This waterproof dog blanket is a cosy and very practical mat for our rather wet furry friends. The comfortable fleece outer hides a secret lock away core that actually keeps wet and urine away from your dog and off your furniture or dog's bed. If you struggle to keep your dog dry overnight due to urine incontinence, this is the solution. You'll have a clean, dry and happy dog every morning. Perfect for elderly or infirm dogs who are a bit leaky and wake up wet in the mornings. Also great for protecting your soft furnishings or your dog's own bed from the wet.
Originally developed for dogs who experience overnight urine incontinence but is also great for use after baths, hydrotherapy, wet walks and so on.
It is much more than just a waterproof mat - it is absorbent as well. The urine will pass through the top layer so your dog isn't laying in wet or urine.
If your dog is incontinent it is important that they are kept as clean and dry as possible. Standard waterproof bedding leaves your dog laying in the urine, causing discomfort and skin irritation. The Wet Dog Mat is both absorbent and waterproof meaning that your dog will remain dry and anything under the mat will also remain dry.
Made up of five functional layers. There is polar fleece top and bottom with an absorbent and lock-away inner. The first inside layer is a highly technical fabric which allows liquids to quickly pass through, leaving your dog dry and comfortable. The liquid is then locked away in the next layer followed by a waterproof and breathable polyurethane backing which prevents penetration of the liquid to anything underneath the mat.
Perfect to go in or over your dog's existing bed, on the sofa, in the car, on your own bed etc...
Care and washing instructions
The product has been designed for long term use and can be machine washed at 40 degrees and re-used many times. In fact the rate of absorbency will increase after the first few washes. We therefore recommend you wash and dry the mat at least once before use and 3-4 times for the mat to reach maximum absorbency. When washing, please do not use fabric softener/conditioner or 2-in-1 products as fabric conditioners can negatively affect absorbency. The mats are best tumble dried or at least finished off in a tumble dryer but they can be line/air dried if you do not have a tumble dryer.
Please note that the mats must be used the correct way up for your dog to get the proper protection. We advise that you pick a different colour for top and bottom, so you easily remember which side is up. For example you might like to choose a patterned fleece for the top and a plain fleece for the bottom, or vice versa.
