Who likes a soggy bed? Not me, and neither do our pets. Yes, plenty of dogs like to play in puddles and sometimes roll in the mud, but when it comes time to sleeping or staying safe, wet is out. Keeping a kennel dry is one of the biggest challenges when having to leave the dog unsupervised.
Once potty trained, everything will be okay, unless there is an accident which happens. But until then, and if the dog can’t wait until you get home, you need to think about waterproof dog crate mats to make your life easier and your pets comfier.
There are disposable pads that you can buy, but then there is a lot of garbage to put out every week, and you could end up spending a small fortune depending on how many times you have to change them. Plus, urinating is not the only way a pen gets wet. Some dogs like to bang around their bowls, so if you have left the water, it may get spilled.
A water-resistant dog bed mat is also going to help protect the dog’s paws. Some crates have the spacing too wide in the metal or plastic, and the feet fall through.
This is unsafe and uncomfortable for long periods. Usually, a bed or some form of coverage will prevent this from happening.
Stylish Waterproof Dog Crate Pads Huge Size Use In Car Or Home
Perfect for senior dog incontinence or puppy training. There are two in the box so that you always have one ready when the other is in the wash. Even if you don’t need to put them in a cage, they look great on the floor or rug. Plus, they are anti-slip, which is safer for the dog and will stay in place instead of being somewhere the dog isn’t. These soaker pads are quite large, and they come with a 100% money-back guarantee. You can’t beat that for service!
Environmentally Friendly Materials Waterproof Dog Crate Mats Bathtub Wash & Wipe Dry
This mat is more like plastic, but it is softer and made from polyester fiber. You can easily wash it down with the showerhead or throw it in the bathtub under the tap. You could also use the garden hose if the weather is nice. The material and construction prevent mold and mildew from growing, which is a great idea. Both are so hard to clean and not very healthy to ingest. The company even offers a ten-year guarantee for the pressure points on the mat.
Quilted Washable Waterproof Dog Crate Mats & Pads Non-Toxic
This is a great sponge to use. Not only does it hold four cups of liquid, but it is also super comfy. It is large for even the biggest pets and has a cute paw print design. The quilted top layer means the dog can curl up and rest, while the underneath is slip-resistant, so it doesn’t move all around. There are two layers of absorbent material between the top and bottom to keep the crate clean and dry. The company has spent time on research and development, as they have their own proprietary product. The pads last up to three hundred washes and are durable. Great for all kinds of pet spills.
Thick Foam Waterproof Dog Crate Pads & Mats Supports Large Dogs
What I like about this pad is that it is more a cushion that just a thin mat. The Orthopedic foam helps support the dog, especially around the joints where they get sore from lying in the same position. It is made from wear-resistant materials, which is good when you have a dog like mine that wants to dig and make a nest of all his stuff. It comes in five different sizes and has a removable cover for washing. Unless your dog can work zippers, he won’t be able to get it off.
Velour Fleece Gel Cooling Waterproof Dog Crate Mats Resists Bacteria & Mildew
What impressed me about this mat is that it comes in five sizes, with the small being other companies’ large. It goes up to a real big size called the jumbo. You can really cover a large area if you need to.
The fleece makes it toasty and comfy, while the memory foam provides support. The special gel traps the liquid and keeps it away from the dog, furniture, and floors.
Try it in your car or any room in the house. And if the dog likes to sleep on the couch or chair, the smaller one would be ideal.
