Benefits of LickiMats

Recommended by vets and animal behaviorists worldwide, LickiMats are designed to enrich your dog's environment as well as benefit his health. LickiMats promote calm behavior while your dog is home alone, during situations he finds stressful (such as storms or a vet visit), while he's in a crate at a trial or training class, when he's recovering from an illness or injury, and any time you need to redirect excess energy, decrease anxiety, or distract your dog.

LickiMats allow you to spread out your dog's food or treats on the mat's surface, or press the food or treats into the mat's surface, encouraging your dog to lick and lick and lick to get the food or treat as a reward. The rubber tips of the LickiMat gently scrape and stimulate your dog's tongue, which increases saliva production. Increased saliva production improves oral hygiene by cleaning the tongue, teeth and gums, aids in digestion as it contains enzymes such as Amylase, and, most importantly, soothes your dog by releasing pleasurable and calming endorphins.

About the LickiMat Mini TUFF Buddy

The Lickimat Mini TUFF Buddy is 6" x 6", making it perfect for your training bag or for small to medium dogs. With its complex surface or raised crosses, maze-like design, it is perfect for thick, sticky treats like doggy peanut butter, cream cheese, canned dog food, cooked pumpkin, smashed banana, or raw meat. The crosses are also good for trapping chunky treats like mushy meat or fish so you can combine dry or wet treats with raw or wet dog food.

  • Made from non-toxic food-grade TPR
  • Freezer-friendly, so you can freeze treats on them
  • Microwave-friendly, so you can cook meals on them in the microwave
  • No BPA, No PVC, No Silicone, No Phthalates
  • Recyclable
  • Hand wash the LickiMat in warm, soapy water after each use.

Note: Please supervise your dog for the first few times you use the LickiMat until you are sure they will not chew the mat.

So many LickiMats, which one to choose?

All styles of LickiMats are microwave-friendly, so you can cook meals on them in the microwave, and they are freezer-friendly, so you can freeze treats on them. Therefore, selecting the right LickiMat for your dog comes down to:

  • what you feed your dog,
  • what treats your dog likes to eat,
  • whether your dog is a naughty chewer or not, and
  • whether or not you prefer to use the dishwasher to clean up.

The size of dog does not matter unless you want to use LickiMats as a bowl replacement to feed complete meals. We have happy Great Danes and Chihuahuas using LickiMats.

LickiMat Classics

LickiMat Classics come with three different surface patterns. All three are designed to work with raw, wet, dry, and liquid dog food, but the surface patterns differ a little to better suit different types of foods, treats, and liquids.  

  • Playdate has discrete pockets that will contain food. Liquids are easier to manage and keep separate from other food or treats.
  • Buddy has a more complex surface and still allows separation of foods and treats. It also comes in two sizes so it is a good choice if you want to use the LickiMat as a feeder for a large dog.
  • Soother is exactly what the name says. It allows soft and liquid foods to be licked out with extra tongue simulation.

LickMat Classics must be hand-washed.

LickiMat Tuff

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 the Slomo. They are virtually indestructible.

If you prefer using a dishwasher to hand-washing, you should also be looking at the LickiMat Tuff range or the Slomo.

LickiMat Slomo

LickiMat SloMo mats are designed to combine dry, wet, raw, and especially soft or liquid dog foods and treats on the same mat without creating a mess. Like all other LickiMats, they can be used for treats or used as a complete and elegant feeder, especially for small and medium dogs.

If your dog is a naughty chewer, or a teething puppy, then you should definitely select from the LickiMat Tuff range or the Slomo. They are virtually indestructible.

If you prefer using a dishwasher to hand-washing, you should also be looking at the LickiMat Tuff range or Slomo model.

LickiMat Wobble

LickiMat Wobble is a unique bowl with the rubber dimples of the mat surface on the inside!  Wobbles are designed to combine wet, raw, and especially soft or liquid dog foods and treats. Wobbles are extremely well-suited to freezing liquid treats and spreads—even freezing different liquids in layers, with or without solid treats added into the mix so that your dog can spend hours working through the treat and finding more surprises.

Wobbles are all about extra fun for your dog.  The wobbling action adds an extra dimension to the challenge of licking the treat from the rubber dimpled surface, greatly enriching and prolonging the pleasurable experience. 

The LickiMat Wobble is dishwasher-safe.

LickiMat Splash

LickiMat Splash has a suction cup designed to attach to smooth wall surfaces and bath tubs. Splash is designed for use with soft and spreadable dog treats. 

Splash is all about keeping your pet focused, relaxed and still when bathing, grooming, removing burrs, or when you or the vet is inspecting or tending to your dog. We've seen photos on Instagram of dogs using the Splash attached to sliding glass doors or even stuck on a tile floor.

The LickiMat Splash is dishwasher-safe.

LickiMat UFO

LickiMat Splash combines the best of the LickiMat Soother and the LickiMat Splash in a feeder that will stick to flat, vertical surfaces such as walls, bath tubs, car windows, and appliances as well as horizontal surfaces like your floor. The LickiMat UFO is travel-friendly and will keep your dog occupied in the car, at the vet or groomer, or anywhere you go. It's also perfect for hydrotherapy sessions.

The LickiMat UFO features raised walls to keep food and saliva inside the bowl for mess-free slow-feeding whether it's mounted vertically or horizontally. 

It's dishwasher safe.
