View Full Version : Drying Coats??

27th December 2007, 02:01 PM
Ellie is now 13 months old, and her fur is getting very thick and wavy.
She was spayed at 9months old. She doesnt mind me drying her with a hairdryer, but it takes a long time....My question is...has anyone used the mesh drying coats?? They help to keep the fur flat while it is drying... I have been looking at some online, and was wondering if I should send for one.....

i have sent you a PM to contact a cavalier owner who makes the best drying coats ever :)

Ditto to Inca, I have one for Cruz and it really does make the fur lie down nicely - I didn't dry him with the dryer, just let him dry naturally in it.

This is the after shot!!

Oh post the link! I know the person you are talking about but don't have the link to hand and maybe some others would like to order. I decided today that I NEED drying coats! :lol: I washed three of the dogs over the past three days -- only Lucy left to go -- but drying does take ages and Jaspar and Lily always end up fluffybutts. :sl*p:

Yes, please do post the link - I need to get one for Amber!!!!!

This is the link - the website doesn't seem to be working properly at the moment for me anyway.

I also have a cool mat from the same lady, which is a big help for car travel esp in the summer {and esp for the Syringo dogs, who tend to always be too hot}. They make a cool coat too, which doesn't actually wet the coat underneath.

PS I don't pull the ears through, I actually use the neck part so that it looks like a polo neck - loosen it by cutting slightly if necessary. Otherwise the ears tend to stick out to the side and look like they've been in bunches!!

If Ellie looks like Cruz, I will be very happy :).....her coat is long and thick like his :)

Just had a look seem great. What size for the cavs? Cocker.

27th December 2007, 07:19 PM
Its size 1 for cav's and Ellie measures 23in

Anyone know a good place in the US? I bet it would cost a fortune to have it shipped from the UK

27th December 2007, 08:03 PM
:xfngr: Have ordered mine......lets hope Ellie will wear it :rolleyes:

27th December 2007, 08:58 PM
I am interested also if there is somewhere to get them in the US or how much it would cost to ship.

Lucky's nickname after every bath is: Fluffybutt! :lol:

ahh sorry Inca, thought that was the ones you meant.

i didn't know about the silk ones - they sound even better!!

27th December 2007, 10:35 PM
These have been recommended by many US breeders (and are from the US): http://www.bathcoats.com/PageDogAp2.asp

OMG ... I am laughing at the Pee Coats, because my sister was just sayign we need to make something like that for Lucky.

I guess we weren't the only ones with that idea.

Lucky is always peeing on himself and what a mess to clean up ... I might have to buy him a Pee Coat too ... http://www.bathcoats.com/PageDogAp4.asp

Thanks! I was wondering about this also! Bailey's fur gets crazy when we dry him.

28th December 2007, 12:52 AM
Oh and she sells P-Jackets too, took me a second to work out what these were for!! I'm sure Cathryn is rolling her eyes at me as this is a problem I have with Dylan. It's to stop a boy peeing on his front legs.

they are much better than any of the links posted on this thread and are made here in the UK
the top is really nice material it does vary and under is silk that keeps the coat flat and tie up in the middle on the top so the dog can't chew it undone i got fed up with net coats they tear too easily and are a lot more expansive than these

sorry just to add i used the only coat i could find to take this pic LOL its a bit small for sophie ....and was to lazy to go upstairs :(

28th December 2007, 09:45 AM
Inca, I didnt end up ordering from that site, because when I phoned, the lady told me, those jackets were more for wearing for about 12 hours at a time, and not for when you bath the dog and want to straighten the hair. Although she did say the fur was in super silky condition when you took them off, they are also used a lot before showing dogs, to flatten the coat and make it shine.... Also I thought Ellie might get to warm wearing these, as her coat is very thick..... I ordered mine from http://www.verto.co.uk/drystore/catalog/index.php these are the net ones, just to be used when you have bathed your dog..... Sorry about the confusion :confused: if I have caused any.

28th December 2007, 12:50 PM
just spoke to her ...................i think what she ment its better to let them sleep in them no these coats are not designed to be used in very wet coats like the net ones

oh well never mind these are best when the coat is partly dry then the coat dries flat the results IMPO are much better
