I have a two speed blaster and used it on the show coat of a toy poodle - 18 months old. I found it really good but still finished off with a warm air dryer. I don't use it so much since I cut the show coat off as the dogs didn't really like it - blaster lives up to its name. Inca has an extremely thick, curly coat now and it will blast it straight. I use it when I'm planning a major clip and/or quick leg tidy up.
