    Default Cooling vest

    While checking into the Thunder shirts a bit I also found these on a website. They look like a good idea for hot summer days.

    dog cooling vest, dog cooling jacket, keepdoggiesafe.com

    Lots of other neat stuff at the same site. Princess Gracie will have to have one of the lighted leashes!

    Lou was telling me she is trying to design one of these, the problem is the 'cooling' element in most of these is soooooo heavy. She is trying to get it to where it won't be too heavy. I hope she is successful in her design.

    Looks like a great idea and if Lou can make it even more lightweight how awesome would that be?!

    Unfortunately Ohio summers are just too hot and humid so I don't think even a cooling vest would be enough to allow the dogs to go out for more than a few minutes!!

    So it says it lasts for up to 6 hours. But in what temp? Has anyone used these on bullies and does it really help?

    I've purchased cooling vests and lighted leashes from them. The vests absorb water and you can put in the fridge for a bit if you want them cold. I usually pour more cool water on them while they are wearing them. Of course you still should provide cool water for them to drink. I use them when they go to the vets on a warm day in the car and sometimes at the dog park. The lighted leashes are great but I found it difficult to remove the tiny screws on some of them to replace the battery. Also I found that because Wilson is so strong he would pull too hard on the leash and damage the leashes so that the lights no longer functioned properly. But if your dog is not a "puller" by all means use one of these. They are very pretty and impressive at night. I particularly liked the blue lights and I often got "cool" complements from passersby.

    I have one..it stays cool..don't know what temp..for 5 hours no problem. It has pockets that are filled with little beads. When wet they puff up and make channels..kind of like down in a comforter..those beads hold the coolness. This same technology is used by our soldiers in Iraq. When you first get it..it's very unimpressive..but it totally changes before your eyes. I've ordered lots from this company..if you don't like it they will take it back.but get large or bigger. They aren't very big..just supposed to sit on back of neck.i ordered large for jake..perfect..room to grow too! @sitartzm..also to me they aren't heavy..Jake refuses to answer when I ask!
