    Default Would you buy this?

    Abby and the kids love playing outside. We spend alot of time outdoors around our horses and chickens. We're jsut really outdoorsy and want Abby to be as comfortable as possible. There is a kiddy pool back there that the kids play in, but Abby really doesn't want anything to do with it, and there isnt much shade back there.

    I had this idea of getting her a cooling mat just for outside for this very purpose..and some sort of crate for shade..but needed something very portable for when we travel or do other outdoor activities.

    After looking around I came across this

    http://www.k9koolee.com/cgi-bin/shop/Home.html

    It is waaay more than I was wanting to spend. BUT it looks like it would come in handy just about anywhere we wanted to take her, and very portable. A plus is that its the shade and the mat in one unit..not me dragging a crate around and a mat everytime we go to the barn.
    I just love the shade on it.

    Ok, I really want one.
    Does anyone have one, or have you guys ever seen these before?

    If I was highly active outdoors then perhaps but I can't stand the heat so we stay indoors. If my babies go out it's just for short periods and to take care of business.
    If you do get it I'd love to see a pic of Little Abby in it.


    Cheerio mates!

    Yesss, we camp often in high desert parks ( Joshua tree, etc). Any outdoor trip is a dance if you bring any dog, especially a bully. We just came back from camping in Utah, and I opted to board Lupe because I wasn't comfortable with the temps....

    My only worry would be that having this type of cooling situation would make people feel "safe" in outdoor situations that are not really safe..... That said, us Humans could have totally used this on our last trip No shade in Arches National Park campground! (but a stunning place).

    For camping etc, I would say that I would go for it, I dont know if you noticed 50% off sale, so the big one would be $100.00 instead of $198.00 or whatever.

    I don't know that I would buy that only because of the price, but I was thinking about buying a Koolcollar for Mac. http://www.koolcollar4dogs.com/

    On the hottest of days, even when there's gloriously cool and shady grass to lounge on and a pool to splash in, Bo will sit directly in the sun --- and pant. And pant. When I try to MAKE HIM sit in the shade, he will quickly return to the sun. A few of these episodes and he's sent into the house where it's cool.

    I'm guessing he wouldn't be smart enough to sit on a cool mat if I had one.

    I'm thinking Bo would sit in the sun and stare at it...

    @RaRett Ah! You got me! I just saw the sale....got the large ordered! Hooray! I'll let everyone know how she likes it when it comes in.

    I was thinking of buying a kool collar as well, but Ive seen some made by another company that's a harness...so im not sure which one Im going to get. The harness can be heated or cooled...but I dont think you can put actual ice in it like the kool collar.
    I like the vest too but Im scared of it weighing them down..not sure about that.
