I have a dog who doesn't typically like to lay on dog beds. He prefers a cold floor or the couch. I bought one of the large mats that are fleece on one side and a cooler material on the other side. My dog absolutely loves it! He takes all his toys to his bed, eats his treats on it and curls up on it to sleep occasionally joined by the cat. In the summertime I flip it too the cooler side where he can go lay down without getting too warm. I also purchased a dog coat for the really cold days. A nice fleece tartan pattern looks great and keeps him warm enough to enjoy a good run!
