Today was the first time that Alfie has worn his new Equafleece coat. What a life saver!! Went this morning for Alfie's play time in the park, which is like a mud bog, with only four paws, tail, and head to get muddy as he chased and played rough and tumble. End result - time spent cleaning Alfie when he got home around 3 mins. Time spent cleaning Equafleece about 3 mins (mud just fell off). Several people asked about this coat in the park as well - while all their dogs were looking like they had been through some manure heap my Alfie was relatively clean!! Thank you Equafleece - money well spent. Hurrah!!!!
