How Coolvio® Technology Works


Just imagine the comfort your active dog will enjoy in the shade-like environment of a dog shirt where sunlight, including 98% of all UVA and UVB light, is converted into healthy red and near-infrared light!

Light Therapy

The bArctic Light Therapy Dog Shirt converts sunlight into healthy, red and near-infrared light through the science of laser physics and optics. The fabric then emits these healthy wavelengths of light — the same light that veterinarians use in laser treatments for dogs to speed wound healing, reduce joint and muscle pain and inflammation, reduce anxiety, and much more. Research studies have shown these wavelengths of light provide the solar energy that mitochondria of the cells in mammals need for optimal functionality. Coolvio fabric is wearable wellness, resulting in a wide range of health benefits.


Works When Dry

By converting sunlight and emitting healthy, red and near-infrared light, the energy of the sun is released from our Coolvio® fabric — instead of being trapped. The build up of the sun’s energy is what creates heat in other fabric — and dog fur! No longer does your dog have to endure the discomfort of being wet all day to stay cool. Our Coolvio® fabric doesn’t require water like other dog cooling shirts that rely solely on water evaporation. So this cooling shade effect lasts all day long, without the weight or hassle of water!

Works When Wet

Coolvio® fabric technology still works if the bArctic gets wet and stays lightweight, stretchy and maintains fit.  For an additional pop of coolness, your pup can also enjoy the natural cooling effect of evaporation with only a few ounces of water -- so your dog doesn't have to be soaking wet and can stay comfortable all day!  

Sun Protection

The bArctic provides protection for your dog from sunburn by recycling 98% of UVA and UVB light into healthy, red and near-infrared light — unlike other sun protection products on the market that block out the light that your dog needs to stay healthy.


Durable, Lightweight, Breathable, Stretchy + Comfy

Our patented Coolvio® 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 watersports activities; 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!
