Revolutionary Pet Cooling Mat is a Must Have for Summer

Revolutionary Pet Cooling Mat is a Must Have for Summer

We have 2 dogs and they are a mixed breed, standard poodle and Wheaten Terrier (Whoodle). They do not shed so they keep their undercoat and in the summer, the heat takes its toll fast. We do get them groomed but we know if we groom them too short, they get cold too easily. Dog’s do not naturally regulate their own temperature well and so they need help by us in both hot and cold seasons. In the summer, cooling mats for dogs that can overheat in thicker coats are a great item to have on hand. We use this Arc-Chill Pet Cooling Mat by Rywell that is available on Amazon.

This pet self-cooling mat is made of Arc-Chill natural cooling fabric from Japan, which effectively lowers the apparent temperature 3–5°C ( = 5–9°F). It doesn’t have any dangerous chemicals or gels, so no leaking will occur. The magic is in the specific non-toxic fabric and mesh layers. You can actually see the mat working to retain your dogs heat. How you can tell is that when the ambient temperature or the pet’s temperature is higher than 95°F(35°C), the dog mat’s color will lighten. You can wash this by hand or in a washing machine. Take it with you when camping or in car rides.

The nylon-free and non-splintering BetterBone for Dogs helps save the planet

The nylon-free and non-splintering BetterBone for Dogs helps save the planet

Our girls may look sweet and medium in strength but give them a chew toy or stuffie (not allowed anymore due to a vet ER scare) and they act like mighty muscle chewers. I cannot leave much out for them unless we supervise because they will chew until their gums overly bleed and destroy anything not well made. BetterBone dog bones are approved in our home for Maya and Leah. We still only give them when we are home and put them up after a some time but have had zero hazards using them.

BetterBone is a Blue Standard product and as a sustainable brand, you know you are giving a safe product to your dog. If BetterBone pieces do flake off, the good news is that it is designed to do this and it’s 100% natural composition and is safe if consumed. Although, my dogs just spit the small flakes out like they do other chews.

Besides it being safe for my dogs, I love the ingredients and care put into creating these fun bones. They are made with sustainably sourced wood fiber and renewable plant-based oil. The shape is designed to be held well by my dogs and because the end product is softer than standard nylon, their teeth can handle the BetterBone very well. No dairy, nuts, meats, wheat, gluten or fish are used and this is great due to Maya’s many food allergies. Order your dogs BetterBone today!

Polkadog Pet Treats are 100% all-natural and made-in-the-USA

Polkadog Pet Treats are 100% all-natural and made-in-the-USA

It is tough finding treats for Maya as she has several food allergies. When she eats foods that effect her, like chicken, lamb meal and some fruits, she gets a very upset stomach and indigestion. Finding treats that are carefully made with simple ingredients and with proteins and ingredients she can have is tough sometimes. I am stocked up on Polkadog pet treats that should get me through the Holidays. The packaging is adorable and I will need to get some more as gifts for friends. They make great gift basket additions and stocking stuffers!

Maya can have several of these treats and her favorites seem to be the Yappy Howlidays Duck Recipe tube treats. The Holiday packagings are below. Aren’t they adorable?

Why Polkadog Premium Dog Treats?

To start, Polkadog is USA-made (in Boston). Every single treat is made from scratch in small batches and packed by hand, straight from the Polkadog Kitchen at the Boston Seaport. It doesn’t get more fresh than that! Polkadog also has a signature product, their cod skins. They take cod skin that is otherwise discarded from Alaska-caught fish and slowly dehydrate them. There is nothing else added. Just a satisfying crunch of Omega-rich cod skins for dogs to devour. Our dogs love them!

Keep an eye out, as Polkadog will launch their Polkadog’s Season’s Eatings and Polkadog Holiday Mini Tubes for the Holidays real soon. Visit Polkadog to learn more and to stock up!
