just looking at these as winter coming up, and they look good for wet muddy walks and post swim..
anyone got one? or know any good alternatives?August 25, 2010 at 11:03 pm #74188IzzieMember
a friend of mine has them, she rates them highly, I use towelling coats for after baths/wet walks that are made for rescue fundraisingAugust 26, 2010 at 7:25 am #74189Lisa33Member
I have just started making Blu a fleecie jacket for when he has been on the shoot, it sucks the water from them and keeps it away from his skin and keeps him warm once he has cooled down in the truck. It cost me less then a tenner to make! ;DAugust 26, 2010 at 11:38 am #74190SweetypyeMember
My dogs do not wear clothes out on walks, however post swim or if they have been working in the cold/rain I will put on their dog jumpers to maintain muscle and joint health. I have had them for nearly 5 years now and think they are EXCELLENT value for money, easy to put on and take off, no fastenings and the dogs appear to like them too. Easy to wash and dry.August 26, 2010 at 1:02 pm #74191GracieMember
The equafleece look good to, the jumpers seem better with no straps and less muddy belly for in the car.
Lisa what material have you used?
Thanks Izzie, I towelling can get heavy tho.
so post walk do you dry them off and put them on or just stick them on??August 27, 2010 at 9:14 am #74192Lisa33Member
I have used a microfibre fleece, similar to the equa fleeces. It wicks the moisture away from the skin. My sewing machine has buggered up at the moment so I can’t finish it! Typical when I could really do with it now!! ::)
It depends on how wet they are, I normally give them a quick dry off and then put them on before they get in the truck.September 1, 2010 at 7:44 pm #74193*Nick*Member
Gracie, I’ve seen similar to that over here, just can’t remember where at the moment. More like a poncho than anything else, very easy to put on and the dogs seem to like it. It gets pretty cold over here so a blanket or something like that is essential after an hour or two in sub zero temps. Especially when the ice and snow start to melt in the car :canadian:
Have also seen similar to the equafleece, the jumpers and polo designs look really sharp .
