As lovable as dogs are (they're man's best friend, did you know?), they're constantly getting drenched in rain and muddy water, and then, ultimately drip on the carpet at home. Plus getting your pooch dry after a much-needed wash can be a very burdensome task.
As a dog owner, you may have thought to yourself once or twice, "If only there was a faster, more effective way of getting them dry..." Well, apparently there is.
One company has created an ingenious product for drying your dog. It's called the Puff-N-Fluff and it's basically a jacket for your canine with pipes attached. All you have to do is stick a hairdryer on one end of the pipe and the jacket should trap the warm air and dry the dog's fur.
According to huffingtonpost.co.uk, the product was invented by Marissa Streng when she was just nine years old and was inspired by her pug Mojo.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, given how unconventional the item is, it has garnered a mixed response from customers.
"We’ve only used it twice, but he’s really taken to it. The first time we used it, he seemed unsure of it," one consumer raved. "But on the second time, as soon as he saw it laid out on the floor, he jumped on it and sat there, waiting to be fluffed!"
"On the most recent drying session, he even laid down, tucked in his legs into the bag, and almost fell asleep," they continued. "I put my hand inside the bag to kind of toss his hair around to make sure he gets dried evenly, and also so that I can monitor the heat. If the bag gets a bit too hot, I just give him a blast of the cool air from the hairdryer. I’m a fan!"
Other customers, however, weren't as impressed. "Ripped within two days," another reviewer wrote. Another said: "Didn’t work at all on my goldendoodle, was a complete waste of time and energy to put it on him."
The Puff-N-Fluff comes in a range of sizes: extra small, small, medium and large. The price varies depending on the size you get and there’s a $30 shipping charge if you're purchasing it from outside the US.
