A new item from the drying coat folks, Cooling coats!
Sizing guide is below, they are sized different from the drying coats (they are priced slightly less than the drying coats). I’m going to give them a try for my own crew, let me know if you want to order!
With triple layered cooling technology, this new Cooling Coat gives the active dog owner control and reassurance on warmer days. If it’s sunny outdoors, the Cooling Coat will cool your dog and keep it refreshed, allowing you both to enjoy summer adventures.
Simple to use and quick acting, its active water cooling power keeps your dog cool throughout the day.
Soak the Cooling Coat in cold water, wring it out, pop it on, and the dog’s temperature will start to lower. Using evaporative cooling technology, three layers work together to reduce the dog’s heat.
With the maximum rating of UPF 50+, the outer silver layer deflects the sun’s rays.The middle layer holds cool water in a reservoir section. The dog’s heat activates the cooling power of water, mocking ‘sweating’ which cools the dog. The inner comfy mesh layer acts as a membrane. For continuous cooling ensure that the central layer is soaked at all times.
It is always best to use the coats as a preventative measure rather than wait until your dog is panting and overheating. Always seek shade and provide water on warmer days and note that different dogs tolerate different temperatures dependent on their breed, size, coat, age and weight.

Rabbit hemorrhage Disease has made itself known again. Especially around the Courtenay Airpark! They tend to hang out in the parking lot at the Mansfield building as well.
Please watch your dogs on walks and pass the msg to anyone who owns bunnies.
This does not effect our dogs but they can pass the disease.
