Horse cooler for dogs

I'm looking to take Aspen swimming through the winter- trying to build her confidence in the water. Since I live in New England, I'd like to get her some type of moisture wicking coat. I'm thinking something similar to a cooler for horses. One place that I can take her swimming does have dryers but a different one doesn't. I basically want it as a back up if for some reason I can't dry her completely before we have to go outside.

@TheAdventureK9 not sure if you've used anything. I know you live in a warm climate but hike in cooler ones.

I have found some online but I'm really looking for specific ones that people have/have used/or know someone who has used.

Unfortunately I have never used anything. With Aayla's coat I don't even think that one would work on her. She holds in water close to her skin if she gets soaked.

It would be a good idea for Aspen since she has a shorter coat though!

I just don't let Aayla go swimming if I know that she wouldn't dry before night when we are hiking/backpacking. (Which can be difficult...) I've had to use some of my clothes once to try her because dumb dumb jumped off a rock into an alpine lake right before sunset when it was going to get below 30*. Now we bring a towel just for her...

You could try a literal horse cooler, mini or foal sized, and make some adjustments for Aspen.
