I can definitely feel the cooling factor. My dog doesn’t quite use it yet, but she’s done short periods halfway on. The creases and the color don’t match my aesthetic lol.
I bought this originally for my 2 year old labradoodle but she didn’t really catch on to its use. We recently got a puppy though and it’s a LIFE SAVER for keeping her cool. We fold it up and put it in her crate so she can cool off or warm up off of it. When she is laying next to us she sleeps soundly on the pad! We can take it wherever she is and she knows it’s where she can cool down. Mat stays cool for hours in the house, probably only a couple of minutes in the florida sun.
I have two huskies that stay outside so I do everything in my power to keep them cool in the hot months under fans, taking them to the creek and pond to swim to cool off but these mats really do work I was surprised. It doesn’t stay real cold but it definitely helps I’m satisfied!
It took a couple of days for him to figure out this feels good! After our morning walk,living in Florida even mornings are warm and humid in summer. I have the pad at the end of the sofa chaise, which is his spot, he jumps right up and lays on it. Sometimes he even prefers to lay on the pad over the cool tile floor. Great product. I bought the small for my 12 lb buddy. I didn’t buy the cover cause I just wasn’t sure after reading reviews it might compromise the cooling effect. The pad is not soft,which my guy usually prefers but the nylon feeling top doesn’t seem to bother him. Great product!
About 6 (I think it was that long ago not sure) years ago I bought this product from PetSmart called a cool pad, my dog just loved it but I had issues with I could never get the wrinkles out of it, I think it was a return, but she didn't seem to care so why should I? A few months ago I finally had enough with the old one, could no longer clean it and the wrinkles were so bad I don't know how she found it comfortable to lay on so I bought her another one, imagine my surprise when I realized I bought a large for a little 10 lb dog could put 3 of her on it. She loved it but it was not going on the bed so I bought another one making sure this time it was the same size of the one I was getting rid of. So now she has 2 of these awesome products the large one I keep on the floor under the ceiling fan and she spend most of her time there staying cool during the Summer heat and the little one is on the bed where she sleeps. I have to say these are some of the best products I've seen and judging by the one I just threw out last a long time. Money well spent and my dog loves them.
Literally - the coolest. How do they get it to work?? I have no idea but our little senior guy loves it! He is cooling his shoulders on it right now. He gets very hot in the summer and this has been a miracle product to help him beat the California heat.
We had trouble getting Shiloh to sleep upstairs in the summer months. We tried the Cool Pet Pad and the first night she slept all night and did not move. Now when it’s time for bed she gets excited when we pull the pad out from the refrigerator. Excellent product!
Found Green Pet Shop looking through another pet site. I was searching for a cooling mat for our senior dog Xena. The cool pet pad has some great reviews so decided to order. The site is easy to understand and navigate, ordering was easy and we received the cool pet pad as expected. We ordered the medium size and it’s perfect for our 39 pound senior girl (pictures below to show size) We were pleasantly surprised when our senior pup took to the pad almost immediately. The pad was cool to the touch, especially after we had it in refrigerator for an hour before we used it the first time, and it stays cool for quite a long time, our senior pup enjoys laying on the pad. The cover is a great option and recommend it to keep the pad clean and to protect it for long time use. Thinking about buying another cool pad to put in our sons room where she likes to sleep most nights. Would recommend this cool pad to anyone who has pets that need to survive the hot summers.
Review for newly released XL Camo Cooling Pad by REALTREE (mostly)
I already own the blue premium cool pad and when I went to get a few more since they do get hot after 15-20 minutes I ordered these new camo cool pads for a third the price. Size is a bit wider than the original but also a bit shorter. Gel is, well, sludgier.. if that makes any sense. I’ve napped on both and can say I approve both. But the camo gets hot & painful to be on after a while, unlike the original that just stops being cool. For the price you can’t go wrong. Just don’t put in crate as it quickly goes from cooling to cooking unless left unoccupied for a 20 min self recharge. I recommend owning a minimum of 2 and never putting in crate /small enclosed areas. Great for temporary heat relief. Light weight and easy to fold makes perfect for mobile use, easy to relocate or pack away.
I place in refrigerator for a faster recharge.
I’ve tried other brands and only recommend/use the Green Pet Shop for cooling beds; either model are great.
Pictured are XL Original Premuim and newly released XL Camo cooling pads. Beautiful Dog Models are Ginger, American Stafordshire Terrier and Lexi, White German Shepard. Both are approx 60lb dogs. Both are very happy with their cooling pads.
They were panting outside in the shade, then loaded up in the truck on their new Camo pads and fell asleep in minutes!!!

She took to the pad right which is amazing I usually can’t get her to lay on anything.
My dogs love them to cool down and easy to clean but also better if you get the covers for them. Makes it easier to throw them in the washer and helps prevent the 90lb dogs nails from puncturing them. This one seems to be a little thicker than some of the other cheaper mats I have tried.
This is the only brand i buy for my little guy. He’s a 10lb little ball of fluff (morkie) and he has 3 of them around the house. With the heat wave off and on this year these really do come in handy. I’ve purchased them else where before and never knew to actually look them up on the actual website. Love that i have Found The Green Pet Shop because i will be purchasing the cooling mats directly through them. Benny says THANK YOU!!
My dog liked it up until she chewed the border off after about 3 days! It did feel cool to touch and she laid on it often.
Purchased this and the cover over the 4th of July holiday for our Golden Retriever Spike because it was so hot. So far he loves it and has not ripped it which he has done with other brands. Keeps him cool and I'm happy with that as he is also. Would recommend.
Summer in Western Maine has been brutally hot this year, but my dog is keeping her cool thanks to the Cool Pet Pad! She immediately stepped onto the mat and laid down, activating the cooling gel. She loves it…at least when her brother (pictured) doesn’t steal it from her.
Our Anatolian Shepard/Great Pyrenees puppy sleeps in our bedroom on the carpet and he gets so warm. As soon as input this cooling mat down he laid on it and stayed in it all night. We have used it on the floor of the backseat of our truck when we go places and he is very happy. It’s quite durable also I’m very glad I bought it.
I ordered the bed because my Cocker Spaniel got Cushing's Disease and it makes her heated so she is always seeking coolness. She now has a cooling bed next to mine on the floor so she can sleep better. It's a great bed.
Got several mats for my kitties since we live in AZ and it has been a lot hotter then normal.
They are inside kitties. They love the mat usually in the afternoon when it is the warmer in
the house even with the ac. They stretch out and sleep for awhile.
Good investment as far as I am concerned.
Took her a couple of summers to figure out …. first year she dismissed it for the floor. This year she’s all over it. She has a couple. They seem to have shrunk some when in storage. Not sure what that’s about … but work fine. She prefers them without the cover.
As soon as he felt the cool of the mat he laid and wouldn’t get up. He can now enjoy the summer! Highly recommend!
I got my first small pad off of chewy without a cover and it wasn’t a big hit. I Finally, a year later with 3 huskies i bought one XL pad with a green cover from the company’s actual website... THE DOGS LOVE IT!! So much I BOUGHT 3 XL cooling pads & covers!! My husky’s get hot very fast and we have mostly carpeting in our home so they always go to the bathroom or kitchen to lay down. I finally got these to put on their beds or in crates and it’s a LIFE SAVIOR!! I wish i could buy the purple covers or even a pink one, since I’m a little OCD and like knowing which bed belongs to which dog hahah but other than that ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS PRODUCT! It’s so easy to pack up and take with us. We even kept the small cooling pad and put it in our work truck for the dogs to lay on the floor with it. Very happy i found this product!!!
My 60 pound 9 month old golden doodle is very grateful for this cooling mat! When he sleeps in his crate at night I find that he settles quicker in these summer months when it’s hot. It’s a very good buy! Fits very well in his extra large kennel.
