£4.49 – £7.99
The Canine Thinking Team says...
Our Quick Guide:
Difficulty: Easy (but time consuming!)
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.
Lickimats also come in a version with squares (playdate) which is a little easier, bobbles (soother) which is more for liquids and deluxe varieties which are dishwasher safe and less easy to chew (which they are not designed for!)
The Manufacturer says...
LickiMats are vet designed and provide a perfect treat licking and feeding surface for dogs. LickiMats encourage licking action in dogs, whether for eating treats or food.
LickiMats allow you to spread out the dog food or treat on the mat surface or press the dog food or treat into the mat surface, encouraging your dog to lick and lick and lick to get the food or treat as a reward.
The rubber tips of LickiMat gently scrape and stimulate your dog's tongue whilst feeding or snacking. This increases saliva protection, improves oral hygiene, protects teeth and gums, and most importantly soothes your dog by releasing endorphins.
The pockets of the LickiMat challenge your dog to extract the raw, wet, dry or liquid food or treat as a reward, enriching their feeding experience.
Buddy™ has a more complex surface and still allows separation of foods and treats.
Non-toxic, Microwave proof, Freezer-friendly
