problems using my CC Kool Dry Dryer. I've never blown a fuse, except occasionally my own when messing up my guy's TK with bad scissoring.

Heh.. Well his TK looks perfect in the photos.
Do you think the Kool Dry has enough power for a spoo or would you want more?

I don't use it at full speed, not even close, on my over-sized mpoo, he's 17.5" tall and 22 lbs. It would blow him off the table! I think it's powerful enough for a spoo. I like it a lot, and it's quiet! A number of spoo owners ordered it on the last CC group buy. You could scan the thread for the names of some who did and ask them.

There's also a CC product review thread. I plucked some posts from it which give a thumbs up to the Kool Dry for spoos.

Wow, thanks for a super-helpful post!

Maybe I was thinking I needed more power than I do. Im trying to dry a spoo, not a pack of Great Pyrenees.

I saw a post where someone said the K9-III sounded like the space shuttle taking off. That sure doesnt sound appealing.

I was trying to decide today, because PetEdge has a 10% off coupon that expires today. But they dont carry CC anyway, so I will probably hold off..

Thanks again for your helpful links.

I hope it quietly blows you away, and Panda likes it too. You'll have to report back when you've used it. Just curious, I got it in purple. I'm guessing you went for green, perhaps?

Thanks. Yeah, I got it in green. All the pics show it in a "knock you down" shade of electric green so I'll be curious to see if the color is really that intense.

Wondering if you've used your CC dryer yet, and if so how you like it?

Default Just a comment on the blow dryer

For you guys using the CC Kool Dry dryer on your spoos... if you get the 'water peeler' nozzle, you can really get the water out fast, and if you use it against the lay of the hair I think it fluffs really well too. The nozzle is available from cherrybrook (or probably any other CC retailer)... I think it is less than $15.
I also bought a second 'cone' and cut it down to about half the length... so I could use it with less force and help prevent whip knots on longer hair.

That video made me laugh. I thought dogs were supposed to be afraid of the vacuum -- apparently not!
