    Think it's because they can air out from underneath and cool off better, Loki will choose to sleep on something like that over a couch/pillow/bed any day for that reason

    Yeah thats one reason why I like those beds. Although cooling off is the last thing my dogs need down here. Its freezing here at the moment. My dogs will sleep on almost anything though

    Some nights he'll lay on the couch beside me if it's cool enough, but usually he avoids it as he overheats quickly. In the summer he'll pretty much only sleep on the tiles.

    Yeah my dogs would do the same if we had tiles!

    Have occasionally considered packing a few loose tiles when I travel with him for him to sleep on

    I have one of these for my dog - I made a cotton cover for it out of a dead flannelette sheet, thinking I need to buy one for myself...

    Mine is one of the "shop soiled" ones, there's small black marks - which haven't spread or done anything and don't smell of anything.

    It's very nice to lie on. I put it away in winter tho.

    Interesting .. though I'd be worried about him jumping or scratching it or something and popping it .. after seeing what he did to his other bed

    jumping or scratching it or something and popping it
    Fair call, so far so good, but my dog is not a puppy any more and she has other things to chew. And it's not fluffy... ie the temptation or feel that you get with ripping the insides out is not there. I think I'd be game to leave it on the floor with her choice of bath mats and carpet - she could chew any of these and some of my bath mats have holes in from when she was little, but she's stopped.

    So I guess if your dog will chew a bath mat - then don't leave a gel pad cool mat out...

    Not so concerned about him chewing it as possible jumping or scratching on it. I've never owned one so I have no idea about the durability of the material they're made of. Probably will look into them though if they work, as I know sometimes he's "irritated" when it's warm.

    Just ordered one of the large shop soiled ones, looks like it was the last one See how it goes. If he likes sleeping on tiles then he should love this, especially when I'm visiting my parents, their floor is all carpet.
