Recommended by vets and animal behaviorists worldwide, the LickiMat products are designed to enrich your dog's environment as well as benefit his health. LickiMat products 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.
By spreading your dog's favorite soft treat over the surface of the LickiMat Buddy, you create a tasty, fun game as the dog seeks out every morsel with his tongue. Repetitive licking is soothing for your dog and releases calming endorphins into the body. Licking also enhances the sense of taste, allowing dogs to enjoy just a small amount of food over an extended period of time. In addition, licking stimulates saliva production which helps clean your dog's tongue, teeth, and gums.
The Lickimat Buddy, with its raised crosses design, is perfect for treats like soft yogurt or sticky peanut butter. The crosses are also good for trapping chunky treats like mushy meat or fish. Freeze treats in hot or humid temperatures to create refreshing, longer lasting entertainment.
Made from non-toxic food-grade TPR, the LickMat Buddy Medium is 8" x 8" and recommended for small and medium dogs. It's freezer and microwave safe. Hand wash the LickiMat in warm, soapy water after each use.
