Dogs like Munchkin & Bear Play Mats (and so do Chiropractors!)

Kind words from our customers always make our day!  But we know so many of you wonder if you can use a play mat if you have dogs in the house so when Zoe got in touch we asked if we could share her feedback with you all... 

"I discovered these mats when my daughter was small and I wanted something practical but that also didn't make my house look like a playroom. What I hadn't anticipated was that the dog and then later dogs would love them also.
They're luxuriously thick and shock absorbent as well as being wipeable and durable. Working as a chiropractor for both humans and animals these little mats quickly became and essential item. The longer I am in practice the more I notice my knees!

Dogs on play mats

For canine use at home and the clinic the mats provide a safe surface to examine and treat canines on. They're double sided so can be reversed when needed but have immense durability.
The only weakness may be pointy, strong chews. If your dog likes to hold something sharp between their front paws as they chew I can imagine that might dig in too much. However, our two love kongs, horns and antlers, none of which have caused an issue.
We now have a mat under the human chiropractic bench, between the leather sofas and in the canine treatment room! Alba, my daughter is now seven years old and although she still gets some use out of them it is probably her chiropractor parents and the border collies she lives with that use them most nowadays! They've been so useful in practice we recently discussed and recommended them at our conference!!"
