Our Top Dog Dryers


As a shop owner, having a quality dog dryer is a must. You can find gazillions of supposedly the best dog dryers on the market. We are here to help you find not only the BEST but also the RIGHT dryer for your shop.

  1. K-9 III Dog Grooming Dryer 
  2. Double K Challengair Airmax Dog Dryer
  3. Metro Air Force Blaster

To make it easier for you, we are first detailing the most important characteristics to consider when purchasing a safe and efficient dog dryer.

How We Picked The Best Dog Dryers

The very first step in deciding on the best dog dryer for your shop is to identify how you’ll use it. Are you an all breed/coat-type grooming salon or a specialty single breed groomer?

Variable Speed — For the all around dog grooming salon, you'll want a variable speed dryer. Variable speed dryers allow you to adjust the airflow depending on the size, coat and area of the dog you are drying. You will have the lowest of speeds so you don't blow the Teacup Yorkie off the table and the highest to dry thickest of coats.

Aside from usage, we took into account the main features desired by Professional Groomers: 

Durability & Storability — Because you want it to last and still fit in the cabinet.  

High Air Flow without a heating element — Dog dryers must provide enough air pressure to blow the water from the dog’s coat. Dog dyers do not technically *dry dog hair*. Dogs have a sensitive skin, undercoat and hair, so too much heat would burn them. The motor itself will warm the air up enough for pet grooming use.

Quality Hose — The hose should withstand the air pressure and heat without cracking even with extensive use. 

Quietness — The top dryers have proprietary housings that help absorb sound as best as possible.

Types and Functions of Dog Dryers

A bit like shoes, there are several types of dog dryers available out there. And like shoes, different types of dryers are made with different functions in mind.

  • Handheld dog dryers are light, mobile and easy to store which makes them great for when you are on the road.
  • Cage Dryers can be used safely on pets while in the cage.
  • Forced-air dryers have a handheld nozzle, and the motor on the floor and are most commonly used for drying.
  • Stand Dryers are mounted on a stand so both hands are available for grooming.
  • Dryer Accessories can help your dryer become multi-functional. From mounting to cage dryer conversions and even hands free adapters.
