    One of my friends was interested in getting a "dog cooling bed" for her dog. It got me interested as well and I was wondering if anyone has bought one for their dog before? How well did it work?

    I know there are water ones, gel ones and then others that you plug in. What would you recommend?

    Oh yeah, I knew about them. I bought one before, but I wouldn't get that particular one again. I tried to find a site that showed it, but I can't find it anymore. Hopefully, they've improved it.

    Yes, it's a great way to keep your pet cool. There's plastic ones & cloth ones. Here's a few random sites, but I'd check around to make sure which site has the best prices:

    I've also bought my dog a cooling collar before. You wet it & can put it in the freezer, then wrap it around the neck. It connects together by velcro:

    Sounds like a good thing for a dog that struggles with heat.

    I just wonder if they really work. There is one I keep seeing called the Cool Bed III. I guess you fill it with water and then there is some sort of (non-toxic) gel substance that keeps it cool...I'm not sure how it really works or if it really does keep cold. But I guess $35-40 from PetCo isn't that bad of a purchase...

    Upsadaisy Hey, I did see something called the "Chillow" (haha) and even though it was advertised with the dog cooling beds, the way it was described was for human use! So if you want to look into that...

    Speaking of keeping cool....anyone have a humidifier? Do those things really work? We're thinking of getting one for our room, because even if the air is on, for some reason our room never gets a smooth flow of nice cool air!!

    That product looks great. Haha, Miss Wull and tb71. Chillow - neat name.

    Hope I didn't hijack the thread.....

    Our little dog doesn't seem to mind the temperature either way. I do keep the air-conditioner set at 77 (which is too hot for me, but more affordable than going lower), which seems to work for the dog and the cats. It's necessary 'cause it's 95 degrees outside every single day from June through October or so.
