5 Minutes for Super Dog Sunday™ Overtime

 This game has definitely extended when sponsors are coming out of the stands to stand up for shelter pets. Go Petfinder! Are they one of the teams playing?

Event Barkers partners All Things Dog Blog and  DogTipper.com have teamed up with Kumfy Tailz to share a review of Kumfy Koatz, a cooling and warming harness. I look handsome wearing it. Right? Of course there's more to this harness than its good looks. I'll be able to stay cool in our Florida heat when mom freezes the gel pack before a walk. I'm liking that idea :)

My housemate, Tanner, likes to swim before our walks so that he dries off during the walk, allowing him to cool off. Me, not so much. I'm a good swimmer but I really don't enjoy it that much. So Kumfy Koatz is a better solution for me.

Soft  and Kumfy
We have Fido friends in the North that sometimes have to miss out on their walks during Winter. That's our favorite time to walk here in Florida where January and February are beautiful. So we feel badly that our pup friends may get home bound during frigid temperatures or snow storms. The Kumfy Koatz warming harness is an easy way to keep your dog warm and safe during a Winter walk too. The gel pack insert can be warmed according to directions, in your microwave oven, and then inserted in the harness for a Kumfy walk. Notice how clever I was with my spelling there?

The outside layer of fabric on the Kumfy Koatz warming and cooling harnesses has recently been changed to a mesh fabric, available in numberous colors. Did I spell that big word right? Other than the fabric change, the product remains the same. The Kumfy Pax pouch slides easily into its pocket in the chest of the harness to help your dog's inner core organs warm or cool as needed. To learn more, follow the Kumfy Tailz Facebook page, Twitter, or visit their website to see the new fabrics.
Our Petfinder Kitty, Patches

The Kumfy Koatz harness can be used at shelters and in veterinary offices for many therapeutic treatments, both warm and cold. Our giveaway will offer one neoprene Kumfy Koatz to one lucky winner, with another one going to the Petfinder rescue where our Patches came from. We'll give it away in the winner's name so they can feel great about doing something good for a shelter pet. Wondering who Patches is? She's the cat you may occasionally have seen crashing our party here. She has a feisty habit of stealing all the boxes that come in, even this one :(

If you prefer a sure thing to an entry, simply visit the website to select and order your preference of color in the mesh fabric. 

Enter by leaving a comment below between now and Thursday, February 21. Please share your Twitter handle or other contact information that will allow us to find you without you leaving an email address. You can also send us an email at AllThingsDogBlog@gmail.com. I'll put mom in charge of looking for this. Good luck!

Event Barkers is continuing their efforts to aid Petfinder shelters by facilitating this Kumfy Koatz giveaway and donation option for pet bloggers. As with Super Dog Sunday™, they have donated their time and not taken a fee for this service to shelters.

The Comfy Pax gel pack pouch should be heated according to website instructions for safety and the longest life of the pouch. Sizing may be found at this same page. For best results we recommend that you take accurate measurements using a soft tape measure. A limited number of harnesses have been provided to us; we cannot make replacements for poorly-fitted harnesses.

i think this is a good idea for dogs. i would like to find a sun screen t-shirt, light weight for dogs, to keep my black dogs from getting bleached out in the sun. i know they make sun screen items for people to wear, i tried to get some material to make some for my dogs, but they would not sell me any. i like the idea of the hot and cold packs like they make for humans, i have a cool collar that you soak. however, it gets heavy for little dogs. i have one of those things you heat up in the microwave for dogs to lie on.

Love it! This would be perfect for Shiloh in those hot Arizona months. He hardly gets to go out in the summer because of the heat. Sandy Shiloh on FB.

This would be great for my beagle girls who have been missing out on their walks lately because it has been to cold for them @katiemitchell1

KateV said...

I'd love to try this for Shiloh- I think it would be great for agility! It sounds like it could help him cool off after practicing, as well as after runs at outdoor trials in the summer. They sometimes have pools to cool off, but he hates getting wet, so this would be nice to try instead! @high_volzage

@ evie - I think Petco carries the type of shirt you're talking about: http://www.petco.com/N_22_149_30_4294955401/Dog-Apparel-UV-Protective-Apparel.aspx?Ns=P_DateCreated|1&cmref=Category&cmrefv=UV+Protective+Apparel&cmrefr=1&cmrefid=4294955401&cmrefpf=1

I'd love to try this for Sissy. We live in the northeast and it is cold here much of the year. She is also trained to go for a walk several times a day to do her business. this would help her keep warm on those cold wintery days. @daniellemurgia

It gets very hot where I live in California over 115 degrees on a regular basis. If I win Kumfy Tailz it will help keep my dogs cool when I walk them in the early mornings.

evie said...

thanks kate, i think i saw these last yr. i like them, but the way the go around the front legs and chest would tangle my girls feathers. i might buy one and she is i can change the front of in.

Cheryl Chervitz said...

I have never seen these before, but I have a dog that this would be great for. Thank you.

I love the idea of freezing the gel pack for walks during the summer! I never would have thought of that. My mother's dog (1 of the 4 she has) LOVES going for walks all the time, but my mom is always worried that she will get too hot or too cold. This harness would be perfect for the both of them! Thank you for such a great giveaway!

This would be wonderful for my super senior dog who has heat and cold intolerance. He also has arthritis, so trying to get him into a coat in the cold is too rough on his elbows. Thanks for the giveaway! Twitter = @LAFDestiny

I would love to win this to help keep my rescued Bulldogs cool in the summer here in the South! This would also come in handy if (Heaven forbid) we have a hurricane and lose power. I could also use it on them in the winter when it gets cold here. I love that you can use it hot or cold! Thank you so much! @brumzoo

I'd love to try this for my dogs....we love to go on walks and sometimes it's just too hot for my fur kids... I have eight dogs, including three rescues and six of them are long hair double coated breed and another is long haired as well which means misery in heat. I think most of my dogs would enjoy the cooling properties of this harness and I kmow they would enjoy it being warmed in the winter as every single one of the little dogs will snuggle up next to a heating pad and the big dog has his own little heater for cold winter nights. Thanks. Dh_jax@yahoo.com

Steel would LOVE the heating factor. She is terrible at regulating her body temp. She is frequently cold and curled up with her nose tucked under her tail.

Rick said...

Thanks for sharing with our Petfinder Pets!

Nancy said...

Molimo still has so much energy that she frequently gets overheated in the summer. This would be very helpful. She would love to donate a jacket too!

We (me and my Jack Russell Terrier Day-Z) like the pink in Medium

I would like to enter - I've seen these on a few blogs now - never heard of such a thing :) We would use both the warm and cooling since we have all four season. Thanks!

What a cool product (no pun intended)! I think this harness would definitely keep my beagle pup warm when he runs around the snow in the backyard. I'm curious to see if he'll love the cold in the summertime to keep him cool! Great idea. @rose_design

What a great product for our favorite furry friends! I live in Idaho, and it gets VERY cold in the winters, so my poor little friends don't get to go out for their favorite walks. I've considered buying warm clothes for my pets, but I've never known what to get, where to look, etc. etc. etc. Thanks for the information!

I'm sorry I found this so late. I've been seeking out just the thing for my mutt, Shaman, whom I rescued from a shelter some years back. He's on the autism spectrum and has an ongoing skin issue for which there's no cure. Warm towels put his at ease, though. I bet he'd like the neoprene, too. Good thing I'm covered, since the vet bills are stupendous.
