Pairs well with the Boredom Buster Indulge Lick Mat

Why we love it: Lick mats make great slow feeders to keep pets from eating too fast. Licking also releases endorphins to relieve stress in anxious pups, and the low profile prevents whisker fatigue in cats.

How do I clean my lick mat?
These lick mats are safe to wash in the top rack of your dishwasher. If using a stickier treat like peanut butter we recommend soaking prior to washing.

What makes lick mats good for dogs?
When animals lick repetitively, endorphins are released in their brains, promoting a feeling of calm. This makes them a soothing solution to anxiety and boredom by distracting them with a yummy treat. They’re also great for dogs who eat too quickly by slowing down mealtimes and can prevent overfeeding of treats since it takes so long to lick out every last bit. Lick mats can also support better digestion by stimulating saliva production and promote healthier teeth and gums.

How can I make a lick mat treat last longer?
The more complex the pattern, the longer it typically takes a dog to get a lick mat clean. Look for mats with lots of small nooks and crannies. You can also spread on a soft treat and then freeze the lick mat to help it last longer and to cool your dog down on hot days. Lastly, the stickier the treat the longer it tends to last! Try peanut butter over yogurt, for example.

Which kinds of food and treats can I put on a lick mat?
You can put just about anything on a lick mat! Peanut butter is a classic that lots of people use because it’s so accessible—just be sure to use a brand that does not contain xylitol as it’s toxic to dogs.

More ingredients to try:
Plain yogurt (without added sweeteners)
Mashed dog-safe fruit like apples, blueberries, bananas, or watermelon
Cooked and pureed vegetables like carrots, spinach, green beans, or peas
Honey in very small amounts
Ground meat and fish, cooked and unseasoned
Baby food (without xylitol or added sweeteners)
Wet dog food and dog treats

Are some lick mats more difficult than others?
The easier lick mats tend to be shallower and with wider patterns. This makes it easier for dogs to lick up even sticky treats. The deeper and more complex the pattern, the more difficult a lick mat will typically be and the longer it will take a dog to lick up their treat.

Can lick mats go in the microwave?
Absolutely, most lick mats are made from silicone which can withstand the high temperatures of a microwave. You can warm up food or even cook food in the microwave right on your lick mat.

Can cats use lick mats too?
Yes, many cats enjoy the challenge of a lick mat! It’s a great way to slow down speedy eaters too. Try it with wet cat food or cat-specific squeeze treats.

Our dog, Sam, enjoys this VERY much!!! It keeps him busy for a long time, depending on how much peanut butter we use. We like to give it to him when we leave the house because it takes his mind off of our leaving him behind. It's a GREAT help with his separation anxiety. It's also extremely easy to clean!!! Food does not stick to it. It's made of sturdy material which will last his lifetime

Licking is the best

Excellent. Licking has proven to be very soothing to my anxious dog. I try to leave a lickimat out when I leave the house. I use peanut butter, greek yogurt, wet food, cream cheese. This one can be cleaned fairly easily.

Need the right incentive to use

I need to find the right food to entice my two dogs with this. They pretty much ignored it with peanut butter.

Not really successful afraid to say. My dog licked his food for 30 seconds and then left it!
