Who’s been enjoying the rainy weather we’ve been having? No, us neither. It has made dog walking that bit more challenging. One of those challenges has been drying the dog after walks. Could the solution be a dog drying coat?
We’ve been towel drying our dog after every walk, but towels get soaked through pretty quickly and don’t get our beagle completely dry. So, we’ve been starting to take a look at dog drying coats. That’s when we spotted Ruff and Tumble‘s lovely looking coats.
Are dog drying coats a good idea?
Ruff and Tumble produce absorbent, double thickness soft cotton towelling dog drying coats, in a range of sizes. These doggy dressing gowns are clearly practical, but have the added bonus of coming in a really stylish design. Something us dog owners probably appreciate more than our pooches!
With this type of dog drying coat, all you have to do is pop it over the dog’s head, fasten the Velcro and watch the dog dry itself. This sounds a lot easier than chasing our dog around with a damp towel and trying to keep her still for long enough to rub her down.
The two layers of thick cotton towelling are designed to wick the moisture from the dog’s hair. They are also comfy and warm for the dogs to wear, which could be handy after a winter walk.
The ideal Christmas gift for dogs
With Christmas fast approaching, a Ruff and Tumble dog drying coat could make a good present for your dog. And will no doubt make your life so much easier at the same time!
The coats come in 16 sizes from XXXS to Giant Mountain Dog, and are priced from £26 to £64, so they’re pretty much suitable for every breed of dog. There are eight colours to choose from (as well as special limited edition colours), so they should suit the tastes of most owners too.
Ruff and Tumble also make handy Drying Mitts, great for drying off muddy paws without getting your hands and arms covered in muck. These can easily be hung up by your back door or stowed in the car. You can even get dog bed covers and sofa throws to help simplify life with your dog.
