    I'm looking for a force air dryer for Logan. He's a smooth collie so he has a double coat, but it's short - shorter and thinner than a GSD or Lab coat.

    I'm looking for a model that's around $100 or less that will still get the job done. It has to be on Amazon because I got a gift card for Amazon for Christmas and I'm getting $70 in credits for selling textbooks to them. Prime/SuperSaver/Free shipping preferred ;)

    Here are a couple I'm considering:

    http://www.amazon.com/B-Air-Bear-Po...?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1325017241&sr=1-2

    http://www.amazon.com/Metro-Vacuum-...?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1325017241&sr=1-3 (dog dryer) or http://www.amazon.com/Metro-Vacuum-...B24G/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1325017713&sr=8-1 (motorcycle dryer) - they appear to be the exact same to me, other than color and possibly a hose??

    I'm going to start by just saying that I've not personally used any of these dryers. Of the choices presented I'd use the B Air Bear - for the stronger motor- the included accessories and the better air intake with filter.

    I would say those other two based on specs may be the same item but who knows? The guts are really what matters.

    Also as a note-get yourself some ear protection. I use simple ear plugs now.

    I have the Metro vac, the first one linked. I believe it's Sizzle who also uses one for Revy? I like it and it works for all my dogs, should do the job on a smooth collie. Georgie HATES it but the other dogs don't mind it at all, including Miss Pepper.

    Definitely agree about the ear protection.

    Yeah, I know they're loud. We have a force air dryer at work and I use that on Logan sometimes, but I need my own.

    I'm reading all the complaints about people saying their animals are scared of it and going :wall: WTF DO YOU EXPECT IT TO SOUND LIKE?!

    Well it's certainly not most dogs favorite thing. I did have a few weird ones where they really loved it but yeah... they def weren't the norm

    I use a Metro QuickDraw.... I love it. :)

    I've seen them online for $80 or so, but usually they run in the $100 range.
     
  7. I'll echo the B-Air driers. I love them!
