A water activated, outdoor canine cooling product for summer use or during vigorous exercise.
The Hurtta Cooling Vest works by cooling your dog's heart and lungs which in turn cools the blood temperature around the body. So when he's putting you through your paces on a walk or down at the beach you'll have no worries that he's overheating in the sun.
The material of the Cooling Vest is ultra absorbent with terry cloth fibres locking in as much cool water as possible.
You'll find the vest is ideal for walking, play sessions, training and dog shows even when the sun is blazing outside. Some owners also look to the Cooling Vest in winter if they own long coated dogs who are active.
Simply soak the vest in cool water or run it under a tap. You then wring it out or not depending on your preference and then fit the vest on your dog - it's incredibly easy to put on your dog.
An ideal fit is a snug fit so that the cool texture of the Cooling Vest can touch your dog's skin.
The Cooling Vest will need to be topped up with a bottle/glass of water poured over the back every 20-30 minutes depending on the sunlight/heat. The water will soak through to the chest area keeping your dog cooled.
Available in Blue and Lilac
The Lilac colour is exclusive to Active Hound in the UK.
The Cooling Vest is largely supplied with the blue collar and zip area. The XXS and XS sizes are supplied with the salmon coloured collar and zip areas.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR DOG
- Make sure your dog is standing upright and you have your tape measure handy.
- The chest (1) measurement should be taken from just behind your dog's front legs. Wrap the tape measure all the way around your dog's chest. We recommend adding a few fingers for comfort.
- Between sizes? Try measuring the chest for a fairly snug fit without room for your fingers. Then try measuring again with a few fingers in the tape measure. If your first 'close fit' measurement was already borderline and your 'fingers' measurement pushes the reading into the next size, we suggest going for the next size. If however both measurements fall within the smaller size, opt for the smaller size.
