Product Description

Size: XXS

The Swamp Cooler from Ruffwear helps your dog beat the heat. Just soak the Swamp Cooler in cold water, wring it out and fasten around your dog. Evaporative cooling exchanges the heat with the coolness of the stored water in the coat. The light-colored vest keeps the sun off your dog's back for additional heat relief. Rewet the vest as needed as water evaporates to recharge the cooling action.

This product is simply amazing!!! I am sooo happy with it! I run with my friends Vizsla in our local mountains and I am always overly cautious about heat stroke. This jacket completely put my mind at ease. Running in So Cal in the heat can be hard on people, but deadly for dogs. I read many reviews on other sites (all of which were 5 star ratings) so I decided to give it a shot. Getting it ready was super easy and after a good wringing out it didn't even get my car damp as we traveled to the trailhead. Well let me tell you, this dog can kick my butt running up the mountain regardless. Now however she can do it in 80 degree heat without hardly panting. Her coat felt cool to the touch (under the jacket) every time I checked her. After about and hour I did "reactivate" it with more h2o but that was a cinch. It is adjustable and fits her perfectly, no "wear" marks on her thin coat. I've read from other people that it washes really well. If you have a dog that you take out in the heat, you NEED this jacket! Best purchase I've made all year!...and I like to shop! =)

I live in Savannah, GA. Today is low humidity (for the South) but 96 degrees. I have a 110lb black lab. I don't have to tell you that it's too hot for a human to be out there but even worse for a creature covered in black fur. When the weather gets like this, I have to start taking my boy for walks early in the morning and in the evening. ANYTIME I take him for a walk he always comes in and pants heavily for an hour or so. I couldn't wait to get this vest for him. I took him out for a half hour walk after soaking the vest in an ice chest that contained beverage leftovers from the 4th. I can not tell you how amazed I was when we walked into the house with virtually no panting at all! He usually just lays on the floor and pants HARD for a very long time. Not this time! He is walking around like his normal self! I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! Now to find something to keep his paws from burning on the asphalt.

I purchased this for my English/French Bulldog/Staffie mix. She had difficulty walking in temperatures above 75 degrees. She would have to stop and "frog out" in the shade for 5-10 minutes during our walks and she had a very difficult time breathing which made me nervous. A 45 minute walk became a 1.5 hour long walk because of her need to stop and regulate her body temperature. I decided to give this cooling vest a chance, though I was quite skeptical since I always thought that dogs could only regulate their body temp via panting. I bought it in April and have used it several times since then, but refrained from writing a review until I could put it through the test. The final test came today when I took her to the park and let her run on her 50 foot lead. She ran...and ran...and RAN. I had to give her a little time out b/c I thought she might die in the 103 degree index. Granted, we were only out for about a half hour and we didn't run the entire time (I don't have a cooling vest for my own body), but her body under the vest was cool to the touch and, if I had let her, she would have kept running. I know she would not have been able to do so if she didn't have the vest on. I did re-wet the vest once during the run even though it was still wet. I didn't want to risk letting her body temperature rise since it was really hot and humid.
Long story short, this was worth the money. The ONLY complaint I have is that it is light in color and it does get dirty. But, since my dog's nickname is "Dirt Dog" due to her propensity for finding and rolling in dirt and/or feces, I have thrown in the towel on caring about her appearance. I can tell you that her face was full of joy as she ran full tilt through the vast field in her sky-blue cooling vest with her human panting and sweating 50 paces behind her. Totally worth the money...

This is one of products that I really love for my dogs! It's been about a month since we start using it. Washed it a couple of times and it came out clean. I put it in a laundry bag when washed it and air dried. He's black fur and was getting hot very fast, but with help of this cooling vest he doesn't even look for shade to rest like he used to! One thing that I don't like about it is that when I don't have an easy access to the water. But it still keeps the sunlight off his back, so it's a great product! Not only when we do outdoor activities, but I put it on him when we go on a road trip so he doesn't get hot from the sunlight in the car. I LOVE IT! Now I need a cooling HAT; his head gets hot, too! ;) I have to add one more thing; to wet it, you really need to soak it in the water. When you take a close look when you wetting it, you'll see the part is really wet and not so wet. Remember, the vest is three layers, so you need to make sure it's all wet.

After our dog had a seizure from heat stroke, we knew we had to do something about it. So I did some research and came across this product. I read all the feedback and decided, this definitely was worth a try! We got it wet, wrung it out, and put it in a bowl inside the fridge for a while before putting it on him. We tried it out and it works great! Every other day before this he'd pant heavily and be lethargic all day in the heat. With this, he'd lay around, but clearly less laboring. Most of the time, not even panting. HUGE improvement! He's a big guy so we put it on him for walks, car rides, and other fun activities on land. At first he seemed embarrassed, but then realized that he felt great! The only annoying thing (which has nothing to do with the product) is that he'd wear this in the house and leave damp spots on the floor/furniture where he'd lay. But it's worth the price to have him comfortable. I wish I'd found this years ago!
