Polar Pooch

26 Votes

Rate this product

Polar Pooch is a self-cooling mat that dogs can use to relieve themselves from excessive warmth on very hot days. This bright blue mat comes in three sizes ( small, medium, and large ), so it's suitable for all dogs, and if your mat's big enough, more than one can lie on it at once. The mat can be placed anywhere indoors or outdoors, and once a dog lies down on it, it'll stay cool for up to three hours at a time.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Polar Pooch is $19.99 plus $7.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Polar Pooch by paying an extra fee of $12.99 for a total price of $40.97.

Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page:

How It Works

Each mat contains a pressure-activated gel core that will begin cooling the entire thing the moment your dog's body touches it. Anytime your dog moves to adjust their position, the core will be reactivated again and the cooling process will start all over. After your dog leaves the mat and doesn't touch it for 15 minutes, the cooling process will recommence immediately when they return to the apparatus, too.


  • Provides Long Lasting Relief

    Once your dog has positioned themselves on the mat, the mat will provide them with cooling relief for up to three hours at a time. If your dog leaves the mat for 15 minutes or longer, that three hours' time will reset to zero.

  • For Indoor or Outdoor Use

    Indoors, you can place your dog's mat on the floor, in their crate, on a piece of furniture, or virtually anywhere else they like to sit. If your dog enjoys hanging out outdoors, the mat can be used on pavement, grass, or even sand.

  • Portable

    When you want to take your dog to the park or away with you on a trip, this mat is light and compact enough to be transported in the car without difficulty. If you plan on walking to a nearby destination instead, you likely won't have a problem carrying the mat in one hand and holding your dog's leash in the other.

  • Wipes Clean

    In the event that your mat gets covered in doggie sweat, drool, or even waste, you'll be able to quickly wipe it clean, using water and any damp cloth.

  • Three Sizes Available

    This mat comes in small, medium, and large sizes, so if you have a tiny pooch, it's probably best that you go with a small. On the other hand, the largest size is ideal if you have a big dog or plan on having two dogs use one mat at the same time.

Positive Points

  • Helps Prevent Heat Stroke

    Pets can suffer from heat stroke or become dehydrated when subjected to extremely warm temperatures, but allowing your dog to cool down with Polar Pooch will make this an unlikely possibility.

  • Batteries Not Required

    To operate your Polar Pooch mat, you won't need batteries or electricity, as the gel within each mat will enable it to create a cooling effect completely on its own. You won't even need to put the mat in the refrigerator for any length of time.

  • Good for Older Dogs

    Senior dogs suffering from arthritis will find the cooling of the joints that they experience when lying on this mat especially beneficial.

  • Comes With Crazy Critter

    Each mat comes with a Crazy Critter dog toy that's shaped like a small animal, such as a fox, and contains no stuffing that a dog can rip out and strew around.

  • Kids May Enjoy

    If you've got young children, they may enjoy cooling themselves down by lying on this mat with the dog or even on their own.

Negative Points

  • Only One Shade Available

    The Polar Pooch mat only comes in bright blue, so if you get more than one mat in the same size for your household, you may have trouble telling the two apart.

Critical Advice

Cats can use this mat to cool down in the heat, too. However, you should watch a cat closely as they use it to ensure they don't start tearing it apart with their claws, as they tend to be more active with their claws than dogs are.

Wise Advice

Do not buy Polar Pooch online before searching Amazon.

I Regret Buying it!

Noooo! Not a good product! I walked out of room to come back within a matter of several minutes and my dog had chewed right through it, with gel leaking out of it!

I Recommend Buying it!

Great for my Senior Granddog!

My 14 yr old granddog, black lab, Chloe, has hot flashes and likes to rest in front of the fan. I purchases the Polar Pooch mat for this, not thinking about how great it would be for her arthritic legs. In just one use the coolness calmed some of the inflammation in her hind legs and hips. I have recommended to all my animal rescue friends!
