A to Z Blogging Challenge - Letter GToday I continue the A to Z Blogging Challenge with the letter G. You can find all my A to Z posts here in case you have missed any.

At the Global Pet Expo in March, I stumbled upon one very cool product (pun intended). There was even a live demonstration.

With the (hopefully) warm weather of spring and summer upon us, pets and humans alike could always use an easier way to cool down.

The Green Pet Shop makes the Cool Pet Pad, which provides a cool surface without any electricity or freezing.

My nerdy side perked up when I heard that. No electricity? How does that work?

The Cool Pet Pad is pressure-activated causing the non-toxic gel inside to work immediately.

The pad’s charge lasts for up to four hours and it recharges automatically with non-use.

Although you don’t need to freeze the pad, you can supercharge it by sticking it in the fridge or freezer and it could last up to 6 hours.

Although it is called the Cool Pet Pad, humans can use the pad too… as long as your pet isn’t using it of course!

Luna was a little confused by the cool temperature initially, so it took some time for her to lay down all the way. We started with paws first and then moved to the whole pad. I just know Luna will love this mat when things finally heat up.

The Cool Pet Pad is great for travel because it can fold up to 1/3 the size and comes with a travel case. It is a bit dense, so it might be too heavy to take in a checked bag (unless you pack much lighter than me).

The pad is made in a medical facility and is durable, but not chew proof. However, because the interior gel is non-toxic, no harm will come to your pet in the event they do chew it.

It is also water resistant and able to be just wiped clean.

Luna has a medium pad, which is 15.7 x 19.7 inches and is recommended for dogs 25 to 69 lbs. Each medium pad costs $39.99. You can find out about the three other sizes on The Green Pet Shop’s website.

In addition to the pad, you can buy an optional cooling pad cover to help protect the pad from scratches. A medium sized cover costs $19.99.

How do you keep your pets cool during warm weather?

    Does it need a harder surface beneath it to work? If not, you might have just found my needed solution to getting Vlad to use a bed! Thank you!

      No it works on carpet and chairs! I haven’t personally compared the effects on hardwood vs carpet, but that might be interesting. I could see it working better on a harder surface, but you can definitely still feel the coolness on carpet or even a couch.

    It looks like Luna is enjoying her Green Pet Shop cooling pad!

  • I bet that’s pretty useful in the summertime, especially for dogs who have a lot of fur and live in a place where it’s quite warm.

  • fortheloveofbeagle

    Have you tried it in the car? I am thinking that my dogs would love it after a romp in the dog park because it gets so hot in Texas!

    • beaglesbargains

      Not yet. It hasn’t been warm enough yet, but I’m planning on it. I think it would work really well after a long hike or other outdoor activities (especially in Texas!)

  • This would be great for my dogs. Especially our older one. He’s prone to getting super hot. I think he’d benefit from it after his walks this summer. Thanks!!

    Well, a/c, of course, my pool and on walks I have my cool collar full of ice. This pad thing might be interesting for my big sister Katie.

    • beaglesbargains

      Hahaha! Do the boys actually slip and slide or do they just sit in it? Love the idea!

  • How nice! It gets quite warm here during the summer, and no yard, so I think that would be a nice addition. Looks easy to keep clean, too.

  • Flea

    Oh sweet! I’m actually looking for the opposite, though, a heating pad which doesn’t require electricity and will stay hot for hours. Hm.

    • beaglesbargains

      Maybe that’s next?

  • Erin Topp

    We have a version of that – it’s old and was given to us by a friend so I’m not sure of the brand. But the dogs love it in the summer!

    We got a Belgium Malanois puppy. He panted constantly and wouldn’t use any of his ten million beds my spouse bought, but preferred the cement floor. He never looked comfortable. He kicked his bed out of the way in his kennel at night to sleep on the hard plastic also. He loves this bed! He has three throughout the house and if you are somewhere he wants to lay down, he will drag his pad in and lay on it. It’s amazing. Really cool product!

      Wonderful! Glad to hear that it’s been helpful!
