UV BLOCKING - a UPF-50 rating that blocks 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. It is not a chemical treatment - it's a mechanical quality of the yarn so the protection won't diminish with washing. It's especially important for our pink-skinned friends!

REDUCE HEAT ABSORPTION - our darker colored pals really benefit from the heat-reflective shade these tees provide! We tested our black Lab, Luke, out in the sun with an infrared thermometer gun and found his fur was more than 40 degrees cooler under theTee than out!

EVAPORATIVE COOLING - Cool everybody down simply by getting the Tee wet! None of those heavy ice packs or gel inserts. Just comfortable lightweight easy moving tee that won’t get stinky (it’s antimicrobial). 

See the cooling in action in this video!

SKIN CARE - Super comfortable indoors and out and perfect for skin conditions, wound care, topical medications and allergies!

CALMING - a close fitting Tee can really take the edge off for an anxious friend plus it’s comfortable enough to wear all day!

Sizing is the same as the Stretch Fleece and is designed to fit snug. Though the material is different, it will still stretch to fit like a glove!

Recommended For: Sun protection, regulating body temperature, indoor wear, outdoor wear, protecting skin conditions or wounds, mild anxiety, increasing cuteness

Wear Tip: The center chest seam is designed to be on the outside – we want pets to enjoy maximum comfort, especially in that tender area.

Harness Help: These close fitting pullovers are perfect worn under a harness, with no adjustment needed. No fussing with ill-placed harness openings in this snuggy wonder! Plus, wearing this under a harness has an added benefit of reducing or eliminating chaffing!

Washing Instructions: Machine wash cold or warm, tumble dry low or hang to dry.

Proudly made in California and Minnesota, USA!

    Doesn’t stay in...

    The sun shirt fits fine around his chest but the stretchy material rides up and gathers on my short-haired minpin and the bottom of the shirt dangles too much. I’m trying some other cooling options like bandanas and stiff cooling harnesses that stay in place instead. I’ll try the sun shirt out for anxiety next thunderstorm.

    Love These...

    These are great shirts to help keep the sun off my dogs and keep them a little cooler. They work well in the water or on the hiking trail. I'm hoping to buy some more.

    My dog has very sun sensitive skin and he LOVES laying in the sun. Not a good mix. This sun tee paired with sun screen has made his favorite past time possible. The shirt is long in the back which give hangs over his underside when laying down, providing extra preotection. The material is stretchy so get two if you want this shirt to be worn regularly.

    So grateful for these T-shirts

    So far, I've purchased 3 of these T-shirts for my dog who has a permanent bald patch (aka "nakey spot") in a spot that's not easy to cover ... due to injury as a puppy and who now has an autoimmune issue that causes sores there as well. He already sunburns easily, but 2 of the meds he needs make him even more at risk for sunburn. So, these T-shirts help so much in protecting his damaged skin. We also live in Colorado in the mountains, above 8K feet, and the sun is VERY strong here.

    Disappointed with return...

    After measuring my dog and referring to the size guide the tee was still too big. The return process is frustrating... the size i needed was showing unavailable however when i searched on another device the size and color were available. Anyway, i love your products but dislike your return/exchange/refund process. I'll be looking for your products through local shops where the return prices is so much easier.

    As always....

    We have a couple of fleeces, a raincoat and recently the tee. We live in Florida and since it's been crazy hot I dampened the tee before our walks( as suggested) and was able to put his harness on top. We're so pleased ( as we are with all your products) They function as advertised, and better yet contain no chemically treated fabrications. Thank you Goldpaw for being such a trusted source.

    I absolutely love this shirt! It’s great in the Florida heat and is so soft! The quality is exceptional. My yorkie loves it so much, I just had to order her 3 more! They will definitely be a summer staple for us!

    Love this...

    Great for spring/summer coverage from sun, ticks, etc. Lightweight so it doesn't add heat. Great for seniors who need extra protection. Washes well and air dries in 10 minutes. Made and manufactured in USA!

    This shirt was exactly what we were looking for. Our foster dog loves his walks but has scarring on his mid to lower back up to his tail. I like that this is light in weight for the hot SoCal summers and will help with the sun since he is black and tends to get hot quickly. I sized up a little to make sure his lower back was covered easily without riding up. The size 22 would probably have worked as well but ordered the 24.
