Aussie summers are nothing if not intense. Imagine permanently wearing a fur coat right through Australia Day! Yipes! That's how our tough Aussie dogs are doing it. And that's why cooling gear can be so vital. When the going gets hot, count on the Swamp Cooler Vest to keep your dog cool outside. 

🚩 How to use it

All of Ruffwear's cooling gear work by using evaporative cooling techniques. The light-coloured fabric reflects solar radiation and provides sun coverage. But it's the act of wetting down the vest that activates the evaporative cooling action to give you that just-stepped-out-of-the-ocean feeling. Just give it a soak, put it on your dog, and go. When it dries, re-soak it to recharge it.

🚩 Easy to get on and off your rascal

The Swamp Cooler Vest includes side-release buckles for getting it on and off easily. There's a leash portal on the back so it can be worn over a harness. This vest is Ruffwear's the highest-coverage cooling option.

🚩 What's new in this latest version?

The external mesh on this newest version of the Swamp Cooler the external air mesh has been updated to be stronger for improved abrasion resistance and improved water absorption. The construction has also been upgraded to retain more water for a longer charge. 

As a matter of course I looked up whether Heliotrope is toxic to dogs and apparently it contains alkaloids that are potent liver toxins. When nibbled on in large quantities by our pets, extreme illness and possible death can occur. So beware if you have a Heliotrope munching rascal!
