The joys of having a dog are endless: they are available for hugs all day long, they’re always happy to see you and they get us out of the house and moving.

One side effect of having a dog that is less joyful though is wet carpets and muddy floors after you bring them back from a swim or a rainy jaunt in the park.

When this happens you have no choice but to get down on your hands and knees and wipe down their coats with towels (preferably old), but not only does this take a long time, it’s also not great for our backs or knees.

Plus, let’s face it, sometimes it feels like a miracle to just get them to stay still for long enough to do so.

Enter, these clever drying dog coats from Ruff & Tumble, which you can wrap around your dog like a canine dressing gown and leave them to dry by themselves.

In a range of colours and styles, these high-quality double-thick cotton towels can be attached using velcro fastenings and will help eliminate odour and damp.

The coats come in a range of colours and shapes, and each are available to suit the size of your four-legged-friend - just use the sizing chart on the website.

Pet owners are, understandably, pretty ecstatic about the product.

One wrote: “Wish I’d bought this coat years ago! Dries my boy perfectly on these wet days. Would recommend.”

While another commented: “Works well, looks cute, is easy to get on and off and the dog didn’t mind it at all.”

Seeing as they haven’t bred a dog with self-drying fur yet, this is the next best thing!
