For a long time we used to keep a big towel next to the door to dry our dogs off every time they came in. It wasn’t that big of a deal as we were already wiping their feet but you never can quite get them all the way dry and they end up smelling like a big stinky dog. We also had one dog that just refused to go out when it was raining and would end up peeing on the floor. Once we bought our first waterproof dog jackets though these problems went away.
If you have never used waterproof dog jackets you owe it to yourself to try at least once. They are very inexpensive for the troubles they save. Below are some examples of two different types that dog jackets. The first are insulated for fall and winter, the second are just waterproof for spring and summer.
