    @JAKEISGREAT, wondering if Jake allows the vest to stay on...i mean, does he try to chew it off or anything like that? 'cuz i'm thinking Tate might wiggle himself out of it and chew on the vest, thus defeating the purpose!!

    Jake has only had it on when we were walking..he wasn't thrilled..his ears were back! A bully tantrum! But it would be hard for them to reach! I think it probably feels like a harness..and Jake gets the same look! They do have some really neat cooling pads. They don't have water in them or anything! Large ones are pricey tho..but you might have better luck? I've been debating one to take to big bear. We don't have ac there and it gets warm! Thought if you (me) had a fan and this pad..would work great. Debating...but before you buy vest..check it out. Also they have cooling bandanas that are great! Go around their neck..better than kool color..no mess..I got large..gave one to my daughter for her 110 pound golden and gave one to a friend who has a 5 year old bully! They are super cheap..like $8... @cali baker

    thanks @JAKEISGREAT.
    funny, i looked at that cooling pad today online and was rather amazed by it...no need to refrigerate or plug in, or anything...so i plan to order a large pad. They are pretty pricey tho but seems like a wise investment; i'll probably order the vests too...the large only come in pink and brown but i'm getting them anyways for the two boys! i love that color combo!!

    i love big bear and know it can get very warm during the summer. I think that getting the cooling pad would be a great idea and humans can use it too...not just for the pets (at least that's what i'm planning on doing...they have to share)!

    The cooling vests came in the mail today! Very cute. I got them in size L and they come in this very cute pink and brown stripe w/pink and brown hawaiian print on the other side. Who said pink is just for girls?! I think Tate and Finn look rather handsome in their new accessory, plus it cools them down!

    That is a very good idea!

    I don't know if Delilah would really want to wear it though.

    So I'm looking at this more closely now. I think it would be fabulous for when delilah goes to the dog park if I can get her to wear it.

    How exactly does it work? Do they work really well and is it worth the money?

    @laurendoodler, i had the same concern--i wasn't sure Tate or Finn would keep it on but so far, so good. It's important to get the right size for the vest to stay on of course. I got large for both of them. It fits Tate perfectly but it's a little looser on Finn( i figure he'll just grow into it anyways). Even through a lot of rough playing the vest stays on Tate (Finn's comes off 'cuz it's a little big).

    I'm not exactly sure on the science behind it but the package says the vest is made of "crystal polymer filling gels when hydrated. Cools dog through evaporation". All you do is soak the vest in cold water for about 20min, pat it dry, and then place it on your dog. You can put it in the fridge for about 15min after soaking in water if you want (just not supposed to freeze).

    And, it "stays cool for hours".

    So far, i like it very much. I think the pups do too

    I know @JAKEISGREAT likes the one she got for Jake as well.\

    they have a lot of other cooling gadgets for pets too. I also got the cooling bandanna and the cooling pad (which i'm still waiting for).

    @cali baker hmm, thanks for the info! I'm really considering one for Delilah.

    She loves to play outside at the dog park, but with these 90 degree days we can't stay very long. She gets so so hot and just pants and pants for hours and gets super thirsty and slobbery. She's practically dead after we go for 25 minutes and comes home and just plops on the floor after drinking a crap ton of water. Think one of those cooling vests would help? I don't know how cool they actually make your dog.
