Cool coats certainly help to keep my dogs cool(er). They pant less and therefore drink less water. I still carry water for them, But without their cool coats on, they would need to drink a lot MORE water which is heavy to lug around. However, I've discovered that because of the very low humidity here, the coats start to dry out after about 60 to 75 minutes. In fact, after soaking them, I don't even bother to ring them out. If I did, they would dry out even faster. They are really no complete match for the AZ heat and low humidity. I found one public bathroom in town where I stop and resoak them and refill water bottles. Only works when it's on my route. On the other side of town, I can refill our bottles at Starbucks. Nevertheless, I am so glad my dogs have these coats here.
