Question How do I get her hair fluffy!?

When I pick my standard, Riley, up from the groomer her hair is so fluffy. However, when I bathe and blow dry her in between groomings she never turns out quite so fluffy. I sometimes get a little fluff, but I never quite get the same results.

Is it something groomers put on her hair, a special brush, a certain blow dryer?

Groomers, what are your secrets?

haha- Thanks! Maybe I should just take her in for a bath every week or so! I had a feeling I just didn't have the right equipment!

You can get some decently priced pressure dryers for 125-150 ^^ I'd suggest looking up on it a big, since if you've never used one you'd be really shocked on how powerful they are.

They made these hoodies for pets that don't like the pressure dryers, which are being used on them.

It's all in the strength of the blower.

That video is incredible. It it the sound of the dryer that bothers them or the air?

Make sure that you get her totally dry with the blower, do not leave her damp or she will curl right back again.

It's normally the sound, kinda like how your pets run and hide from vacuums!

Any recommendations on a reasonably priced dryer?

I just use a regular hair dryer on my girl, she has about a minimum of about 1 inch on her, with more on legs/head/neck etc.
I just make sure it's not to hot, I move it around a bit, and brush with a slicker as it is drying. If she is naturally drying, I re-wet those areas, and dry brush them. I usually start on back area, move up to head and ears, down chest, tummy area/lower chest, then legs and tail somewhere at the start area.
I have no idea if this is done correctly lol, but is gets her fluffy and clean, not quite as good as Flyingduster's grooming lol (she's the pro-groomer of Saffy)
But it works in between!
