Soakers are lightweight cool-down coats designed to assist in reducing your dog’s core body temperature. By reducing the core body temperature, it will reduce the risk of heatstroke. How it works: when the water evaporates from the Soaker Robe fabric, it causes a cooling effect and therefore reducing your dog’s body temperature. Our unique design covers the dog’s back as well as under the neck and chest area. By cooling the underbelly area, it significantly improved the cooling effect on the dog.
