  • Tell me I made the Right Choice!

    Hello Fellow Groomers!

    I'm a home-based groomer, and I'm ready to upgrade from my no-name Ebay dryer. It lasted me about 1-1/2 years ($100) so I feel it served me well. I plan to keep it as a back-up.

    I just ordered the K9 Mini Dryer as a replacement. I don't have a lot of money, and groom maybe 10-15 dogs a week, so I thought this was versatile and durable enough to meet my needs. But I need to hear from my fellow groomers that I did make the right choice! I needed something that I could use in my shop as well as go portable. I don't use cage dryers, so there wasn't a need for something that would serve as a cage dryer too.

    Your feedback is appreciated!

    K9 makes good dryers, so it's probably just fine. I like to pick out dryers at the trade shows so I can compare them side by side. I know the II and III models are very powerful, don't know about the mini. As for a cage dryer, I much perfer fans. The little hv dryers are just too noisy for me and it's too easy for the dog to avoid the air by sitting in the corner.

      I've personally never used a K-9 dryer, but I've never heard anything negative about them. I know a lot of groomers save up $$ for quite some time to purchase one of the larger more powerful models, os I think you'll probably enjoy the new toy.

        I think you will be pretty happy. The only thing I wonder is if it will have enough power for you, but can guess it will be ok. I know a sneaky back door way of checking craigslist postings, so if it doesn't have enough power, PM me and I will pass it along. I can pretty much check the entire contry's listing by date.

          Your supposed to ask for advice BEFORE! LOL... Anyway I have a K9 III and I love it. I actually had to put it up on a shelf in the garage... can't use it in my mobile it's too many amps, and can't bear to part with it either!
