product information

Microfibre towelling lined dog drying coats are perfect not only for drying your dog but also for keeping them snug and warm when they get wet. Use them in the house after a bath, after a swim or a wet or cold walk, in the back of the car to keep dry and warm on the way home, between agility runs or any time you want your dog to feel warmer and drier. These are wonderfully versatile and useful items.

Microfibre towelling is faster drying and has much greater absorption properties than standard towelling so your dog dries in extra quick time.

No more messing about with bulky bath towels that your dog wriggles out of. No more chasing a wet dog around the house. No more cold, wet dogs shivering after their winter walk or after bath time. The coats are designed to fit snug on your dog allowing the microfibre to make direct contact with the fur and ensuring moisture is absorbed quickly.


  • After a winter walk
  • After a bath or swim
  • At home
  • In the car

The coats have a high quality black microfibre towelling inner for drying and a fleece outer in a great choice of colours and designs. They will dry your dog much better than a standard towel and will keep your dog warm too. Simply put it on the dog and the towelling will absorb the water. The fleece provides extra warmth and a nicer look and feel to the coat.

We all know that you can towel dry your dog but it doesn’t get them really dry. These coats can be used after your dog has a bath, when you come in from a wet walk, or if your dog has been for a swim in the river or sea.

The microfibre towelling absorbs water from your wet dog. As the dog dries, their body heat then also dries the towelling, so more often than not when you remove the coat from the dog both the dog and coat are dry!

Not just for bath time. They are great for keeping in the car. If you have been out with your dog on a fun but wet walk simply put the coat on them and let them get warm and dry all the way home. Or they can be used in the house and are especially good at preventing wet beds and sofas if your dog usually tries to get dry by rubbing against all your soft furnishings.

The drying coat has a Velcro fastening at the neck and at the waist. This allows the coat to be put on and removed quickly and easily. It also makes the coat fully adjustable so it will fit well and dry your dog better than ever before with no fuss or effort.


measuring guide

Please measure your dog to get the correct fit. The measuring guide below will help you take the correct measurements. Use a soft tape measure and measure your dog when they are standing up.

Length - Measure from the base of the dog's neck to the base of the tail (or longer should you prefer).

Girth - Measure around your dog's middle, approx halfway between the front and back legs.

Neck - If you are also taking a neck measurement, measure the circumference of the neck at the widest part.

 Size Length Girth
 X Small 35cm 30-38cm
 Small 40cm 38-45cm
 Medium 48cm 45-52cm
 Intermediate 54cm 50-58cm
 Large 60cm 55-65cm
 Large Wide * 60cm 75-85cm
 Large Deep * 65cm 65-75cm
 X Large 70cm 65-80cm
 XX Large 90cm 80-90cm

* Large Wide is suitable for stockier bodies while Large Deep is suitable for deep chests.

If none of the standard sizes are quite right for your dog, you can choose the bespoke option from the size drop-down box and enter your dog's measurements so a drying coat can be made especially for them.


Machine washable at 40 degrees (fasten the Velcro first so it doesn’t stick to the coat or other items of clothing). Do not use fabric conditioners or softeners as this can affect the absorbency properties. Tumble drying is not recommended and do not iron.

Which drying coat?

There are 3 designs to choose from. You are currently viewing the 'Original' drying coat.

OriginalThis design is the simplest - just like a standard coat shape which lies over the dog's back and fastens at the dog's front and middle.
UnderbellyThe Underbelly version goes over the dog's head. There is a front section that goes between the front legs, covering the chest and first half of the dog's torso, to the middle of the body where it fastens.
UltimateProviding the most coverage, the Ultimate is the same style as the Underbelly (goes on over the head and covers the chest to the middle of the torso) but with the addition of a cosy polo neck and a fastening at the rear to fully enclose your dog in the drying coat.

Returns or exchanges cannot be accepted for drying coats that have been used. If necessary please try the coat on dry when it arrives. Returns or exchanges cannot be accepted at all for bespoke drying coats (where you have supplied measurements and the coat has been made to fit your dog). Please measure carefully and state the measurements in centimetres (cm).

Excellent quality
Thursday, 13 December 2018  |  Brenda

I ordered coats for our 2 mixed breed dogs (mainly staffy plus assorted others). They arrived promptly and are an excellent quality. Lovely fit, the dogs love wearing them after cold, wet walks. These were my first purchases from D for Dog and there will be lots more.

Snuggly and does the job
Monday, 26 November 2018  |  Wendy

Ordered a made to measure coat for my lab. It really was lovely to open the parcel and actually think 'wow'. The coat is so well made and little things like he velcro fastenings are very substantial and made with a lab or similar dog in mind. excellent quality and would definitely recommend.

Drying Coat For Stanley The Choccy Lab!!
Friday, 9 February 2018  |  Geoff

Already have one of these for our older Black Lab Barney so decided to get one for our younger 8 month old lab. We ordered the large but found this not long enough for Stan even though he is a smaller lab, the extra large would have been more appropriate!! Otherwise a good product and certainly they do what they say on the can!!

A Fabulous Multi-Tasker
Sunday, 14 January 2018  |  Sonia

My dog Ned loves his doggie drying coat after a long wet and dirty walk. All I do is give him a rub down with a towel and put on the drying coat and he is as snug as a bug! BUT.. and the best bit for me is this Fabulous Multi-Tasking drying coat also saves my white walls in my kitchen from the dirty wet splatters Ned usually makes when coming back from said walks! No more having to wash down my walls - leaving Ned AND me also very happy with my new purchase!

Excellent drying aid
Thursday, 4 January 2018  |  Caroline

My dog loves his coat, especially in the car after a wet day out. As he is 11 years old he also wears it at night when temperatures are low.
