    1/2" thin walled PVC (Sch20), 1/2" foam insulation, cover in white duct tape with black duct tape for contrast. Drool-resistant, soft and light enough to sit high in the cover.

    Ken,

    You know the real answer is it depends.....

    If yous got a fluffy dog, you needs the big fluffy roller,

    Poodles need one of them sculpted ones,

    Labs need the slick coated thin ones---- unless they are of the British or silver variety and then they proly need a specialty type.

    Flat Coats need the shaggy type.

    AWS and Tollers need them little bitty hot dog like ones,

    Doddles need them expensive special hypoalergenic type,

    but your chessies will go for whatever youse got handy in the garage.

    what type and brand of paint roller holds the least amount of drool?

    Maybe Evan can tell us what Rex would recommend.
    Also what type roller they are genetically predisposed to want to retrieve.

    Actually Evan is just finishing up his newest block buster "Smart Roller" soon to be available at stores near you.

    Trying to help out in the worst way regards
