The worst thing about taking your pup for a walk in the winter is getting home and they’re all damp and covered in mud.
But one company has created a special dryer for your dog – and we can’t believe nobody thought of it before.
The Puff-N-Fluff is a huge coat that fastens with Velcro and features an attachment for your hair dryer. The warm air gets trapped within the coat, drying more than one area of your dog at a time.
It comes in four sizes: an extra small, which costs £26.62, a small, priced at £30.42, a medium for £34.23 and a large for £49.46.
According to the company, it’s more time effective than using a hair dryer alone.
The coat aims to relieve the anxiety associated with using hair dryers on animals – and apparently also reduces the ‘wet dog’ smell.
It features four elasticated holes for your dog’s legs, and the sides are fixed with Velcro to be fastened.
The company says ‘virtually any blow dryer’ can be attached, with the length of the drying process depending on the size of your dog and the thickness of its fur.
However, you do have to be careful with the coat – as your hair dryer needs to be on a low temperature. Never use it on a high heat, as the coat is constructed so that the air can flow out through the neck, tail and legs.
If you have a small dog, cutting up a lamb roll into tiny pieces is a cost-effective way to make healthy, bite-sized training treats. A 1-pound roll costs $6.98. Cut it up into the desired size, store most of it in a ziplock bag in the freezer, and leave the rest on the counter for immediate use.
The description adds: ‘Please monitor your dog for any signs of overheating such as heavy panting or tongue hanging out of the mouth.
‘Remove the Puff-N-Fluff if you see any signs of overheating.’
So far, the coat has had amazing reviews – with one person calling it the ‘best invention ever’.
Someone else says their Yorkie absolutely loves it.
They said: ‘The first time we used it, he seemed unsure of it.
‘But on the second time, as soon as he saw it laid out on the floor, he jumped on it and sat there, waiting to be fluffed!
‘It takes less than 10 minutes to dry him, which is great because I never dried his hair in the past and it would take two towels to remove excess water from him, plus another hour for him to completely air dry.
‘On the most recent drying session, he even laid down, tucked in his legs into the bag, and almost fell asleep.
‘I put my hand inside the bag to kind of toss his hair around to make sure he gets dried evenly, and also so that I can monitor the heat.
‘If the bag gets a bit too hot, I just give him a blast of the cool air from the hair dryer. I’m a fan!’
If your dog’s acting funny, get out the umbrella! According to a Petside.com/Associated Press poll, 72% of dog owners believe their dog can detect when stormy weather is on the way.
