PetSafe heated beds are designed to deliver continuous low levels of heat to supplement a pet’s body heat. These low levels of heat enable the pet to enjoy using the heater for several hours at a time. Do not expect these products to feel warm to the touch.
To test the unit:
The heat on our heated products does not circulate on a set interval. It is controlled insulated heat and gradually reaches a maximum temperature (internal heating element typically 82 – 85 F degrees without an object on the bed and internal heating element typically 105 – 108 degrees when a pet is on the bed). Heated products are designed to match a pet’s healthy core body temperature, typically 102F degrees. The surface temperature will not feel as warm as a human heating pad. This low level heat is designed to allow for longer periods of continuous use and varies in temperature depending on the ambient room temperature, other covers or materials between the heated product and the pet.Close
These beds are absolutely safe for cats and dogs to use. These beds and their power cords are low voltage (12 volts). There is no shock hazard and they are not harmful even if the cord or heating element is chewed. Be sure to follow these safety precautions:
The Stay! Mat works by detecting the pet’s weight on the mat. If the pet leaves the mat, it will send out a radio signal up to 6 feet and as little as 3 feet in all directions. The receiver will pick up this radio signal and produce a warning tone and a static correction, which will cease once the dog returns to the mat.
The Stay! Mat may not be effective for cats and lightweight dogs because it may not be able to detect their weight when they return to the mat.Close
