GEM Motoring Assist, which is the United Kingdom’s No.1 in terms of breakdown cover and road safety charity, has partnered with Prestige Pets prestigepets.co.uk this summer to campaign for the latest product which will keep your dog cool during the hottest months -- the Cool Coat, which is activated by water.
It is light, soft to the touch, and cool, making the product a luxurious and comfortable one for dogs to wear.
In relation to this, GEM is reminding all motorists to take special care of their pets when traveling with them. Also, GEM aims to remind the owners that pets should be properly hydrated and they have to be safely secured on long car journeys during the hot summer months.
When the temperature starts to increase, motorists may often forget how the heat can affect their pets. If not carefully considered, driving with the pets can be extremely harmful or even fatal. GEM advises that to ensure that dogs are cool during a long and hot journey, there must be enough air, space and water for them.
It is also advised not to leave them in the vehicle by themselves, even for a short period. The moisture in Cool Coat, when used, slowly evaporates as the temperature gets higher. This will draw the excess heat out of the body of the dogs, giving then a feeling far cooler than before.
