Testimonials – What Professional Pet Groomers are Saying About B-Air Pet Dryers!
Professional Pet Grooming Equipment
When the American Pet Products Association, of APPA, first released their National Pet Owners Survey in 1988, it showed that 56 percent of households in the United States owned at least one pet.
According to their most recent poll, 68 percent of the households in the United States now have at least one pet. Of those approximately 84.6 million households, 60.2 million of them have a dog, and 47.1 million have a cat.
As the number of households with pets in the United States has increased significantly in recent decades, so has the amount of money that Americans spend on their pets every year.
In fact, the amount that American pet owners spent nearly quadrupled between 1996 and 2016, increasing from $17 billion to $66.75 billion. In 2017, the American Pet Products Association predicts that Americans’ total annual expenditure on their pets will increase even more, up to an estimated $69.36 billion.
Pet owners’ willingness to spend more on their pets isn’t just great news for those lucky cats and dogs. It’s also great news for the professionals who provide pet services, including groomers.
In 2016, pet owners in the United States spent $5.76 billion on pet services like grooming and boarding. The APPA expects that number to reach $6.11 billion by the end of 2017. This increase in spending on pet services will continue for years if the APPA’s estimate is accurate.
While the outlook for the pet care and services sector is bright, the kind of equipment you use will influence the success you have as a pet groomer. Many pet owners look at the quality of the equipment used by a pet grooming establishment as an indicator of their professionalism and their quality of work.
Professional-grade grooming equipment will also allow you to deliver your clients and their four-legged friends the best results possible.
Professional Pet Dryers
Whether you’ve only been a groomer for a little while or you have years of experience in the industry, you know that pet dryers are among the most useful tools in your trade.
Commercial pet dryers are invaluable to most pet groomers, and professional pet dryers are also used in several other kinds of pet-related businesses.
Here are some of the other professionals and organizations that often use commercial dog dryers:
- Dog show trainers
- Veterinary hospitals and clinics
- Boarding facilities
- Pet rescues and animal shelters
While a pet dryer is generally associated with drying pets after a bath, when used by a professional groomer, a high-velocity dog dryer can yield many more benefits. Dog grooming dryers can make the grooming process safer and more enjoyable for both you and the dogs.
They can also be helpful when it comes to de-shedding animals like Siberian Huskies, Labrador Retrievers or mixed breeds that are prone to heavy shedding. A high-velocity dog grooming dryer can improve the appearance of a dog’s coat, too.
As far as many groomers are concerned, one of the biggest benefits that professional dog dryers provide is greater efficiency. As with many service-oriented businesses, more time typically means more money in the grooming industry.
Since drying a pet often consumes a significant amount of time, equipment that reduces this time can help you work more efficiently. High-velocity pet dryers made for dog grooming are just what you need to make the most of the time you spend at work.
Things to Consider When Buying a Professional Dog Dryer
Before you start looking for dog grooming dryers for sale, it is critical that you know what kinds are available for groomers and the purpose of each.
Safety, Fast Safe Drying
Many pet dryers for sale do not stand up to industry safety requirements, which are especially important for equipment that will get a lot of regular use.
Some types of animal dryers can be harmful to pets if not closely monitored, such as cage dryers or heated pet drying equipment.
Pets’ skin is sensitive, more sensitive than that of humans, and can be easily burned by heated drying equipment. Pets are also unable to effectively communicate any discomfort, which makes using heated equipment risky.
For this reason, heated grooming dryers or other heated dryers, like human hair dryers, are not the safest option for professional pet drying applications.
High-velocity pet dryers, sometimes also called forced air dryers, tend to be a safer and more effective option. These pet dryers do not use heat, but rather high-velocity airflow to dry the animal’s fur.
No matter what kind of pet dryer you decide to buy, it’s vital that you check its safety certifications before you use it with any animals.
As a general rule, you should look for professional pet dryers that are ETL and CE approved. Dog dryers with these designations meet or exceed strict safety standards.
There is much controversy surrounding the use of cage dryers. Many groomers use force dryers for every dog that comes into a salon.
Some use box fans, some still use heated cage dryers or drying compartments. Any dryer or piece of equipment not properly used may result in an injury or even death to a beloved pet. Care should be taken at all times when drying or grooming pets.
So how has B-Air Pet Dryers addressed the need for SAFETY, but still have fast drying results? We have eliminated the heating element and added more powerful airflow which utilizes ambient air to dry quickly and efficiently. Our Grizzly Cage Dryer is the mainstay for most grooming salons and all of the salons for Petco & PetSmart.
Think of it this way, you wash a load of laundry and have the option of drying in the hot dryer, which is not good for the fabric. Or you can put the laundry outside on a windy sunny day.
The result of the laundry from outside is soft fabric, fast drying, no static, smells fresh. You may say, but I get that result from the inside dryer also.
BUT, not without softener of some kind! If you don’t use a softener, the laundry from the dryer is full of static, dried out, too hot to touch, shrinks, and uses a lot of electric.
How do B-Air cage dryers relate to this situation. When you use a non-heat high airflow Grizzly, CUB, or Vent cage dryer, the pet your drying has no static, is fluffy, has a softer coat, dries quickly and safely.
Question, why would you use your hands and wrists to force dryer start to finish when you could be grooming a dog instead. B-Air Cage Dryers are the answer to natural safe drying saving you time and money.
Power and Airflow
In addition to a dryer’s safety rating, you’ll also want to consider how powerful and durable it is before you make a purchase. A forced air dryer’s power is measured in cubic feet per minute, or CFM, which measures the number of cubic feet of air the dryer releases every minute it’s in use.
You will also want to find quiet dog hair dryers, lower noise can help keep the animal you are working with calm and make communications at your business easier.
Look for pet dryers that have a high-quality casing that will help to keep noise to a minimum when you are using them as part of your grooming business.
Investing in high-quality, professional grade pet grooming equipment may carry more cost upfront, but it will last longer than alternatives that may not be up for the regular use that you and your business require.
Lower quality equipment will need to be replaced more frequently and will not likely be as effective as high-quality dog dryers for professional use.
Dry the Air
Lots of water is generated in a grooming salon or kennel. Humidity is high in these locations and cause many problems that can easily be avoided with dehumidifying the environment.
Some issues you may see with a humid environment would be rusted tools and equipment, low energy levels and irritability of workers, mold & mildew, wet dog odors, condensation on walls and windows, colds & flu spreading quickly, heat & moist air conditions, and dogs taking too long to dry. All of this can easily be eliminated with a commercial dehumidifier.
Air conditioning has some dehumidifying properties, but due to the placement of the air conditioners they are usually not effective. Humidity hangs low to ground, similar to driving through a fog with a clear sky above. You have to eliminate the ground moisture to control the environment.
B-Air Dryers is pleased to offer the perfect solution to this problem, the Vantage 1500 Professional Dehumidifier. For our busy salons and kennels, the Vantage is the answer, nothing smaller can do the job as effectively.
With an automatic drain, it needs no attention but to clean the filter when needed. Take charge of your environment, get the Vantage 1500. Add the Grizzly Cage Dryer for the most optimum drying advantage.
Pet drying times were tested using these products at an independent salon study with the following results: approximately 5+ minutes for small dogs, 8+ medium size dogs, to 20+ large dogs, and 30 for thick coated such as Collie or Newfoundland.
Quiet Force Dryer
The most common causes of hearing loss are noise and ageing. In most cases a hearing loss cannot be cured. Hearing loss is typically treated with hearing aids.
A common reason of hearing loss is exposure to noise. It can also be a consequence of living in a noisy world. This noise can come from our work or from voluntary exposure to noise.
OSHA Safety Standard requires a safe noise level at work to avoid hearing loss. OSHA states that any decibel level over 85 for a full work day can be result in hearing loss. Everything is noisy in a salon or kennel, dogs barking, loud dryers, clippers, and more.
Put it all together and you have a “hearing loss day”! Dryers are the worst offender of this issue with most of them screaming at 90+, sometimes 100+ decibels. Until now! B-Air is pleased to offer the quietest force dryer on the market at 62 decibels rating, the Bear Pro Series II.
There will always be a loud noise when the dryer hits the dogs skin surface on any dryer. However, with the ultra quiet motor and noise dampening technology in the Pro Series II renders it almost silent. Save your ears, get a Pro
How to Use a Dog Dryer
When it comes to drying or de-shedding a dog, it is smart to use a high-velocity dog grooming dryer to save time. Before you use one of these dryers to dry or de-shed a dog, you should make sure that they are comfortable with the equipment, especially if they have never been professionally groomed before.
As you add and remove attachments to your dryer, let the dog you are working on watch and smell the pieces. Talk to them a reassuring tone and let them know that everything is okay.
Once the dog realizes the dryer doesn’t pose a threat to their well-being, step back and use the dryer on yourself by running the hose up and down your legs and arms.
This will show the dog that you’re comfortable with the equipment. Then, approach the dog and start using your high-velocity pet dryer to blow around the dog’s feet.
Keep a close eye on how the dog reacts to the dryer. If they are nervous or agitated, take a step back and wait for them to regain composure.
Then, reintroduce the dryer and reassure them with a calm, confident voice. Hearing your voice and feeling the air from the dryer should help the dog relax and remain calm as you continue with the grooming process.
Whenever you use a forced air dryer on a dog, it is critical that you avoid blowing air into their mouth, nose, ears and eyes. Here are some additional tips for using a high-velocity pet dryer to dry a dog’s coat:
- A forced air dryer blasts water from a dog’s undercoat into the air. This means you’re going to get wet when you use a high-velocity dog dryer — so be sure you’re dressed appropriately.
- Start at the dog’s rear legs, then move the hose up to the posterior and tail.
- Massage the dog’s skin and run your fingers through the undercoat to free water.
- Use your dryer to blow against the grain of the hair from back to front.
- Use short motions, and make adjustments if you notice that the water’s being released in an undesired pattern.
- Be sure you blow from the skin out to prevent water from being blown back onto the dog’s skin.
- Always ensure the dryer’s hose is pressed against the dog’s skin as you’re drying.
- Finish drying the dog by drying the back of their head with your dryer and using a clean, soft towel to wipe their face dry.
As we mentioned earlier, using a forced air dryer can help you de-shed dogs efficiently, saving you valuable time. Here are some de-shedding tips you can use in your grooming practice:
- Apply a de-shedding conditioner after you wash the dog you’re working on with pet shampoo. Be sure you rinse out the conditioner before you start using your high-velocity pet dryer.
- Continue to use your forced air dryer until the dog is completely dry, paying special attention to the dog’s undercoat.
- When the dog’s coat is dry, you can start using short, back-and-forth motions close to their skin to de-shed, beginning at the rear and working up towards their head.
- After you have used the dryer to de-shed the dog’s body, brush them thoroughly to remove any remaining loose hair.
