Swamp Cooler™ Cooling Dog Vest

cooling dog vest

Color

Selected: Sage Green

When shade is low and the mercury is high, dogs can count on the Swamp Cooler to help get them outside. Strategic material choices and design offer solutions for the challenges that warm-weather exploring presents. The light-colored fabric reflects solar radiation and provides shading while wetting the vest activates our Swamp Cooler™ Tech for that refreshing, just-stepped-out-of-a-lake feeling also known as evaporative cooling. Just give it a soak, put it on your dog, and go. When it dries, re-soak it to recharge it.

The Swamp Cooler Vest includes side-release buckles for easy on/off and a leash portal so it can be worn over a harness - topping off the essential features to make it our highest-coverage cooling option in the Swamp Cooler™ Collection.

What's New: We updated the external air mesh for improved abrasion resistance and improved water absorption, and we developed a new construction that retains more water in high-exposure zones on the vest for a longer charge.

    Works like a Charm

    I just purchased 2 of these vests (1 in each color) for my 2 fur babies and it worked like a charm! I love to go for long walks/hikes and take them with me!! They stayed wet for quite a while and seemed to keep them cool! The true test will be in the middle of summer 😁

    Swamp cooler

    I've purchased this for my last dog and now my little girl. It works like a charm. My last dog was a certified pet therapy dog. When we did visitations in the summer to health care facilities, this vest worked like a charm. I highly recommend it on those hot summer days. Remember to bring an extra bottle of water, just in case ot goes dry.

    Fun in the sun

    Just started getting hot where we live and I've been wanting these. Two of my three dogs hate the heat and the first time they wore these their play time lasted much longer for keeping them cooler. Can't wait to get more use out of them. So far very happy
