The Back on Track® Canine Rug 'Hugo' Mesh is a brilliant edition to the Back on Track® dog coat collection.
Last time we had these in stock, they didn't even make it onto our website they sold out so quicky!
The Back on Track® Canine Mesh 'Hugo' Rug is manufactured using the unique Welltex™ Fabric. During the Welltex™ fabric manufacturing process, polyester fibres and ceramic particles are fused together producing a fabric (polypropylene), that when heated by your dog's body heat during activity, radiates the heat generated back towards your dogs body as long-wave heat radiation, which is also known as long wave infrared radiation. Long wave infrared radiation increases blood circulation in the tissues which helps to relieve muscles tension and improve performance and can help with injury prevention while training and during competition.
The Hugo mesh dog rug coat has a inner lining of Welltex™ fabric and a thin outer mesh layer. This combination of fabrics not only make it a better fit, easily conforming to your dogs body shape, it also makes it fully breathable. So the Hugo mesh rug dog coat is ideal for use under other coats for extra warmth, during exercise sessions or even following rainy weather to speed up your dog's drying process.
The new Hugo dog coat is designed with shorter legged dogs in mind and is much easier to put on/take off than other Back on Track coats as both the girth strap (which is removeable) and front, chest closures are easily fastened with just one velcro fastening.
To keep your dog safe in the dark the Hugo mesh dog rug coat is equipped with a reflector on the front closure, as well as both sides of the girth strap, and is also equipped with fixed elastic leg straps.
Measuring your dog for a hugo mesh dog coat couldn't be easier: Lots of companies selling Back On Track products will tell you to measure from the 'withers'. We have found from years of selling these products it is best to measure the length of your dogs back along the spine from the natural collar line, to the base (start) of the tail. Then choose a size based on your measurement from the drop down boxes.

|M||44 cm||60 cm||61 cm|

Please read carefully, both the usage and washing instructions, before using this product.
All Back on Track products should be implemented gradually. To start with, use the product for a maximum of four hours a day for the first 2-3 days. The body then has the opportunity to familiarize itself with the fabric’s effects.
The reason we recommend starting with a maximum of 4 hours as that the increased blood circulation this fabric provides can manifest as swelling in dogs, which is actually a good indication that the ceramic fabric is taking effect. This initial swelling can occur anywhere from a few to several hours of use. If swelling does occur, you should cease using the product any more that day, and introducing it carefully and more gradually over the following days.
After the introductory period you should up the usage to a minimum of 8 hours per day, preferably more. After only an hour or so is often perceived a positive effect on tight muscles and stiff joints. More persistent problems may require several days, usually between 10-20, before the desired result is achieved.
Back on Track products can be machine washed at 30 C with normal detergent and air dry.
Note: Do not use bleach or fabric softener, or tumble dry. The product can be ironed at a maximum temperature of 50 C. The ceramic powder is fused in the fibres of polyester/polypropylene and does not separate when washed.
