    Dogrobes have kindly sent Dennis a dog robe and….wait for it….. it’s purple, his favourite colour!

    What a lovely personal note

    After my squeals of excitement and Dennis’s bemusement at what was going on, I decided to try the dog robe on for size.

    The dogrobes team kindly told me how to measure Dennis correctly. They offer 9 different sizes ranging from a Yorkshire terrier up to a Newfoundland. I’ve always found it hard to get dog items in large so this is perfect.

    Below are the easy steps to get the right size:
    1) Grab a tape measure & measure around the girth of your dog (deepest part of the chest).
    2) Measure from your dog's collar to the base of his tail.

    You can also look at their size guide table:

    The robe is super easy to put on. You just pop your dogs head through the opening at the front and then tie the cords in the middle around the belly, which are already attached to the robe and made from the same material.

    I really like the fact that I don’t have to worry about any velcro catching on any hairs or that I have to be manipulating his legs in anyway. It also goes right down to the end of his body.

    It really is like wearing a robe!

    Excuse my neck fat - I do like my food!


    After making sure the robe fitted correctly we decided to take it out for a test. This wasn’t a hard task because the weather was cold, wet and muddy. So, we jumped in the car and headed to the woods.

    I love to stand in muddle puddles!

    I love taking Dennis for different walks and we often drive to different destinations. The worst part is cleaning him up afterwards and however much I try I always miss parts and he stays filthy and so does my car! Having a dog robe with me could solve both these solutions.

    Apart from giving his paws a wipe, I popped the dog robe straight on and let him back in the car. I must also add that the dog robe isn’t restricting in any way and he really wasn’t fussed about wearing it.

    Dennis doesn’t particularly get cold so for me this is was about drying and keeping the mud at bay. However, the robe would also be perfect for dogs that get cold easily after a walk or ones that like to swim in all weathers (Dennis is on a winter swim ban!)

    I'm ready to go home now mum!

    Once we arrive home I remove the dog robe and can see all of the mud collected inside. Perfect! As it’s so muddy I will pop it into the washing machine straight away.

    Thank you so much @Dogrobes for sending us this wonderful product. I will definitely be taking it with me on our journeys and look forward to using it in the summer when Dennis swims all of the time!

    @Dogrobes are offering dogforumuk members only 10% off your first (or next!) order with them until 31st March.

    Dennis was put straight into his dog robe after his bath today. It was just like he'd been at a spa! :p it worked a treat.

    How well did you feel it dried him @Josie? That's something we always struggle with is drying Jimmy after a bath. In the summer, we take him for a long walk, and/or use a hairdryer, but he still feels damp deep in his coat for hours afterwards.

    It worked really well actually @arealhuman and we have the same problem with Dennis. I gave him a very quick rub down on top but then put it on straight away after because I wanted to test how well it worked. I kept it on for about an hour afterwards and he came out all fluffy. Still slightly damp but nowhere near like usual. It also saved me on dog towels as I usually get through about three trying to dry him as much as I can afterwards!

    I don't use it as a rain coat as it's not the right material. I will use it for when he's had a bath and when I've been somewhere muddy :)

    It slips over his head and reaches right to the end by the base of his tail and then there are two ties which tie around his belly. The ties pull the material together to help cover the belly.
