How to keep your dog cool
Work in progress. Please scroll down to see the videos. Other products coming soon.
If you find that you have a really hot dog that needs the heat drawing out of it, or the weather turns hot and you need a quick fix - consider buying a large synthetic chamois car cleaning cloth. Soak it in water and leave it on the dog. As the water evaporates, it will draw the heat out of the dog.

Once the pad starts to become less effective, simply rest it by keeping any weight off of it, and then it will be good as new again

Another great product is the Chillax cooling pad. Simply place it in the dog's pet carrier, or just leave it on the floor. The dog's own weight and movement makes the Chillax cooler than the surrounding area. There is no freezing or electrical supply.
I had Alfie lay on this Chillax pad for a few moments whilst I took these photos. Once he'd moved, there were dark areas where the pad had been cooling him. These patches soon recovered.
Standing on the pad bear footed shows how quickly they do cool whatever has laid on the pad.
