Summer can be a time when dogs get a bit hot under the collar, many dog owners have started to buy their dogs a personal paddling pool that they are free to splash around in and be as boisterous as they like in the hope of cooling them down.
As with many products in the pet industry there are a range of pools available for different budgets. Ranging from the start up dog paddling pool on sale at under £30 to the more extravagant bone shaped pool costing around £250 there are dog friendly paddling/splash pools designed to allow even the fussiest of dogs to cool off in style this Summer.
All of the dog friendly paddling pools featured below are still some of the very best on the market, however as a brand that are always surveying the canine market to identify the latest and best products for your customers dogs we had a look at the dog paddling pool products that have been added in the last 12 months to see if there were any additional products that could be added to our original list.
The Croci Dog Swimming Pool is one of best new dog paddling pools to have been added this Summer. It has been cleverly designed to appeal to dog owners who are looking for a larger than average dog pool as it measures in at 80×20 cm.

The Scruffs® Cool Mat
Although not strictly speaking a ‘dog paddling pool’ we know some dogs are not keen on water so this alternative water free cooling mat had been designed to cool your hot pet down without them having to confront their fear of water. Its also of course a great item that can be used inside the home if you have no air condition or live in a flat with no outside space. Designed to comfortably reduce your dogs temperature in warmer weather the dog cooling mat is filled with a non toxic gel that typically maintains a temperature that is 5-10 degrees lower than the room temperature. When in use the mat is able to maintain this reduced temperature for around 1 hour, to re use simply remove the dog for an hour and the mat will automatically reset itself back to the lower temperature.
Easy to set up, no need for a fridge, comes in 3 sizes, durable non toxic.
Only holds lower temperature for one hour
