Soggy Doggy Doormat and Super Shammy Sweepstakes

February Freebies

Welcome to the
February Freebies Giveaway Hop
February 18-21

Every dog owner knows the drill…
The dog begs to go out in the pouring rain and then prances back inside all excited if you are lucky they will just wait for you to get a towel to dry them off. If you are not so lucky and have a dog like Indiana she will use any surface from a wall to freshly cleaned carpet to dry herself off depositing water, mud, dirt and those annoying paw prints all over everything. Even if you are lucky enough to catch them before they go running around the house doing the zoomies spraying water and dirt everywhere and have towels for each dog waiting by the door you know your dog is still wet after taking the time to dry them off.



Soggy Doggy Doormat and Shammy



With Spring rain right around the corner I thought I would introduce you to a product called Soggy Doggy they make doormats and shammy’s that are made specifically for drying your dog off after going out in the rain. Here is why they work they are make of super-absorbent, durable, microfiber chenille! Each of the “noodles” in the Soggy Doggy Doormat® and Soggy Doggy Super Shammy is made from millions of textured, ultra-fine strands woven together, so the surface area of these products is much greater than meets the eye! The expansive surface area is the secret to microfiber chenille’s tremendous absorbing power and super-fast drying!

The microfiber chenille blend allows the Soggy Doggy Doormats® and Super Shammys to soak up water and dirt like a sponge! The doormats absorb 5x more water than regular cotton doormats and the Super Shammy can hold up to 7x its weight in water! The material is exceptionally hard-working and goes right in the washer and dryer! But the chenille also makes it velvety-soft and gentle under delicate paws and bellies.

What I can tell you is that I opened up our box and put the doormat down on the floor Davinia went over to it right away to sniff around and check it out. I figured she would take a minute to see what it was all about and then ignore it. Instead she decided it was her new bed and curled up and fell fast asleep. She likes the mat so much she could sometimes even be found sleeping on it in one room while i was in another. That is very unusual for her but it was nice and soft and comfy so I totally understand why she wanted to sleep there. Sometimes Indiana would also join her on it to rest when I happened to be in the room. We didn’t really get much drying experience with it but it did rain one day when the girls came home with their belly’s soaking wet so we got to try out the Super Shammy and the doormat for what it was meant for to dry them off. it really worked well Indiana didn’t really mind me drying her off though she prefers to dry herself off so I told her to “dry” on the mat which she did and with a little help from me with the Super Shammy she was good to go in no time. Davinia who loves to get dried off and babied waited while i used the shammy on her. She takes longer to dry then Indiana I really don’t know why but it got her much drier then using a regular towel for the same amount of time.

I did have one other experience drying Indiana at least partially with the Super Shammy. Indiana who has a tendancy to eat anything not bolted down decided 30 minutes before I had a mover coming over to give us a quote to stick her head and her ears in poo. Her ears were covered and I knew getting it out with a paper towel was out of the question so I put her in the kitchen sink (she is a bit big for it) but I didn’t want to deal with a full bath and washed her ear. Once the nasty part was done and over I now had 15 minutes to get half her body dry and get her in the crate with Davinia. I grabbed the Super Shammy and dried her ear and the one side of her body. She was not a happy girl. Though I think even she realized she stunk and needed to get cleaned off. I got her ear mostly dry picked her up got the water off her belly and put her in the crate with Davinia. If I had tried to use a regular towel her ears would have been soaking wet still when she went into the crate but this way they were barely damp.

I think I probably had to be more careful drying Davinia and Indiana then someone would have to be if they were drying say a Labrador (or any dog with a short coat whether because they are short coated or they visit the groomer to get that way) not to tangle their long feathers and ear but for most dogs that really wouldn’t be an issue.
