Travel mat for a dog

When choosing accessories for my pet, I always think carefully about the decision. I want the selected product to entirely meet my and my dog’s expectations. I like universal solutions, so when I came across travel dog mats, I knew they would work perfectly in our case.

My dog accompanies me almost everywhere. Whenever I have the opportunity to take him somewhere with me, I always try to do so. Therefore, the bedding you can quickly and conveniently take with you was a bull’s eye for me.

Interestingly, we use this mat when we embark on a long journey. It also works great on the balcony or in the park on a sunny afternoon.

Characteristics of the travel mat

You may not know what a travel mat is precisely. If so, I am going to answer you. I hope to dispel all your doubts.

My four-legged friend has a LOFT travel mat from Bowl & Bone Republic. It’s unique because you can roll it up quickly and conveniently. The whole thing is fastened with press studs so that the mat does not unfold in any way during transport.

The handle built into it is a great help in moving the mat from place to place. Thanks to this, I can carry the mat very comfortably and hold my dog’s leash.

The compactness of the travel mat, while maintaining its high comfort when my canine is lying on it, is a perfect combination. Before that, I used to take my dog’s blanket everywhere, which wasn’t always convenient. Besides, putting it outside meant I had to spend a lot of time cleaning it.

The mat’s advantage is a material that is much easier to clean than blankets’.

Which travel mat to choose

You are considering buying your dog’s travel mat and do not know which model to choose. My dog has already tried several different models of mats before we found a perfect option.

Design of a dog mat

Currently, my dog uses the LOFT travel mat from Bowl & Bone Republic in a beautiful graphite shade. It has been with us for a long time and is still in excellent condition.

If a loft or industrial design is something you are looking for in dog accessories, you will like this mat. I must admit that the appearance of my dog’s accessories matters to me. I focus on those that are comfortable and pleasant to use for him and also please my eye.

When looking for classic solutions in dog accessories, pay attention to the CLASSIC travel mat from Bowl & Bone Republic. That is, in turn, a solution for those dog owners who focus on elegant solutions. The classics are always on top. The classic mat is made of a soft-touch material, available in many different classic shades. Even the most demanding dog will find something just right for me.

The size of the dog mat

A common problem dog owners face when choosing any bedding for their four-legged friend is its size. So how big should a dog mat be to meet your dog’s needs fully?

First, you should notice that the dog mat does not have to be so large that it can lie down on it completely stretched from the back to the front paws. I’m sure your dog doesn’t sleep that way at all.

The dogs curl up or adopt other such poses during sleep. If you want to know more about your four-legged friend’s sleeping position, I refer you to my other post.

Therefore, the mat for your dog does not have to be overly large. Indeed, there is no need for it to be greater than him.

Of course, if you opt for a larger mat for your dog, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. On the other hand, if the mat is too small, your dog may experience discomfort while lying down.

A dog mat should be of such size that it can lie freely on it, curling into a loose ball.

Where a dog travel mat works best

You already know how to choose the best travel mat for your four-legged friend. I would also like to tell you in more detail which places this bedding will work best for your dog.

In the park with the dog

Are you going on a picnic in the park with your dog? If so, the travel mat will be perfect in such circumstances. Your dog also deserves blissful relaxation in nature. After active play in the park, you will be happy to nap on his mat.

My doggy loves to spend his weekend afternoons in this way. We always start such an event by playing with his favourite bullet toy. When my pet is fed up with spending time actively, I put his mat next to my blanket and relax together in the fresh air.

The dog in the garden

Dogs sleep a lot of their day. If your dog has constant access to the garden, in addition to the time spent playing there, he will certainly also want to take a nap. A portable, fold-out mat for your dog is a good idea.

Thanks to this, your dog can enjoy sleeping outdoors, and you do not have to worry that he is uncomfortable lying directly on the grass.

Balcony with a dog

As soon as the days become warm and sunny, I like to spend time on my balcony. My little dog accompanies me very often. Because the balcony has no roof, I do not have permanent bedding for my dog.

That is why I spread out a travel mat for my pet to relax on the terrace. It works great in such a situation. My dog ​​can lie comfortably, and I don’t have to worry that his bedding will be destroyed by constantly being on the balcony.

A travel mat is a must-have for your dog’s layette

I cannot imagine my four-legged friend’s layette without his travel mat. Mainly because I often take my dog ​​to different places. Thanks to the easy-to-carry mat, I don’t have to worry about whether my dog will find a comfortable place to nap.
