Deluxe Lickimat Tuff – Playdate (squares)
The Canine Thinking Team says....
Our Quick Guide:
Difficulty: Easy (but long lasting!)
Interactivity: Can Do Alone
Lickimats promote calm behaviour through repetitive licking which has a soothing effect.
They can also help with dental hygiene through keeping the tongue clean and stimulating production of saliva.
They are brilliant for dogs who struggle with the harder wet food toys as the treat is highly accessible, but only a small amount is made available.
Rather than the rubber of the standard lickimats, these deluxe versions are more rigid in construction (and not as easy for certain dogs to lift up and chew - which is not what they are supposed to be doing!). They are available in the same varieties as the original lickimats and also a SloMo which has deeper troughs!
The Manufacturer says...
LickiMat Tuff mats are suitable for raw, wet, dry and liquid dog food, as well as any manner of dog treats and spreads.
If your dog is a naughty chewer, or a teething puppy, then you should definitely select from the LickiMat Tuff range or Slomo models. They are virtually indestructible. Please make sure you supervise your dog when first introducing them to LickiMat.
If you prefer using a dishwasher to hand-washing, you should also be looking at the LickiMat Tuff range.
All LickiMat Tuffs are dishwasher safe, so you can even wash them in the lower tray; they are microwave friendly, so you can cook meals in the microwave; they are freezer-friendly, so you can freeze treats on them; and they are easy to hand-wash in the sink. They are all made from human food-grade rubber (TPR) and recyclable polypropylene.
If you have a cat at home, you can use the Tuff LickiMat for cats too!
