The Right Way to Dry Dogs
Even if you purchase a hair dryer, if you do not understand the correct drying procedure, the drying time may become long and your pet may become overloaded. Here we will introduce the correct drying method and tips, so please use them as a reference for drying.
After shampooing, first carefully towel dry your pet
First, it is very important to wipe off the hair well with a towel and thoroughly dry it earlier using a hair dryer. Move the towel with awareness to reach the roots of the hairs, and make preparations to shorten the time you spend using the hair dryer. In particular, it is prudent to wipe the armpits, underarms, and internal thighs carefully with the towel, as these areas are unerect to wet and are not easily exposed to the airflow from the hair dryer.
The key is to dry the hair gradually from the center to the ends
When using a hair dryer on a dog, it is more efficient to dry out the dog by dividing the orbit into small sections, rather than evenly covering the dog’s stallion body. Keep applying air to the same sphere and go on to the next area when you are satisfied that the tail is dry all the way to the middle.
Another operative point is to “go from the center to the ends”. First, dry the back and stomach, which wrap up a large area, and then move on to the legs and tail. It is recommended that the front and ears be dried last, at a low temperature. In this way, you will not leave any hairs behind, prevent unpleasant smells, and transfer loose hairs.
How to Maintain the Dryer
To prolong the life of a dog dryer, maintenance after use is essential. After use, be sure to remove hair from the suction port with a toothbrush or similar tool. Especially with double-coated or long-haired dogs, hair can easily clog the dryer’s suction port, causing a burning smell and malfunction. Clogged hair in the suction port can reduce the power and efficiency of the dryer, so it is important to remove the hair each time it is clogged.
