Dog Cooling Products

When I heard from my neighbour about this amazing product (the dog cooling jacket pictured below) that helped her German Shepherd stay cool in the heat, I had to share these dog cooling products with you.

I’m always on the lookout to bring you products I know will help not only your senior dog, but can benefit dogs that are recovering from surgery or illness, or just need a bit of extra TLC.

Not only do these items keep your pets cool on hot summer days, but users (I should say their “guardians”) have reported lots of health benefits as well. Sounds like a winner all around!  

Let’s take a more in depth look at some of the products, and what they have to offer.

Cool K-9 Dog Cooling Jacket

I realise how counter intuitive it must seem, recommending a jacket when all you want is something to keep your dog cool in the heat. Don’t worry, because this does what you’re looking for.

Aside from all the other satisfied customers who love this product, my neighbour recently purchased it and she loves it, or I should say her dog does.

She has an older German Shepherd who finds it so hard to cope in the heat, she can’t always go out with her people because she suffers too much. When away at a show recently my neighbour saw several dogs wearing this coat, so after some investigating, she purchased it.

She couldn’t tell me enough good things about how much it has helped her dog, from the moment they put it on her. Now she’s able to stay out with them, and doesn’t pant at all!

Canine Cooler Cool Dog Bed

The canine cooler is designed to keep your pet cool on hot days. No batteries, nothing to plug in, no maintenance, no gel or toxic chemicals. Simply fill with water (once filled it will feel gel-like), place in a shaded area, and it’s good to go.

Only fill with the recommended amount of water, and get the air bubbles out to create a smooth surface.  For best results place on firm ground like the patio, kitchen floor, but not a carpeted area.

In addition to keeping your dog cool, some of the conditions it has helped include…

  • Panting and restlessness in dogs with Cushing’s experience
  • Comforts animals after chemotherapy
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Post-surgery recovery

  1. Hi

    what an idea! I had no clue that there are mats for cooling the dog, our dog Deny would love one during summer. I guess I like the CoolDog Ice Mat the most because if I understood correctly this mat can also heat the dog in the winter, am I right?

    1. Hi David, I know they’re such a great idea. As I mentioned in my post, my neighbour bought the coat for her dog who they often had to leave behind, when it got too hot out. She’s been using it quite a bit lately, and she said the change was simply remarkable. No panting, she can be outside and be comfortable. You are correct, the mat you are referring to is good for cooling and warming.
