I have an obsessive border collie and try to always make him work for meals with Kong�s or slow feeders. This is a GREAT little treat for him that he gets very excited about! It holds just a couple spoonfuls and keeps him focused for about 20 minutes.
My dogs love these mats and so do I. They spend a lot of time licking them and seem to be more calm after eating from them. My puppy usually demolishes his food quite fast but with the licki mats he inly finishes slightly faster than my 14 year old dog. They are absurdly easily to clean. I was kind of shocked and I haven't noticed any tongue or bleeding issues. I also dont use them for every meal. I bought the cat xs small dog version and they are also easy to travel with. I love these and recommend them to everyone.
You can put all sorts of food in this - yogurt, peanut butter, mashed up fruit/veg, soft dog food, treats, you name it! You can even freeze it so it will last longer. It is super easy to clean, and great for a rainy/snowy/busy day to keep their minds busy!
My dog HATES baths. Gets bored and wants to try and jump out the whole time. This lick mat was magical! Just slab on some peanut butter then wet the back a little and slap on the edge of the tub! It worked like a charm. I even walked away from the tub to take a photo and he was still licking the mat! Usually, he would jump out and immediately try to escape the room. I even let him lick it outside the tub to keep him busy while I dry him off or brush him. I would highly recommend giving this a try.
These are just great! Keeps my hyper terriers busy for about 30 min! Usually when people enter my house they bark and go nuts. I have the lickimats ready in the fridge and they know this treat will happen when people come and they are quiet! And then they are tired out and calm! I rub a tiny bit of soft, cooked chicken with broth on them and keep them in the freezer for special times!
