product information

The ThermLOW dog cooling coat is the simple way to keep your dog cool and comfortable even on a hot summer’s day. Our cool coat has been designed for the best fit (a customised fit is even available) and the most effective cooling you can find, with the chest covered as well as your dog's back. The high quality, super absorbent, evaporative material gives amazing cooling, indoors or out. Simply activate the jacket with ordinary tap water and let it work its magic.

ThermLOW is the best cooling coat on the market, in our opinion, and here's why. The fabric we use is of the highest quality, unlike cheaper alternatives. Quality fabric absorbs water better, giving a much longer lasting and effective cooling experience for your dog. We have also included a chest section to ThermLOW - something not offered in any other cool coat on the market. Each garment is expertly handmade in the UK and beautifully finished, for years of use. Not only that but if your dog is not a standard size, do not worry. For just an extra few pounds your dog can have one made exactly to their own measurements. Woof!

Other cooling coats tend to be a standard jacket cut that lays over the dog’s back and fastens at the front and belly. The ThermLOW is different. This cooling vest pops over your dog’s head for the perfect fit and an adjustable Velcro tummy strap secures it.

ThermLOW's clever design means that the vest covers your dog’s chest as well as their back, covering and cooling more areas of your dog than other designs on the market. It also makes it much less likely to slide sideways when in use.

UK made

Your dog will feel comfortably cooler - not cold or chilly but just right. The material is durable and won’t easily rip or tear. You can expect years of use and will soon wonder how you managed without it.

How do I use ThermLOW?

Soak in water from the cold tap for a few minutes, until soaked through. Lightly squeeze out any excess water, place your dog’s head through the vest and secure with the Velcro straps. Top up with water whenever it starts to dry out.

If using every day, you can store it slightly damp in the sealable bag provided. Otherwise, hang to dry. Don't try to unfold or flatten the coat when it is dry. Soak it first to soften the material.

How does it work?

Made from PVA (Polyvinyl Alcohol) foam. This material is markedly greater than other materials at absorbing and retaining water. It is also durable. The ability of PVA foam to retain water makes it ideal for cooling products. The water held in the material slowly evaporates, drawing heat away from your dog’s body and reducing their temperature. The cooling effect lasts until the coat starts to dry out, which can be an hour or two on a very hot day and quite a few hours on a typical warm day. To reactivate simply soak in water again or poor some water over it.

When can I use it?

Use at home, on walks, travelling in the car, during activities such as Agility or Flyball, after exercise - any time you need to prevent a rise in temperature or lower your dog's temperature.

when to wear ThermLOW dog cool coat

It is best used as a preventative measure but can also be used to reduce a dog’s temperature if they are already feeling the effects of heat.

How will I know it is working?

Your dog will visibly pant less and will be able to enjoy walks and activities for longer and on warm days than they can without the cooling vest. It will feel cool to the touch. Touch it and see. Or put your hand under the coat and you will notice your dog feels noticeably cooler.

Can be worn outside or even indoors to cool your dog down.

If necessary, gently hand wash or machine wash at 30 degrees. Do not tumble dry.

Measuring guide

measuring guide

Please measure your dog to get the correct fit. Use a soft tape measure and measure your dog when they are standing up.

Length - Measure from the base of the dog's neck to the base of the tail.

Girth - Measure around your dog's middle, approx halfway between the front and back legs.

Neck - If you are also taking a neck measurement, measure the circumference of the neck at the widest part.

Standard sizes

 Size  Length  Girth  Neck Hole (NOT dog's neck measurement) ***
 X Small  35cm  30-38cm  30cm
 Small  40cm  38-45cm  32cm
 C1 *  40cm  45-55cm  40cm
 C2 *  45cm  50-60cm  45cm
 C3 *  40cm  55-65cm  50cm
 Medium  48cm  45-52cm  35cm
 Intermediate  54cm  50-58cm  38cm
 Large  60cm  55-65cm  46cm
 Large Wide **  60cm  75-85cm  46cm
 Large Deep **  65cm  65-75cm  46cm
 X Large  70cm  65-80cm  55cm
 XX Large  90cm  80-90cm  56cm

* Sizes C1, C2 and C3 have been designed to suit breed shapes such as (but not exclusive to) French Bulldogs, Pugs and Boston Terriers.

** Large Wide is suitable for stockier bodies (e.g. Lab) while Large Deep is suitable for deep chests (e.g. Vizsla, Pointer, Dalmatian).

*** Please note that the neck hole measurement given above is NOT the dog's neck measurement - it is the size of the actual neck hole of the garment. The neck hole is generally about 10% larger than a dog's actual neck measurement. This is useful information if you have a dog with a wide neck and you are ordering a standard sized garment.

Bespoke sizes

If you are ordering a bespoke garment (made especially to fit your dog if they do not fit any of the standard sizes above), please choose a bespoke length from the size drop-down box and then enter your dog's actual measurements in the boxes provided. The maker will use those measurements to make a coat that fits your dog. Approx. 10% is added to the neck measurement so that it sits comfortably at the neck and fits over the dog's head.

Please measure carefully and state your dog's measurements in centimetres (cm).

Returns or exchanges

Must be returned in the sealed bag provided and still in its soft and supple state. Try the coat on your dog. If it does not fit please fold it back up and put it straight back into the sealed bag. Coats should not be soaked or allowed to dry out if they are going to be returned or exchanged. Thank you.

Returns or exchanges cannot be accepted for bespoke coats (where you have supplied measurements and the coat has been made to fit your dog).

Tuesday, 21 August 2018  |  Jackie

Communication was spot on. Delivery was very quick. Product appears to be well made. I can not state if it worked or not because I havenít had the opportunity to try it out yet the English weather has changed but I have every confidence that it will do the job.

Brilliant cooling coat
Monday, 13 August 2018  |  Louise

Really pleased with the cooling coat. The material is thinner than I'd expected meaning that it is really flexible & my dog seems to find it extremely comfortable. Some cooling coats seem to be quite thick with foam-like material whereas this is more like a synthetic chamois. Stays cool for hours once wetted & easy to see when it starts to dry out & needs re-wetting. We needed a bespoke fit & it's perfect! Thank you.

Bespoke order
Saturday, 11 August 2018  |  Karen

I'm very pleased with the Thermlow cooling coat that I ordered for my Rough Collie. I had to order a bespoke coat as his large 'mane' and deep chest made the standard sizing too small to fit him without a struggle.The help and reassurance that I had from customer services, and the person that actually makes the coats, was excellent. The coat arrived 10 days later, and it fits him very comfortably and securely. Within a very short space of time he had forgotten that he had it on and was happily running around playing football, except that this time he didn't get too hot and bothered. It has been a godsend in this very hot weather, and is well made and easy to use. Thank-you D for Dog!

A must for hot weather!
Saturday, 4 August 2018  |  Roger

Excellent product for the hot weather. My Vizsla even wears it in the garden to keep cool and his level of panting has reduced considerably. Oh and it looks good on unlike some doggy coats on the market

Great coat
Friday, 3 August 2018  |  Antoinette

Great quality coat and has good cooling qualities. Unfortunately the one for my dog is a little short. Be careful with measurements when ordering. I could have returned it but I forgot to follow instructions for returning and let it dry out. It will still serve purpose.

Cool coat
Wednesday, 1 August 2018  |  Jane

We phoned and ordered a be-spoke Cool Coat for our Border Terrier . The advice we received was excellent - lots of time taking getting the measurements just right - I was worried ( but need not have been ) about the size, especially measuring the head hole - the advice was excellent - lots of repeated measurements and I also sent a photo to help ( which wasn't asked for as the person making is very experienced I am told!) It was made in the time given , arrived well packaged with clear instructions.

We have used it once - last week in the Lake District and as per instructions, took it off the dog, wetted it again with water that we were carrying, and did this a few times on the 6 hour walk . Our dog was not reluctant to wear it - much keener to wear this than his winter coat - and I believe he benefitted enormously in the hot weather. I like the design - with the front being covered as well, unlike some other coats which can be purchased . We are new to this but very happy with the coat and the service provided . Thank you

Thank you for the review Jane and I am so glad it is helping your dog. I just wanted to say that to top the coat up it is easier to simply pour some water over the coat :-)
