Cooling Mats For Dogs- Review

Jun 18, 2024

Have a sensitive dog who doesn't love the heat, but you can't put a bandana or vest on them?  Cooling mats might be a good option for you.

There are many types of commercially available cooling mats for dogs. My dogs tested out a gel-filled cooling mat, a water-filled mat, an ice-filled mat, and an "ice silk" fabric mat

Overall, my dogs preferred the Green Pet Shop gel-filled mat. I thought the ice-filled mat felt the coldest, but it was kind of bulky and not very soft. The water-filled mat was inconvenient to use, and I'm skeptical about the cooling ability of the ice silk mat

There are more details on the pros and cons of each mat, and photos of the mats in use, in this video:



If you try one of these mats, or if you have another cooling mat that your dog loves, I'd love to hear from you! Shoot me an email at [email protected] and share your thoughts.
