In Alfie’s eyes every walk should mean getting as muddy as possible, which is loads of fun for him… But for me? Sometimes I would prefer a clean spaniel. As an Alfie owner, I have all the products on the market ready to deal with the mud monster. I am yet to try a product which will prevent the mud splatter in the first place!
Let me introduce to you The Dog Trouser Company. You may have heard of them already! The Dog Trouser Company is new to the scene. Recently launching a new range of dog trousers, that are designed to keep the mud at bay… Let’s put that to the test!
The Dog Trouser Company created these trousers as the perfect pet accessory, that have been designed to keep dogs, cars and your home clean after muddy and wet walks. They were founded by Harriet Sinfield-Day, who owns her own dog hiking business. As a dog walker Harriet knew the frustration of having to clean a muddy dog… Even just a short walk up the road could result in a mud splattered dog.
“The Dog Trouser Company was born out of pure desperation to stop the hassles of the post walk clean-up overshadow the joy, bond and wellbeing gained from pet and person time. Our Dog Trousers are a practical accessory for busy people with active dogs, wishing to save time on post-walk grooming and car or household cleaning, and for the dog that shudders at the word bath!”
How do Dog Trousers work?
Dog Trousers are made from lightweight, breathable, waterproof, windproof, rip proof material. They do not restrict movement nor interfere with the call of nature, so your dog can still run, jump, play, paddle and go to the toilet. Each trouser ‘leg’ has a specialist Velcro strap for a snug fit around a dog’s ankles to stop the fabric riding up and the mud creeping in, and the over-body straps are soft and adjustable for your dog’s comfort. After each walk you simply pop the Dog Trousers in the washing machine at at 30 degrees.
Before & After
I think the best way to show you just how they work is with a before and after. Alfie and I headed off on our favourite woodland walk armed with our Dog Trousers. Alfie then sped off ready to put them to the test. As you can see from the photographs where the trousers covered he stays nice and clean… The little monkey still rubbed his face in the mud and his undercarriage did get plastered. I think if your dog wasn’t a mud addict like Alfie, they would prevent the splashes that occur from day to day walking.
The Dog Trousers are available in sizes XXS to L, and are priced £75.99 to £84.99 with £2 from every sale donated to 1 Dog at a Time Rescue UK, which cares for and re-homed abused Romanian street dogs.
