The sun’s out, and the days are getting longer and hotter. For most of us, this means we’re spending our time around water, in the shade, and in the mountains – and of course our best friends are coming with us! To help you prepare your furry companion for the hot days ahead, we asked our customers for their favorite Ruffwear gear for summer! Here’s a look at the top three.

K-9 Float Coat:

The K-9 Float Coat is perfect for dogs who are adventuring in or around water – canoeing, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, boating, surfing, or rafting. This life jacket features a strong handle for assisting dogs out of the water and onto the boat or dock and a telescoping neck closure that adjusts to securely fit dogs of all shapes and sizes. Bright colors and reflective trim provide enhanced visibility, while strategically placed foam panels help keep dogs afloat in their natural swimming position – giving them confidence as they navigate the waves.

Swamp Cooler™: 

The Ruffwear Swamp Cooler brings the air conditioning and shade along on the adventure. This layered mesh “jacket” uses natural evaporative cooling to exchange your dog’s heat for cool air, while the fabric’s light color reflects heat from the sun. Simply wet the Swamp Cooler and wring it out before fastening it onto your dog. Add water to the fabric as needed to keep the cooling process going all day long.

Here’s what our friends on Instagram had to say about the Swamp Cooler:

Floating Toys – Lunker and Hydro Plane:

The Lunker interactive floating toy makes fetch and tug fun on the water and on land! Made from recycled foam with a kernmantle rope handle, the Lunker is soft and durable, and it’s recyclable when it’s ready for retirement.

Ruffwear’s Hydro Plane soft foam disc makes fetch a blast! Pontoon-like construction keeps the Hydro Plane afloat, and the foam core is soft on dogs’ mouths. Its large size and bright colors help keep it in sight between the waves.

View the photos below to see why the Lunker and the Hydro Plane are essential for summer fun:
