If you don’t dry your dog's fur properly, the dog might develop skin diseases due to fungus. Most owners, however, feel pressured when washing their dog because it takes time and effort and they want to get finished quickly. A HUG Dryer makes drying your dog's fur after a bath more pleasant. In this design, a towel is attached to the dryer. The warm air comes through the holes in the towel and through the air pad. The dryer and your dog are kept separate and the dog is not frightened by the noise. You simply rub the dog’s fur to dry it, just like petting the dog.
