Chillybuddy Cooling Jacket Vest - Casual Style

0.50 LBS

    Our Chillybuddy™ Cooling Jacket Vest - Casual Style was created for a rescued Australian Shepherd named Buddy who loved outdoor treks but disliked the intense heat of direct sun.

    SUCCESSFULLY FIELD TESTED in the mountain terrain of Wyoming & hunting fields of Nebraska, by FEMA Urban SAR Dogs during Katrina and on the 2017 expedition in search of Amelia Earhart.


    • Works from the moment you put it on your pet
    • Shields from direct sunlight (no more sunburned skin)
    • Protects coats of show dogs from sun bleaching
    • On a 90° F day, Chillybuddy can lower the coat temperature almost 30%
    • Soak in water before use & it lowers coat temperature by a further 20 degrees
    • Especially useful for breeds with long-hair, dark coats & dogs prone to Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome


    • Outer layer constructed of durable, highly reflective & visible, Aluminet greenhouse solar shade cloth (reflects light & heat away from dogs body)
    • Casual style for dogs NOT engaging in rugged outdoor activity (see our sport version for working dogs who need chest protection)
    • Lightweight, making it ideal for boating/water activities
    • Cotton mesh lining for air flow (also acts an an insulator, blocking infrared heat from being reflected by the outer fabric back to the dog's body)
    • Soft, comfortable stretchy belly strap
    • Adjustable velcro closures on tummy & neck
    • Leash hole & D-Ring on Super Petite to Small sizes allowing it to function as a harness

    • You must measure your dog & compare those measurements to our size chart
    • If your measurements don't match a standard size, YOU NEED A CUSTOM (ie neck is one standard size & girth is a different standard size)
    • Bulldogs, Pugs, Teacups, & dogs with unusual neck or girth sizes or extra long back lengths NEED CUSTOM SIZES
    • Returns because of wrong size selection cost you money & your pet is without heat protection during the exchange, so BE SURE TO MEASURE ACCURATELY

      I have an older dog that has spinal arthritis. When she is out in direct sunlight the heat from the sun effects how she feels. This jacket reflects back the sunlight and heat and she is able to walk a lot further than she has been.

      There is a definite difference in the temperature on her head verses her back. I should have purchased this years ago for her. (could you make one with a hood?)

      I recommend this for dogs of any color not just dark ones.

      She does look like she's about to walk on the moon, but she is so much happier being outside.

    2. Super effective!  star rating

      I love this jacket - it truly keeps the dogs way cooler on a hot sunny day! I am way more comfortable walking the dogs in warmer temps when they're wearing these.
