    I asked this on the grooming section but think maybe as there are professional groomers on there then they can't recommend one for a home situation, so I thought I'd ask on here.

    Poppy always goes to the groomers for her haircuts, about every 6 weeks. There's the odd occasion when I might have to wash her in between - rolled in poo or filthy from playing in the sand on the beach, etc. I've always used my hairdryer before but she doesn't like it, it doesn't have a cool setting and I don't have three hands.

    Speaking to my groomer today I asked what she would recommend and she said that I wouldn't need a blaster and I wouldn't need to spend a large amount of money, that I'd get by with the hairdryer sort that you can put on a stand.

    I've googled but as yet am only finding expensive grooming salon types on a stand. Anyone got any suggestions.

    Ta.

    Groomer said not to use a blaster, her coat doesn't need one but she does have to be brushed as she's dried as it straightens the coat.

    That looks like it might be OK, thanks. Reading the description it says 3 heat settings, 40, 70 and 90 degrees and a cool shot facility. I think I need to find out how low a heat is the 40 degrees. Poppy doesn't like my hairdryer and even though it's a travel one the low heat is quite warm and I need hubby to hold it a fair distance away - I need both hands, one to separate her coat as it needs brushing a small section at a time, and the other to use the brush.

    Even though I've googled there doesn't seem to be much to choose from unless you want a blaster or a professional dryer :(.
