These mats help regulate your pet’s body temperature and provide a cold spot to hang out on! Owners can use these alone or as crate liners; all are made with plastic lining so pet parents can wipe off any dirt. These are our top picks for pet cooling mats on the market right now!

Available in X-Small to X-Large, these pressure-activated mats begin cooling once your pup steps on them and are the easiest to use and store.
