As someone who's been a pet owner for six years, I actually love the smell of wet dog. I don't necessarily love when our house smells like wet dog — that's actually kind of a stale, hot stench — I more enjoy when my dog is wet. It usually means she did something fun, like went on a walk in the rain or had a good bath. But my enjoyment fades fast because I know what comes next: I need to dry 60 pounds of Golden Retriever fluff.
Regardless of your dog's breed, everyone can agree that getting the dog to stand still while a loud dryer hovers around their fur is a harrowing task, which is where the Puff-N-Fluff Dog Dryer ($35-$65) comes in. Your dog steps into the leg openings, and it zips quickly, then you connect a blow-dryer to one of the hoses. It comes in four sizes, and because the air circulates inside of the jacket, they dry much faster.
Time to play in the rain!
