Positives and Negatives ....
on January 1, 2012
Actually, we love this mat on the whole. We have a larger medium sized dog and 3 little dogs (all under 10 lbs) .. and were going nuts when it started raining and having the wet and/or muddy feet coming in from outdoors when they went outside as we have three little ones living in our home. We live with our daughter and son-in-law and 3 grandchildren in their home and they have white (of all things) floor in the laundry room, eating area, kitchen and hall ... not by choice it came with the house and the carpeting is a light beige. Normally, this is not an issue ... but during the wetter weather in this Pacific NW it had become a real issue as we could see all these paw prints and one of us had to go behind and wipe up each time we let one of the dogs indoors ... THAT WAS NOT CONVENINENT.
I bought this mat, not realizing how small it was (yes, it said the size but I was thinking of the convenience not the size when I purchased it). Now, we have had it a few months and the good news is that it DOES WORK .. the bad news is it is MUCH TOO SMALL. However, there was a Mail-in Offer for both larger rugs and a runner (which is what interested us as we let them out through the garage so there is a perfect little run for them to run through on the way to the laundry room back into the house) ... all very, very reasonably price. I was just so disappointed that I could not purchase any of these on Amazon.com ... but I AM going to place my order for one immediately.
Oh yes, they wash up great and easily... but YOU MUST FOLLOW the directions ... we just keep the directions in a ziploc bag under the mat .. for easy reference so we don't get confused when we need to wash it.
So, yes, I would recommend this great product I would just recommend a larger version of it, unless this particular size works for you ... as the product is great .... if it works for all FOUR of our dogs ... that must be a TRUE TEST! LOL!
