In hot temperatures, there’s nothing more comforting for dogs than a cooling pad. Dog cooling pads typically work with a self-cooling gel and breathable fabric, requiring no water, electricity, or refrigeration. How do you choose the right one for your furry friend? To start, look for a pad that suits the size of your dog. Then, check to make sure the pad is easy to clean and can be folded or stored away when it’s no longer in use. Cooling pads come in a variety of colors and patterns, so you can buy one that matches your indoor or outdoor home decor. Finally, it’s worth verifying how long the cooling effect lasts. Most models average 3-4 hours. Depending on the size and durability, prices range from $8 to $70.
