Your bestie is now blown dry. Dogs with heavy, long or very curly coats are first dried with the high veloicty dryer followed with hand drying on the grooming table. As a general rule we do not cage dry dogs. We find that the coat looks much better totally dried by hand. During the drying process the coat is
