If it's hard to lure a pooch into a pool or lake, and he still views a hose down as something too close to a bath, here's a great solution to keep your cool, while trying to keep him cool as well. The Dog Cooling Vest ($50 and up) not only offers a shield to save him from the sun, but it can also be soaked in water so he's wet without a sudden shock of a spray or splash. Even though the idea itself is pretty cool, I especially love that one of the sizes is mini Dachshund! It's often hard to entirely cover these odd-shaped pooches, and they deserve protection, too!
