You went to all that trouble to bathe your dog, why slack off on drying the coat? Leaving your dog wet can cause skin irritations (especially in long haired pups) and the fur to become oily much faster. Also, thoroughly drying your dog’s coat leaves it softer with fewer tangles.

Best Dog Hair Dryers Winners

We chose our winners based on features, warranty length, price, customer reviews and performance.

Shelandy Pet Dryer Review

Shelandy Pet Hair Dryer#1

View on Amazon

We chose the Shelandy Pet Dryer as our top pick based on overwhelmingly positive customer reviews. A handful of buyers complained about the dryer breaking after a few months, but this was a common complaint about all the dryers we reviewed.

This dryer has a four-layer noise reduction device at the air inlets. It claims to be quieter than similar pet dryers, stating that it’s louder than a hand-dryer but softer than a vacuum.

The springy hose is 5.4 feet long and has four different nozzle attachments to help achieve the desired look for your pet. It has two adjustable airflow speeds (56mph and 135mph) as well as two heat settings. You can adjust the settings to the size of your pet to help regulate the speed and airflow.

Pros

Cons

  • Four attachments
  • Lightweight
  • Flexible hose
  • Works great on double coated breeds
  • 12-month warranty
  • None found

Free Paws Dryer Review

Free Paws Dyer#2

View on Amazon

The Free Paws dryer has two adjustable heat settings (96°F and 158°F) and two airflow speeds (56mph and 112mph). The hose shrinks down to 2.6 feet and can stretch up to 7.9 feet. It has a 2.5-foot power cord and comes with two filters and a steel comb.

It claims to dry the following breeds in these times:

  • Shih Tzu and Poodle: 5-10 minutes
  • Husky and Retriever: 15-20 minutes
  • Alaskan and Chow Chow: 20-35 minutes

Similar to our #1 pick, we couldn’t find any complaints aside from a few dryers breaking shortly after purchase. This dryer is also an excellent and affordable choice. We chose it as our #2 pick solely because it’s more expensive than the Shelandy dryer.

Pros

Cons

  • Four attachments
  • Lightweight
  • Shrinkable hose
  • Works great on double coated breeds
  • Lifetime warranty
  • None found

Flying Pig Dryer Review

Flying Pig Dryer#3

View on Amazon

This pet hair dryer has two temperature settings (81°F and 160°F) and adjustable air speed. It has a flexible 10-foot hose to make it easier to maneuver around your pet and a steel frame to protect it from damage.

Unfortunately, the Flying Pig dryer only has two attachments, which is why you don’t see it higher in our rankings. However, if it has the nozzles you need for your dog’s coat, this is a viable option.

Pros

Cons

  • Lightweight
  • 10-foot flexible hose
  • Works great on double coated breeds
  • 1-year warranty
  • Only two attachments

Kimberly received her Bachelor of Arts in multimedia journalism from Simpson College. She has been writing about dogs since 2014, covering subjects such as dog insurance, training, health, accessories and more. Her natural curiosity helps her research as she seeks the truth when learning about, comparing and personally testing canine products and services. With every piece she writes, her goal is to help our readers find the best fit for their unique needs.

Kimberly grew up in a family that loved Labrador Retrievers and remembers running and playing in the yard with them as a child. In 2017, she and her husband adopted their Coonhound mix, Sally, from a local shelter. Kimberly's research was put to good use since Sally faced some aggression issues with other dogs and needed some training to be an inside dog. She worked daily with Sally and sought help from professionals to help Sally become the happy pup she is today.

One of Kimberly's favorite pastimes is spoiling Sally with new toys, comfy beds and yummy treats (she even makes homemade goodies for her). She tries to purchase the safest products for Sally and knows that each canine has their own specific likes and dislikes. Kimberly is passionate about dogs, and knows the bond between humans and canines is like no other.
