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.
I an not sure how well it is keeping him ...we are in Oregon and we are having an extremely hot summer...I think if we were in the 80s would be great but its in the upper 90s and its not making much of a difference .... GREAT Product Quality and Shipping was fast...its my Dog ;-)
Very nice mat. Heavy, durable and cool to the touch. I purchased this for my French Bulldog, he is an air conditioned dog and over heats easily. His previous mat is worn out, the new mat is much better quality.
I'm really glad I purchased this from an Instagram ad. Sometimes those are a huge dud. But this one is great! My pup can be slow to try out new things sometimes, but he took to this right away. If he's laying on the couch with us and gets too hot we'll pick him up and put him on his mat where he'll lay for a while and it cools him right off. I love that it doesn't have to charge or plug in or sit in the freezer. It's always ready to cool him off!
My black lab girl was going through chemotherapy, for lymphoma, which made her run hot. This cooling mat was the perfect solution! In fact, it was recommended by a new friend across the country whose dog was also diagnosed with lymphoma. And it’s one of the top-rated mats! My girl’s bed is queen size to provide plenty of space for her to shift through the night. More often than not, she sleeps on the cooling mat part of her bed. I bring it out to the living room after morning and she lays on it most of the day. I even tried the mat - amazing how quickly it cools when resting my leg on it. I highly recommend the Green Pet Shop! And I just found out they are a small business - all the more reason to support them! (And by the way, my girl dog is doing great!)
It is very durable, the only issue we are having is a part of the outer strip is not sewn onto the main part.
I wasn't sure my pup would like this cooling pad, but he does! It's smooth and cool, just like the tile floor he loves to lay on. It gives him relief on these very hot days. And it's very well made... heavy so it doesn't slide or bunch up, with well-sewn trim all around. I'm very happy I bought it for him.
We have a Samoyed puppy and live in the south. The two really don’t mix, but what can you do? We purchased a cooling mat hoping it wound help us through the summer. Apparently, she loved it because that spot quickly became a favorite nap spot. We ordered a second for the top of her bed. We ordered a third for her raised bed on our porch and just recently bought a fourth for a second nap spot. I know we sound like crazy pet people, but these mats truly do work! They allow our pup to rest comfortably for hours at a time. She immediately heads to a mat when first in from outside on hot days. Within minutes of lying down you can feel the coolness of the mat. I highly recommend for anyone with a hot breed. Also- the cover didn’t work for us. Maybe because our pup was used to a mat without one. I would say it isn’t needed. Plus, the logo on it makes it look more promotional than retail.
Hanna loves her new cooling mat! She is older and very furry, and it is often hot and humid here in the summer. Even with her summer haircut, she was panting almost non-stop, even through the night. I put the mat on top of her regular bed and no more panting! She is comfortable all day, and most of the night. I'm ordering a second pad so she can move to a fresh cool bed as often as she needs. Huge quality of life improvement for my Hanna dog!
Teddy has had his cooling for about 2 months and he is so happy with it! It's been in the 90s and high humidity so he's on it all the time. Great purchase.
My dog has Cushings and is always hot. She has been laying on this mat since it arrived! At first she would not lay on it and then I made a cover with an old cover with a sheet and she lays on it all day. She loves it!
