I had to laugh when I saw this post. During winter cougar had the worst static all over him. Taking his rugs off was like dancing on power lines lol you could hear all the pops and cracks and by crikeys you could feel them as well
What helped for me? Cowboy magic body shine spray stuff. I would spray him all over with that (including tail) and then put the rugs on. It cut the static a fair bit remarkably. But still not completely.
Whats the deal with the dryer sheets? How do they help? I've never heard of that before
