My crazy pup, a Samoyed, absolutely loves these cooling mats, especially considering that we live in a hot climate. I have several of these throughout the house to help her sleep at night along with a few fans. Highly recommend to those who have double coated breeds.
Maybe I had higher expectations, but was not impressed with this cooling pad at all. When it arrived I tested it by putting my feet on it. You could feel it cool just a bit but then it would turn warm again very quickly. We bought this to travel cross country with our cat in July and ended up not using it at all. It was a
Baylar loves this cooling mat! He is a Border Collie and with the hot summer this year he was always panting inside the house even with the air on. It did not take him long to stretch out on this to cool off. This is a great product! It is made well and easy to use. Highly recommend!
At first, our dogs were a little reluctant to lie on them, so we had to put them in their crates on their beds. The recent heatwaves of over a hundred degrees in Los Angeles motivated us to buy these. It seemed like this plus wet bandanas that were kept in the freezer and soaking their necks periodically throughout the day, with fans pointed at them allowed us to survive without air conditioning. They're not a cure all by themselves for heart relief but combined with other things, are helpful to lower our dogs' body temperatures.
Katie is a short nosed breed and heat intolerant here in Florida. This products enables her to be cool either inside or out. They last about a year before they start to wrinkle - then please re-order..
I really wanted this to work for my Rottie. She did go on one time when I first laid it down. But after that, she wouldn't touch it. I couldn't get her to go on it for anything. So, I figure, I'll use it. However, it didn't work at all. Soooo disappointed. I really want something for her for the summers. She gets so hot.
My 11-year-old sheltie has always run hot, and always prefers to sleep on the hard wood or tile because it keeps her cool. Even so, she often will change positions and move to try to find a cooler spot. I did not have high hopes purchasing this--I thought it was worth a try but my girl very commonly refuses to sleep on beds I buy, so I was very pleasantly surprised when after a few days she started using it. Now it's her favorite place to sleep in the house, and I've purchased a second mat for another area of the house. I am thrilled with this product--it really cools when you press on it. I do wish it had a little more cushion for my senior pup, but it is certainly more comfortable than laying on the hard floor. Very happy with this purchase, and highly recommend if your dog is a hot sleeper.
This is our first summer with Lucy and we have no air conditioning, so I knew she was going to have a rough time between the heat and humidity. Boy am I glad I got the pad when we did! I put it down on the floor right out of the box and she was less than interested, but I found that if I put the pad in the fridge (even though it says it's unnecessary, trust me) and then put it on our sofa and I think she can actually feel the cold now because she refuses to leave it. I want to note that the pad worked almost instantaneously in cooling her off, too. Without the pad she was panting, but after a minute of laying on the pad she stopped panting. We're now thinking about getting more pads to try to get our cats to lay on them as well. For reference, we got the 'large' size pad for Lucy - she's about 50lbs and fits on it just fine.
I have a long-haired corgi and she is very sensitive to the heat/summer weather. I bought this when we first moved to NYC and had an apartment without AC. She enjoyed it, but the real game changed when I started keeping this pad in the freezer. Now I have 2, so that 1 is always sitting in the freezer ready for her. Anytime we come in from a walk, I get her a frozen mat and she is so thrilled. It might be her favorite part of summer walks. Highly recommend keeping this mat in the freezer for your own fur babies!
The pad is nice enough and our dogs like using it but it has started to deform and crumple up after just over a year. Seems to be a shelf life issue. Will seek out other brands for next purchase to avoid the issue.
