Product Review: Cool K-9 Cooling Vest
Our guys, like most dogs, love the outdoors but are ill equipped for high temperatures. Hyperthermia, or heatstroke, is the main health risk our dogs face on hot days. Even if you avoid the extreme, heat can spoil the fun of summer outdoor activities.
Taking your dog swimming is a great solution but unless you have a pond or a pool in your yard, you can't always do that. Wetting your dog helps, but keeping him constantly wet isn't the best thing. So what do you do?
Our Canine Cooler thermoregulating pet bed works wonderfully and we have one at home and one for when we go camping. But I wanted my dogs to have the same cooling benefit during our walks as well. I was looking for a way to keep my dogs cool and dry at the same time. That's when I discovered Cool K-9 cooling vest.
The vest works by evaporation, while the dog remains dry. Even the vest itself feels dry to the touch. The vest absorbs water quickly, but releases it slowly. Once charged, it will last up to several days. How cool is that? Quite cool actually! (pun intended)
Easy to use, Cool K-9 cooling vest has become part of our summer arsenal. The difference in Jasmine's comfort level on a hot day seems remarkable.
It worked even when my husband put it on inside out! If you are anything like him, you might want to keep the instructions on hand!
If your dog is struggling with the summer heat, check it out!
