A Cool Pad for Your Cool Dog

I was recently at a dog show, and one of the vendors was selling a cooling pad for dogs. It seemed like a great idea, but the small pad retailed for $90, which was a bit steep. I liked the idea, so when I was back in front of my computer, I googled “cooling pads for dogs” and found thegreenpetshop.com. They have created a line of eco-friendly products for animals, including the Cool Pet Pad. It requires no electricity, water, or refrigeration. The cooling pad is activated by your dog’s weight and recharges automatically after a short period of non-use, or you can supercool it by putting it in the fridge.

I purchased a size large for my Irish Setter from Petsmart for CDN $54.99. The company sells them online for USD $ 24.99 – 84.99. They are also available on Amazon.

The galley on my boat stays much cooler than the back deck, so I replaced the dog bed with the cooling pad, and my dog didn’t hesitate. He lay down on the pad and was out like a light. We were anchored in a bay with no wind, and the temperature was getting unbearable. All the humans tried out the pad and agreed it was the coolest spot on the boat. I think this is a great product to have on board.
