|We do a lot of traveling on public transportation and it just gets gross. My dog's rarely get cold but they do bake in hot temperatures. Petsmart every now and again has a big sale on their top paw beds for like 15-20 dollars (way cheaper than ruffwear stuff and a bit more durable than blankets without slipping problems).
My dogs don't like beds at home (I found out after buying beds of course) so I took off the cover (they're washable) and am using it as a mat. Its bottom is anti-skid and it rolls up and folds up very compactly, especially if your dog doesn't need the top layer with the soft, kind of warming material. I just cut the top off and now take the anti-skid side with me. Its sole purpose is to keep grime of my dog.
I have largeish dogs and blankets can get kind of bulky; I like to travel as light as possible.
We will continue using this until I find another cheapish option that doesn't slide around and over heat my pups.
I know I'm resurrecting the dead but should someone, like me, be looking for mat ideas I figured I'd post mine.
