Hot Day, Chilly Buddy
Recently as a spectator at the Canadian Agility Nationals, I got to watch athletic dogs and people deal with sweltering heat while participating in vigorous outdoor sports. We all know how prone dogs are to overheating, so protection is always a great concern for dog owners. I noticed that a lot of the canine competitors at Nationals were wearing Chillybuddy cooling jackets (above). This interested me because I had just gotten one for Miles, but we had yet to try it out. It is always reassuring to see the professionals using sports gear with obvious good results.

Last weekend I put on his new Chillybuddy cooling jacket, and ventured out in the heat with Miles. In the daytime. For the first time on such a walk he did not flop down once, which is his normal routine when outside in warm weather (photo reference here). “Emma, I am dying, why are you punishing me this way (FLOP) Fetch the chariot, stat!” Not this time. We were actually able to go for a nice hot weather walk! In comfort! We also got a lot of compliments on the space-age look of the jacket, which is due to the sun-reflecting aluminum material that the shell is made from. The inside is lined with a webbed cotton that can additionally be dipped in water to up the cooling power of the airflow the jacket creates.

The airflow inside the jacket seemed to feel particularly good on the car ride home with the window open… Ahh nice cool breeze!

Thanks Chillybuddy!
** Update: I officially am in love with this jacket. It really, really works. Miles can and will go out with me during the day now. It can be purchased with free shipping worldwide at Clean Run. As a reference point, a Welsh terrier like Miles fits a size XS.

    he looks so smug in the car– I'm too sexy for my jacket…

    And I do NOT look like a baked potato. In fact, it's pretty cool in here!

    I read your comment to Miles and his ears perked up. "Baked potater? What you say there?"
