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 airflow 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 it Wet!
Increasing the airflow through a wet K-9 Cooler greatly intensifies cooling.
Monitor your dog for heat build-up! Remove the 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 plastic bindings that are coarse and unravel!
Our rolled-rim-toothed grommets are set in heat-cut holes for lifetime placement. The 12″ grommet spacings improve tarping strength, and convenience, and provide easy match-up with other tarps.
How To Properly Measure Your Dog
For extra cooling – dip the K-9 Cooler in water and wear wet.*
