    Default cooling pad/mat

    We've been having wonderful weather this week as summer is kicking in. Temperature is about 22-30C (71-86F) already waaay too hot for Bulldogs. I want to buy a cooling pad anyone has any experience? i saw this one that doesn't need water nor to be refrigerated for the cooling effect to work. also saw cooling vests. just wanna know if it's worth buying stuff like this? Thank you guys!

    I bought this one and my 2 would not get near it. It sprung a leak a few weeks after we got it so it is not very puncture resistant

    Please be very cautious with cooling pads. We had a member have her baby die after ingesting the cooling material. I would get a coola roo bed instead.

    My dogs always had padded beds. I got a coolaroo as an extra-thinking they wouldn't use it. They all love it! Good idea @brutus77

    Just bought a coolaroo bed based on the suggestions here. Koozer loves his orthopedic bed but it has a sheepskin type top on it, so in the summer it is too hot for him to sleep on. I like the idea of having the coolaroo for him at night in the summer. Thanks for the post!

    what size did you order? can't seem to find the actual bed with the frame available here. all i found were replacement covers in amazon.

    I agree w/Rosalie @brutus77 we have a member here that her baby ate the supposed "non-toxic" material and he died… it was absolutely horrible!!! I would use EXTREME caution w/those cooling pads if you choose to get them...

    I ended up buying the Large size because I'd rather it be too big than too small. I bought mine literally 10 minutes ago on Amazon. I searched "Coolaroo Dog Bed" and ended up buying the first one on the list...sold by coolaroo. Let me know if you need any more info. Good luck!
