Is it correct that this can be used over a no pull harness that has the leash attachment over the dogs back? There is an opening to accommodate that?
Answer by ChewyMay 18, 2018
This product has a 2-way zipper that allows access to underneath harness or leash attachments, so it can be easily worn over any harness.

Why would I not achieve the same cooling effects simply by wetting down my dog? My concern is that the vest will actually make my dog more hot, rather than cool him off. Can you explain, please? Thank you.
Answer by ChewyJul 21, 2019
This vest is light in color to reflect the sun's heat. As the water evaporates, it takes your dog’s body heat with it, keeping them fresh and comfy. Re-wet as many times as is necessary to make it to the end of the outing.

When you wet the vest will it get your dog wet? How many degrees will it decrease body temperature?
Answer by ChewyMay 26, 2018
This coat is not waterproof, water will go through it. It is made with lightweight material to help keep your pet cool. The amount of cooling will vary and depend upon the individual pet characteristics and activity level as well as weather conditions.

How do you wash this product?
Answer by ChewyJun 07, 2018
This Vest is machine washable and is recommended to air dry.

REALLY works!

This is a quality product that works exactly as it's supposed to. I find it easier to wet completely using the bathtub faucet, and easier to wring out there as well. If you wring it out completely, when you take it off your dog will only be slightly damp after use, not wet. My silky terrier went from panting heavily and seeking shade every few feet on our walks in the high 70s (without the vest) to happily trotting along with occasional panting in the high 80s (with the vest). This is a necessity as July and August will hit 100 with high humidity.

I think it works

My rescue lab mix is about 58 lbs and has a lanky body with a skinny neck but big chest. It's hard to find things that fit her properly. We tried on the large and the medium. Because of her skinny neck I went with the medium although it doesn't cover her body length all the way but I think it's still effective. She has black short fur and is rather heat intolerant. I picked this jacket for the light coloring too. In a 4 hour period on a high 80s day I had to rewet it about 4 times to keep her cool, so like once an hour. It was clear that as long as the the jacket was wet she was panting less and happier. I took 1 star off because I wish the the medium wasn't drastically shorter than the large size, and covered more of her body length.

Awesome vest!

I bought this for my blue heeler/lab mix (short, black fur) who overheats easily. We took it hiking through the Sand Dunes in Colorado with no shade for a few hours and it worked great! She was like a different dog and had a great time. I never saw signs of heat distress, other than minor panting. I wet it once before we started and used about 1 liter over a few hours to re-wet it. Even dry, I think the reflective feature was beneficial with her black fur. My girl is about 50 lbs and the medium was perfect. Highly recommend!

Sizing Issues

I was very excited to try this on my rescue rottie because her black fur gets very hot in the summer sun and she struggles with the heat. Unfortunately, we couldn't use it! Her measurements were right in the "Large" range, but the vest was way too small for her. The size guide / sizing is not correct.

It Worked!

My English Cocker Spaniel would come back from our walks excessively panting anytime the temp was over 80 degrees. This vest really worked to keep her cool during our walks & when we returned home, she wasn't even panting. I would highly recommend it

Fits my cattle dog perfectly

I have a blue heeler that's about 47lbs and this fits her perfectly! Great quality and well made. Easy to put on and it comes with a small hanger which I thought was super cute haha!

Not Sure if its Cooling?

Not sure how much this really helps my dog stay cooler. I'm thinking about returning it. He is black so having the lighter color helps I think but thats about it

Good purchase for summer walks

I purchased this last winter expecting to need it this summer. I finally used it. Since I have a small dog, I soaked the vest in a sealed container and put it on her when we reached the park. Work well. She could stay out about 1/2 as long as normal. I poured some water on once. My dog is a Cavalier with her natural coat. We live in DC and have humid summers.

Very fine product

I am very happy with this vest. I bought another cooling vest a few years ago for my Bichon and when it dried it turned into cardboard and he couldn't move. Also it wasn't washable. This one is well made, washable, and stays nice and cool for a comfortable night's sleep. It goes on easily too. My dog is 15 lbs and I bought a size small. Thank you.

This jacket is awesome!!!! I have a rescue and she is a lab/pitt mix. We go on long walks and hikes together because she loves going outside. Sometimes I don't get to take her because when it's super hot she overheats. Thanks to this jacket, that isn't an issue anymore!
