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 chamois material gives amazing cooling, indoors or out. Simply activate the jacket with ordinary tap water and let it work its magic.

Dog cool coat Thermlow

ThermLOW is the best cool coat for dogs on the market, in our opinion, and here's why. The chamois-type 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!

Provides relief from the effects of heat in hot weather and during or after exercise. Perfect for walks, travelling and activities. Can even be used indoors. Specially designed to keep your dog cool in situations where they are at risk of feeling hot or overheating.

Your dog will feel comfortable and cool. No heavy materials, chemicals or bulky gels - just a special lightweight absorbent material activated by water. These cooling coats are soft, light, comfortable to wear and 100% safe. You will be amazed at how well they work.

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.

Cool coat use and care

Soak in water from the cold tap for a few minutes, until soaked through. Lightly squeeze out any excess water (do not wring), place your dog’s head through the vest and secure with the Velcro straps. Top up with water whenever it starts to dry out.

Don't try to unfold, unfasten or flatten the coat when it is dry. Soak it first to soften the material.

If using every day, you can store it slightly damp in the sealable bag provided. Otherwise, hang to dry.

If necessary, gently hand wash or machine wash at 30 degrees. It is best to fasten the Velcro first to stop it sticking to other pieces of fabric. Do not tumble dry. Do not use fabric softeners or conditioners.

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.

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.

Head Hole - To check if the garment's head hole is suitable for your dog, please make the appropriate sized loop with your tape measure, place it over your dog's head and check that it sits comfortably below their neck line.

Neck (bespoke sizes only) - If you are also taking a neck measurement for a bespoke size, measure the circumference of the neck at the widest part.

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

ThermLOW must be returned within 14 days 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).

Dog Cool Coat
Tuesday, 11 August 2020  |  David

Excellent product, made to measure and fits perfectly. Works as described in product information and has certainly kept the dog cooler and more comfortable in recent hot weather. His panting has been greatly reduced. Good quality. Good value.

Made to measure cool jacket
Thursday, 30 July 2020  |  Tracy

What a great coat. I have bought a few cool coats over the years but this stands out from the others. With it being made to measure it fits like a glove. It seems to keep moisture for longer than others Iíve tried and if you put your hand underneath you can feel how cool the coat is and when extra wetting is needed. Alfie looks very smart in his new cool jacket.

Thermlow coat
Wednesday, 29 July 2020  |  Stacey

This product is great! The fit for my dog was fantastic and bang on the measurements I sent. It instantly cools my dog down. As he is 14 itís hard to keep him cool during hot weather but this coat has helped with that problem and helped keep him cool during hot days/nights. Definitely recommend!

Cooling vest
Saturday, 11 July 2020  |  Sue

This is a real life saver. I bought the Large Deep for my Large Munsterlander and it fits perfectly. She suffers badly in the heat, indoors and out, as she is 15 1/2 and has laryngeal paralysis. It has been such a boon when she starts panting in the house we just pop it on and in minutes she is so much better. Use it outside too and it's great. Would highly recommend.

Brilliant service and a well made cooling vest for my cocker spaniel.

I discovered D for Dog a bit late as I was searching for cooling vests for my cocker spaniel as we are about to embark on a move from Germany to Italy this summer. I was concerned about the order arriving on time, especially as German postal service is terrible at best, so I asked about the option of using a courier service to ensure that the order arrived on time and D for Dog agreed to using this service as Royal Mail is typically used for deliveries; Royal Mail of course is reliable, but my concern was with postal service here, so I am grateful for their flexibility and they deserve five stars for their service; they have a chat line as well that allows for immediate responses to questions I had on several occasions before making the purchase, then subsequently, my request to use a courier service, but it was just a matter of seconds when I received a friendly and useful reply from D for Dog contact, then she liaised with the vest maker to arrange for courier service, which took very little time to do.

I would also like to note that for the cooling vest I bought for my cocker spaniel, D for Dog offers bespoke-made vests. I bought a standard cooling vest from someone else before leaving Scotland a few years ago, but the fit was a bit tight as my spaniel has a wide girth, but I provided the measurements and the vest fits perfectly.

I will certainly turn to D for Dog for future purchases as I like to support small British businesses wherever I live; I am opposed to using amazon unless out of desperation, and thanks to D for Dog's great service, I was able to purchase my spaniel's vest from them and not from amazon, and support a small British company that deserves support, especially as the cooling vest is made in Britain. I assume the same for all their products, so please buy from D for Dog!
Thanks again!
