Force dryers are the best!
Seriously, if I wasn't a groomer with 24/7 access to a shop, I would absolutely go out and buy a force dryer. Even an inexpensive Metro orange canister dryer will get the job done.
My girls are shown, so they're bathed frequently for dog shows. They just don't shed much at all, unless they are blowing coat before going into heat. Then it's a nightmare.
I will admit that I never brush my dogs. Never. If they are blowing coat, I'll bathe them and then blow dry with the force dryer. As Freestep says, the coat will come flying off in sheets.
