DOG COOLING VEST

£30.00

Help your dog stay cool and refreshed with a ThermLow cooling vest, designed and made in Scotland by Freckles Designs.

The Dog Cooling Vests are made from a soft lightweight nonwoven PVA foam fabric that absorbs and retains water. This amazing fabric becomes really cold when activated by water. The coat will stay moist and cool for several hours (dependant on weather conditions) and the evaporative process activated by the cool fabric allows your dog to cool down more than the outside air. You will also find that although the cooling vest is damp, your dog will remain dry.

ThermLow Cooling Vests slip over your dog's head and have an underbelly strap which covers the chest of your dog, and fastens with a velcro strap. The underbelly strap is very important as this allows the body core to cool down too which provides for a more efficient cooling process, and means your dog is much more comfortable than a coat that simply covers your dog's back.

Why does my dog need a cooling vest?

Unlike humans, dogs do not have efficient cooling systems and so they can overheat easily. Dogs try to regulate their body temperature by panting, or by perspiring through the pads of their paws, as they have almost no sweat glands like humans.  However, dogs can only expel a small fraction of a their excess bodyheat in this way. Using a cooling vest can therefore help your dog maintain a normal body temperature.

How to use the vest

To use the ThermLow cooling vest simply soak it in in water and then wring out so that it is moist but not dripping. Slip it over your dog’s head, tuck the underbelly strap between the dog's front legs and bring the straps up and secure the hook and look fastenings.  If the coat starts drying out, simply re-wet it to maintain the cooling effect.

How long does the vest stay cool?

This depends on the outside temperature, but generally it will stay cool for a few hours. If the vest starts drying out, simply re-wet it to maintain the cooling effect.

Caring for your vest

When not in use, leave the vest to dry out. It is not recommended that the vest is stored in a plastic bag for longer than a day once wet as it may start to smell. Instead, while damp, fold the vest into the shape that you would like to store it in, let it dry naturally and it will become hard and then it can be safely stored away.

DO NOT try and unfold your cooling vest when it is hard and dry as it could tear. Soak it in water and it will become soft and supple again and ready to use. If the vest starts drying out, simply re-wet it to maintain the cooling effect.

If required, the cooling vest can be machine washed at 30 degrees. Wash separately. Do not use conditioners or softeners and do not tumble dry

Dog Cooling Vest

The Freckles dog cooling vest is by far the best on the market. All three of my dogs have them and living in Malta they really need them. They keep them cool and comfortable in very high temperatures, I use them indoors in the height of the summer to keep them cool. I highly recommend this product

Cooling jacket

Our second purchase of a cooling jacket for our dog, he had outgrown the first one.
The coat arrived really quickly despite having to be made to order and is of high quality and it does exactly what it says, helps keeps our dog comfortable when out walking.

I have waited until it was warm to try the cooling dog vest and it is amazing, my boy feels the heat and has recently been diagnosed with a heart murmur so keeping him cool is very important, but I popped this on him and he is a happy (cool) bunny, I knew the quality would be good though as I have two of the drying coats and they have been worn and washed so many times and are still as good as new, thank you Freckles
