Pretty sure dogs do not sweat so how can a fan on its back keep it cool? Panting is how they cool themselves.

japan, will always be anime land. no wonder its people are aloof, apathetic, uninspired, directionless, lacking innovation and just fed up with the constant pressures to still practice over-deference in this day and age.

This is so ridiculous. They put them in those hideous outfits and fret over how hot they must be. Well if you took off that mesh garb and left them alone, they'd feel a lot cooler. Running hot air through a piece of plastic is only adding more aggravation. And dogs release heat through their mouths, that's why they're panting. "For the love of god, get this off of my back woman!"

Dogs inside (at the end) with the fan was shivering; small dogs have low core temp. Dogs lose heat by panting and their paw pads. Dry fan and – too close to their delicate skin

1. Will evaporate their essential fur oils that is needed for optimum fur health and function.

2. Throwing the balance of skin and fur chemistry OFF. This will invite parasites and allow disease.

3. The lazy owners won't remove/put device back on – as they enter / exit air conditioned buildings/paths – this is very unsafe for ensuring constant body temp for such a small animal

4. MAIN QUESTION : How is the maker of these fans even claiming they partnered with Veteranians???? What vet would condone this crap? And guess what? The battery will give off…(wait for it)……….HEAT!. #Doh!

Just use a wet cloth or carry a water mister and water to drink – and / or give your dog a haircut!

I wonder if, scaled up, that idea could work for humans/homeless in extreme-heatwaves? Or jobs (carpenters; roofers; yard maintenance people; road-sign workers; outdoor life guards…etc…)? 🤔

They really are “Hotdogs” 😂😂

I just see v hot $oga w their tongues on the floor wearing fans. This gives no respite

Dogs cool down by panting. The fan is in the wrong position – it should be strapped over their muzzles.
Human owners are so gullible!

They wanna keep the meat cool before eating it 😂

ForestNinjaZero August 3, 2022 - 6:22 AM

They're adorable, but that fan won't cool them at all. 🌭🔥
