Easy to Clean
Reduces Anxiety, Boredom & Destructive Behaviour - Helps calm and soothe your pet, as they enjoy their favourite treat, which releases endorphins with the licking action. Reduces pet stress when you leave home, vet visits, bath time, nail clipping, injury recovery and during thunderstorms or fireworks.
Promotes Oral Health – Helps protect your pet’s teeth and gums, and can aid digestion. The natural rubber surface also scrapes food particles and odour causing bacteria off your pet’s tongue, promoting fresher breath.
Slow Feeder – Can be used to promote slower eating, which in turn reduces bloating and improves digestion. It slows the process dramatically and prolongs their enjoyment. Less calories, healthier treats and longer duration, making it a great alternative to slow feed bowls.
Improves Diet with Healthy Treats– the LickiMat allows you to serve a wide variety of treats like yogurt, peanut butter, purees, spreads and all manner of organic wet, dry, raw and healthy pet approved treats. You can even freeze food and treats on the mat for slower and more enjoyable feeding. LickiMats are also perfect for adding supplements and medications to treats.
Training Aid - LickiMat is increasingly being used by pet trainers and animal behaviourists in their training efforts, especially useful in reducing crate training time.

How to Use
Care & Cleaning
You should wash your LickiMat after every use, especially if there is any peanut butter left over.
The soft LickiMat Classics can be bent under the sink to make washing easier.
Preferably wash by hand with warm soapy water and a (silicone or nylon bristle) brush if required and avoid cleaning the Classic in the dishwasher!
Not suitable for a teething puppy or a heavy chewer, that will chew anything, please order a Lickimat tuff™. It is virtually indestructible and also dishwasher safe.
It works great at first but the dogs become frustrated and just want to eat the mat when they can't get the treat-spread out. Requires constant supervision if I don't want them to destroy the mats
