Swerve it at your peril: your dog won’t thank you for doing so. These cooling mats are just the thing for those sultry days and nights.
Discount store B&M is selling what is perhaps the most useful accessory since the paddling pool: a cooling mat measuring 60cm wide and available in a range of zany colours. Perfect for the dog (or cat) that finds those humid summer moments just a little too unbearable.
The shop also sells a £14 cooling crate mat which measures 85cm x 52cm. Aldi sells the same gel-filled, chill-able mat.
As usual, reports are already coming in of dogs overheating, and the summer sun has only properly visited the UK over the course of one week so far. Year after year, charities and pet shops implore pet owners to be more responsible. But clearly the message is not getting through to some.
Consider a purchase of one of these budget-line life savers, especially if you plan to leave the house for a long period of time.
Be safe, not sorry!
