|Pet Protector Australia’s dog cooling coat is the simple way to keep your dog cool and comfortable even on a hot summer’s day. This cooling vest has been designed for the best fit and most effective cooling you can find. The special, super absorbent, evaporative material gives amazing cooling, indoors or out. Simply activate the jacket with ordinary tap water and let it work its magic.
This dog cool coat offers relief from the effects of heat in hot weather and during or after exercise.
Perfect for walks, travelling and activities. Can even be used indoors. Specially designed to keep your dog cool in situations where they are at risk of feeling hot or overheating.
Your dog will feel comfortable and cool. No heavy materials, chemicals or bulky gels – just a special lightweight absorbent mesh material activated by water. These cooling coats are soft, light, comfortable to wear and 100% safe. You will be amazed at how well they work.
Other cooling coats tend to be a standard jacket cut that lays over the dog’s back and fastens at the front and belly. Our coat is different. This cooling vest pops over your dog’s head for the perfect fit and an adjustable Velcro tummy strap secures it.
This clever design means that the vest covers your dog’s chest as well as their back, cooling more areas of your dog than other cool coat/jacket designs. It also makes it much less likely to slide sideways when in use.
Your dog will feel comfortably cooler, not cold or chilly but just right. The material is durable and won’t easily rip or tear. You can expect years of use and will soon wonder how you managed without it.
How do I use Pet Protector Australia’s Dog Cooling Coat?
Soak in water from the cold tap for a few minutes, until soaked through. Lightly squeeze out any excess water, place your dog’s head through the vest and secure with the Velcro straps. Top up with water whenever it starts to dry out.
How does it work?
Made from absorbent mesh fabric. The ability of the mesh to retain water makes it ideal for cooling products. The water held in the material slowly evaporates, drawing heat away from your dog’s body and reducing their temperature. The cooling effect lasts until the coat starts to dry out, which can be an hour or two on a very hot day and quite a few hours on a typical warm day. To reactivate simply soak in water again or poor some water over it.
When can I use it?
Use at home, on walks, travelling in the car, during activities such as Agility or Flyball, after exercise – any time you need to prevent a rise in temperature or lower your dog’s temperature.
It is best used as a preventative measure but can also be used to reduce a dog’s temperature if they are already feeling the effects of heat.
How will I know it is working?
Your dog will visibly pant less and will be able to enjoy walks and activities for longer and on warm days than they can without the cooling vest. It will feel cool to the touch. Touch it and see. Or put your hand under the coat and you will notice your dog feels noticeably cooler.
Can be worn outside or even indoors to cool your dog down.
If necessary, gently hand wash or machine wash at 30 degrees. Do not tumble dry.
Measuring and size guide
Please measure your dog to get the correct fit. The measuring guide below will help you take the correct measurements.
Use a soft tape measure and measure your dog when they are standing up.
Length – Measure from the dog’s neck to the base of the tail.
Girth – Measure around your dog’s middle, approx halfway between the front and back legs.
Neck – If you are also taking a neck measurement, measure the circumference of the neck at the widest part.
IMPORTANT: COATS ARE NOT DESIGNED TO BE WORN ALL DAY UNSUPERVISED. IF THE COATS DRY OUT AND ARE LEFT ON, THEY CAN MAKE THE DOG EVEN HOTTER, SO THEY MUST BE SUPERVISED AND RE-SOAKED AS REQUIRED
Please note that the coat must be returned in the sealed bag provided and still in its new, unused state. Try the coat on your dog. If it does not fit please fold it back up and put it straight back into the sealed bag. Coats should not be soaked if they are going to be returned or exchanged. Thank you.
