Picking the right lickimat

All dogs are unique and different in their own way – just like humans. 

LickiMats are vet designed and provide a perfect treat licking and feeding surface for dogs.  LickiMats encourage licking action in dogs, whether for eating treats or food.

LickiMats allow you to spread out the dog food or treat on the mat surface or press the dog food or treat into the mat surface, encouraging your dog to lick and lick and lick to get the food or treat as a reward. 

The rubber tips of LickiMat gently scrape and stimulate your dog's tongue whilst feeding or snacking.  This increases saliva protection, improves oral hygiene, protects teeth and gums, and most importantly soothes your dog by releasing endorphins.

The pockets of the LickiMat challenge your dog to extract the raw, wet, dry or liquid food or treat as a reward, enriching their feeding experience.

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.

So many LickiMats, which one to choose?

 

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 really matter unless you want to use LickiMats as a bowl replacement.  We have happy Great Danes and Chihuahuas using LickiMats.  

LickiMat® Classic

 

LickiMat Classics come in three surfaces: Buddy, Playdate and Soother.  

 

  • 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.

  • Soother™ is exactly what the name says.  It allows soft and liquid foods to be licked out with extra tongue simulation.

The surface patterns of the three models differ a little to better suit different types of foods, treats and liquids.  All three surfaces are suitable for raw, wet, dry and liquid dog food, as well as any manner of treat. 

The Soother is the most challenging of the three surfaces, and is best suited for soft, runny and liquid foods and treats.  It is preferred for liquids such as the juice from BBQ chicken or roasts as it gives the tongue an exquisite workout.

All LickiMats Classics are:

  • Microwave friendly, so you can cook meals on them in the microwave

  • Freezer-friendly, so you can freeze treats on them

  • Easy to hand-wash in the sink. 

  • Made from human food-grade rubber (TPR).

If you have a cat at home, you can use the Classic LickiMat for cat too!

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 Slomo models.  They are virtually indestructible.  Please make sure you supervise your dog when first introducing them to LickiMat.

The Tuff currently comes in two surfaces: Buddy and Playdate .

All LickiMat Tuffs are:

  • Dishwasher safe, so you can even wash them in the lower tray

  • Microwave friendly, so you can cook meals in the microwave

  • Freezer-friendly, so you can freeze treats on them.

  • They are all made from human food-grade rubber (TPR) and recyclable polypropylene.

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.
