Worth it

Another great piece of kit from Ruffwear. Have taken various mats for the dog in past but for camping its all normally a faff. This is neat and light and works in many situations.


Happy Trails!

I use this for my service dog when we are in one place for a long time. It gives him a nice spot to lay down and is super light to carry in my backpack behind my wheelchair!

Amazingly portable, durable, and comfortable

I have a service dog, so it’s important for me to always have a mobile mat/bed for my dog. This bed is a great option for me because it’s very easy to clean and to travel with. My dog approves of it, too!

Purchased two highland beds and the two mats for backpacking and car camping. I love them, they make a significant difference in keeping my dogs warm on a cold night (mostly by providing good insulation from the cold ground). Really put them to the test on a recent backpacking trip where is snowed unexpectedly, I felt like it really helped them stay comfortable. Packs well into their packs so they can carry their own gear.

This is my completely-lost-without-it item!

TL;DR: LOVE THIS MAT. This is the best mat for service dog handlers! Lightweight, easy to clean, and big enough for my 40 and 50lb dogs! I am a student and this mat keeps my service dog comfortable through all of my classes! It is ideal for airplane travel and long road trips. This is the piece of gear I recommend most often when people ask me “what’s the number one accessory I need for my service dog?”
