I didn’t realize when I purchased that you need to soak the product before using, consequently, it was wet. My dog didn’t want to get on it, and it didn’t feel particularly cool to me- just wet. Dirty paws will become muddy. Can use in a plastic crate, but not on a hardwood floor or a fabric carrier. A wide miss for me.
Sierra is a very hot-natured dog and she seems to be attracted to this mat.
The size is totally off as described in the site, there are no washing directions or other care instructions.
The cooling pad leaked water all over my wood floors. I even put covers on them and they still leaked. Was not happy with them. Chewy gave me a refund on they and I donated them to a dog shelter.
Love this. I fold it and it fits in his carrier. I live in the southwest and it is hot. This keeps my dog cool.
I bought this for my Layla for the heat because she loves ice cubes and for me to rub her with an ice pack. I got it wet and put in my freezer for a little bit. I just put it on a towel and showed it to her. She smelled it, pawed it then went under my bed and would not come out. So this wasn't a good idea for my Layla
I was thinking this would be a gel technology and would absorb the water and stay cool but it doesn't. In order to be cool it has to be actively wet and I do not mean damp- wet. I would not recommend if you do not want your dog getting damp- and in turn when he walks away after being on it he leaves wet/damp paw prints around
i put mine in the freezer for a little as well as the regular directions. works amazing! he wouldn’t lay on it, i think because it felt wet. he enjoys it very much draped on top of him while he sleeps.
My dog used this pad once. Every time after that when I put it out over her favorite spot to lay, she would drag it out of the way and ignore it. I don't blame her. The thing always held too much water. Even when I tried to squeeze it out a little, it was sopping wet. And every time I handled it, it left a slick, sort of slimy feel on my hands. I didn't enjoy the experience and neither did my dog. This pad was a waste of money for me. I wish I could have returned it.
I bought this mat to help keep my dog cool. However, he won't lay on it. I think it feels great when I step on it. So since he won't lay on it today we placed it on top of him. He stayed with it on him for a while.
