If you feel guilty about leaving your dog alone at home, why not treat them to a fabulous boredom buster? The impressive Lickimat collection features a variety of patented mats and accessories which transform treats into fun games. Dogs seek out their snacks with their tongues, passing the time and ensuring that food tastes even better than usual. Also amazing slow feeders for cats, Lickimats offer a raft of benefits.
What are the benefits of Lickimats?
Lickimats for dogs prevent overfeeding as they ensure that treats last for longer. The distraction and the taste of their favourite treats calms pets in times of stress. Repetitive licking releases calming hormones into dogs’ bodies. A dog’s sense of taste is enhanced by licking, maximising their enjoyment of the food you provide. Fresh breath is promoted as bacteria is scraped off dogs’ tongues and the licking will stimulate saliva production which will help to keep teeth and gums healthy.
Which Lickimat should you choose?
Square Lickimats are available in three different styles and two sizes to suit your pet. The Lickimat Buddy features a cross-maze design which will trap mushy meat and fish. With is raised bumps, the Lickimat Soother is ideal for runny treats including yoghurt and gravy while the Lickimat Playdate incorporates square pockets for trapping chunkier morsels. The collection also includes the Lickimat Slomo for cats and dogs which slows down feeding and the Lickimat Splash to entertain dogs in the bath.
