Great mat!

I love the design of this mat with the raised lip to prevent spills from messy dogs like my Puggle. The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the fabric-feel finish is a little harder to keep clean; hair etc likes to stick to it. That said, water beads up on it at first, so you can blot it dry if you catch it right away. And if not, at least it’s not all over the wood floor like it was before! I like the pattern, which kind of looks like wood grain, as well as the color. The size is substantial-I’m not sure why others didn’t seem to think so. It easily fits 2 Ruffwear bowls with room to spare, & they hold A LOT of food & water! The black Ruffwear bowls look great on it!

Looks great, works great!

We were looking for a nice mat to protect our hardwood floors—this fits the definition exactly.

This mat keeps spilled water from getting on the floor and keeps the bowls from sliding around. Best purchase!!

Excellent - even for my big dogs

I have this and I am able to fit my big dog’s food bowl and a ruffwear weighted water bowl on the same mat. It does a great job protecting our hard wood floors. I’m ordering a second one for our other dogs!

Great mat!

Love this math. I use it for the water dish. Holds the spills great and cleans up nicely! Definitely, worth buying!
