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.

    Game changer

    My border collie runs hot, and this vest has been a boon. We can hop in a hot car, and he will still be comfortable. No hikes or anything in it yet, but we play fetch with it on during hot days.

    Gives us more time in the heat

    This vest gives our very heat sensitive wirehaired pointing griffon a lot more time in the heat, provided we have plenty of water available to reload it, depending on the weather. It’s been in the 90s here and very dry climate so we had to rewet it every maybe half hour-45 min. Will last longer in different weather. It’s a must for summer here in Colorado! We use it for walks and epic fetch sessions :) looking forward to trying it out for hikes too.

    Would recommend!

    Easy to adjust size, easy on and off. Def does keep my pups cooler when just fighting heat, but don't feel like it helps them much in High humidity. Great quality like all the Ruff Wear products

    Will outlive your dog

    I bought this when I first got my Newfoundland service dog 10 years ago. Kept him cool and comfortable all summer every summer here in SoCal until he passed last year. It's still in excellent condition. Everything I got for him from Ruffwear is still in good condition even after years of moderate to heavy use.

    Major cooking factor

    Durable cooling on hot days. My log likes to rub her body on things. This holds up to the abuse
