Soft, comfy top layer supported by thin, durable padding that works well when placed over thicker crate mat or on its own as a travel mat. Fits crate perfectly, too. Has held up well after multiple washings and daily "diggings." Charcoal gray looks as pictured. Not used for a nighttime bed, but when my dog wants his alone time in his room (crate), this mat is pure comfort.
These are my all time favorite crate cushions as they are perfectly sized for standard crate sizes, easy to wash in a standard sized washer and dryer, and do not slide around in the crate. The rounded border around the edge makes it so that the cushion does not fold up or get bunched up in the crate so the dog always has a comfortable surface to lie down on. If the dog has an accident in the crate or spills water it will go through the padding so the dog stays relatively dry. They can easily be bleached if you like and the material remains like new even after washing many times. I personally put a small fleece blanket in with my dog on top of the crate pad so that she has something she can mess up and make up the way she wants. These are well worth the money and will last forever.
I bought the jumbo size, and I think it's the right size for my Australian Labradoodles. But keep in mind that the part the dogs lay in is flat, no foam or stuffing. The only stuffing is in the bolster. I was looking for dog beds for the living room, a place for them to relax too. Was planning building a raised bed and putting these on top. Not so much, they look like they do belong in a crate.
I got 2 - one small and the other medium. These are nice!!! Nice memory foam of a good thickness to allow my kitties to be comfortable, but not so thick they don't get swallowed up! Nice plush covering on the top side, nice very slightly tannish gray color so it'll go with a lot of colors of carriers, love the rubbery spots on the black fabric bottom to keep it in place on the floor of the carrier crate, and the edges are nicely finished with what seems to be quality black cotton bias tape. The split corners are fantastic!!! They allow the pad to fit better and easier in the crate. The only downside is that the sizes seems to be a bit odd - a good bit longer than wider - or a bit off from the carrier crate sizes for sale. But, the long sides of each easily bent upward along the back walls - the small wasn't too much longer than the small crate I'd gotten (small carrier from *** - don't recall brand), and being for the (smaller) less active cat, it stayed in place both to and from the vet's office very well, and she'd moved around a lot for her! The medium was both longer & wider than the crate I'd gotten for the (larger) much more active cat (bought the Petmate Sky Kennel in medium), and didn't stay in place as well - but then he was scratching at the pad and moving around a LOT inside the crate, so his extreme activity could have been the key that moved the pad around...? Anyway, this pad is a very solid 4.5 to 4.75 - it has everything we needed: plush top, nice thickness and cushioniness (is that a word?) of the padding, stay-in-place bottom, well-finished edges, and split corners for a good fit - AND it's machine washable!!! (I washed them before first use, and let them air dry overnight) Well, the looking was over, literally, when I spotted these pads!!! Definitely highly recommend. Enjoy!
