Cushion Sport Dog Training Floor Mats
Dog agility mats provide superior traction and comfort for dogs and trainers alike. Dog owners and dog agility floor users will enjoy maximum comfort for many years with our durable EVA foam agility mats. They are double-sided and in-line reversible, allowing for use of both sides of the mats, increasing the value these mats offer.
We've collected the top eight features for our dog agility mats to help you understand the benefits you'll receive from our dog agility interlocking tiles.
1. Maximum Comfort
Our durable agility mats provide comfort for trainers and dogs that's unmatched by other products on the market. The foam tiles are densely constructed to ensure durability, yet they remain lightweight and provide cushioning.
These mats are especially good for puppies, as these young dogs' joints are still developing, and for older dogs, who may be starting to experience some joint pain. Versus a hard flooring option, our EVA foam tiles provide a great comfort level for dogs who are undergoing agility training. Our tiles also work well as dog play mat options, providing a comfortable place for dogs to play.
And trainers are on their feet and moving almost as much as the dogs during the agility sessions, so the comfort of the foam tiles is just as important for the humans as for their dogs.
The foam used in these tiles provides more comfort and anti-fatigue benefits in a flooring material than hard rubber style tiles. The rubber tiles don't have much cushioning or give.
2. Floor Cushioning
The dense foam mats are lightweight, portable and feature a durable grip surface texture that provides exceptional traction for dogs' paws while providing enhanced support and cushion for trainers and dogs alike.
This flooring system will endure the daily punishment of agility training. You can train your dogs in comfort with our durable foam interlocking agility mats.
Each tile measures 3/4 of an inch in thickness, which yields a nice level of cushioning for dogs. Customers have reported that their dogs are able to train and jump for longer periods of time, thanks to the cushioning on the floor.
The cushioning of the floor protects your dogs' foot pads versus a rough or extremely hard flooring. Some types of hard flooring can catch a dog's nail during agility training, as it attempts to gain traction on the hard floor. Occasionally, the dog could lose a nail when this occurs, causing a painful injury that will reduce the amount of time the dog can spend in training and playing. A cushioned floor with a bit of give will keep the dog's nails safer.
3. Non-Slip Grip
Our agility mats feature a durable surface texture that provides exceptional grip and traction for dogs' paws, while providing enhanced support for trainers too.
Because of the no-slip surface texture of our dog agility flooring, you can expect to see some toenail scuffing, puncturing, indentations or other markings in the surface of the dog agility mats. This does concern some customers aesthetically when it initially occurs. However, these surface markings and indentions will not affect the performance of the agility mats or change the dog agility mat's ability to provide maximum anti-fatigue cushion and traction.
The dog will be able to use its foot pads to gain a bit of traction on the non-slip surface of our foam tiles, meaning the dog will have better success during agility training versus trying to train on a hard floor surface that's a little slippery.
Feel free to use our dog agility flooring under any type of dog agility training equipment. The non-slip grip allows the equipment to stay securely in place, even when dogs and trainers jump and step on the equipment. With a smooth type of flooring, the equipment could slide around, causing a potential danger for the animals.
However, you may notice some dents in the foam flooring from heavy equipment or equipment that the animals and trainers step on repeatedly. Again, these dents don't affect the quality and performance of the flooring. If you are concerned with the way these types of punctures and dents look, though, consider one of our rubber tile mat options, which resist punctures and dents.
Any time you have a lot of dogs in a room, there are going to be accidents. It's inevitable, especially if puppies are involved. Fortunately, our dog agility flooring tiles are resistant to all types of liquids, giving you time to clean up any messes.
Foam dog agility mats are available in blue, green and black tiles. However, it's important to understand that color and shade may vary somewhat from tile to tile within the same order. This is common with this type of EVA foam material.
Because of the waterproof capabilities of these tiles, you can clean them with a walk behind commercial floor cleaner that uses soft brushes. When spot cleaning the tiles, a damp mop with hot water and basic household soap works well. You simply can vacuum the tiles regularly to clean up dry debris. Additionally, you may use diluted bleach on the tiles to disinfect them.
However, it's recommended that you test any cleaning solution or scrub brushes in an out-of-the-way and unnoticeable area to ensure you won't damage or discolor the foam mats.
5. No Adhesive Required
Our agility mats are easy to install on any hard, flat surface with no glue or tape required. Each mat measures 3.3 by 3.3 feet, providing 10.8 square feet of coverage per tile.
If you want to install the tiles in a room with existing carpeting, it's recommended that you remove the carpet first. Tiles installed over carpeting could slip in an island installation, which is one where the set of tiles consists of a square in the room and doesn't extend to the room's walls. If you're installing the tiles wall to wall, the chances of slipping on the carpeting is eliminated, meaning you can install the tiles directly over low pile carpeting. You may want to use double-sided tape for an island installation.
Four border strips come with each dog agility flooring tile, allowing you to create a flat edge on any individual tile. If you need to cut a tile to allow it to fit flush against a wall, you can easily score and cut the individual tiles using a sharp utility knife or a box cutter, along with a sturdy straight edge.
6. Light and Portable
Each tile weighs 6 pounds, meaning the tiles are easy to maneuver for installation. Additionally, if you're going to move the tiles from room to room or if you need to disconnect and pick up the tiles regularly because the room has multiple purposes, having lightweight tiles is a significant advantage to this type of flooring.
Because our EVA foam tiles weigh far less than rubber rolled flooring or rubber interlocking mats, they're easier to move around. They also cost far less to ship than rubber mats.
Even though our dog agility training flooring tiles are portable, they're designed for indoor use. These types of EVA foam tiles will expand or potentially deform when exposed to areas of high humidity, high heat, or direct sunlight, meaning they're not recommended for outdoor use.
However, some users have reported success with using the tiles outdoors for short periods of time, as long as the tiles are stored indoors and only are used outdoors occasionally.
7. Double-Sided and Reversible
The dog agility flooring mats are double-sided for twice the use and life span, which is a tremendous feature that provides value to the product. Should a single tile become soiled or damaged significantly, you can simply flip that tile over and reattach it to the grid, maintaining the solid construction of the overall floor.
Or if you have noticed that the agility flooring as a whole is just starting to look warn, you can reverse all of the tiles and end up with a floor that looks completely new. Because you don't have to use any adhesive in the installation of the floor, it's relatively easy to flip all of the tiles over and reconnect them.
8. Lead and Latex Free
These dog training floor mats are lead and latex free, will not absorb water, and come with a 1-year limited warranty. By avoiding dangerous chemicals in the construction of our dog agility flooring, we've ensured the tiles will remain safe for dogs and humans alike. Some customers have even reported using our foam tiles as a cushioned floor in a play room for toddlers learning to walk, showcasing the importance of using safe materials when making the tiles.
Enjoy maximum comfort for many years with these durable ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) and polyethylene (PE) foam dog agility mats!

Are your mats closed cell
What is the best way to clean this flooring?
Can you use bleach water for disinfecting? We disinfect every day to try and mitigate kennel cough. We rotate Bleach water solution with Odoban.
Hi, Does this flooring work for outdoors? We are hoping to be able to work with our dog outdoors on a concrete area but want to make sure that it will still be a good flooring for her joints and also if it would stand the outdoor elements. Please advise. Thanks, Beatriz
im looking to convert a room in my house to a play/training room for my dogs. Would I need to remove the carpet from the room before laying down the mats or would I be able to lay the mats down on top of the carpet?
Following up on the outdoor question asked by someone else - if it is laid down just for working the dog and then moved indoors for storage, will that be ok? I understand life of product may not be as long as if it was installed indoors. My primary use will be for jump grids and small sequences and I too have a concrete area that has the optimum space for that work. Thanks.
Is it recommended to use an adhesive when installing the tiles to a concrete floor?
If it were used in a garage, would parking cars on it ruin it for agilitytraining?
How much do the mats expand over time with both use and heat?
Do the mats have to be near a wall or will they work in a centered portion of space on top of pergola flooring?
do these mats have a transition bevel for areas that are not against a wall? I don't want a tripping hazard.
Dogs may accidentally urinate on the seams of these mats. What method do you recommend for clean up so these affected areas do not encourage others, and also, how to maintain a clean and healthy floor in our facility?
Would these be ok for a dog daycare or more for just a training area?
It saved us money on set, and it was much safer. We can use them for future conferences. The trainers felt much more confident with dogs using tunnels and jumps and weave poles. It gave us a much more professional appearance. It was a nice kind of natural border, and it stood out better on site. It opens up a lot of doors (and tunnels and weave poles) for us now.
I installed the Dog Agility Mats in my unfinished basement, and turned it into a fantastic training / workout / play space! The black mat looks more charcoal gray to my eyes, and I love it! I put my room's odd floor plan into the Pro Floor Designer tool, and it accurately computed the number of tiles I needed, leaving a handful of full tiles unused in case I ever need to replace any pieces. Pam at Great Mats was super helpful for confirming the number of tiles I'd need, arranging a sample, and confirming that my address could accommodate a shipping truck. Installation was SO much easier than I expected. I cut pieces to fit around pipes & furnace easily with a utility knife (plus a straight edge and a compass tool). The pieces fit together very smooth and tight, and grip each other securely; the result feels much more like a solid one-piece floor than a patchwork of individual pieces. After I'd connected about 6-8 pieces, the floor was too heavy for me to drag, and it definitely doesn't shift from footfalls. So far, the floor is responding very well to use, including zoomies from my Sheltie pack, and a few vacuuming events. Yes, there are paw and nail marks where the dogs dig in for tight turns, but the floor itself is undamaged. After table leg impressions took 4-5 days to rise, I'm now careful to use super-sliders or scrap pieces of mat underneath anything that might leave a print (ladders, teeter, etc). The floor has a nice ''give'' without feeling squishy soft, and I can't tell it's laid over concrete. It feels great underfoot whether I've got shoes on or not. An elderly friend with knee problems visited, and immediately took a jogging lap around the floor - could not believe my eyes - and she had no adverse issues afterwards. LOVE my Mats and highly recommend!!
There is nothing I don't like about them.
The GreatMats were the most affordable and safe mats for our very large space.

Just to have that comfort level as you're walking around and you're demonstrating or working with the dogs or whatever, it's much easier on the legs and the hips. We're enjoying that aspect of it.
In obedience you have to throw dumbbells. You have to relearn for the bounce factor. But the comfort level is a big key. It's a pleasure to walk on.
Initially, the dogs had to relearn how to stop on a floor like this that is grippy. They don't slide.
We're really happy with it. It's what we needed, especially for our agility dogs.
The dogs could grip the floor to minimize slipping. The foam mats had a nice cushion for the dog and human joints. We have a full slate of classes 5 days a week with seminars and agility competitions on the weekends. Every person that walks into our facility immediately remarks on how wonderful the flooring is.
Super easy and fun installation - similar to putting together a giant jigsaw puzzle.
We laid the tiles in our basement in a day (took longer to clean out the basement than to install the tiles) and we are both over 70! Best of all our dogs seem to approve of the results!

After almost three years, we are still loving our floor, although it's pretty roughed up in some areas :) They do scratch and puncture. But from "far away" the still look beautiful and it really doesn't compromise the function. This is after 3 years of use - every day! We love Greatmats.
Easy install, good service, look nice!

These mats were the solution that I need to cover my concrete back porch and turn it into useful training space.
All of our customers are loving them! My knees and feet are not sore after training for hours!
I do not like how easy it is to puncture but other than that they are AWESOME!
Finished laying out the matts- the dogs and handlers really seem to like them! Installation was super easy, and the commercial floor cleaning system did its job without harming the matts.
Here is hoping they hold up well over time :D
Have only had the floor down for a couple weeks but it looks great.
Grove City, OH
We purchased the Dog Agility Mats to create a fitness area in our basement for humans and dogs to use the treadmill, work out and winter agility training with my dogs. We outfitted just a portion of the basement with mats. Eventually we may do the entire basement but for now this works! My dog friends are so envious! The matting does a great job of adding insulation to the basement too.r
The home we purchased had an RV garage that we converted to an Agility Room. The tiles were easy to install, cut to fit, and give the dogs great traction. We're very pleased with our purchase.
Everything looks good, thanks for your help.

Very happy with our bright new floors. They are heavily padded to keep our canine friends safe. We were very happy with the service that we received. We were also happy to receive a slight discount since this was our fourth order.
