bArctic Waterless Cooling Dog Shirt with Healthy Red-Light Therapy
Keeps dog fur up to +30°F cooler — with added benefit of patented healthy red-light infused fabric technology
“Living in SE Florida is so hot and Biggie gets overheated so easily. We usually have to stop to let home 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!!!”

“Even mild overheating is considered a veterinary emergency.” — Dr. Colleen Smith, founder of Chattanooga Holistic Animal Institute
Colleen Smith, DVM, CVA, CVCP and founder of Chattanooga Holistic Veterinary Institute and President-elect to the board for the AHVMA (American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association) and Courtney Holscher, DVM share their thoughts about the bArctic 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.“
“This is an incredible product!”
“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. In the sunny spots you could feel the difference in the temperature of her body. She normally goes into a creek, lays down and you can’t get her out but today she was hardly interested in the water and didn’t lay down when we took drink breaks. It was amazing and even my hiking partner noticed a difference. This is an incredible product!”

“Wow does this work!”
“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”

How Our Patented Technology Works
Unlike other fabric and your dog‘s fur, our patented fabric does NOT trap and absorb the sun‘s energy that creates heat — rather transforms it into healthy red and near-infrared light that creates a cooling effect ... all through the cutting-edge science of laser physics and optics. Our special fabric does not heat up because it converts and emits the light, releasing the energy.
Red and Near-Infrared Light Therapy
Just imagine the comfort your active dog will enjoy in the shade-like environment of a dog shirt where sunlight, including 98% of all harmful UVA and UVB light, is converted into healthy red and near-infrared light!? This is the same healthy light used in laser therapy by veterinarians to reduce joint and muscle pain and inflammation. Studies have shown this wavelength of light provides an energy boost to the cells, which improves cellular functionality and the result is a wide range of health benefits.
No Water Required
No longer does your dog have to endure the discomfort of being wet all day to stay cool! Our special fabric doesn‘t require water like other dog cooling shirts that rely on water evaporation. So this cooling shade effect lasts all day long, without the weight of water! However, if your bArctic does get wet, the technology still works and your pup can also enjoy the natural cooling effect of evaporation.
Durable, Lightweight, Breathable, Stretchy + Comfy
Our patented fabric was made for durability and comfort. The fabric was designed to emulate the toughness of rugged adventure-wear engineered to protect the human skin during rigorous activity; we married that durability with a lightweight, stretchy fabric design for your dog‘s comfort. The chest mesh fabric is made to meet military specifications and also has antimicrobial and moisture-wicking properties. The bArctic shirt fabric is lightweight, breathable, stretchy and washes easily too!
Frequently Asked Questions
How does red and near-infrared light therapy help my dog?
Studies have shown this wavelength of light provides an energy boost to the cells, which improves cellular functionality and the result is a wide range of health benefits. This is the same healthy light used in laser therapy by veterinarians to reduce joint and muscle pain and inflammation. Agility dog owner, Veterinarian Courtney Holscher, says her dog 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.”
Can the bArctic prevent sunburns?
Yes. Our special patented fabric converts 98% of the harmful UVA and UVB light that causes sunburn into healthy red and near-infrared light. So, most of the sunburn causing light doesn’t reach your dog’s skin. Bonus: no messy sunscreen and our fabric lets the healthy light in (see previous question)!
Can the bArctic get wet?
Yes! Bonus — the cooling effect of our patented technology is improved through natural evaporation if the bArctic gets wet (but it's not necessary)!
Will anything worn over the bArctic impact the effectiveness of the fabric technology (like a harness, patches, life jacket, or decorative paints, etc)?
Yes. Our patented fabric technology uses sunlight to work. Anything that blocks sunlight from reaching our fabric will hinder the effectiveness. Harnesses made of straps that do not cover a large portion of the bArctic’s patented fabric will not noticeably impact the effectiveness. (Note: Prior to use with your bArctic, inspect your harness for worn or rough areas that could damage the shirt.)
How easy is it to get the bArctic on and off my dog?
We’ve had similar questions from people who have tried our pilot bArctic shirts. They have been pleasantly surprised by how easy it is because the fabric is stretchy. We thought it would be helpful to see this in action. So we reached out to one of our models — please check out our Easy On — Easy Off! video below. As you can tell, George is a senior dog and getting the bArctic on and off of him is a snap!
My dog doesn’t like wearing clothing or never has, will they like wearing the bArctic?
Many dog owners had the same question during our research and development stage and found that their dog loves wearing the bArctic! Please refer to the testimonial by Wolfie above.
