Last Friday when I walked the 5th dog in a downpour I suddenly had the eureka moment about dog coats! as I wiped down this dog and took a good 10 minutes to get her decent to roam the house I thought how nice if she had a rain coat. It would have taken half the time.

My own Labs were drip dry and I used a “mud room” system of bringing them through the garage before they were allowed back in the house. As a dog walker we are on a schedule and the extra time spent drying dogs off could be cut down considerably. May be we need to add a selection of coats to our pet sitters  “kit” in the trunk. It does include towels,poo bags, leashes and front clip halters, why not dog coats?

I am now thinking that a dog coat is a tool, not a prissy outfit.
