The Inspiration for Coolvio®
our bArctic Light Therapy Dog Shirt

Above all else — food, sleep and even cuddles, fetch is what Audrey lives for. She’s full of energy and happy to play all day! It’s hard to wear her out! Except in the heat of the sun at the beach on April 28, 2019. After a few minutes of jumping for a frisbee, she just couldn’t take the heat and was headed for the shade, panting and in search of water!

Frustrated and concerned, her mom reached for her Lumiton shirt that has the same amazing Coolvio® technology (but for humans!) to put on Audrey to see if she would get some relief. Almost immediately, Audrey was back to her normal self and played non-stop the rest of the day – as you can see in this photo!

Astonished, she immediately contacted the Lumiton founders and soon, out of her love for animals, Coolvio® was born!

“It was a total game changer!” ~ Linda Coad’s, Audrey’s Mom & Founder of Coolvio®


We found a solution to beat the heat and have more playtime outside with our dog. We want you to have the same experience!
