product information

This is the best dog cooling mat we have come across for its combination of comfort, cooling, durability and portability. The Henry Wag padded dog cool mat offers comfort as well as a cooling effect as your dog chills out. This new generation of dog cool mat contains innovative cooling gel plus an inner layer of foam not found in most other cool mats. It is the layer of foam and the generous filling of non-toxic gel that make this mat a clear winner.

The perfect place for your dog to relax in warm weather - the ingenious gel in these mats absorb heat from your pet's body, cooling them easily and comfortably to slightly lower than their body temperature. No refrigeration required! The cooling effect lasts for several hours, absorbing heat and reducing your pet's body temperature. Once your pet moves around or leaves the mat it regenerates quickly, returning to its naturally cool state.

No electricity, water or refrigeration required. Simply unpack and place on the floor, in your dog's bed or in their crate. Within a few moments of resting on the mat, your dog will feel the cooling effects. Can be used indoors or out, away from direct sunlight.

Simply the best mat we have found for cooling and comfort - and affordable too!

The heat exchange process happens naturally without the need for electricity or any other source of energy. You don't need to add water, place it in the fridge or plug it into the electric. Your dog simply laying on the mat is enough for the magic to work.

dog cooling mat - no water, power or refrigeration needed

The nylon outer is smooth and durable. The generous filling of gel beats all other mats we have tried. But we especially love the inner layer of comfortable foam that accompanies the cooling gel. Other mats we have tried either have a hard, flat layer of gel inside offering minimal cooling and no comfort or alternatively a bumpy bed of crystals which only becomes comfortable once they are already warm and liquified. Other mats rely on being water filled, which can make them heavy and prone to leaks.

Great for hot days, indoors and out. With this deluxe dog cooling mat you have all the best features in one innovative, luxury mat.

These mats don't need to be the full size of your dog. As long as their body (chest and vital organs) are laying on the mat, that will cool them.

Does my dog need a cool mat?

Dogs are prone to overheating and can struggle to keep cool when the temperature rises. They are trapped in fur coats all year round and they can't sweat to regulate their body temperature. Many dogs seek out cool places to relax and will often lay on hard floors in a bid to cool down. This deluxe cool mat offers your dog an alternative, more comfortable place to chill out.

Please note

The mat stays at a temperature that is slightly lower than your dog's body temperature for up to 4 hours, depending on use and the surrounding temperature. These mats all work best in temperatures under 30°C. Best placed away from direct sunlight.

Made of a nylon fabric outer with a non-toxic gel and foam inner. Wipe clean with a damp cloth. Do not step on the mat or allow it to be pierced. Puncture resistant and durable but not chew resistant and may not survive digging with sharp claws. Supervise use to begin with.

If your dog is unsure at first, place the mat in their usual favourite relaxing place and let them discover its coolness.

Works exactly as described
Thursday, 12 August 2021  |  Sean

I bought this a fraction too late as the very hot weather had passed after this arrived.
However, it definitely does the trick - just placing your hand on it you can feel how cool it gets.
I did notice that the magic gel inside isnít necessarily distributed evenly so the gel is mainly within the centre with limited effectiveness towards the outer edges. This may even out over time as your pet lays on it and forces the gel to move about.
I bought this for my cat who, although would sit on it, hadnít quite learnt to fully lay on it when he was hot so it may take a while for your pet to get used to it as it is a different type of surface to lie on that may be unfamiliar to them.

Also worth noting that although described as an XL size, I wouldnít necessarily describe it as XL so you may want to double check the sizes to make sure itís big enough for your pet. As I had bought it for my cat, it is plenty big enough for him (even though he is a larger cat).

Worth noting as well that as this mat is clearly intended for dogs, the matís surface is not immune to cats claws - I have had to patch a hole with gaffa tape where my cat stretched and pawed at it. I was fully aware this could be a problem so thatís not a fault of the mat necessarily.

Recommended - it clearly works as described but may take a while for your pet to get used to it. Not necessarily ideal for cats sharper claws so extra care may be required in this instance.

Does what it says
Monday, 9 August 2021  |  Christine

I purchased 2 very reasonably priced cooling mats and was impressed by the soft padding ( greyhounds are very bony!) and immediate coolness to the touch. Hounds were very grateful for them during the recent spate of hot weather. The mats even functioned when scrunched - greys like to scrape around to arrange their beds. Would definitely recommend.

Great size bought the 50x65cm for my Lhasa Apso. Nicely padded and for extra coolness I spray the mat with cold water.
