Essential piece of gear for my go everywhere pup

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I purchased the medium for my 40 lb service pup Duchess and love it! I was looking for something that I could easily take everywhere with us that would keep her from hot, cold, and/or dirty floors as well as protect her from getting wet when she laid down. This fit the bill! The Ruffwear Mt. Bachelor pad offers her a place to call her own. She no longer questions where she should be laying, nor do I have to worry about her being uncomfortable, cold, wet, or too hot while laying at my feet. This is an essential piece of gear to us and we use it everywhere. It's been on planes, in restaurants, camping, and around the house course! There are, however, a few minor things that could be improved upon. The medium seems huge and I could probably fit two of her on there. I do wish it came in a smaller size. The mat also seems to get dirty quickly between her drool and our frequent outings. I would be nice if it was easier to spot clean, as it a staple for us, but thankfully, it's machine washable. Waiting for it to drip dry is no fun though. I also wish it didn't take up so much space in her Haul Bag. While the roll is nice and convenient to hand carry, it seems awkward in the Ruffwear Haul Bag and takes up a massive amount of space. I was disappointed, as we typically use her haul bag as her go everywhere bag. Overall, great product and despite minor gripes (takes up a lot of space in the haul bag, smaller size not offered, hard to spot clean), I would definitely recommend it.

Love it!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I loved it, and Georgie loved it, so much that I bought a second one. Georgie is my service dog and I bought one of these for use in the office. She loves it. I love how portable it is and how easy to pack up. I throw it right in her Haul bag. I bought a second one to leave at the office, and keep one in her bag for on the go. Great bed!

Very nice

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

This bed is very helpful when it comes to having a place for my Service dog and Service dog in training to lay down on under the table I work at when I volunteer. It is also handy for when I take them camping with me as well. It doesn't slide out from under them as well and helps to prevent that from happening which is a lot better than a normal blanket. I highly recommend service dog handlers to get one.

This is wonderfully versatile dog bed. Now that the weather is rainy, I put it on the wet ground to keep my dog dryer and less muddy - she is a retriever and loves the rain. I do wish it came in other colors.

outstanding

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Our girl is 16 and not as active as she used to be. We purchased several "Bachelor Pads" so she has a comfy place no matter where she is in the house and she LOVES them. Not too hard, not too soft - just right for her old bones! Our goal is to keep her as comfortable as possible and these pads are a Godsend! Thank you.

My canine companion(s): Husky

Great

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I have a largish husky that prefers to sleep on thin/cold surfaces in the summer. This bed is great. Large enough for her to fit on, flat enough that she'll sleep on it. We travel a lot together, and it rolls up into a very packable bundle that is great to take with you (a little big for backpacking but great for car camping/trips). It also fits well into a wagon. The perfect bed for our lifestyle.

Nice Beds!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

This is a great bed for Search and Rescue Winter work. It insulates the dogs from the ground, the bottom is waterproof and it is apparently very comfortable. It dries quickly and fits in the car, in their crates and rolls up for storage. They like this bed so well we had to buy 2 more for traveling!

Fantastic bed!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I got this for our lab puppy who loves to chew on everything when he was 4 month old. This is the only bed that survived puppyhood without a mark! It's durable and he just loves it. It spends the week on my office floor so Thor can sleep next to me while I work, then I just roll it up in its convenient carry form for our weekend camping trips. The size (L) is perfect for a growing lab and gives him plenty of space to spread out his favorite toys and stay out of the dirt in our campsite.

Excellent

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

This is so well made: sturdy construction you can roll up, put down, move from place to place. It looks great on our engineered stone floors. I went with Blue because dogs see blue and yellow and into the violet range. Like the rubber backing, so it can go outside on a dewy deck. Great fabric - feels like suede.

Home away from home

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

She's habitual, but the Mt. Bachelor Pad makes her feel at home while we're traveling. We thought the large was a bit big for her at first, but it all depends on how your dog lays out. Nestler? Medium. Lays on its side? Large. Both? Go with the Large. It's nice and compact when rolled up and doesn't add too much weight either. We added her favorite fuzzy blanket and it rolled right into the pad with ease. GSD tested and approved!

Dog's Name: Seeley

Date of Review: 4/18/2014

We kick up our paws in: New Mexico

My canine companion(s): Bully-Breed Mix

Great for Traveling and Car Camping

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

The Mt. Bachelor Pad is a great bed for car camping and using around the house. I like that it can roll up into its own velcro straps and handle, which makes it easily transportable. The Medium Size is also big enough to fit me and my 50-pound dog on (if we cuddle). I'm sure smaller dog owners would like to see a smaller size though (Hint, hint). I've found two detractions to it: first, it would be great if the cover could come off for quick-washes (get the dirt & dog hair off). Second, it's not thick enough to protect a dog from really hard or rocky ground. That being said, my Seeley enjoyed sleeping it on our last camping excursion, and I enjoyed having her in a designated space, so I didn't have muddy paws all over the inside of my tent! Overall, though, it's a great portable dog bed.

I travel with my dogs quite a bit and I'm always looking for a durable, washable, packable bed to bring along. So far, the Mt Bachelor pad fits the bill. It's a nice amount of padding and washability and is holding up well in it's first month of use.

Almost perfect...

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I bought this mat as a camping bed for my 20-lb dog, who is inevitably exhausted after a day of hiking. For car camping, it would be fine, but even the medium is way too heavy and bulky for backpacking. Ruffwear, I would LOVE to see this product in a smaller size, with a cover I can take off and wash! That said, I think it is a functional, good quality product, and my dog seems to enjoy a bit of padding from the cold ground.

I had picked up this bed for my Australian Cattle Dog Gibson so I can have a portable mat for him to rest on when are on trips or just for the floor while he sits beside me at the computer. I really like how well this pad is put together and Gibson really seems to enjoy it as well. I almost wish I could order a human sized one as they would be perfect for inside a tent. The design, construction and ability to roll up makes this one awesome pad for your puppy.

My canine companion(s): Lab

Excellent

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I love it. I'm not sure I'll be able to use it as I planned but it is an excellent product. I had planned to use it as a pad for my service dog to carry daily and lay on when we stopped for longer period. We got the large and its too heavy to carry all the time. That's my fault for not investigating properly. That said... wow. The Bachelor is unexpectedly nice. The materials are very sturdy. Its well sewn. The large is a great size for my big lab -- is more than large enough. The bottom material is non-slip so it won't slip on carpet. The whole thing is just thick enough that it provides a nice cushion on cement but isn't that bulky or heavy (well, unless you'll ask your dog to carry it all day like I would). I like this so much I'm tempted to get the smaller one to see if it might be light enough for my service dog to carry daily.

Great Product

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Have had this bed for a couple of months now and has been so awesome for my puppy. It has been so easy to travel with and we take it with us to training classes. I would say go with the big bed just to be on the safe side. my dog likes to sprawl out and curl up in ball. Only issue is that it gets dirty super easy for some odd reason, but have been able to clean it. If i could change one thing is that it was a little thicker, but my dog knows its her bed and seems to like it.

I simply don't write reviews but: I purchased a Ruffwear Hover Craft (The predecessor To The Current version), on Dec 2007. My dog still has this toy, after playing tug of war with this product, with her friend, "C," an English Bulldog, for 5 years. It still has years left in the toy, even with frayed edges! This has to be one of the most durable, non plastic toys, she has ever had. We have added a new Red Hover Craft to the mix, but Bailey still gravitates to her oldest and favorite friend:)

Lots of potential

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I was excited to get a couple of these, especially after it was recently redesigned. The bottom material is quite durable and very tacky so it doesn't slip around. It goes from the ground to the back of our suv and everywhere in between. I do have a couple complaints that keep me from loving it. For one, it desperately needs a side zipper and the ability to take the cover off and wash it. I understand the entire thing can go into the washer, but the outside is the only thing that gets dirty. This would also give you the ability to beef up the foam inside because this pad is relatively thin as it is. Just a couple suggestions...thanks!

functional and attractive

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Our dogs know what "bed" means so it is great to have something portable. We can take this on road trips (hotel, friend's homes, camping) and the dogs still feel like they have their own place. I love how compact this bed becomes so it doesn't take much effort to pack or carry in the car. The large is also big enough that it covers the cargo space of my wagon and then some. This will also come in handy for taking to training and agility classes when it is cold (a warm place to lay on the floor for my pup). I've put this in my front loading washing machine a few times and have hung to dry with no problems- looks brand new!
