I bought this for my 8 year old pit mix who has severe elbow dysplasia and loves to lay on the cold tile. I wanted something that would stay cool and be softer than the floor. At first he didn’t use it but after about one week of us moving around near him he began to use it and now, a month later, will go lay on it almost every time he wants to be on the floor. Totally worth it because you can put it anywhere, like in car, outside, a different room, and it really stays cool for a long time.
Living in Houston, where it has been 100 degrees for MONTHS we needed a way to cool down our husky mix. We tried a cheaper cooling pad, but he always opted for the tile floors in the bathroom instead. We decided to give cooling pads one more try, and bought the Green Pet Shop cooling pad. He LOVES it. We spent a bit of time acclimating him to it, by getting him to lie down on it and rewarding him (we tried this with the cheaper pad too), but now he chooses to lay on it all the time. It's quickly become his #1 nap spot and means he can hangout in the living room with us, rather than chilling in the bathroom to be on the tile!
Our dog loves her cool mat no matter what the season. Don't be fooled by the thin profile. They work! She is on her 4th one from The Green Pet Shop (she does wear them down after a year or so). Thank you Chewy for having it in stock when everyone locally had run out. As our summers in the PNW have heated up for longer periods of time, Samantha enjoys her cool mat even more. And so does her cat sister :)
I really wanted to love these. My dogs always lay accross the A/C vents. I thought they would love these and we could get more A/C in the room. They will lay on them, especially if I put them on top of their bed, but they don't seek them out and still lay accross the A/C vents. They do feel cooler than the room air, seem well made and are easy to clean. Worth a try.
I ordered 2 medium cool pads. They cool my dogs paws quickly. But, I put in the refrigerator and let them cool more than just the pressure of my babies. My babies love it! I order 2 more in the large size, so 2 are always cooling in the refrigerator. Then I ordered one for my sister's baby. At first hers didn't use it, but now I'm planning on ordering a second one for her. Our fur babies can cool down quick and they are worth every penny.
Cruz is a Boxer and gets overheated quickly with his short smushed muzzle. A friend suggested this mat and it has been a life changer for him. He sleeps more comfortably and enjoys laying on it both in the house and out on our covered deck. I highly recommend this with our summers getting hotter and hotter.
Here in the California valley, we were experiencing 110 degree for days in a row. My poor Phoebe was miserable and panting excessively. Of course I kept her inside as much as possible out out the sun. The. AC is not working like it should. I cooled her down with cold water sprays and towels but that was very temporary. When I got the cooling pad she checked it out first and then laid on it. She stopped panting and even fell asleep! A fantastic purchase for these torrid summer days to keep my Phoebe comfortable. I’m so happy I bought this for my girl.
Purchased this mat on recommendation from our breeder. Our Toller likes it, and uses it to cool off, even preferring the mat to the tile floor. Our daughter's Standard Poodle was visiting, and he liked it so much, we bought another mat for him. Then our family member's Siberian tried it out and she approved It recharges fast and is cushy enough to make it appealing. This is not a mat to be used unsupervised.
My big boy, 75lbs, was way too hot this summer. Took a bit to get him to lay on it. Once he realized it was cool, that was it! Now he's always on it! I wondered how it felt, so I laid on it! Feels like laying on ice! Maybe I'll get one for me! best purchase for the summer!!
I ordered this b/c my 10-year old basset hound has Cushings, the swollen potbelly, etc and thought it would help cool her down after being outside in extraordinary heat & humidity. She primarily lives in AC but Cushings dogs have problems regulating body temps and this mat hasn't done a thing. I don't feel where it cools down at all (when she - or my foot - put any pressure on to activate). Save your $ & use cool towels to make your pet more comfortable.
