As I’ve already shared with you this Summer, Bear is just one of those dogs who is always hot. We don’t have air conditioning in our home, so naturally we have several tricks that we use to keep him cool and hydrated in the summer months. Needless to say, I’m always on the lookout for new technology that could lend a cooling paw as well.
The Cool Pet Pad by The Green Pet Shop is a revolutionary self-cooling cushion for your pet. It provides a constant cooling spot for your pet to lay, and relieves aching joints/bones. The great part is that the Cool Pet Pad doesn’t need water, electricity or refrigeration in order to cool your pup which makes it an extremely eco-friendly option for continued use. The cooling pad recharges automatically as well and is perfect for traveling in the car or for use in your pets crate.
Bear was sent a medium sized Cool Pet Pad to review and our only complaint is that it’s not a bit bigger. Bear can’t sprawl out on this pad, but it does work for his chest area which is where it is most important.We’re of the mindset that having a bigger mat would be better than having one that is too small, as it would work more effectively to cool him down more quickly. The medium sized pad is surprisingly perfectly sized for Scooter to lay on- which he really enjoys doing in the car.
For Bear, we place the cooling pet mat centered on his dog bed in front of the fan and he’ll happily lay there for hours on end. The cooling effect of the mat lasts for about 3 hours, and then recharges on its own after 15 minutes of non-use. The only rule for use with this cooling pet mat is that you can’t leave it in direct sunlight, or a heated environment (like your locked car sitting in the sun) or this will affect the performance of the cooling pet mat. We love that the mat folds up as we take it with us when we travel, and it’s easy to wipe down with a damp cloth.
Is a cooling pet mat something you think your dog would enjoy? We’re wondering when they’re coming out with the human version so the whole family can hang out on cooling mats together 😉
