The Freckles Original Dog Drying Coat is our entry level drying coat. It has a classic shape and has a velcro fastening at the neck and waist strap for quick removal and easy adjustment.
Freckles Drying Coats are fantastic for warming and drying you dog. They are great for putting on your dog after a walk in the rain, a swim in the sea or after a bath. The Drying Coats fit snug on your dog for maximum contact with the fur ensuring that moisture is absorbed quickly.
The Drying Coats are made with a polar fleece outer and a lined with high quality black microfibre towelling made in Italy. Microfibre towelling is faster drying and has much greater absorption properties than standard towelling so your dog dries in extra quick time! The coat fits snug on your dog allowing the microfibre to make direct contact with the fur and so ensuring that any moisture is absorbed quickly.
As the water is absorbed by the microfibre towelling, and with the aid of the fleece outer layer, your dog will begin to warm up. As your dog warms up the water absorbed by the towelling will evaporate away and so if the coat is left on long enough the result is a dry dog and a dry coat. The coat drys the dog and the dog drys the coat!
Why Microfibre Towelling?
Microfibre towelling is much more absorbant than cotton towelling which most other drying coats are made of. In fact microfibre towelling absorbs up to 8 times more water than standard cotton towelling which means that your dog dries much quicker.
Microfibre is made from fibres which are finer than 1/100 of a human hair. The wedge shaped cross section threads have more than 40 times surface area compared to normal towelling fibres and so these can hold more water and also trap dust and dirt more effectively than traditional towelling. Microfibre also does not pull or snag and so retains it’s quality longer than cotton towels.

MEASURING YOUR DOG
Measure your dog when then are standing upright. Do not try and measure them when they are sitting or lying down as you may get an incorrect measurement. We recommend that you use a soft tape when measuring your dog.
For Made to Measure coats please provide exact measurements as tolerances are allowed when making the coat to allow for a comfortable fit.
Measure from the base of the dog’s neck to the top of the tail (or longer should you prefer). Make sure that your dog is standing squarely, with head up. Do not take the measurement from the collar as on some breeds this may sit higher up your dog’s neck.
Measure around your dog’s middle, halfway between the front and back legs, as this is where the strap will fasten.
If your dog has a particularly deep chest please feel free to use the Additional Information box to provide chest and waist measurements (see below for details).
Neck Size (C)
Measure the circumference of the neck at its widest part. Please note that a 10% allowance will be added to the neck measurement of Made to Measure coats to allow room for the coat to be removed over the head.
Please use the Additional Information text box to provide any further information that you may feel to be useful. For example if your dog is particularly deep chested you may wish to provide the chest and waist measurement too, or if you have a broad dog you may wish to provide the breast measurement.
Please note that the breed guide is a suggestion only and we would always recommend measuring your dog to ensure that the coat you purchase is a good fit. There is a small degree of adjustment in the girth of coats as they fasten with velcro or an adjustable webbing strap. Therefore if your dog’s measurements are only a few centimetres out from the girth stated above a standard size coat should be suitable.
We also make Made to Measure coats and the price of the coats are based on the length of the coat.
