Ruff & Tumble Dog Drying Coat
No winter coat rundown would be complete without including the bestselling Ruff & Tumble Dog Drying Coat. These coats are an absolute must-have for any dog owner and will, quite frankly, change your life! Leave the cleverly designed, double-layered towelling material to do all the hard work for you and never worry about dealing with another soggy towel again. The drying coats work by the first underlayer wicking away moisture from the fur and then your dog’s warm body push that moisture through to the outer layer of the coat - the dog dries first, then the coat dries itself from the inside out while it’s being worn, pretty neat eh?
