The Ruffwear Swamp Cooler provides protection from the sun and cooling through evaporation. In warm climates, dogs typically stay cool by seeking shade during the heat of the day and moving around in cooler temperatures. The Swamp Cooler allows dogs to perform in hot climates. To activate the Swamp Cooler, soak in water, wring out and place on your dog. The light-colored fabric reflects solar radiation, while evaporative cooling pulls heat from the dog. The integrated leash portal allows leash attachment when the Swamp Cooler is worn over our Front Range™, Hi & Light™ or Web Master™ Harnesses.

Ruffwear is the top rated and have great products!

I haven't had much of a chance to try it out on my dog, as we've been bouncing back and forth with the temps here in milled Tennessee. I ordered the cooling vest according to this girth size, and that makes the rest of the vest oversized. But that is not a problem with the brand, it's a problem because my dog is overweight. I have tried to put it on him a couple times but he isn't happy with it and wanted right back in the house, so as I mentioned before, I haven't had it on him but a few minutes so I can't attest to the effectiveness of the vest.

Swamp Cooler beats Australian summer!

My 2 year Miniature Schnauzer is very active but really struggles with the heat. We live in Australia and every day this week the temperature is over 30 degrees Celsius. The swamp cooler keeps him happy on our walks and I can feel his body is very cool under the vest. Definite win for us!

Love it!

It is really good to keep my service dog cool this summer and has helped keep her warm this winter. I would suggest this to anyone.
