Cage dryers are the leading cause of death in grooming salons, yet they are used on over 80% of dogs groomed nationwide. A cage dryer is an automatic coat dryer that hangs on the door of a cage and blows directly on a caged dog. More invasive are the “hot box” cage drying units that include plexiglass for the cage walls to prevent the blown air from escaping. Most dogs are extremely fearful of cage dryers, as it is very difficult for them to breathe. Lack of fresh air causes labored breathing and rapid heartbeat, which can lead to a heart attack. Cage dryers cause extreme anxiety, which develops into a lifelong fear of grooming.
P.S. I’ve never heard of those automatic dog washers, but I have heard horror stories regarding the cage dryers. I’ve found that attaching miniature fans to the cages are just as effective, and a lot safer.
