Our dog cooling jacket can help your dog stay cool on hot days. Water-absorbing, cross-linked polymer crystals are sewn into the lining. Once saturated with water, the jacket works by evaporation. The evaporative process allows heat to transfer from the dog to the jacket, and from the jacket to the air – similar to our bodies’ own manner of cooling through perspiration.
The jacket absorbs water quickly, but releases it slowly. By submerging the jacket in water for just a few minutes, the crystals absorb enough to keep the evaporative process going for up to several days. Even when fully soaked, the jacket holds the water, keeping your dog cool and dry. The jacket can be charged over and over. When winter comes, a dry jacket becomes an insulating jacket, helping to cut the cold.

Evaporative Cooling Explained
Resulting water vapor (energy/heat dissipation) Surrounding heat, heat exchange between dog and jacket. Using water absorbing, polymer crystals, sewn into supplex fabric, the evaporative process allows heat to physically transfer from the dog to the jacket, similar to our bodies own manner of cooling through perspiration. Keeping your dog cool and protected from heat exhaustion.
Measure the circumference of your dogs chest at it's widest point, generally a few inches behind the dogs shoulders.
Medium, 30-60 lbs., fits chest size 22" - 31"
Large, 60-100+ lbs., fits chest size 29" - 39"
Submerge the jacket by placing it in a basin of water, or by adding water directly to the bag containing the jacket. Soak for 30 minutes or until fully saturated. Cool K9 vest can be used all day before re-soaking. For maximum coolness, re-soak every few hours.
Wash by hand, no harsh abrasives. Hang to dry when not in use. Do not freeze!
