HYDRO COOLING MAT or The Dog Cooling Mat
The Hydro Cooling Mat™ employs a “Triple Layer Cooling Design” that includes a waterbed cushion, a FlexiFreeze® Ice Sheet (equal to nearly 8 trays of ice) and a 1/2” thick insulating foam insert. Together they make a very effective, long-lasting cooling solution for your dog that has 10x the cooling power of gel pads. This veterinarian approved product is powered by PURE WATER and contains no harmful chemicals or gels.
Designed to be strong and portable, the Hydro Cooling Mat™ goes where you go. Use it outdoors, in cars, SUV’s, and RV’s, or bring it inside to provide a cool and soothing oasis for your dog. Since we all know dogs will be dogs, the Hydro Cooling Mat™ is machine washable.
CoolerDog dog cooling products are created to be the most effective way to cool your dog. Created with the help of veterinarians, each product is designed with a dogs physiology in mind. Dogs don’t sweat like humans so the best way to keep dogs cool is with physical cooling.
The Hydro Cooling Mat™ is a dog cooling mat powered by 88 FlexiFreeze ice cubes. 10x more effective than a gel pad at cooling your pet.

HOW OUR HYDRO COOLING MATS WORK
The Hydro Dog Cooling Mat uses the heat absorbing power of thawing ice to help keep dogs safe and comfortable. The Hydro Cooling Mat has a durable, machine-washable outer shell that has three inner pockets. Each pocket holds a component which performs a specific, key function.
The top layer is a waterbed cushion. By itself, the waterbed cushion doesn’t have tremendous heat absorption capability. Its functions in this application are to provide a soft, comfortable barrier between the ice and the dog while distributing the heat absorption capacity of the ice evenly throughout the Hydro Cooling Mat.
The middle layer is a FlexiFreeze® Ice sheet. It is the cooling engine of the Hydro Cooling Mat. The FlexiFreeze® Ice Sheet contains 88 completely sealed ice cubes made with pure water. That’s the equivalent of nearly 8 trays of ice. We use water because frozen water absorbs more heat, as it thaws, than any other material known to mankind. Since dogs cool off from their feet and bellies, it is important that they have a cool surface upon which to lie down.
The bottom layer is thick closed-cell foam insulation. The purpose of the insulating layer is to prevent the heat from the warm floor from thawing the FlexiFreeze® Ice Sheet more quickly. The insulation helps keep the work being done by the thawing ice focused towards helping draw heat off of the dog’s body through its belly and feet.
WHY USE FLEXIFREEZE?
FlexiFreeze is made right here in the USA using scientifically formulated film filled with 100% pure WATER. Why WATER? Because frozen WATER is exponentially more effective than gel at absorbing heat as it thaws. We use WATER because it just works better.
Why use water?
We use water instead of any other material because it is efficient, safe, clean, green, and inexpensive. We don’t use chemicals, animal fats, or oils (vegetable or petroleum based) because they are less efficient at absorbing heat than the alternative.
How long will the Hydro Cooling Mat be effective?
Depending on heat and humidity, the Hydro Cooling Mat will be effective for up to 4 hours.
How do I know which size of each product will fit my dog best?
We have sizing charts available for the Cooling Vest & Collar, Hydro Cooling Mat, and Pup-up Shade Oasis.
