Just wanted to say - LOVE K9 dryers, use two of the bigger K9-3 'dual turbine' types
- on about an average of 12 dogs a day at work. ^_^
From Toy poodles to Newfoundlands, its the best.

We also have a K9 mini in case of a bind - like a pug owner only giving us 20 minutes and the big dryers are busy lol.

K9 was the preferred brand of my first boss, a master groomer, who groomed for 30+ years before retiring and passing on the torch. We have stuck with the brand ever after, and never had a problem.

At any rate, I very very very much recommend a little force dryer for anyone with a double-coated breed!
(Or a little white dog that loves dirt.. too many times to keep bringing him to work! Lol)

~Also - LOVE Petedge lol.

OMG! I bathed my two yesterday and my dryer hose started making the most horrible high pitched sound! I don't know if there's a small hole in the hose or what, but it was terrible. The noise would go away if I took off the nozzle and I could even put the nozzle back on while it was running. But if I tried to turn it on with the nozzle on it (and it didn't matter which nozzle I used) it would make that noise again. I tried gripping the place where the nozzle attaches to see if I could feel any air escaping and hold it closed, but it didn't stop the sound.

Just really annoying!

The Bear Air 2. It's not the drier itself, it's the hose making the noise. Kind of like those toy hoses kids swing around to make a whistling noise. It's pretty much making that affect through the hose and makes it unbareable to use. Don't know why it suddenly started doing it. I may go buy a new hose and see if that helps.

Found an only used a few times K9 II on ebay, I won it for $240 including shipping Smile Can't wait for it to get here!


Do you guys use grooming tables with yours, and if you do, what table do you recommend?

I have a grooming table I picked up from Craigslist for $20. Mine is very easy/basic and is just 2 legs that fold out from under like a table you rent for parties. Rubber matting on the top. I think it came from pet edge... Let me see if I can find it...

Looks kinda like that. I think mines the 36"

I have a grooming table too - a friend who shows had a spare 35" and I bought it from her for 35. It has adjustable legs - I'm telling you that is great because I am not very tall!

I got mine from Amazon. It's not the best, but it's light weight and tall. It's nice having a light weight table for shows and tall, cause I'm tall! lol. I think I got it for around $55.

Just wanted to follow up, I got my k9-ii from Sound Bay Newfs (highly recommended) on Friday, and spent 3 hours yesterday giving baths and blow drying my pups. I can honestly say my furballs have NEVER felt so fluffy and soft. Thanks for the help, everybody!!

okay so i used my k9II on Ares tonight after giving him a bath, is it suppoused to be blowing out cold air? He just wasn't getting dry at all. Is it because it's cold here in Wisconsin and I used it in my garage? Sad

Jennet, it does not use heat, but over time it tends to blow out warm air due to the heat from the motor. So yes, it's blowing whatever the surrounding air temperature is. A force dryer dries by forcing the water out of the coat, not by blow drying, so the water should have been blown out of the coat. How long did you dry him for and how dry was his coat afterward? Have you received any instruction or feedback on how to use the dryer? Holding the nozzle correctly at a proper angle will maximize efficiency and use of the dryer. Also be sure to keep the filter clean of debris and fur accumulation.

What do you guys think about these two:
http://www.amazon.com/XPOWER-Pet-Dryer-Vacuum-Speed/dp/B009U35J1I/ref=sr_1_23?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1363387314&sr=1-23&keywords=high+velocity+dryer

I might have to get one for Snoopy to get all the hair out after I bathe him. Brushes just aren't cutting it at this point. He's going to be the most expensive dog I've ever owned lol

I did it for 30 minutes and he was still very damp. I'll have to try again when it's warmer out because he was miserable and freezing. I'll try cleaning the filter also. I bought it used so she didn't give me the manual or anything. I'll have to see if I can find one online.

I use a Double K -

I love it - and it's not as heavy as the K9II, but just as powerful. I decided to get it after talking to a few people at the show.

Has anyone had or heard of this HV dryer? It has a higher air speed than the k9 mini and for only 99 u think its worth a shot.. Im tight on money right now but could really use a HV for koda since he is loosing puppy fur and he might not be allowes back to groomer cause he doesnt like the HV dryers so i figures id do it myself

Just wanted to pop in and thank everyone for their excitement over these. I purchased a B-Air II on Amazon a few months ago and it's been awesome.

Just a few of the things I've used it for:

-Blowing out the dogs' coats (aka shed control)
-Blowing them off after we get back in from the rain...towels just don't cut it
-Blasting dirt/pine needles/pollen/etc off my patio
-Blasting the same stuff out of the cheap shag carpet on my patio
-Dusting certain pieces of furniture before I vacuum
-Drying off the truck after a car wash


I recently dropped a big 2-liter bottle of soda and it spewed everywhere. I had soda droplets on every surface you could imagine, including on my treadmill display and in my fan. I wiped up the majority with towels, then used this thing to blast out every crack and crevice to ensure there was no sticky residue left over. Such a strange use. Laughing

It's great for dusting electronics too! Hubby uses my HV dryer to dust out his tower fans, keyboards, game consoles, drying cars, etc. They have so many uses.

I also use my dryer to blast out the mud from his paws when it's raining and all muddy out. It IS much faster and far more effective than using a towel.
