Full Coverage Cooling Vest for Dogs
Outfit your dog in the Ruffwear Swamp Cooler and let the cooling begin! On a warm sunny day, dogs will trot for the shade, lie down, and pant the heat away. They need an air-conditioner like the Swamp Cooler to stay cool, happy and active.
The Ruffwear Swamp Cooler provides protection from the sun and cooling through evaporation.
Your dog can beat the heat, staying cool while running, playing on the beach, boating on open water,or waiting for their turn during outdoor agility trials in the heat.
The light-colored fabric reflects solar radiation, while evaporative cooling pulls heat from the dog. The integrated leash portal allows leash attachment when the Swamp Cooler is worn over the Ruffwear Front Range or Web Master Harnesses.
The summers can be brutal here in Australia. Despite the heat our dogs require exercise for their health and for their sanity. Not all breeds are cut out for this climate. The Swamp Cooler is great for breeds who have difficulty in the heat. It's also fabulous for sporty dogs who are going to play despite the heat.
How to use it
Just soak the coat completely with cold water. Wring out the excess. Silde your dog's head through the neck hole and fasten the buckles at the rib cage. And off you go! It's simple and straight forward. The Swamp Cooler will keep your dog cool for several hours (depending on how hot it is) and then you can renew the evaporative power wherever you can find water.

I am very happy with this purchase. The XS size fits my 5kg dog well and he can comfortably run and jump. Still waiting for some hot weather to test the cooling so 4 stars at this stage for quality of the fabric and the fit. Susan , Canberra ACT
I purchased this to cool my dog while competing in obedience trials and to cool between runs at agility. It fits really well and is very good quality. Anne Lewis, SUTTON NSW
The cooling jacket worked very well, maintained the temperature for a few hours. Sandra North, DONCASTER EAST VIC
Perfect for warmer weather! My little girl is black and gets hot pretty quick. I brought this little jacket to a photo shoot and used some water to wet it and she felt better straight away. Easy to put on and small to pack away. Sylvia Broadbent, Pinjarra WA

Really well made product that suits my dog's body shape perfectly. Fabric and Sawing quality is also great. Worth the price and I am excited to use this product this hot and dry summer to keep her cool, we are off to the beach camping soon! Thank you

I finally get to give feedback on the cooler vest.
It is AWESOME x gazillion!!!
In fact it's making my holiday 100% more at ease knowing this vest helps my bull terrier Bear be comfortable when it's 39 degrees!
Omg every doggy deserves one of these.
I really have to say thanks to Julia who brought my attention to these amazing must have cooling vests.
The only thing silly about them is that everyone who doesn't know about them thinks we're kookoo putting this on in this heat. They think it's a warming coat!
I highly recommend putting some sort of wording or big logo on the back to let others know it's for cooling down

Great. Easy to put on and adjust for the correct fit. Billy kept his cool when out tracking recently when the temperature got to 26. Now I need another one !!!

First, I live in Singapore with a male Doberman. We are originally from Sydney. The temperature is rarely below 32C and humidity is rarely below 60%. The large size fits him well, he is 42kgs, and the material is hard wearing. I do find I need to re-wet it often for maximum benefit. It doesn't stop the effects of the heat but it seems to take the edge off. I will continue to use it and combined with regular drink stops I believe it is assisting his comfort during our walks in the Singapore weather.

I love this product as it keeps my little fur child cool and contented while we are camping.
