Why did you volunteer to do this review?
have a black lab called Kia. She loves the water anywhere anytime but an
ordinary towel left in the car quite often smells, if you forget it. It
sounded like a great product to keep in the car for a quick wipe down when
it's raining and to use at home after a walk. Kia loves her agility so would
be ideal for those wet shows and training days, too.
I have four dogs including three Collies who all love trips to the beach,
swimming in rivers and running around in the rain so we go through a lot of
towels especially living in Scotland with all the rain here! I am always
looking for tips and products to make life better for my dogs and for me as
I live on a farm and have five dogs - four large and one small - which, as
you can imagine, that can be very wet and muddy at times.
I only have one big dog but also have a baby so anything that makes drying
him without using up all my doggie towels in our wet Scottish summer I
thought would be amazing. We do lots of beach and Loch walks as well as
agility so there would be no shortage of opportunities to put the towels to
What was your experience with this product?
What did you like about this product?
What surprised me when I received the Enki Pooch towels was how generously
sized the three towels included are.
I used one towel after a swim and a wet walk. We were both soaking when we
came in. I roughly dried her and it took so much water off her. She was only
damp when I was finished.
They are especially useful on wet days when you're travelling and don't want
to have mucky towels stinking up the car.
keep a basket full of towels at the back door that need regular washing -
and also I often forget to make sure we have towels when out, so I though
this might be ideal to keep in the car. The Enki Pooch towels took up less
space, absorbed more water and were very convenient to keep in the glove
Ann: I even
washed mine, and
it was fine.
Easy to use, worked very well. I have been able to use the same one twice
again with the same effect.
Super handy product.
towel is much stronger and absorbent than I had anticipated. You could
definitely reuse it several times.
towels look slim and flimsy but didnít rip or tear, even after drying four
dogs. They are particularly good for getting into the nooks and crannies of
paws and making sure they are really dry.
Mel: I thought
they were a reasonable size and didn't take up much space as in a pack.
Pooch towels can be recycled. They are excellent for the environment
Less wet dog smell was definitely a bonus.
think this product is an excellent idea, but for me, being on a farm and
having multi-dogs, it's not something I could use on a daily basis. It is ,
however, something I would keep in my truck for emergencies or even on
What could be improved?
Although the towels are very absorbent and can be wrung gout, I found that
with two long-coated dogs and three short-coated ones that I couldn't get
then dry enough so I had to use normal terry cloth towels to finish them
These are a great product but the size of the towels did make them a little
unwieldy for paw drying at times however, that's probably because we
normally use small conventional towels.
Perhaps they could come in a large size as well.
Even having a large dog, I must admit to using scissors to cut one of the
towels in half to make it even easier to fold up and pop in a coat pocket
before taking the dog out on a rainy day to visit friends. This didn't
impact on the performance on the material or how dry the dog was.
Just for me, maybe a nice smell.
Please comment on any instructions and/or packaging that come with this product.
Agreed. Yes, they were clear and easy to understand. Nicely presented.
What did you think of the design and quality of production?
is a good size and the towel is much stronger and moreabsorbent than I had
anticipated. You could definitely reuse one towel several times.
Lisa: Good design, durable and couldn't
fault the performance of them.
The towel size (60cm x 100cm)
is great considering how small it can fold up to.
Price: £4.99 + VAT per pack of three towels with
Discounts available on box quantities and wholesale.
8/10 I really
liked it. It was quite wet and had to hunt round for dry bit to keep going.
But it really did the job.
Lisa: 9/10. I wasn't sure whether this
would be a useful product when there are so many easy ways to dry the dog
conventionally, but I found these to be extremely useful for taking to
training, on walks or shoving in the bottom of the buggy when going to meet
Mel: 10/10. Excellent product
Fiona: 10/10 - it's a great idea - one
of those things you wonder why no one has thought of before!
Value for Money
I think it is
value for money. I wasnít sure if it would stand up to rough drying and it
did. I have reused the same one and it worked well.
Great value for money.
Mel: If I only had one or two dogs and lived
more urban then I would consider it more practical for daily use.
Would you recommend it
to family and friends?
Lisa: It's definitely a product I'd use
again and recommend.
Definitely. They are perfect for sticking in the glove compartment of your
car or if you are on holiday without access to a washing machine. Now you
donít have to take a huge pile of dog towels on holiday.
Yes, I would
recommend it to family and friends - and not just for use with dogs.
Mel: I would tell people about them as it is
always good to recommend new products that are good for pooches and the
environment. I like them!
