D4DOGZ has a great dog product to help you with this – the Outward Hound Cooling Bandanna for your dog.
You can keep your dog cool for several hours just by soaking the Outward Hound Cool-It Bandanna for about 20 minutes.
Dogs get dehydrated just like we do in hot weather, so keep your dog healthy and safe with a cooling bandanna from D4DOGZ.
Its the stylish way to keep your dog cool! Made with nontoxic polymer crystals that absorb up to 30 times their weight and stay cool for several hours, to get the cooling bandanna cooler pop them in the fridge for an hour or two.
They have a long Velcro closure, to ensure an adjustable fit for your dog. The cooling bandanna’s are edged with reflective tape for visibility, not that your dog will be going too far in this hot weather. Being reusable and hand washable, the cooling bandanna for dogs make a great option to help you cool your precious pooch this summer.
The Cooling bandanna’s are available in 3 sizes to fit most dogs, small suitable for chihuahuas, Medium we use on JRT, Maltese and Scotties etc, and large we use on our Labrador Shadow.
We also use one of those Shells for our dogs that are made for kids, you know the ones you can use for either water or sand!, we fill it up with clean water each morning so our dogs can pop themselves in whenever they feel hot, they often just use it as a super large dog water bowl.
Please whatever you do DON’T leave your dog inside a car in this heat, if you plan on just popping down to the shops for a minute and thought your dog would rather come with you, than be left at home in the cool of your house, think twice either leave your dog home or take them out of the car whilst you pop into the shop, some really nice shop owners may even let you bring your dog in.
Edited July 2014 – The Cooling bandana’s have been discontinued.
