Which dryer do you all use on your fluffs? I use a hairdryer on a luke warm setting but, I need to buy a better dryer as this is taking me ages doing it this way. Any advice would be appreciated. Jacqui

I also used MY hair dryer for 4 years, until I had 5 bichons.  I SO wish I had bought sooner!

I got this one:  https://www.petedge.com/zpetedgemain/catalog/productDetail.jsf?area=PMGT-06-03&sort=TA&wec-appid=PEDM_WEBSHOP_TR&page=72A214C22827430A9795247F1BF064D6&itemKey=005056A633791ED2B5866931D940AFB3&show=12&view=grid&wec-locale=en_US

The B-air Power Dryer I.  (NOT the II).  It has no heating element; the air warms as it rolls over the motor.  So I don't have to worry about drying out the skin.  You know, we bathe these bichons SO often, being as they are white.  It is a high velocity dryer, which cuts the drying time in half or more!

No matter what you do, if you get a professional grooming dryer, be sure to check the amp.  Our house voltage is usually 15, but the pro dryers are often made for business and are much higher.  All you will do is trip the circuit breaker (or blow a fuse).

Thanks Alison, it is a must have with having two of them to dry Stanleys coat is not as thick as Rubys but they do take a very long time to dry and, I always worry when using my hairdryer that its too warm for them even on a cool setting. Jacqui

I got the bear power I, too. I fee after a few years of use that I would like something a bit more powerful. After about 10 mins of use, it does heat up the air nicely. It's must better than a typical hairdryer.

I got the one that Barbara Bird recommended on her grooming blog:

http://groomblog.blogspot.com/
 
It's the Laube Magnum Force Dryer  and here is a video demonstration of her using it on a bichon.

I like it because it just blows most of the water right off without any heat.
