My dog doesn't like the noise of velcro, can you make your drying coats with a buckle instead?
Some dogs may initially not like the noise of velcro, but most dogs soon become accustomed to it. However, I can make you a drying coat with a webbing strap and plastic buckle instead should you prefer, for the same price as those with velcro straps.
Please note that as no stock is held for drying coats with buckle straps that your order will be a Made to Order item. The option for the buckle straps is also only available for the Tay, Ness and Gartmorn styles (ie it is not possible to provide this for the Lomond style).
If you do wish to order a drying coat with a buckle strap, please just order as normal on the website and either leave a note at checkout or drop me an email to let me know that you wish a buckle strap in lieu of velcro.
Do you supply to trade?
There are a number of hydrotherapy centres, groomers and independent pet stores that stock Freckles Drying Coats. If you are interested please email me at email@example.com to request a trade price list and for further information.
Can you an embroider a logo onto a drying coat?
Yes, there is however a £26 one off set-up fee to cover the cost of someone converting your logo into a stitching pattern for me. The cost of embroidery is then £9 per coat. You can find out about more HERE.
