Costco sells microfiber towels by the bundle in the car battery area of the store. There are normally 10 or so towels in a bundle. Microfibers soak up lots of water, then you can wring most of the water out of them, so you don't have wet towels in the car ride home. They do a great job of really getting a lot of water out of a dog's coat. Then if you use them to wipe out the crate, they are small enough to handle and soak up a lot of water.

Kennel deck is 2 inches thick and should keep them out of the water. I am using dry-dek which is only one half inch. 2 inches is a lot of height to take up what size Ruff Tuff kennel are you using. Didn't think of moping up excess water will try that and spray with Lysol to kill bugs. Have not been toweling off dogs between runs, but do before going home. It's So Cal we haven't had a training day under 85 degrees from March to November.

I wouldn't spray Lysol where your dog is spending many hours. Just don't let water accumulate.
