To help pets get through the hot summers, a Tokyo clothing manufacturer has teamed up to vets.
It consists of a fan-like device that blows air around the animal’s body.
Rei Uzawa is the president of Sweet Mommy, a manufacturer of maternity clothing. She said that she created it because she was tired of the constant ruff times her chihuahua had when it went for walks in extreme heat.
She said, “There was almost no rainy year this year, so the heat days came early and I think we created a product that’s right for the market.”
The rainy season in Tokyo had ended in June. Japan’s capital was hit with the longest heatwave ever recorded, with temperatures reaching 35C (95F), for nine days.
To keep my dog cool, I use dry ice packs. Mami Kumamoto (48), owner of Pudding, a miniature poodle, and Maco, a terrier named Maco, said that it makes walking your dog easier.
Sweet Mommy received approximately 100 orders for the product since its debut in July, Uzawa stated.
You can choose from five sizes, and it is priced at 9,900yen (PS60).
