The coats, available in a range of sizes for Chihuahuas up to Newfoundlands, claim to dry the dogs in as little as 30 minutes. They are also set to be featured on the pride blog for Lorraine Kelly’s ITV show.

Dogrobes are sold by more than 70 stockists in the UK and are exported to Europe, the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, while still manufactured in Britain. The brand also supplies a number of high end hotels, such as the Fife Arms in Braemar.

Owner Margaret Reynolds said: “Dogs love them because they are so lightweight – even dogs who don’t like wearing jackets.”
