Pet drying towel

Despite having a pet dryer that I use exclusively for detailing (dog hates the noise) I am looking for some long life absorbent towels for dog drying.

Does anyone use a car drying towel or are there reasons for dedicated dog drying towel besides marketing gimmicks?

Cheers!

We have a drying coat for our Cockapoo which is fantastic as she's dry in around ten minutes when it's on.

Great for keeping them warm also while drying out after a wash or being in the sea etc...

It's one of these https://www.collaredcreatures.com/co...g-drying-coats

I use to work with the guy who's wife runs the company so I got a nice discount on it. We also bought one of the Harris Tweed collars from them when they were at the Chatsworth Country Show.

It's quality gear.

I have a couple of the kent drying towels plus old hand towels for my two. They both are constantly filthy so we always have towels going though the wash.

I wouldnt go mad with specific towels for them.

We use an Enjo dog towel that the wife bought as part of her quest for world domination! It works really well but is a tad expensive- but he is worth it

Cheers - assume you can only get them through a local re-seller?

When we had our Westie (lost him just before Christmas at 13+ years old) we had an Aqua type towel to dry him off but to be fair most of the time it was an old bath towel which did the job.

I just use old cotton towels dedicated for dog use unless I am washing and drying the rubber floormats.
It's surprising how many friends pass on their old towels which are almost like new.
I also have an old one or two in the back of the estate to drape over the bumper when the dog or bikes jump in. I find this is better than using the fold down flap of the boot liner because when it is folded away grit collects on it and promptly deposits itself on the bumper when folded down.

Old cotton towels seem to work best. Mine like to lay on them as well so bonus.

Consensus seems to be cotton over microfibre?

Correct?

I haven't tried microfibre because the cotton towels do a decent job and being a Yorkshireman I appreciate the fact that they cost nowt. After use on the dog they go to drying the mountain bikes.
