MAXIMIZE HEALTH AND COMFORT
Coolvio® Patented Fabric Emits Healthy Red and Near-Infrared Light. This is the same light used by veterinarians in laser therapy to reduce pain and inflammation, speed wound healing, increase energy and performance, reduce anxiety, and boost optimal health.
The new technology in Coolvio® fabric creates a microclimate that acts as a cooling shirt in the hot sun, reduces risk of overheating, provides UV protection and a layer of warmth in cool temps. This allows your dog or horse to comfortably spend more time outside year-round, soaking up healthy rays of sunlight known to be essential for optimal health.

Works When Dry As A Cooling Shirt In The Hot Sun - Up to +30°F Cooler
After one hour outside in the sun, our bArctic Light Therapy Dog Shirt kept Audrey's fur +30°F degrees cooler than in direct sunlight without using any water. A moment after removing her bArctic, Audrey’s fur heated up over 30 degrees. The bArctic creates a micro-climate to help keep your dog comfortable.
With bArctic (98.6°F)

Dr. Colleen Smith, DVM, CVA, CVCP and founder of Chattanooga Holistic Veterinary Institute and President to the board for the AHVMA (American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association) and Courtney Holscher, DVM share their thoughts about the bArctic Light Therapy + Cooling Dog Shirt.
Dr. Holscher says her agility dog, Ella, trains outside in the heat in her bArctic and “it really helps keep her cool, and improves her times, helps her to not get overheated and not as tired as quickly.”

Made for Easy Clean-up
Ian gets a walk or hike every day for 3-4 miles. The bArctic shirt allows him to do so in comfort even when it is over 80s in the summertime here in Las Vegas
Stewie is an Albino Pekinese mix, so the "double whammy" of potential problems. His new shirt kept him cool and protected from the sun on a quick trip to the beach. I don't have to worry about him getting over-heated, since he is brachycephalic breed. As an added bonus, he was super handsome in his new shirt. We love our Barctic shirt!
After spending the first 11 years of her life in Canada, Lexie was accustomed to extreme cold temperatures but the Carolina summers didn’t allow us to spend much outdoor time with her. This summer at 14 years old we could finally go out with her on the boat and know she would be comfortable and protected in her Coolvio shirt.
Living in SE Florida is so hot and Biggie gets overheated so easily. We usually have to stop to let him lay in the grass for a few minutes every block, in addition to water breaks. Tonight was the first time we only stopped for our water breaks and Biggie led the way for the full 45 min walk thanks to his new Coolvio shirt! I have no idea how it works, but it definitely WORKS! Biggie and I THANK YOU!!!
Chewie gets sunburnt so easily, and with the summer being so hot, this has been a great addition to Chewie's wardrobe. Keeping him cool and protected for walks, beach days and porch lounges!
One of Amber’s favorite activities is to hang out on the porch and enjoy the sun while watching the neighbors pass by. But since it gets very hot in the summers, she usually cannot enjoy the porch as much as she wants, she gets too hot after about 20 minutes and wants to go back inside. She has tried bArctic a few times now and she can stay on the porch for about 40-50 minutes without getting too hot or tired. It is awesome to see her enjoying the sun with us and feel comfortable...thanks to bArctic!
He likes to wear his shirt all the time. Bought it to cool him down around the pool. But as you can see he loves wearing it inside too. I noticed how much calmer and more relaxed he is when wearing the shirt.
Kona lives in his bArctic shirt! Being solid black, he heats up really quickly even when the sun isn't very bright or he's not super active. With his bArctic shirt on he can be outdoors, hike and play ball longer than without the shirt. And I have a new degree of confidence whenever we're out that he WON'T overheat before I realize it. I love the colors-I can always spot Kona in his bright orange bArctic!
Fozzie is my service dog - she goes EVERY WHERE with me! Winter turned into the “dog days of summer” over night and Fozzie’s body had no time to adjust to the extreme temperatures, especially on a tennis court And I play a lot of tennis! Her water-based cooling vest was inadequate and I went searching for something better. bArtic by Coolvio was a life saver - a real game changer- and made a real difference! It legitimately keeps Fozzie cooler! I’m so thankful their product was available and look forward to Coolvio developing new products. Let’s hear it for the Girls!
This shirt is perfect for Stella keeping her cool at the beach in the Florida summer heat. I highly recommend this product.
Summer has new meaning now that we can get out and do things without overheating!
I would give it a resounding 5++++. The shirt has been amazing for my little brat. I have bought and tried almost every cooling shirt on the market and this is by far the best I have ever seen. The attached photo is after 30 minutes outside in Texas at 105 degrees. Very little panting and much more comfortable. I am so glad to have found you on Kickstarter. After Betty Boop was diagnosed with onset collapsing trachea, I have been concerned about the heat more than usual. It has been a lifesaver and we are constantly stopped and asked what she is wearing.
We have been very pleased with the shirt. Teddy wears it on his walks and also when we are playing in the backyard during the afternoon hours. When I put it on, he knows we are going outside.
On a scale from 1-5, I'd give you a 7! We did a short test hike today, 7 miles on a partly shady/partly sunny trail in 80 degree (real feel 90) and Jinx was like a different dog. It was amazing and even my hiking partner noticed a difference. This is an incredible product!
Would give 6 stars! I have to say I didn’t think I’d be leaving a review after one run. But wow does this work! We have only been running 3 miles a day because it’s August in Florida and today with the Coolvio coat we not only went 4 miles but he didn’t pull me into the shade, didn’t try to roll in wet grass and his water consumption was half! I am so impressed and it was well worth the money. Also, his harness didn’t impede on the coat at all.
