    Default The Kool Collars....great for bulldogs in the warm temperature.

    When Vegas was a baby...I was sitting in the vet's office thumbing thru a magazine. I came across an article about dogs and heat.

    It was a beautiful, sunny day. He was visiting friends in eastern Oregon and everything was great... or should have been. They were out enjoying the day with their dogs and didnít have a care in the world. But, things changed in an instant. Before they knew it two of the dogs were suffering from heatstroke. Believe it or not, heatstroke and heat exhaustion can happen under almost any condition if the dogs arenít acclimated to the climate. So, they quickly administered canine first aid with the help of a trained EMT who happened to be with them. Every effort was made to save the dogs. Sadly, both succumbed to heatstroke and died. It was a horribly heart-wrenching experience... one he didnít want any dog lover to ever have to experience. Then, it occurred to him that the problem is not about being reactive but proactive, because once a dogís body temperature reaches a certain level, thereís little that can be done (even by trained professionals). He truly believed there had to be a way to keep dogs from ever getting that overheated. So, from that tragedy came the inspiration for the KoolCollar.

    Hereís the deal... dogs donít sweat! Panting is their best defense against heat and too often, thatís just not enough. So... owner/creator Chad Watsonís idea with his KoolCollar was to create a system that would actually simulate sweat for dogs. And, thatís just what it does. The collar holds ice that slowly melts, allowing cool water to drip down a dogís chest across those large muscles and the heart. As the water evaporates, it cools the dog... keeping his core body temperature under control. And, the best news is... it works! Thereís even a dry freezer-tube option to keep dogs cool without using ice.

    KoolCollars have been used and tested in countless high performance situations, as well as to simply increase a petís comfort and well-being. The results are amazing! Time after time word comes back that dogs stay cooler, perform longer and recover faster... and that makes everyone happy. In fact, thereís a bit of a ícult followingí around the world as one dog lover tells another about the product... because there are NO other ífill with iceí dog collars available. Latest records show that dogs from America, Spain, Africa, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam and Canada are sporting the KoolCollar.

    And, while every business owner dreams of their product taking off and being íthe next big thing,í what really matters to Chad Watson is that his collars are meeting a need and literally saving dogs lives. He and everyone who works with him are so committed to helping people protect their pets that he often donates collars to charitable organizations and disabled people who rely on service dogs in their everyday life. Their company vision is truly for the love of dogs. And, if Chad and his crew could share one message with dog owners and handlers everywhere it would be the company tag line... give your dog what he needs, but canít ask for.



    This stuck in my head and I started my search for the kool collars. No store had heard of them....I showed the article to my Mud Bay store..and they had no clue what it was. Fast forward 2 years later. I walk into the same Mud Bay and there they were. Right up front on display. I picked one up for Vegas and Orion and I picked up an extra ice pack for each. I paid about 70.00 total. A small and Medium collar and 2 extra ice packs.

    Carolina Pet Pantry is selling them now! Not only does she offer free shipping, but you can get them at a much better price than I did at the store I bought them from.

    I've never seen those mats before, wonder if they work? I just went on Carolina Pet Pantry and ordered Rosie a red KoolCollar and some extra ice packs. I think that is a wonderful invention! Beats chasing her around with my squirt bottle that has the fan attached to the top of it. It's kinda commical, I run after her squirting water and fanning her off and the whole time she is barking and growling at the squirt bottle (because OF COURSE she's scared of it) so by the time we're done she and I are so pooped and hot that it completely defeats the purpose of the entire thing! Can't wait to try it, I'll let you guys know how she likes it!!

    I just bought something similar here at another store. But I've been so impressed with Carolina Pet Pantry that I might as well return it and buy one from them! Thanks for letting us know @Libra926, I was going to email someone there to see if they sell something similar.

    They worked for Vegas and Orion. Orion loves to lay on the hot concrete....and Vegas loves to sit in the sun. Keep in mind..I live in Seattle, so we usually get into the 70 to 80 mark. Very rarely do we get above 90. It's important to get a refill pack if you are concerned about the melting ice. The refill packs last about 1/2 to 1 hour. They freeze just as fast. So, while you are using one, the other is freezing. Outside..using ice is the best. The drippings fall down their chest and work like sweat to cool them off. We love them here!

    Ok I went to CPP and the link took me to Calming Collars. I typed Cool Collar into the search and it said none. Is she sold out right now?

    They're not picking up on the search @LariP. I found them on page 4 of the collars section. And the cool packs are in collar accessories.
    I didn't order in the end though due to shipping fees I can't click free shipping for something coming this far!

    They spell Kool Collars with a K. That is why the search isn't picking it up for you.

    @Libra926, did you get the size M? or L, I know they both say up to 75 lbs. but with our bullies their necks are so big. The large shows a mastiff and the M shows a boxer, I think at 63 lbs. and a big neck the L???
