Kong® Dog Crate Mat
Absolute waste of money
I cannot state how severely disappointed I am with this product. $85 for this mat is simply ridiculous. It is by no means "chew resistant" in any way. This is made from soft, cheap foam that is something I would expect to find on a product priced around $15 - at best. Please do not waste your money. I'm disgusted that Petsmart would sell this product at this price and they have just lost a good customer.

Absolutely love it.
Absolutely love it. I have (2) labs and (2) GSPs. They are extremely active and seem to find a way to get very dirty. I can't wash dog bed covers in my washing machine because of my daughters allergies. So I tried this mat and I'm definitely sold. It's true about water and smelly odors not absorbing. It doesn't look like a bed, but my dogs seem to like it. Going back to store again tomorrow to get another. Little pricey, but better than replacing dog beds each month. Thanks Kong

Perfect product for Multi-Use
I have 3 German Shorthair Pointers and I purchased this product because it looked durable and easy to clean. I use in kennel and it does a great job in the crate however in addition have used for multiple uses. I take out of crate and place in back of SUV for traveling. When my dogs are dirty after playing or training the dirt stays on the mat and not on my carpet. I place Mat in the front seat if one of my pups want to ride and the seat does not have to be cleaned. I also clean Crate Mat and place on patio for dogs to lay on instead of concrete. If it rains the Crate Mat while outside it doesn't absorb water so it is fine. It has remained durable and has held its integrity for dogs and they are typically good at tearing up all of the other beds and crate mats I have used. I have purchased 2 more mats for all of my dogs and recommend product.

Only lasted 1.5 weeks - NOT durable.
Within 1.5 weeks, my dog (German Shorthair Pointer/Miniature Poodle Mix) had already chewed/pulled off a sizeable section. There are also areas that also show a lot of wear where the dog's nails have scratched at the mat.
VERY DISAPPOINTED as this was labelled "chew resistant" and "durable". Also a quote from the page, "Ideal for the messy pup that likes to chew" and "Good enough to be called KONG!". I would disagree with all of these statements. This was a complete waste of money. Would NOT recommend this, even if your dog was not a chewer, as of the amount of wear and tear in such a short time just by the nails.
The last crate tray lasted almost two years, and if I had just purchased another one of those I would have spent a fraction of the money. I knew this was a new product when I purchased it, and I took a risk - Really hoping from preventing others from buying such a poor product. I have always thought highly of kong products, so this was just very disappointing.
