The perfect dog blanket
Considering how important temperature regulation is for dogs' wellbeing and comfort, we were surprised how inadequate beds and blankets were.
So we set about creating a world's first...
A world's first
NASA Meets Dog Blanket
This is the world’s first temperature-regulating throw blanket for dogs created using patented Outlast® technology, developed with NASA.
Made-in-Germany advanced temperature regulation meets British design.
Proven in over 300 applications, including mattress technology for better sleep, medical-use cases, & advanced outdoor clothing, NASA technology has now been used to increase wellbeing for dogs.
How does it work?
"Not too hot, not too cold. Just right."
None of the downsides of a 'reflective blanket'. Thanks to the clever patented Outlast® Thermocules® - wax microcapsules in the filling material- the blanket is able to adjust to the dog's own microclimate. Simply put, if they're too warm, it absorbs heat like a sponge, and stores it. This is then passed on to the body and raises body temperature again if the temperature should drop.
" Seems that the NASA technology really works, we honestly thought it was a gimmick initially."
It's the same technology used in premium 'people bedding' which draws and releases body heat to reduce temperature fluctuations through the night.
This is streets ahead of 'reflective' blankets which merely reflect heat back. Instead, your Thermoluxe Blanket doesn't keep getting hotter and hotter, or cooler and cooler. It adjusts to create the perfect microclimate without any temperature spikes or shocks.
Why regulate heat?
A dog's microclimate is different to ours- they have a higher basal body temperature than humans do (about 102F/39C compared to 98.6F/37C for humans).
This is why in cold weather, your dog would probably prefer you turn the thermostat a bit higher 🌡️
You'll often see dogs trying to get close to heat sources- which can be dangerous in the case of open fires. Dogs try to maintain that higher temperature.
Obviously, falling asleep near a heat source can lead to heat-stroke- just like when a dog is left in a car.
In summer, the dog's internal temperature is already higher - so those extra degrees can quickly lead to discomfort.
Heatstroke is an extreme, but it's one of the most common illnesses in dogs, even in Winter.
Your Thermoluxe blanket can help - it compensates for the temperature difference between what we set and what our dog wants in winter.
This also means you can turn down the thermostat overnight.
And in the Summer, it avoids the need for extremes like wet towels.
There's no down🪶...but don't frown 🤨
Down feathers lose their insulating properties when they are exposed to moisture and tend to promote the development of fungi and bacteria.
Our advanced materials are an environmentally friendly alternative to down. Instead we use Outlast® technology to deliver superior heating/cooling performance.
The blanket delivers a more efficient weight to warmth ratio and is extremely compact when folded making it a breeze to travel with. Plus, it's easy to machine wash.
snuggle in winter. cool off in summer
"During testing, we found that he naturally went to the blanket after he'd experienced it for a short time.
There's plenty of advantages to this, including promoting a designated rest area, as well as it being obvious that he simply prefers snuggling down to rest on the Thermoluxe.
It was eye-opening to see that perhaps he hadn't been as comfortable before as we'd thought."
Blankets are often overlooked or skimped on, but they are a source of great comfort to dogs.
Dogs have a base instinct to nest, and blankets enable this.
So we wanted to create 'the perfect blanket'.
In all our test cases, we found that the blanket quickly became routine. This makes it easier for your dog to cope with temperature variations with changing seasons.
"How do I know if my dog is cold at night?" is a frequently asked question on Google. With Thermoluxe, you can have peace of mind that they are just right.
The blanket also provides arthritis benefits, especially in Winter, since Outlast® technology is used in medical applications to aid comfort and promote faster healing.
Better Sleep = Better Dog.
Great blanket = great sleep.
When it comes to sleep, the benefits to dogs are the same as our own. And temperature control is one of the most important factors in whether we sleep well or not.
"She woke up with a spring in her step."
Baker & Bray exists to promote better sleep in dogs. Lack of sleep creates 'low mood' in dogs, meaning less movement and possible weight-gain. Good sleep makes a dog more 'chirpy' and engaged, which is especially useful for behaviour and training.
Consistent good sleep also strengthens the immune system and lowers stress levels.
"Superb throw blanket. Wilson is using it constantly and is far more restful. Great for peace of mind." - Nick R
"After a night on this she work up with a spring in her step."
- Greg H
"Easily the best thing we've bought her this year. We just need another for upstairs now!" - Julia B
"We live in a cold home so always worry about whether Millie is comfortable. Now we feel confident that she is."

Notes from happy pet pawrents
"I was actually looking for a better cover for our new sofa and was recommended to look at this. Visually it looks great and the grey colour doesn't show up a lot of hair. But the best thing is my dog is so settled on it. Usually I'd find blankets and hair everywhere by the morning. This just stays on the sofa and so does the dog. During the day I move the blanket, and he moves with it!" - Jen H
"Bought for my 16 yr old arthritic cat. As soon as she figured out that it warmed up, she was hooked." -Maddie
"Going from the cat's point of view he seems to love this blanket and spends hours soundly asleep on it. He lies down and rubs his fur against it purring. A good sign! We're going to buy another for the bed!" -Kay
"I’m very happy with my purchase. It’s definitely way better than normal non-heating non-cooling blankets. And for my pups that still have accidents it's ideal being waterproof. And it comes out nice after washing." Thomas N
"I bought two of these in the end for a pair of pups who sleep a lot but are always curled up trying to preserve warmth. They adore it. They snuggle on the couch using the armrest as a bolster and sleep much more soundly." - Neil B
"Unlike cooling mats we've used in the past we had no trouble getting Toby the Collie to lie down on this. Within a couple of mins he was lying down on it and practically lived on it this past summer." - Richard F
"Ours is a 11 year old pit with arthritis. It's good to know that he gets the right amount of heat and is sleeping more comfortably than ever." - Helen P
"Our always-shedding Lab is rarely off his blanket whenever he wants to rest. It has had VERY heavy use since we got it about 2 weeks go, and it has just washed beautifully." - Nick R
