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.
