Warm weather means lots of fun in the sun with your four-legged friend (dog beach! hiking! farmer's markets!). But you need to know how to keep your dog cool in the summer. After all, it can take mere minutes for your dog to go from comfortable to dangerously overheated.
When temps soar, it's good to have some supplies at the ready to help beat the heat. That’s why we’ve rounded up the best-selling and top-rated cooling products for dogs. From cooling mats and beds to water bowls and fountains, these products are Chewy customer approved.
Keep naps cool on hot summer days with this patented mat that uses a non-toxic gel to absorb body heat and reduce body temperature.

Great cooling pad
By Fran on Sep 20, 2023
Our dog loves this pad, he has two! He uses them all the time and he is a Samoyed so cooling is very important
By MomofTitan on Sep 11, 2023
I bought this for my 8 year old pit mix who has severe elbow dysplasia and loves to lay on the cold tile. I wanted something that would stay cool and be softer than the floor. At first he didn’t use it but after about one week of us moving around near him he began to use it and now, a month later, will go lay on it almost every time he wants to be on the floor. Totally worth it because you can put it anywhere, like in car, outside, a different room, and it really stays cool for a long time.
This pad really works!
By Denise on Sep 7, 2023
My always hot, always panting 14 year old boy can finally get a good night's sleep! This pad stays cool and is fantastic for dogs who overheat easily. Highly recommend!
Summer wear just got a whole lot cooler, literally, thanks to this lightweight cooling vest. Simply wet it with cold water, wring it out and place it on your dog. Velcro closures and Elastofit technology ensure a snug-yet-comfortable fit. Sizes XS-4XL.

This product has been a huge help this sweltering summer for our bully Momo. Very helpful product, totally worth it!!

It has been one day with this cooling vest and I can cry with relief! I have an 80lb, 13 year old golden retriever (bought the 3XL). We live in New England where the summers are hazy hot and humid. We put the vest on her for the first time today all panting and over heating has stopped. I’m sure there will still be days that she spends the day under the AC but she seems so much more RELAXED. so much relief I can’t even put it in words.
Cooper wouldn't take it off.
By Leigh on Jun 16, 2023
Heat here (Southern Texas) is grueling. 1st Time using this, he didn't want to take off. He's ½ Australian Shepperd and ½ Border Collie. He has that AS undercoat. During the summer, he'd actually rather stay inside; too hot. I don't understand how this keeps cool, but it does. He loves it and loves to go outside more. Do you have one for people? LOL
This stylish bandana keeps pets comfortable—and looking cute!—on hot days. Dip it in cold water and securely fasten it around your dog’s neck with the snap closures. The fabric retains water and allows for air flow, creating a cooling effect. But what’s really cool is the secret smiley face pattern that shows up when wet. Sizes S-L.
Our pup loves it
By Elizabeth on Jun 17, 2022
My dog loves wearing any bandana, so it wasn’t difficult to get her to wear it. This one is stitched really well and works as described. It even washes well (cold, hang dry)
My lab/pit/? mix is 65lbs and the Large fits. Her black fur heats up quickly in the sun. The cooling effect worked very well around her neck, but seemed to keep her more comfortable everywhere. I love the smiley indicator so we know to re-wet it. To give you an idea, it is still damp after 40 minutes in 90F+ temps. I can’t wait to test it on longer walks.
Rest easy knowing your dog will sleep comfortably on this orthopedic dog bed from Frisco. It features 1 inch of cooling gel memory foam and a foam core for added support. When the cover gets dirty, remove it and toss it in the washing machine for easy cleanup. Sizes L-2XL.

Koda loves this beddie. She has 3 one in the garage for daytime, one on the deck for evening lounging and one inside for nighttime.
I raise German Shepherds, I buy a lot of beds
By Dianne on Nov 25, 2023
This is the best dog bed I have ever bought, I buy a lot I raise German Shepherds, this is very big and so cusioned extremely well made, I highly recommend this dog bed, I will be getting more.
Orthopedic cooling bed
By Lourdes on Nov 4, 2023
I have purchased two of these beds for my boy with osteoarthritis. He loves his beds and is able to get up easily.
Great for use indoors or outdoors, this elevated pet bed is just the thing to help your furry friend chill out during the summer months. It’s made with a heavy-duty, breathable mesh fabric that can hold up to 200 pounds, and the elevated design allows air to pass underneath. Sizes S-XL.

Bought 1 Bed To Try Out - Now Buying a Second Bed
It's a Race To Get Outside To The Bed
By Kylie on Nov 27, 2023
Great quality material, nice give, comfortable for him to sit and lay on. Weird at first but he warmed up quick!
By Gina on Nov 11, 2023
Big enough for my Great Dane! It does make a stretchy noise like a new bed. Maybe needs broken in a bit. But he likes it. All that matters
There may be no better way for a dog to cool down on a hot day than taking a dip in a doggy pool. This one’s easy to set up: supply unfold and fill with water. The PVC with nylon mesh provides durability while the flamingo pattern provides the charm. Toss in a few water toys for a splash of fun.
I love the ease of this pool!
By Kathryn on Nov 2, 2023
This pool is great. Easy to set up, easy to empty and will withstand my dogs nails. They love it!
XLarge doggie pool
By LAB on Jul 25, 2023
This is a nice quality made pool. You would need to be careful if your dog has sharp nails. Sets up easily and quickly. Plenty of room for my rottweilers and labs. Smaller dogs might need help in and out. Good "wading" pool to beat the heat.
By LindseyandMolly on Jul 16, 2023
I only filled it a little bit so I could see her reaction to it- she loves it! She is also a chewer and tried to chew the bottom- (I didn’t spread it all the way out) and it is very durable for her bites (that I yelled at her for) and her nails
Taking a trip to the dog beach or going for a dog-friendly hike? Don’t forget to bring this dog water bottle. It’s insulated to keep water cold and the cap conveniently doubles as a water bowl. Use the carabiner to attach it to your backpack for on-the-go hydration.
By Johanna on Aug 21, 2023
This water bottle with drinking lid is the best. The pups can drink easily from the smart lid/cup design and the bottle holds plenty of water for a long walk. Love it and it’s snazzy because the bottle is orange and the lid black!!!
best I've found!!
By sisword on Jul 15, 2022
I've tried a few products to give my dog water on walks/hikes, and never thought they worked great. Then I found this Kong H2O, and it's the best!! The clever design of the drinking receptacle being built onto the lid works well, the shape of the receptacle is really easy for my old lab to drink from, and on a long walk, if he doesn't finish the water in receptacle, I can just pour it back into the bottle rather than wasting it. Highly recommend!
I love it!
By Schooner on Jul 4, 2022
I'm a Cockapoo, 6 months old. Love having water along on outings with my fur mom, especially cold water -- Yum! Got to have a cold drink every day for the last two weeks and the water bottle is doing just fine. Mom put a strap thru place where clip was attached so she can carry it over her shoulder. Much easier to manage. When I'm a bit older maybe I can carry it . . . ?
Staying hydrated is especially important during the summer. This stainless steel bowl features double-wall insulation to keep water cool and a non-skid rubber bottom to prevent slipping and sliding (leave that for the doggy pool!). Available in 4-cup or 6-cup sizes.
By BBB on Jun 28, 2023
Exactly what I wanted. Beautiful, easy to clean, doesn’t move around (though I also have it on a silicone mat). Our new giant labradoodle rescue pup loves it.
Very nice bowl
By Vicki on Feb 22, 2023
Ordered 2 of these for my daughter's dog, they are great quality and perfect size for a medium size pup (35-40 lbs). Love the non-skid feature and cleaning is a breeze!
By Haven on Oct 22, 2022
I bought these as my doxie pup turned 1, and decided to upgrade his puppy bowls to his final big boy bowls. Hopefully he’ll have them for the majority of his life. They are on the larger side compared to a doxie, but I appreciate it especially for holding a good amount of water. They are beautiful, simple and very shiny. They fit my aesthetic very nicely, and they are easy to clean. I also bought a nice rounded mat to put under them as well. Would definitely recommend!
Encourage your dog to stay hydrated with this electric pet water fountain. The patented free-falling water stream with adjustable flow entices your four-legged friend to drink more. Plus the filter removes odors and particles to keep water fresh. Comes in 7 sizes, from 40 ounces to 450 ounces.
By Jill on Nov 9, 2023
This upgraded fountain design is great. It’s works great and will be easier to clean than the last one I had.
Quality item, excellent service from Chewy
By Nicole on Nov 9, 2023
The fountain is great. Well made, easy to put together and use. Runs quietly. I appreciated not having to constantly rinse and refill my dog’s water dish. Purchased for my dog with Cushing’s who is constantly drinking because of his disease. He is not doing well these days and thought it’d help. Unfortunately, he refuses to use it and went without water. Which isn’t good for any dog especially one with Cushing’s. So while it didn’t work for us it’s still a good item that might work great for a different dog. I think most dogs would probably really enjoy something like this and to have good quality water. I wanted to return it...
Very sad out come
By Donna on Oct 22, 2023
I purchased this for my sister’s cats so they could experience this wonderful machine that I have for our cats. I have had several myself over the years. However, she has the same machine as well. Could you, please, e-mail me a return label at your earliest convenience? Love doing business with Chewy.
We, also, had one of our dear cats pass away last evening after a long illness. His name was Archie and we are all devastated. He was cherished by our whole family and will be greatly missed, even by Beanie and Boo. Thank you for always being there for us. Happy Holidays.
Ice cream is a summertime staple. This doggy-approved one is made with only five ingredients—including peanut butter, Fido’s favorite flavor—and is lactose free for easy digestion. Scoop some up for your pooch for a delish and refreshing treat.
Easy to make, super yum!
By Sjnwj384 on Sep 29, 2023
PB flavor. Giving a few spoons a day as a special treat. She goes crazy once I take it out to thaw! It was very easy to make it, and I can tell she enjoys it. Will try carob flavor in the future!
Not a Drop Left
By Angela on Sep 20, 2023
I got this for my dog, Marbles, for her birthday. She LOVED it! Now she sprints to the kitchen every time we open the freezer. Gonna have to get some more!
By Mary on Sep 12, 2023
This Peanut flavor Ice Cream is my Shih Tzu's favorite, he just loves it!! Easy to prepare, quick and easy...
