How a Dog Cooling Harness Works

By Canada Pooch on Aug 2, 2023

As summer heat reaches record highs, our pups are susceptible to overheating, which can lead to discomfort and even pose health risks. Enter the Chill Seeker Cooling Harness — a harness designed to keep our pups cool and comfortable in the hottest of temperatures. In this section, we'll take a closer look at how a cooling harness works, providing a deeper understanding of the science behind its cooling capabilities. 


Evaporative Cooling Technology: 

The Canada Pooch dog cooling harness was designed with innovative technology using evaporative cooling. The evaporative cooling effect is used to help lower a dog's body temperature, much like sweating cools our own bodies. The cooling harness is made of a special fabric that promotes evaporation, and the process begins once the harness is soaked with water. 


Absorbent and Breathable Fabric: 

The key component to the effectiveness of a dog cooling harness lies in its choice of materials. Our harnesses are crafted from absorbent and breathable fabrics, combining multiple layers to optimize the cooling process. The outer layer is designed to repel heat and moisture, while the inner layers are highly absorbent, capable of retaining a substantial amount of water. 


Activating the Cooling Effect: 

To activate the cooling effect of the harness, pet parents must thoroughly wet with cold water the harness and wring out access water before putting it on their pups. The absorbent fabric soaks up the cold water, which then gradually evaporates when exposed to the surrounding air. This evaporation process draws heat away from the dog's body, effectively cooling them down. 


Temperature Regulation: 

One of the remarkable aspects of a dog cooling harness is its ability to provide a regulated cooling effect. As the ambient temperature rises, the harness continuously releases moisture through evaporation, maintaining a cooling sensation for the dog. The harness ensures that the cooling is gradual and not sudden, preventing any discomfort for the pup. 


Comfortable and Non-Restrictive Design: 

A well-designed cooling harness is not only effective in cooling down the dog but also ensures that it is comfortable to wear. Our cooling harness is lightweight and comes in various sizes to accommodate different breeds. The designs are tailored to allow a full range of motion, so the dog can move freely without any hindrance. Reference our size guide to find the right fit for your pup.  



Pet parents can easily reactivate the cooling effect by re-wetting the harness when it starts to dry out.  


The dog cooling harness is a true lifesaver during the hot summer months. By using the power of evaporative cooling, these harnesses keep our pups comfortable and safe even in the heat.
