Ever have wet hands but there’s no towel handy? Or, sometimes, maybe you’re right next to a towel, but you’re craving the soft sensation of a dog’s fluffy coat to dry your hands with. Here are the top six dog breeds you can use to dry your hands!
The Maltese’s pristine white coat is one of the softest available, offering a highly pleasant hand-drying experience. Its long hair will make sure your hands are bone-dry! While the toy breed’s small stature might require you to bend down, the dog’s compact size perfectly mimics a hand towel. With this breed’s bright white color, you might want to make sure to scrub all the dirt off your hands before using it to dry yourself — we wouldn’t want to stain it!
The best thing about using a poodle to dry your hands is that its tight curls will trap any remaining dirt you didn’t wash off your hands. If you’re in a pinch and don’t have time to scrub thoroughly, the poodle is your best bet. It’ll sponge up all that grime in no time!
Drying your hands with a Pomeranian is the definition of luxury. Once you feel one of these, you’ll never be able to go back to a towel. Its fur is so absorbent that it puts to shame even the highest quality hand dryer. Plus, some Pomeranians even have darker coats, meaning you won’t need to worry about staining the pooch if you don’t scrub properly.
4. Australian Shepherd
One of the greatest benefits of the Australian shepherd is its height — now you won’t have to bend down as much when drying your hands on their beautiful, thick fur. Something to keep in mind is that these dogs shed, so you might end up with some clumps of fur sticking to your hands. But other than that, these dogs are perfect for using as a towel! The thickness of their fur will keep your hands so warm that you’ll never want to take them off. Plus, these natural herding dogs are used to doing tasks for humans, so they’ll be more than happy to help you dry your dripping hands!
5. Bearded Collie
In terms of hand-drying, the thing that sets the bearded collie apart is its beard. There’s truly nothing like drying your hands using the long, stringy beard of this intelligent companion. Other than the beard, its long hair is perfect for when your hands are extra wet! Make sure to utilize the flowing hair on its head and even its tail!
Okay, this dog was basically designed to dry your hands. It looks exactly like a mop, meaning it does an amazing job of soaking up all the moisture and dirt from your hands. Drying your hands is literally the Komondor’s entire purpose. Adorable.
