    Kennel drying machine warning!

    The Today Show had a very sad piece on the potential danger of kennel drying machines. Please be aware, I never even thought about it before seeing this.

    Wow. I never knew that they had heated kennel dryers.

    I had always thought that there were just those big fans that they put on the dog in a metal crate.

    So sad.

    It's a tool- just like any other tool it can be used correctly and be fine, or incorrectly and do damage.

    Poor dog.

    This is why the dryers we use don't have heaters. They just blow room temp air on the dog, because the heated dryers just get way too hot too fast. Although, even heated dryers are perfectly safe as long as the groomers are PAYING ATTENTION.
    Do what is best for your animal, not what is best for yourself.

    I'm really shocked that someone would put the temp to 100 degrees for 30 mins!! We don't have such a thing in our shop. We force dry with a hand held dryer and place them in a cage with warm air that just helps to dry the head. They are never left unmonitored.

    Sorry...I just had another thought. How can you possibly blow out an undercoat with such a dryer. My thought...you can't.

    We don't use the force dryers just too noisy I am partially deaf in one ear from years of listening to those things we just brush in the tub while the dog is wet and soapy the hair comes out great and we don't do many double coated big jobs..

    But I am shocked aswell that someone would leave a dog in there that long and with that heat can you say brainless we have cold air dryers

    You wouldn't believe how many Vet clinics that have boarding facilities use these upon bath day. I caught many a dog being dried on high heat due to the kennel help trying to get done quickly.Good post Laurie.
