As the mercury rises, a dog’s tolerance to heat lessens, forcing them to find shade, lie down, and pant the heat away. Keeping your dog active in high temperatures is a challenge, and can even be dangerous to their health.
One solution is the Ruff Wear Swamp Cooler™ cooling vest. Whether in the desert, on the beach, boating in open water, or playing in the sun, the Swamp Cooler acts as an air conditioner to keep your dog cool.
How does it work?
The Swamp Cooler uses evaporative technology to help pull heat up and away from the dog. Just soak the coat with water, ring out, and place on the dog. As the water on the coat evaporates, heat is displaced, thereby chilling the dog, much like an actual swamp cooler does for a house.
In addition to providing a cooling sensation, the Swamp Cooler also reflects incoming rays, and acts as a SPF blocker against UV rays.
