Frequently Asked Questions about Cooling Dog Beds
Are cooling beds good for dogs?
Cooling beds can be very good for dogs, especially for dogs with thicker coats and those outside in hotter weather. Dog beds with cooling technology can help keep dogs from overheating and make them more comfortable, happier and safer, too. Choose from a variety of cooling dog bed styles, including orthopedic cooling dog beds, elevated cooling beds, cooling pads and blankets, cooling bolster beds, cooling pillow beds and more!
How do cooling dog beds work?
Cooling dog beds work by absorbing excess heat from your pet to help regulate body temperature and keep your best friend feeling comfortable. Cooling memory foam beds are usually made with a special gel cooling foam material that helps prevent the heat buildup associated with traditional memory foam. Cooling blankets and mats for dogs often feature a gel or chilled water-filled core that wicks heat to keep your pet cool indoors or out. Elevated cooling beds often use breathable, heat-releasing material and rely on air flow underneath for most of their cooling properties.

Are cooling dog beds safe?
Cooling dog beds are generally safe, but be sure to choose one made specifically for dogs and use it according to the manufacturer's directions. Use extra caution if you have a dog who likes to chew, however. Dogs who chew their beds may wind up ingesting the gel inside the bed, which is usually non-toxic, but may cause stomach upset.
