Cooling collars for your dog
Recently I purchased these cooling collars for my boys. They work great! Really worth it. Just put some ice cubes, inside the collar put it on your dog and it helps to keep them cool. My dogs were a little anxious about them at first, but now no problem. When it's really hot outside, put on the collar on your dog and your ready for your walk.

RE: Cooling collars for your dog
Dog cooling collars? I have never heard of such thing before. Do you mean something like this?



Wouldn't it be too cold for dogs if the ice last for a long time? Rolleyes
Try to hold some ice in your hand or against your neck. Don't let go until it's all melt. Tongue

That's a great idea, we would always try and throw towels soaked in cold water on them to cool them off when they got overheated, especially when they got older. I heard that the hot pavement could burn their paws, but our dogs would never let us put any kinds of shoes on them.

RE: Cooling collars for your dog
I think they are awesome and my digs love them. My dogs would never wear shoes either, but the hot pavement also concerns me at times. Luckily we don't have that much pavement out where I live. I know I heard on the radio a week ago someone said the concrete temperature was 123. That's pretty hot. The outside temperature at the time was 101.

RE: Cooling collars for your dog
With a lot of dog deaths happening in Toronto due to owner negligence of leaving the dog in the car in the heat, someone came up with the heating app.

A thing is attached to the dog's collar, when it gets too hot for him or her, a message is sent to the phone to inform them that it's too hot for the dog.

Very good invention.

@andrew. You're right this is a clever invention. Do you know if there are distance limits? If they are operated through wifi? How securely do they attach and the weight of them? I know I shooting a lot of questions at you. Sorry, I'm just really interested. If it's not to costly I might consider it for my dogs. Especially given the amount of time they sound outside. It would also work in addition to the cooling collar. When you get the message about your pooch being to hot, just grab a collar. They are both great ideas in my opinion.

Doesn't that heating app seem kind of irresponsible to you? I mean, I believe people should know when to keep their dogs out of the heat anyway and an app would create a false sense of security that might make their standards more lax. That's just how I see it, anyway.

How long does the cooling collar last? Ice melts pretty quickly on a hot day.

That does sound like a really neat tool. I usually do not take my dog in the car if it is warm out because I always get nervous. However, there are times when I have to when we are heading up north or something. During these trips we usually stop at the restaurant to eat and I always get nervous that it is too hot for my puppy.

I have never heard of these cooling collars before. However, I don't know if it would be helpful to my dog at all. She seems to always be hot and panting. She has a lot of fur and we need to keep her trimmed short during the summer. There are times where I have to drench her in cold well water and she is still panting! Crazy dog. Smile

I think it depends on the pet owners. I look at it as a added preventive measure. Not something to solely to rely on. Another precaution I would add to my pets care routine. I know some people would miss use it. Laziness, irresponsibility and carelessness, unfortunately are things some are just made of. These type of people shouldn't be pet owners to begin with. Anything can be used in neglectful or harmful manner, it's up to the pet owners to use them properly.

I've heard of this before. A friend of mine made a review about it and how it kept her dogs cool because she loved taking hikes with them. I think it was called Kumfy Tailz.

Fortunately, we have had the opportunity to just shave off Buchi's hair because he matted so easily. We only go out at nights for our evening walks where the weather is cool.

RE: Cooling collars for your dog
Unless you have an extremely long haired dog is a cooling collar really needed? I grew up with medium sized and haired dogs in an area of Australia where it regularly gets to 40 celcius (100 farenheit) and the dogs didnt need any cooling. Most animals aclimatise to their area if they are outside enough

40C? 100F?
Most animals under such high heat weather will most likely find the coolest place they can think of, and lay there doing nothing all day until it's better.

Even humans will get into heat stroke if such high temperature persist. Dogs will have a harder time under the same condition due to their less advanced sweat glands which is non-exist beside the tongue. Get an air conditioning lol.
