About Drying the Coat Type
The short coat type is the easiest of all coat types to dry due to the length of coat. A towel drying method can be used first to remove excessive water and shedding coat. In fact, most dogs with the short coat type can be easily towel dried and then placed in a kennel dryer to remove all dampness from the skin and coat. Basically the same procedure is utilized whether you are creating a show or a pet trim. Another option is to utilize the high velocity dryer after towel drying to remove excessive water and shedding coat, but typically this is not necessary due to the length and density of this coat type.
