A camouflage dog coat has been launched to coincide with the start of the grouse shooting season.

Maker Dogrobes said that rather than dogs blending in with their surroundings on the Glorious Twelfth, however, the coat is instead designed as an eye-catching accessory.

The towelling fabric garments are used to dry and clean dogs after they have been outside and the Moray-based firm said it has now sold products in every UK postcode area.

The firm says "the official start to the grouse shooting season is nearly here and working dogs can sport a glorious new look".

Margaret Reynolds, Dogrobes managing director, who took over the company five years ago, said the new design was inspired by Scotland’s hills and moors.

She said: “Modern camouflage has been used in clothing by some of the most famous designers, like Jean Paul Gaultier, but it was feedback from Scottish gamekeepers who already use Dogrobes for their working dogs that got us thinking about introducing a camouflage range.

“These have camouflage print on the outside, with our super-absorbent terry towelling material on the ties and inside, which goes next to the dog’s coat to dry it after outdoor swimming, training, bathing or working.”
