The Evolution of Wet Coats
Wet coats have
been used in the Dog show world for years, used in conformation
performance dog showing; Years ago wet coats were made of terry cloth
which was very messy as the coats would drip water every where and if
left on a
dog any amount of time would become like a steam bath between
the dog and coat.
In 1995 designer Sandy Teague discovered synthetic
chamois that were sold
at the dog shows; And their effectiveness in cooling a dog.
The original synthetic
chamois wet coats known as
Kool Koats were designed by Sandy and have
used for years in the dog show world.
The way the synthetic material works is as it
into the dogs coat the slower evaporation time actually
cools the dog more than the old terry cloth coats.
We are always trying to
improve our products and over the past year switched
to pva material that
seems to work better and is lighter weight than the synthetic.
We also discovered covering the
material with a light weight cotton fabric the
coats stay cooler longer as the fabric
slows the evaporation of the moisture.
This process is patent pending.
