Common Dog Cooling Bed Questions

Here are some common questions asked about potential cooling bed buyers.

Are they easy to clean?

These beds are very easy to maintain, the materials often require only a warm water and soap wash then rinse. You can dry the mats and beds with a large towel easily. Unlike normal, foam beds, cooling beds do not absorb stains, smell, nor fluids.

Are they safe from chewing?

While most cooling mats are chew-resistant, it’s best to avoid your puppies under the age of one to use a cooling bed because of their sharp teeth and irresistible urge to chew on things.

Can a dog cooling bed be used outdoors?

Of course, as long as there’s a firm, flat surface for the bed to rest on and placed away from direct sunlight, you can use it anywhere outdoors such as a covered porch, garage entrance, deck, or even on a pick-up bed.

In fact, if you use it for overnight, outdoor activities, the cool air and mist is sufficient to recharge a warmed up bed for the next day.

Can I put a sleeve or cover?

Sure, just purchase a fitted cover for additional comfort. Just make sure you use natural fabrics so the cooling effect of the bed doesn’t get blocked.

How do I store it especially when summer’s over?

The bed doesn’t need to be kept during winter. Simply putting a cover with traditional warming materials such as fleece or thick cotton will keep the dog cosy while still retaining the comfortable support the bed provides.

Remember that dogs have fur for a reason, they’re capable of keeping themselves warm most of the time unless they got wet. The cooling bed will still a much more comfortable place for your pet to rest on than a cold floor.

If you really want to just use the dog cooling mat as a bed, turn it into an air bed by simply drain all the fluids and inflate the bed with air!
