Pet Clothing And Accessories With Heat Sensative Technology

Peace, Love and Treats - with LuvGear technology

Description: Montreal-based LuvGear™ has teamed up with PETCO to introduce a revolutionary new line of organic apparel and accessories for dogs designed to help protect them from the dangers of heat. Planet PETCO™ apparel with LuvGear™ Technology will be introduced for the first time in May of 2011 as part of the recently launched Planet PETCO™ line of eco-friendly lifestyle and care products that encourage sustainability. TempAlert™ is designed to warn dog owners when the external temperatures are reaching levels that may be harmful or even fatal to a dog. Here’s how it works: The “alert” icons are sewn directly onto the clothing or material and serve as a visible warning sign when the temperature reaches a dangerous level for a dog to be outside. In normal conditions, the alert patch displays a dark blue/purple thermometer. When the outside temperatures reach approximately 100 degrees (F), the blue/purple color in the thermometer disappears, revealing an “ALERT” which warns the owner to take the necessary steps to protect their pet from heat exhaustion or heat stroke.
