What's the difference between the Original and Cooling Gel Dog Mat?

Our original Pawpedics was designed to cater to larger, heavier or post surgical patients who need the extra support. This means no expense was spared and we included natural latex and a more premium heavy duty memory foam base.

Our dog mat is still a premium product, but by removing the ultra plush latex and lowering the density of the memory foam by 10% we are able to cater to the needs and budgets of more dog and pet owners.

Our dog mat still includes premium perforated cooling gel memory foam and laser cut airflow channels throughout its design but is half the thickness overall. It's comparable to a camping mattress in a swag, if not about twice as comfy with all long lasting, machine washable components.

Is your bed chew proof and indestructible?

We have a rule of thumb that has not failed us for the last five years, this being:

  1. If your dog or pet chews your furniture or other household items (outside of their current bedding) - they will attempt to destroy a Pawpedics.
  2. If they only destroy their current bed, they will likely not destroy a Pawpedics. Why? A Pawpedics weighs a lot and we are convinced your pet will see it more as a piece of furntiture (like your own bed and lounge) as compared to a flimsy piece of fluffy fabric with some useless stuffing.

It takes a lot of work to move around or try to play with a Pawpedics like a toy. Not convinced? Check out our reviews by owners who have solved their bed destruction issues!

Returns & Exchanges

What is your returns policy?

Unopened and unused beds can be returned within seven days of delivery; however, opened beds (with a cut vacuum seal), cannot be exchanged or refunded due to compression restrictions and hygiene laws. It is recommended to open the package carefully and unroll the vacuum-sealed bed to verify the size prior to cutting open the seal. If you realise you have ordered the wrong size, roll it back up and return it within seven days to exchange sizes.

Do you have free returns?

No, the customer will pay for any returned items due to change of mind or incorrect size ordered.

If we have shipped the incorrect products, we will arrange and pay for the return and correct items to be shipped out as soon as possible.

Warranty & Care Guide

What does your 2 year warranty cover?

Our warranty covers all workmanship and quality of products used in the manufacturing process. This means if you have problems with anything outside of natural wear and tear with any components of your bed, we will replace it.

Are the covers washable and removable?

Yes, both our inner and outer covers are machine washable on a delicates or hand wash setting.

Pawpedics outer covers are non-slip, washable and water repellent. The fabric protects against the rapid absorption of liquids which will instead condense on the surface of the material.

  • Vacuum loose dirt and hair.
  • Wipe with damp cloth or pet friendly wipes.
  • Liquids condense on the surface of the material.
  • Use a soft cloth or paper towel to absorb liquid.
  • Gentle warm machine wash on 'hand wash' setting or hand wash only (in-side-out).
  • Air dry only (in-side-out) - do not tumble dry.
  • Steam to remove creases, do not iron.
  • Do not use softener or bleach.

The anti-microbial inner cover utilises patented technology to provide you with a completely waterproof material. This means you won’t ever have to worry about incontinence.

  • Wipe with damp cloth or pet friendly wipes.
  • Allow to air-dry. Do not tumble dry.
  • Gentle warm machine wash on 'hand wash' setting or hand wash only.
  • Do not use softener or bleach.
