The wet dog shakePosted: October 18, 2012
Ah, those crazy engineers and scientists are at it again and this time with the humble wet dog shake. The Secret of the wet dog shake will hopefully help our designers create more efficient products in the future. The study has found the dog to be one of the most efficient ‘designs’ in allowing for the removal of excess water. In just 4 seconds (and that’s all it takes when you happen to be standing next to a wet dog) for a dog to shake off 70% of water from a wet coat.
