Aqua Coolkeeper Bandana
If your dog suffers from heat on summery days, the Aqua Coolkeeper Bandana can be the solution. This is based on the same principle as the Aqua Coolkeeper Collar but also has an extra area covering your dog's chest. To use this bandana, you don't need a fridge or freezer, just water. When you place the bandana into the water, the specially developed HydroQuartz in the product is activated, this forms an actively cooling gel. This absorbs your dog's body heat and then releases it through evaporation. This makes direct and constant cooling possible. The cooling effect continues for up to 5 days (the actual effect can be affected by the circumstances).
Ideal for use
- on summery days
- while travelling
- while playing and exercising
- during outdoor activities
Dogs and high temperatures
Dogs are unable to lose their excess body heat by sweating like people do. This is because they hardly have any sweat glands. Dogs can only regulate their body temperature by panting or by sweating through their paw pads. However, in this way, an animal can only release a small portion of its excess body heat. This makes dogs sensitive to overheating or heat stroke, which can lead to lasting damage to organs, a coma or in severe cases even death. In this article by our veterinarian you will find various tips for keeping your dog cool in summery temperatures.
Place the Aqua Coolkeeper in cold water and your dog will get cool relief within a few minutes. The bandana is easy to place around your dog's neck using Velcro. The cooling effect of the collar continues for up to 5 days (the actual effect can be affected by the circumstances). You can keep reusing the Aqua Coolkeeper.
Tip: For a longer haired dog, it takes a little longer for the cooling effect to reach the skin, but even then the bandana will cool your dog. You can try to place the bandana under the long hair, improving the skin contact.
In order to make sure that you are ordering the right size for your pet, it is important that you measure your pet properly. In the article How do I know what size my pet needs?, we give you tips on how best to measure your pet.
What size does my dog need? Size Neck circumference Size XXS 19 -25cm Size XS 26 -33cm Size S 34 - 43cm Size M 44 - 52cm Size L 53 - 60cm Size XL 61 - 70cm Size XXL 71 - 78cm
Please note: Every Aqua Coolkeeper has its own maximum submersion time and a maximum thickness that can be reached in water. Do not exceed these limits, because there is a risk of the HydroQuartz crystals coming out through the seams. The Aqua Coolkeeper Bandana has a maximum immersion time of 30 seconds.
After submersion (and drying is necessary), the product will not feel ice cold, as this is a very unpleasant feeling for your pet (as it is in humans). However, the gel will extract sufficient heat from the animal and release it through evaporation. We do not recommend putting the product in the refrigerator and then immediately using it on your pet, because the Aqua Coolkeeper might then feel too cold and the pet cannot tell you this. Even though the bandana absorbs water, it will still feel completely dry afterwards. The bandana will not feel wet.
What if the Aqua Coolkeeper Bandana doesn't fit?
The Aqua Coolkeeper Bandana can be removed from the packaging and held up next to your pet in order to check whether it fits. For hygiene reasons, the bandana cannot be returned if it has come into contact with your pet. If we find that the returned product is stained, worn, contains dog hair, smells or has been washed after use, we cannot return the product to you. Once you've submerged the bandana, the HydroQuartz crystals are activated and the product will no longer be in an as-new state. In this event, the product will be donated to a charity (local shelter). As we are often confronted with Aqua Coolkeeper products that are returned in a less than new condition, we have to apply these rules for fitting and/or returning products.
Note: Each Aqua Coolkeeper has its own immersion time and a maximum thickness that can be reached by immersing it in water. Please do not exceed these limits as there is a risk that the HydroQuartz crystals will come out through the seams. [p] [p]After immersing (and possibly drying), the product will not feel ice cold, which would be a particularly unpleasant feeling for the animal (just like with humans). Nevertheless, the gel will extract sufficient heat from the pet and dissipate it via evaporation. It is not recommended to put the product in the refrigerator and then immediately use it on your pet because the Aqua Coolkeeper might be too cold. Even though the bandana soaks up with water, it feels completely dry after soaking.
After you have submerged the Aqua Coolkeeper in the water for the first time, you may notice small gel particles appearing along the seams. This is not a manufacturing defect of your Aqua Coolkeeper product. The product may push out small pieces of the cooling crystals that are hiding in the seams. If you see any of these gel particles on your product after soaking, simply wipe it off with a towel. This can occur after the first or second immersion. Once the gel particles are wiped off, they don't come back. The gel is 100% non-toxic.

My black Labrador really struggles with heat. So much so that he was constantly panting and puffing (even in shade) during the Spring heatwave. This bandana is amazing! Stays cool for days and all you need to do is submerge it under water for a few seconds and it’ll stay cool another few days. We’re now tempted to try their cooling mats to see if they’re just as good :-)
Best cooling collar I have purchased (2nd purchased). I ordered a second so I have one for the beach so if it gets sandy, I can change when leaving. I have had cooling collars before but this one does what it says it does. Do not have to keep wetting it.
This really worked, kept my Labrador cool during the heatwave. She loved it. Would recommend.
Had to pop into water daily during the heatwave, but kept cool. Just as a warning though, my dog took a dip in the sea whilst wearing and it seemed to have destroyed the crystals. Have ordered a replacement as I was pleased with product.
