Using a Warm Towel After a Dog Bath

I have a Rat Terrier, which is a medium sized dog (about 17 lbs). When I give him a bath, I give him a bath in our laundry tub. While he is in the laundry tub, I heat up a bath sheet in my dryer. I have sewn the top and one side so that it looks a little like a pillow case.


When the dog's bath is finished, I take the bath sheet out of the dryer and wrap the dog in it. I snuggle him and hug him, while I'm drying him. This helps from him shaking and getting water all over, it works. Wouldn't you like a nice warm towel when you come out of the shower? Just imagine how he likes it? Not sure who enjoys this warm towel more, the dog or myself.

Though a nice thought, using the dryer for just one article is not a great use of electricity. If the bath was timed along with wash day, then of course it would make sense.

I wouldn't worry about electricity, it doesn't take that much to warm a towel up, & I imagine a little dog like that get's pretty cold after his bath! I usually wash my dogs bed before I give her a bath. When it's almost dry, I haul her into the bathroom. When she's done & dried off, I get the bedding out of the dryer & put it in her crate so she has a nice clean,warm bed to curl up into!

I have 3 little Morkies. I don't use the dryer to warm the towel. I use the microwave. A big towel for 40 seconds in the microwave gives a nice warm towel. My Morkies love it!
