TheGreenPetShop Cool Pet Pad
I bought this for me not my dog. No, I'm not kidding, and this is not one of those joke reviews. The pad works wonderfully well. Cools on pressure contact, recharges on its own. I've been suffering nighttime hot flashes that won't let me sleep, and using this pad has let me get the wonderfully deep, dreaming sleep that I've been missing. I bought the large pad and placed it under the fitted sheet on my bed. The first night I used it long-ways. The gel does get warm after sleeping on it several hours. From now on I'll use it the other way around and let half of it hang off the side of the bed so I can turn it to the cool end when I get up during the night. As I get up multiple times, I'll always have a cool side on which to sleep. I think the company should expand its customer demographic and sell to menopausal women. I'm even thinking about purchasing another so I can switch between them during the night. That way I can enjoy the full torso cooling each time. I cannot stress enough how much I love this product for relieving the discomfort for which I bought it.

Do not purchase. This cooling pad isn't cool!
I purchased this Cool Pet Pad for my dog yesterday and was extremely disappointed. The information on the box mentioned it would remain cool for three hours. However, it was only slightly cool for a few minutes after taking it out of the box. I even sat on it for over 30 minutes thinking my dog wasn't heavy enough to activate the gel, but that wasn't the case. The pad wasn't the least bit cool.
I placed the pad inside the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to cool it off, then placed it inside a pillow case. However, now it was too cold for my dog and he wouldn't remain on the mat.
I'm returning it to the store this evening. I wanted to like it, but the temperature definitely isn't cool. It's no different than sitting on a regular pad/cushion.

A Must Have for the Summer!!
My "Puppy Daddy" brought this home for our 7 month old Pomeranian. He bought the Medium size. She didn't take to it at first, I think because of the feeling of it on her paws. It's very slick, it's plastic. After reading several reviews on other web sites I covered the pad with a old pillowcase. As soon as I put it on the couch with the pillowcase she was on it. We live on the 2nd floor and the summers get very hot, this is a must have to get through the season.
