If a poodle's coat is very thin, very wispy, very loose curl and cut short(4-7 body & tk 2" or less) does it need to be hand dried? I've had 2 now with this description and the shop owner(2 shops) has "corrected" me for not blowing them out. Both said coat needed to be straightened. Neither dog had enough length to straighten. And with how thin the coat was, I don't see where it would have made any difference. One, white but 12 yrs old, body was 7 with 1" tk. Other a pale apricot with a 4 & a 1 1/2" tk. I've been grooming my whole life and I've always cage dried this type coat. I just don't see how fluff drying is going to work on a dog with no hair to fluff.
