Have two shirts!

Rustler has a mint green bArctic shirt for the mountains and has his orange bArctic shirt for the beach!

Ready For More!

Harley is not the most athletic dog and does not go for long walks. But he did 3 miles in his bArctic and was still ready for more!

Harley is a superstar! We look forward to seeing more of Harley in his future adventures!

Game changer

We love our BArctic coolvio shirt! It makes hiking in a muggy, humid environment safer and more fun for Remy and gives me peace of mind. We can comfortably hike without being too nervous about lack of shade and the bright design keeps her easy to catch in view with the bright orange. We love our bArctic!

Thanks Patricia for sharing your wonderful picture of Remy and your experience with the bArctic!  Remy looks great in her shirt.  Other customers have also mentioned that our  Coolvio orange has helped them spot their dog quickly.   Please keep us updated on Remy's adventures.

Ginger Bear getting some relief from AZ heat!!

We live in Arizona and it’s hot here part of the year! I heard about this product and read the reviews and did my research. Impressed!! Thought this could help our dog for two reasons. First due to warm Arizona temps and also she was recently diagnosed with IBD and we noticed her medicine makes her a tad bit warmer. So she can wear this inside also on the days she might need it. Thanks bARtic!!!

Hi Sharon! We are thrilled that the bArctic is helping her stay cool in HOT Arizona. Ginger Bear is a cutie and we can’t wait to see more of her. Thanks so much for sharing!

Relief from hot Florida sun for senior dog

I was thrilled with how Pierre reacted while wearing his Coolvio bArtic shirt. The challenge was our last camping trip. Normally in the hot afternoon, our walks are very short. This time he was able to complete long walks and was not so exhausted from the heat when were we done. This bArtic shirt was of great assistance to our 11 year standard poodle! Best purchase Mom has made in a long time! :)

Hi Debra! It was great reading about your experience with the bArctic. It is wonderful that you and Pierre were able to spend more quality time together on your camping trip and walks. We can't wait to hear more about Pierre's outdoor adventures. Take care!

Worth it!

Being a French Bulldog my girl has a tough time staying cool in this South Carolina heat. I used to feel bad taking her with me to the lake or going for walks in the middle of the day because she would get so hot. There is a noticeable difference when she wears this shirt. She no longer pants heavily and seems quite comfortable going on any adventure at any time of day. This was a worthwhile purchase and I would recommend it to anyone considering making this investment in their dog’s health. Also, she gets lots of compliments for being so fashionable!

Hi Kayla!

We appreciate you sharing your experience! We are happy to hear that the bArctic has made such a positive impact for you and Stella Louise. She is a cutie and looks great in her shirt. Please keep us updated on Stella Louise.

Fireworks don't worry Tater now!

My Golden Retriever, Tater, has been terrified by fireworks since the day I rescued him. Every time he heard fireworks, Tater would pant and pace and try to hide, not settling down till the fireworks stopped. I was not looking forward to the July 4th fireworks, but remembered reading that the bArctic can also help with anxiety. On 4th of July, I slipped the bArctic onto Tater early in the afternoon and kept it on him. When night approached and the fireworks began, I watched to see what would happen. To my surprise, Tater laid down on the floor and acted like nothing was going on. He stayed quiet the entire time, and I could not believe it. I know this shirt is supposed to keep dogs cool, but, in this circumstance, I sure did have one "cool" dog. Just thought you would like to know. Tater asked me to thank you for his shirt. So THANK YOU!

Hi Sandy!

Thank you for sharing Tater's experience about how the bArctic helped with his fireworks anxiety. It make us happy to know that Tater was relaxed, calm and not panting. We are glad that the bArctic made a HUGE difference for Tater and for you. Please keep us posted on Tater.

Diva Approved! 🤩

Chanel is sensitive to the heat and burns easily in the sun. The bArctic shirt really has made all the difference with walks in the summer. It keeps her cool and protects her from harmful UV rays all the while soaking up the health benefits of light therapy! I also love that it is lightweight and you do not have to soak it in water for the cooling effect.

Hi Kristi! We love hearing that the bArctic is helping the quality of life for pups like Chanel who is able to enjoy her walks in the summer. We also love hearing that the bArctic is making things easier for owners, too! Enjoy your walks!

Keeps my girl on the go!

Snaxx loves to hike, but NC summers are hard on her. Thanks to Coolvio she can still get her exercise during the warmer months, all while staying cool and comfortable. Snaxx loves her bArctic!!🐾

Hi Lauren! This is the kind of news we love to hear! It is so important for dogs to get exercise. Having dogs able to stay active outdoors in the warmer weather, while staying cool and comfortable, is why we made the bArctic. Thanks so much for sharing your experience! Snaxx is a cutie pie!

Kept my pup cool

My pup has been training for his first backpacking trip. Since we're in warm Southern California, I wanted to do everything I could to keep him cool. I saw someone post this on Facebook and thought I'd give it a try. My pup has worn it on a few hikes and his backpacking trip and it definitely seemed to help.

Hi Tammie! Thanks for your wonderful feedback.  Your pup is adorable!  We are glad that he had a great backpacking trip.  Seeing is believing, and we are delighted that you noticed that your pup was cool and comfortable.  Please keep us posted on his future trips.  We love seeing pictures!

Five Stars! SUPER! 🐾

We compete in canine sports, and needed a lightweight, cooling item that didn't require water and allows movement of the dog. These are just what we were looking for!

Thanks Cassi for your review! Zendora is amazing. We are happy that the bArctic is what you need to help this powerhouse pup compete! We can't wait to see more photos of her.

It’s a win!

It’s been really hot and humid here so I’ve been looking for cooling shirts/vests to keep my furbaby Chewie cool during the summer. We ordered the coolvio shirt and immediately fell in love with it! I spray water on it to keep him extra cool and it has been working. I also love that the shirt converts harmful uv rays into healthy infrared lights which was a huge reason why I also went with this brand compared to others.

Hi Jean! Chewie is absolutely adorable! We appreciate you sharing your experience with the bArctic. Our goal was to help dogs stay cooler, more comfortable, and have more energy, and we are happy that we can do that for you and Chewie. Please keep us posted on Chewie's outdoor fun!

Great Shirt!

Love the Coolvio shirt. It is adorable, fits well and doesn't get in the way of my dog hiking and rock climbing. It appears to keep him cool and works even better when wet

Hi Jessica! Thank you for your wonderful review. We are delighted that you love the bArctic and that it is helping Spock stay cool on his fun outdoor adventures. Please stay in touch and we look forward to seeing Spock living the Coolvio Life!

AMAZED how it kept him cool and comfortable

Ran the US Canine Biathlon with my dog, Ace. It definitely worked. Heat was not an issue at all even with running the 4+miles.

Hi Melissa! You and Ace make a great team. Thanks for letting us know about your experience. We are glad that you had the chance to see how great the bArctic works!

Amazing shirts!

Just wanted to share a couple of pictures of our doggies having fun at the beach with their Coolvio Barctic Dog Shirt. We were supporters in the Kickstarter stage and now that we adopted our 2nd dog, this was one of our first purchases. They were amazing. Were very happy with the shirts!

Hi Paola! We are glad that Chino and Leo not only have each other, but their bArctics, so they can enjoy as much beach time together as possible!

Keeps my dog running

It's getting hot in my area and the Coolvio shirt has made a big difference in my dog getting his exercise. He likes wearing it and runs more when he has it on. Love the product!

Hi Linda! Your comments are music to our ears. We are thrilled to know that the bArctic is making a positive impact for Hurley! Thanks for sharing and please keep us posted!

Play harder and longer without worrying!

Love our bArtic shirt! Gone are the days of applying vigorous sunscreen every two hours and having to take several breaks in between walks. This really works! North Carolina summers can get so hot, now I can have peace of mind knowing my pup can keep up no matter what!

It is great that your pup loves her bArctic shirt! Sunscreen is messy and blocks the healthy wavelengths of sunlight that dogs need. We are happy that she is getting the light therapy benefits needed for optimal health and comfort. We can't wait to see more pics. of your adorable pup!

Dog(s) Name: Rhaego
If it is sunny out, he's is wearing it!

Rhaego LOVES wearing his bArctic shirt all the time! Rhaego goes swimming in it and also plays fetch, hikes, and goes on walks in it! Pretty much anytime it’s sunny out, he’s wearing it. It’s to the point where he gets excited if I reach for it to put it on him because he knows he’s about to go play!

We are delighted that Rhaego LOVES his bArctic! Your pictures are awesome. We are glad to see him wearing it in the pool. Many people ask if the bArctic can get wet and we let them know that it works when wet or dry. If it gets wet, there is an extra boost of coolness because of natural evaporation. Thanks for sharing and take care!

Having a blast in his bArctic!

I got my shirt to help my bulldog Elmer out on warmer days at daycare. Here he is running around having a blast in it- it was great to have peace of mind he was staying cool in his new shirt while we were out of town and it allowed him stay outside longer!

We are thrilled that the bArctic shirt is helping Elmer, outside in the heat, at doggie daycare! He looks very happy. Please stay in touch and keep us posted!

Hikes every day for 3-4 miles

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

Hi Angel! Thanks so much for sharing. Your photo is great! Ian is king of the desert in his bArctic shirt and we are glad to know that is helps him with the hikes.

Summer fun at the beach in his bArctic!

Although Stitch is not a fan of the water, he loves to run (mostly in circles) on the beach in his bArctic! He can't wait to get back out there this summer

We wish you tons of fun with your family this summer!

Enjoys bathing in the sun in his bArctic!

Murphy recently had surgery on his knee, so isn’t very active right now. But he is enjoying bathing in the sun in his bArctic! He is looking forward to enjoying the summer North Carolina weather this year while staying cool is his snazzy shirt.

Hi Heather! We are thrilled to know that Murphy can enjoy sun bathing and be protected from the sun. He looks great in his snazzy bArctic shirt. Thanks for sharing!
