This works great for our American Akita. He's 92lbs and 1 year old. We removed the additional snaps around the body. I love the orange color and it helps me get control of him if he goes to fast. He knows he's going out when we grab it. Ice pack works great.

It's a great product and we have owned about 3 over the last so many yrs and had them on 2 dogs. They dont seem to mind them and the product looks like photo here on amazon and does what it advertises. I would highly recommend product. Just adding make sure that you measure your dog to get right size for them.

A lot of cooling coats are designed so the cooling part is on the dogs back...not exactly the most efficient way to cool down a hot dog. This one targets the most important areas, the chest and underbelly. If a dog is hot, the best way to cool them down is by cooling their chest and belly (main arteries). This design does exactly that! My 100 pound french mastiff doesn't cool down very quickly, and it's hard to watch him panting like mad for an hour just to cool himself after a little bit of play. This vest is perfect!! He cools down in half the time :)

I purchased this for my double-coated pug to keep him cool on walks in hot humid weather . Ideally, I wish the part of the harness that is closest to his tail could be tightened a bit more so it would hug his body more closely. I realize my pug is the exception to the usual 'baked-potato' body...he gets lots of exercise and eats weight management kibble with green beans to stay svelte. I had considered ordering the next size down which would have provided the closer fit at the waist, but his chest is very broad and the extra small harness just wouldn't work, even with extension clips. I plan to take the harness over the winter to my local shoe maker to shorten the waist straps just a little. Aside from that, the product works well. He's cool as a cucumber on walks during those hot days!

Was lucky to have posted on their Facebook page to ask what size my 25 lb. French Bulldog should wear. They suggested a Size Small and it fits perfectly. I also use this without the pax as my regular harness as I find it's well made and quite stylish too . Works great with the cumfy pax but as we live in the Philippines where it's usually hot and humid, the pax doesn't last as long as I thought it would, it stays cold for about an hour,which is better than nothing on a really hot summer day. I still highly recommend this product though, without the cumfy pax it's still a very useful, well fitting harness.

My dog has occasional seizures because of epilepsy. This is perfect for cooling him down after a seizure. It would be great for any short faced breed that is more prone to heat stroke as well. Many cooling vests work after you soak them in water for 10 minutes or more. While that would work well if you are taking your dog for a walk or run in heat, it won't work for my purposes when my dog needs cooling down immediately.

I bought this for a Parson Russell Terrier who loves to walk and is getting along at 11 years old. I have read that some people have had difficulty with sizing but this was absolutely not my experience. I went to the trouble of exchanging emails with Kumfy Tailz' personnel beforehand to obtain a level of comfort about the device before purchasing it and as a result I have a harness that fits this long bodied and legged version of the breed really well. It's important to know the weight of your dog as well as it's measurements to ensure you get the right fit.
I have not bought any additional freezer packs, I haven't found the need. I simply pull the pack out from its pocket in the harness bib after the walk and return it to the freezer so it's ready for the next walk. It's really well made from quality material and I have no hesitation in recommending this product to dog owners looking to bring a little more comfort and enjoyment to their dog's life on summer walks.

I bought this for my standard poodle, he is solid black in color. We live in Florida. During the summer I can only take him for maybe a 5-10 minute walk because he would get overheated and vomit.
This cooling vest helps tremendously! I can definitely see a difference, he is not panting so heavily and when we get home he is not exhausted from the heat. He is much more comfortable. I am going to buy extra of the freeze packs so that we can keep them in a cooler on ice while at the beach and switch them out.
I recommend this to all of my friends.

I LOVE THIS!!!! I wouldn't be without this product, it has saved my dog's life!
My dog has a seizure disorder & this keeps him cool in the summer heat when outside.
In the winter, I toss it in the microwave for a few seconds and it keeps him warm during those freezing days.
I would not be without this, it truly saves my dog's life.
Love it! Thank you!
