    Default Sacking coats

    I know they make coats specifically for sacking handstrips/spaniels or anything you want a tight laying jacket. I've seen them years ago at Intergroom a vender had them. I have been using towels with clips but would really love a couple nice jackets to use as a lot of times I the clips comes off with the towel and it was a wasted effort.

    Anyone know a good place I could find some sacking coats?

    I donít have an answer to the product question. However, instead of clips, I have used diaper pins. Do they still make those? If so, they hold the towel really well and wonít poke the dog.

    I would still like to find a coat, but in the meantime I will get some diaper pins. I use to use cloth diapers for my son so I know they still make them. I'll check Amazon. Thanks a bunch!

    Yes to the diaper pins! This is what I use. You can also make your own sacking coats with old towels and a little Velcro, if you are handy with a needle and thread or sewing machine.

    I know someone that carries them. Just an individual but I could send you their contact info. They are pretty fancy, silk on the inside. Not great for drying but definitely for making the jacket lay tight and flat.

    Well I was taught by a groomer who once showed setters. I don't think there is a video on YouTube but not everyone calls it sacking. Maybe Tom will know. I know notes from the grooming table book mentions it but I don't know if there is much instruction.

    Yes, we use horse blanket safety pins and lay a towel from the withers to the croup, fold the towel if needed at the withers to shorten it. I pin it at the neck, then chest, behind the front legs at the deepest part of the chest, then the last pin at the tuck up.
