Please could I have recommendations for a good drying coat.
I have a 15kg springer who is more the size of a cocker, so advice re sizing would be helpful too!
Thank you.

I've found fleeces are the easiest and best drying rugs. I liked the equifleece jumper rugs a lot, but my labs started grumbling about having their legs put in the sleeves when they got older and arthiritic. I then went onto Ruff and Tumble rugs, which are extremely cute, but slip and get very heavy (and are slow to dry), so I'm not v impressed with them. I now use a basic fleece, which works well.

My dog has a dry bag which he’s more than happy to lie in whilst he dries .He also has equafleece jumpers and all in one suits that he wears when it’s cold and wet to reduce the mess . Equafleece will put zips in their jumpers etc if you have a dog that can’t get in them without .

My dog has one that Aurea links to. It works well and is easy to put on and take off. At nearly £30 though it cost more than my own dressing gown lol.

Dog robes or ruff and tumble for me!

Ruff and Tumble - works well when she comes in soaking wet from either being hosed down or exercised in the pissing rain.

I do like the look of rough and tumble. Especially the collar to dry wet spaniel ears!

Just got a rough & tumble at local dog show as it was pouring with rain so got sucked in to their stand. It is brilliant - quite setting aside the fact mimbledog looks adorable wrapped up as a blue towelling sausage. Highly recommended.

My dog has one from collared creatures. It’s great, dries him quickly.
