Recycled Waterhog Dog Mat, Herringbone is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 128.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It doesn't get any better than this!! I have a huge St. Bernard and a Lab/Boxer. Between the two of them it's slob city. We have hardwood floors and every time they would drink, water would spill over the side of the bowl, and seep under the cheap mats we had picked up at the pet store. Water would remain standing on top of the mat too. It was a constant battle keeping the floor dry. Not anymore! These mats are AWESOME! These magic mats soak up every drop of water, and dry quickly. Slobber dries quickly and can be easily vacuumed or spot cleaned off. The only maintenance I do is vacuum them once per week. They look new almost a year after purchase. I highly recommend getting these mats for placement under their food and water bowls. I also purchased one for the door to the backyard. If the grass is wet, these mats pick up any water or light mud right from the dog's paws on their way in. These are worth every penny! Heavy duty, well made, and a must have for anyone with large dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great mat for my messy puppy! I previously used the smaller dog bowl mat with my old dog who was not much of a messy drinker. We got a puppy who has a beard and is a very sloppy drinker who strews water a few feet around his water bowl. This mat greatly helps decrease the mess and it's now no big deal if he steps in his water bowl and spills it all, because this mat has got my back! It absorbs water great, and washes with a hose off when needed. I got the light brown color, which blends nicely with my wood floors and doesn't stand out too much. Now I'm using the old smaller waterhog mat under my water dispenser. These are great mats!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very thin, not original waterhog quality Purchased two waterhog mats years ago for under pups’ water bowls and dack door entry. Many, many years later they’re still like new and performing well. Love how waterhog captures water. They also keep mud from shoes and paws on mat off carpet. Ordered two of these mats expecting the same quality and thickness. Needed a new size to fit new water bowls. The new mats have the Waterhog name, but not even close to the thickness of the originals. They may work for dainty drinkers, but not here. Our working dogs spill water and I now get to wipe it up. Very disappointed. Returning for refund.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to clean At first I loved this mat because it’s looks great and traps water from my messy American Bulldog. I even wrote a rave review about it. Now we’ve noticed that our dog has gotten even messier and food crumbs get on the mat causing mold to grow. Seriously every time I see it I get grossed out and immediately take it outside to scrub and sanitize it (hard to do in the winter). It doesn’t take long for the problem to reoccur. It’s a good mat if you don’t have a messy eater. Unfortunately for us we need something that is machine washable to help kill any bacteria. I did even try putting it in the washer despite advice against it (I’m getting rid of it so I don’t have much to lose) and my washer didn’t like it. It’s pretty stiff. The search continues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waterhog Pet Mat I know the review instructions say to be specific but this rug just works! I tried just a regular area rug and it always looked immediately filthy. It is very absorbent and remains presentable after having 3 sloppy dogs drinking over it for a week. Wise purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best product out there! We tried lots of mats for our dog before finding this one. We tried the rubber-looking ones from other retailers but water would just collect on the mat and get really gross. I came across this mat while looking for an alternative and it’s exactly what we needed. It looks really nice (I love the bones!). This mat keeps water off the kitchen floor and it’s very attractive. I haven’t tried cleaning it yet but I imagine it will be easy to hose off outside when it’s warm. I recommend these to everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product This is the second time I have bought a dog mat from LL Bean. This one is bigger and is exactly what I wanted. My dog is 14 years old and tends to be messy. With this mat nothing gets on the hardwood floor and it is not porous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great waterhog mat for pets Have bought numerous Waterhog mats over the years and have yet to throw a single one of them away. They are great for a number of things ranging from mats for pet food bowls to covering up patches in my carpeting that I really am in no financial position to replace. I ordered one in the gray color. It is a bit darker than I thought it would be but I'm keeping it anyway! Can't miss with the purchase of one of these Waterhog mats so buy one and you'll be satisfied!
