The inspiration for the COOLDOG Freezable Harness started when the light bulb moment happened. On a hot summer day in Los Angeles my home was registering 80+ degrees and I was suffering along with my precious Doxie, Ginger.
I was pulling out gel packs I had in the freezer to put on myself and I put one on Ginger. I told her to be still and lay down to prevent it from slipping off. Well, that didn’t work so I also had one with a strap that I used for a previous ankle injury which worked really well and stayed attached to her body. Very soon she was happy and relaxed while enjoying the cooling effects that were taking place. It was at that moment I realized this will work on dogs as it does for people. That’s when the idea came to me for a FREEZABLE gel pack harness. All you have to do is place the harness in the freezer and when it’s cold put it on your dog. There’s no fuss, it’s easy breezy and you’re ready to go!
After two years of research and looking online for what I envisioned, I realized there is nothing on the market that is a freezable harness. I wanted to have it made in the USA and most of all to be safe for dogs. So, I created the COOLDOG Freezable Harness, the one and only FREEZABLE cooling harness made in the USA with the best and safest cooling gel technology made especially for us by a cryotherapy expert who makes gel packs for medical purposes for people.
We quickly realized that the "weighted-gel" was also helping dogs stay calm and more relaxed when wearing our COOLDOG harness and was helping dogs with anxiety issues such as riding in the car, loud noises, thunderstorms, or simply just walking around outside amongst strangers and other dogs.
So once again back to research.... we found that "Weighted" products indeed help create a feeling of calm and comfort with children, babies, people, and NOW dogs.
We found, when dogs were wearing our COOLDOG harness they became less anxious and calmer and more comfortable and they did not want to take them off... it's like wearing a snug, cozy, comfy feeling all the time around your body, and simply doing activities is comforting and soothing.
We now knew we had created a Dual-Purpose COOLING AND CALMING FREEZABLE HARNESS.
And because the weighted-gel is flexible, pliable, and bendable, it gives your dog the comfortable snug-support all-in-one for that "feel-good" feeling
