I like to get my paws muddy. And wet. Whenever it's wet outside - great - I like to bring all the park back inside with me.
I do not get a bath very often but when I do... the floof takes ages (or the dreaded hair dryer) to dry! So the big adventurer that I am was thrilled to hear about DogRobes, which my corgi furiends Gwen and Bertie were raving about! We met with the lovely Scottish founder, Margaret, in March at Crufts and she kindly gave me the gorgeous limited-edition tartan model so we could put it to the test and get in the mood for our UK Corgi Club Annual meet in Edinburgh .
What are Dogrobes?
A bath robe for dogs, literally! They're dog drying coats that are great for use on the go: after swimming, outdoor adventures, working, training... or after taking a bath.
They keep the muscles warm and are non-restrictive, allowing us to move freely while drying off much faster than with a quick towel rub and without the trauma of a hair dryer.
They also help shield surroundings (home, car, hotel...) from wet becoming too wet and/or muddy.
Le Size (and colour) Matter
DogRobes come in a wide range of colours and sizes. I wear a size S.

What are Dogrobes made of?
A towelling fabric (80% cotton, 20% polyester) that’s exclusive to the company and is durable, fast drying and snag-proof, featuring longer loops inside to absorb more moisture.
How do they work?
By absorbing moisture from the dog’s coat and trapping their body heat, drying them quickly and keeping the muscles warm whilst allowing free movement.
