Has anyone here ever tried the Swamp Cooler for their dog?

This was recommended on another forum I belong to as a way to help keep Chows cool when they're outside during the summer months. I'm in Florida where the summers are long, hot and humid and this looks like it would be a great product but wanted to try and get more feedback before buying.

Thanks in advance!

Wow - looks very fancy-shmancy! lol

I think it looks fine to try. : ) I bet your Chow would appreciate it so much!
It is very frustrating to see them panting with all that fur and you can't really do anything about it. We used to take ours down to the river and they'd sort of stand in it and not go all the way in lol - or we would get a plastic kiddie pool : )

I would definitely try it! What I always do before buying something I'm suspicious about, is typing it in on Google. Like, "Does Swamp Cooler work?" and see which results come up.

Good luck!

All of the reviews on the various websites that sell have said good things about it working to keep dogs cool. The only negatives I found are that long haired dogs do stay wet for a while and that the fabric snags. I have a hair dryer I can use to dry him if needed and I don't take him out romping in the brush so I think I'm going to be ordering it sometime soon! :)
