We got this mat when our Dog trainer suggested it and it's been so good to feed our pup using this. It ensures he doesn't gulp his food down and absolutely loves it as continues licking it after finishing his meal. It's super easy to clean too!
I am so glad I found these! I purchased for my now 16 week old labrador pup; need I say anymore about a lab but this pup loves his food. I already had two longs for him, which he does like, but I find before he’s got to the end he’s lost interest which I why I thought the lickimat would work better. Well yay- I was right! I feel like because he can see and smell the food on the mat, he doesn’t give up until he’s had every last drop! Depending on what it is, it can keep him entertained for at least 20 minutes. Also seems very durable: he surprisingly hasn’t tried to chew it yet but even so, I think it seems sturdy enough to put up with some light chewing. I use peanut butter, banana, fruit/veg smoothies, wet food for mine; I also freeze them as then they’re ready for whenever I need them and last a lot longer. I actually bought one of the ‘original’ tough lickimat first and because I liked that one so much, I bought this. I especially like is as using the larger pockets I can put harder food in and water around it to freeze e.g. pieces of fruit or kibble.
Really good for our lab as both a mental challenge and aid to slowing down speed of food consumption. Would not leave along for long periods though as I have noticed my boy starts to chew it after a while and it is starting to show damage. Im worried that if unsupervised it may snap. Excellent if supervised.
I find this very useful with my greedy golden. Not for her main meal of dried food which tended to spill over the edge, but for any kind of snack food, especially the treat tube of paste which you don’t want to give in quantity. With this feeder a tiny amount can give her ages of lickie enjoyment!
My dog has always been a fussy eater & for some reason he’s always had an aversion to using dog bowls. Prior to getting this item I would put his food on the floor in his Matt but as he is on a wet food diet this wasn’t ideal cleaning wise. He now eats his tea off this Matt happily & seamed to be very entertained licking the food from the holes. With this item it can easily be cleaned by putting it in the dishwasher.
Bought this mat for my cat who eats way too fast and then is sometimes sick. Also he gobbles his food then tries to eat the food of my other cat. This mat worked a treat. It takes him longer to eat which gives the other cat time to eat hers and it stops him being sick so it is 100% effective. In fact I think its genius. Great product and great value. I highly recommend it.
