I LOVE this rug. My 5 dogs love this rug. I live on a small ranch, but I have a great pyres/Anatolian, Berners and a wee Corgi. This rug attracts ALL the sand, dirt, water. I wish I could get more, but they are out of the Mud color. So I will just keep waiting. I have 9 Labernese puppies coming any hour now, so I am tempted to just get the sand colored ones. When I take the rug out to shake it, I can not believe what this rug holds in place so well. It really cuts down my sweeping 5 times a day. My dogs know to one by one sit on this rug until they are all cleaned off. They love to snooze on it. So my Fur babies and I give this rug a 5+ rating.
