Thumbs up Australian made by "Doggie Bag"

I bought a new Australian product the other week. And I must say it is brilliant. It is a very thick highly absorbent microfiber zip up bag. I lay it on my grooming table unzipped. After I finish washing Zali I wrap her in a towel and carry her to the grooming table (as I always do) then I place her on the unzipped bag and zip her up, removing the towel as I'm zipping!
Massage her for approx. 2 minutes in the bag then remove her from it and blow dry as normal.
This bag removes a lot of excess water, no mess all over the walls from water splatters after she shakes herself a few times!
There is plenty of room in these bags for the dog to move in or even lay down. They are also good for the beach, zip up a sandy & soggy Zali put her in the back of the car and drive home from the beach. No sand all over the back seat!
If its sandy, shake out, rinse and hang out on the line. (the bag! not the dog!)
If just bathing dog, hang bag out on clothes line to dry. I normally give it a rinse then hang it out to dry. I don't use fabric softners on it as this can apparently reduce absorbency on it, including normal towels!

One attachment shows Zali zipped up, the other shows just how her coat has absorbed excess moisture.

This looks fantastic Jenny and I can actually see how much water has been absorbed from Zali's coat too. I wouldn't mind one myself to be honest ..... thanks a lot for sharing. I wonder if there is a similar bag here in the UK and just as good ......... had to laugh at the 'hang the bag on the line - not the dog' lol
