The coolest dogs wear Chillybuddy! Chillybuddy is a light-weight mesh dog-cooling coat designed to help keep your dog comfortable in hot weather and reduce harmful exposure to the sun.

  • Keep your dog up to 40% cooler!: The Chillybuddy provides a shield from direct sunlight which will help to keep your dog cool and comfortable. On a 90 degree day, wearing a dry Chillybuddy has been found to lower coat temperature from 145 degrees to 103 degrees. A wetted Chillybuddy was found to lower coat temperature from 145 degrees all the way down to 83 degrees. That’s over 40% cooler!
  • How it works: The jacket’s outer layer is made of woven light-weight plastic with an aluminized finish. The fabric functions like thousands of tiny mirrors, reflecting all wavelengths of light away from the surface.The Chillybuddy is lined with a light cotton mesh that breathes and is soak-able for evaporative cooling. Both layers allow air to pass through. Cotton has been repeatedly shown to be the best fiber to hold water for evaporative cooling. Soft stretch fabric covers the torso of your dog and can also be wetted down for additional cooling.
  • Great fit and features: The Chillybuddy vest features hook and loop closures for an adjustable fit. A slot is included so that you can attach your leash to your dog’s collar. A collar attachment strap further helps keep the jacket in place on your dog. The petite and small sizes also include a leash attachment ring which allows the Chillybuddy to be used as a walking harness.
  • It’s durable! The Chillybuddy was field-tested in mountain terrain and open-field hunting. It is tear, snag and run-resistant under repeated use in rugged outdoor conditions.
  • Perfect for: Protecting light-haired dogs from sunburn. Protecting show dog coats from bleaching by the sun. Training, walks and sports!
  • Fun and fashionable look. Machine washable. Edging is bold yellow, very close to the yellow shown here. We are awaiting new pictures. Other edging colors have been discontinued to streamline production.
  • Available in two styles: Chillybuddy Sport is designed for the dog that plays, runs or works in the woods or any other rough terrain. Its innovative design allows the jacket to stay securely on your dog throughout the most active conditions. Chillybuddy Casual, the everyday cooling jacket, is designed for the dog who enjoys playing, walking or even running outside in basic city and suburban conditions. Easy to put on; easy to take off.

  • Common sense warning: The Chillybuddy jacket is designed to make your dog more comfortable when out in the sun. Lack of water, overwork, poor health, or weather conditions may still cause a dog to become overheated. The dog’s handler is responsible for monitoring the dog’s condition and protecting the pet from heat exhaustion or other effects of overheating. Please be sure to give your dog plenty of water and avoid overworking him in hot conditions.

ChillyBuddy Vest – Great product! Pet Expertise has wonderful customer service!

I have an 11 yr. old black female Lab. As she ages the sun really heats her body up quickly. I carried a water bottle to wet her down during our 3 mile walks, but it is not easy to wet a Labs fur as it is intended to stay dry while retrieving in a cold lake. A Labs fur also builds up heat and holds it against the dogs skin.

I do not “dress up” my animals unless needed. I found ChillyBuddy and decided it was worth a try. I love this vest and so does the dog. It Is quick and easy to put on. This vest works great. For 70 to 74 degrees I use the vest as is and the silver top reflects the sun away from her body. For 75 to 80 degrees I wet the vest before I put in on her and it keeps her very cool and very comfortable…. And NEVER forget the booties to protect her feet from the hot ground feet!!! I still wet her head if it gets above 72 degrees. ChillyBuddy’s cooling vest allows me to walk my black dog in warmer weather keeping her in good shape for continued quality of life!

Thank you ChillyBuddy and thank you Pet Expertise!!!

The ChillyBuddy is the only cooling coat I have found not to make my double coated, longhaired dogs (Belgian Tervuren) hotter. They are very comfortable in this coat with a fan on them in their wire crates waiting for competition and wear it to the start line or arena for agility and herding. In scent work they are allowed to work in the coat. Each of my dogs has their own! I love them and so do the dogs.
I've had two of these coats I bought quite a while ago. While my black pugs don't like me to put them on (after soaking them in water), they soon forget about them once out and walking. Pugs can't cool themselves well by panting; black pugs up the ante in not doing well in sunny summer heat. It does not stop my 14 lb, very flat faced Chica girl from panting, but when we come back in and coats are removed, yes, they feel cool. My male black pug has a slight muzzle, which helps him cool off better than Chica. I definitely recommend these--they've held up well over the years (the aluminum outside of coat can sometimes get caught on something and the thread like weaving can be damaged) which is why the 4 star rating instead of 5.
I have one of these for my black dog. He does much better on hikes when he wears it. And it turns heads! :-)
i got one last spring for my mini-poodle who doesnt like the summer sun, and it is wonderful! he wears it to training classes at the park may-sept, and he can pay attention for the whole hour, instead of running for shade after only 10 minutes when he didn't wear it. i wet it thoroughly prior to leaving hte house, and then pour a little more water on it when we take drink breaks. Highly recommended!
