Drying coats are a practical addition to your dogs range of accessories. Not only are they handy after bathtime, they are great to pack in the car when you’re on your travels. Perfect to dry and warm your dog if you get caught in the rain, or after a run on the beach.
Size is most important as the drying coat should fit close rather like a horse blanket. This allows the coat to soak up moisture and simultaneously keep wet pet’s warm. To gauge the size needed, measure your dog’s top-line from collar to the base of his tail and then cross reference with the size chart of the relevant drying coat. When choosing the right coat for you and your dog think about how it attaches. Various brands will have different designs and attachments. Some come with velcro fastenings, others tie on, so definitely think about how easy it will be to put it on your dog. Ruff & Tumble dog drying coats are some or our favourites as they are made from premium quality materials. Ruff & Tumble coats are durable and also easy to fit with velcro fastenings.
If you have trouble fitting a drying coat, or your dog just won’t wear one then try drying mitts. Made from the same materials as coats, you can simply rub your dog down with the absorbent mitts. Much easier than trying to wrestle with your pet to put on a drying coat!
