Does anyone have a cooling coat for their dog? I was thinking of getting one for Journey because she's constantly hot and panting, and she also has two summer shows that are bound to probably be quite hot. But do they actually work? I've been looking online and I don't even know what the best kind is to buy. I found one company that is over $100 for a coat her size, and another company is selling what looks like almost the same product (just no chest/belly part) for like $30. That seems like such a drastic difference. Both coats look like they're made of some kind of chamois material.
Also, perhaps a stupid question, but if I put one on her at a show, would it be moist enough to make her coat wave? I have to put a lot of effort into blow drying it and getting it to stay straight so I wouldn't want it to ruin all of that. Her coat isn't that curly, but it does look better straight than wavy.
