Coolvio’s “bArctic” uses a truly unique, newly-patented technology that transforms sunlight, including damaging UV light, into healthy cool red and near-infrared light.  This transformation keeps the dog cooler and protected from harmful UV rays.

The “bArctic” is the only dog shirt in the pet apparel market to use the sun to power its cooling agent. This convenient and sustainable cooling method means dog owners do not have to worry about finding or carrying water, and the dog is not weighed down by wet clothing.

Patented Technology

  • Fabric that doesn’t heat up in the sun and keeps dogs cooler
  • No water required – lasts all day
  • Powered by natural sunlight

Health Benefits For Your Dog

  • Reduces risk of overheating
  • Re-purposes 98% of harmful UV light into healthy cool red and near-infrared light
  • No harmful chemicals
  • Unlike sunscreen, our fabric allows healthy light in
  • A happy dog is an active dog – especially when they are cool and comfortable (Bonus: This means more time outside for you, too!)

How Our Patented Technology Works

Stays Cool

Unlike other fabric, our patented fabric does NOT trap and absorb the sun‘s energy that creates heat — rather transforms it into healthy red and near-infrared light that creates a cooling effect…all through the cutting-edge science of laser physics and optics. Our special fabric does not heat up because it converts and emits the light, releasing the energy.

UV Light Conversion

Just imagine the comfort your active dog will enjoy in the shade-like environment of a dog shirt where 98% of all harmful UVA and UVB light is converted into healthy light!? This is the same healthy light used by veterinarians to reduce joint and muscle pain and inflammation

No Water Required

Plus, there’s no water required like other dog cooling shirts that rely on water evaporation. So this shade effect lasts all day long, without the weight of water! However, if your bArctic does get wet, the technology still works and your pup can also enjoy the natural cooling effect of evaporation.


Our patented technology fabric was made for durability. The fabric was designed to emulate rash guards for white water kayaking and scuba diving. The belly mesh fabric is made to meet military specifications. It also has antimicrobial and moisture-wicking properties. The bArctic Shade shirt fabric washes easily too.
