Other Ideas

These “cool mats” are available commercially; some have a
laminated fabric covering closed with velcro. You might want to
experiment with sheeting or some other lighter-weight covering, as the
laminate may be too thick to really cool. Using thinner material does
allow the dog to get damp. Also, enclosing the mat in a second
pillowcase with a velcro close allows the outer to be washed, may
reduce the dampness, and does not interfere with the cooling effect.
