Reflect the sun’s heat off and away from your dog!

This sun reflecting material greatly reduces heat build up on your dog’s coat while the open mesh fabric allows cooling air flow through it! The fabric acts like a mirror reflecting the sun’s heat off and away from your dog.

For Extra Cooling – Dip K-9 Cooler in Water and Wear Wet!
Increasing the air flow through a wet K-9 Cooler greatly intensifies cooling.

Monitor your dog for heat build up! Remove K-9 Cooler when dogs are in the shade unless you wet the K-9 Cooler and have adequate ventilation or a fan. Also, watch that dogs don’t become too cold even on a hot day! You can make short coated dogs shiver!

K9- Cooler/Shiver Shirts are amazingly efficient!

A NOTE of Caution About “Wet Cloth” Cooling Jackets
Wet towel or cloth-type cooling jackets cease to cool and begin to trap body heat as soon as the wet fabric reaches body temperature. This trapped body heat quickly accelerates the overheating problem you are attempting to prevent.

The same type of problem occurs when horses are “wet sheeted”. This information has been detailed in an article in the Horse magazine’s cover story, July, 2003, titled “Heat Stress”, (page 30) with heat concerns with the 2004 Olympic games in Spain.
Please help others become aware of this often unrecognized and unintentional occurrence.. When water reaches body temperature it becomes an insulator that traps heat.
Stay safe and cool.

*K-9 Coolers are Not intended for use as a “turn-out jacket”.*

We use the highest grade reflective mesh fabric manufactured to ensure our products are unbeaten in shade and cooling ability. Silver Shade tarps use strong, supple, polypropylene bindings, not the plastic bindings that are coarse and unravel!

Our rolled-rim toothed grommets are set in heat-cut holes for life time placement. The 12″ grommet spacings improve tarping strength, convenience, and provide easy match-up with other tarps.

How To Properly Measure Your Dog

1. Back Length = SIZE – Measure from base of neck to base of tail.

2. Body Length – from the center front of the chest (prosternum)
to the rear of the dog (a horizontal line) stopping at a point below
the base of the tail. (see picture)
 
3. Jacket Depth – measure from one elbow over the shoulders to the other elbow.
4. Girth – loosely measure around midpoint of body. Strap should remain loose when worn to allow air flow!

5. Neck Opening – measure around base of neck as a jacket would fit – where neck meets the rest of the body. Consider haircoat(see #2!) (a greyhound neck is very different than a St. Bernard neck 😉

6. 2nd Belly Strap – Giant sizes only.(opt.) 1st strap, measure from center chest, around curve of shoulder to behind front leg, allowing room for leg movement (this would fall behind line 3 on picture above.) – 2nd strap, measure from center of chest to where line 4 is drawn – (remember plumbing on male dogs).
A “Split Tail” option is available for dogs that flag or have a curled tail. This allows the jacket to extend beyond the base of the tail, covering and cooling the entire dog. Cost $7.00

COST for Custom Jackets = Standard K-9 Cooler Price plus 
$5.00 minimum per jacket. Multiple alterations or custom options add $4.00
for each additional alteration.

For extra cooling – dip the K-9 Cooler in water and wear wet.*
