    This might be the best purchase I have made in years! My dog is 17. He’s blind and deaf and food is one of his true joys. I don’t want to overdo it with treats so the likimat is a wonderful solution! I have had it for 2 days and it has been a true gamechanger. It keeps him engaged and really does satisfy him better than just giving him a treat. He started a night time ritual of begging, getting a treat and repeating for 45 minutes. Of course, I am a pushover so I kept giving in. I’m looking forward to seeing if this helps in the car. He used to love rides but gets anxious now. We’re going on a 75 minute ride tomorrow and am hoping this quells his anxiety for at least some of the trip. I opted for the heavier mat as opposed to the suction cups, as I feel it fits our needs better. So far, I used vanilla yogurt and put it in the freezer and tonight discovered that braunswager (liverwurst) works great, as you can just cut the end of the tube and rub into the grooves. I didn’t freeze the mat for that, but I might tomorrow before our car ride just to make it last longer. Thanks likimat! This product is excellent! Also, after several dental cleanings over the years Jimmy is left with few teeth. I’ve read that this is soothing for their gums as well. I can’t tell if this is the case, but he certainly enjoys it. Very easy to clean, which is also a huge plus! I think it’s the silicone that makes it easier to wash out any remaining food particles. This product is wonderful!

    Look people. This isn’t a chew toy. It’s not DESIGNED to be one. It’s an interactive toy, which still means you have to pay attention to your dog and teach them how to use and enjoy it safely. If my 9 month old, 80+ lb male doberman puppy, can enjoy this safely & happily with my supervision, I’m sure yours can too! Licking stimulates the endorphin producing part of the brain. It can calm & entertain. I use hot water, soak kibble with coconut oil, almond butter, whatever else is around that doesn’t stain carpet. Puree it in my magic bullet & voila, treat paste for spreading and then freeze. Teach them to lick & NOT pick it up and chew & you’ve got a few minutes of treats and entertainment. When it’s empty, take it away. Easy as that. I was skeptical, but I ignored the negative reviews and tried. A week later same puppy mentioned above needed surgery and this has been a godsend. Try it. It’s worth it.Read more

    I was underwhelmed by the quality. I expected something more sturdy when I paid practically twice as much for the “tuff” version. I gave this to my dog who isn’t a huge chewer and he caused this much damage in just a couple minutes.Read more

    I brought this for my dog to curb is behavior of licking the floor. We initially got the green soother, which he broke off many of the nubs. I purchased this one thinking it would withstand his nibbling. While it took longer, he managed to damage it in the first sitting. Let me also add that he had most of his front teeth pulled and somehow managed to do this. Looks like I’ll be looking for a sturdier pad. If you have a dog who nibbles at all, I would consider buying a different design instead of the soother.Read more

    I loved this! But more importantly, my dog loved it! As soon as I got it in the mail, I cleaned it thoroughly, then smeared about 3 tablespoons of peanut butter in. It took her about 10-15 minutes to finish and she licked it clean! She’s napping now, so it’s worth it to me. I recommend using something similar to a vegetable brush if you want to hand clean it, as it might tear your sponge apart. It was nice because it didn’t move on the hardwood floor so she wasn’t pushing it all over the house, which is what I was most skeptical of. I look forward to buying another one to have a few on hand!Read more

    Bought two for my furbabies and could not be happier. After dinner and their “dessert”, (fruit I dry for them and a bit o’cheese), each night I spread something soft on there and give each of them a mat. It takes about 3 – 5 minutes for them to be done and I quickly take both up so there are no issues. They calm down right away and do NOT lick the carpet anymore!!! HIGHLY recommend.Read more

    I bought this as an enrichment device for our English Cocker Spaniel. He enjoys working on the things I spread on the mat such as peanut butter, cottage cheese, and yogurt. Freezing the mat with the spreads works well. It keeps our dog busy for probably 15-20 minutes. He likes to chew, so the mat must be removed after he finishes with the food. I was a little slow on this and he chewed up one corner of the hard plastic surrounding the mat. I certainly wouldn’t trust it with any dog that likes to chew. The mat seems pretty easy to clean. It did warp a bit in the dishwasher, and I would only consider it for the top rack away from the heating element. The mat we received doesn’t have suction cups, but it does have rubber pads on the four corners. That only helps to keep it from sliding a bit.Read more

    My dog licks her paw and I use this for a diversion to stop her from biting and licking. I had her to her vet and there was no reason for her to be licking her paw. The vet said probably due to boredom. I tried playing more with her but she didn’t seem interested. I saw the lick mat and decided to give it a try. Because she is on a prescription diet from her veterinarian I cannot feed her anything but her prescribed kibble. I mix her kibble with warm water let it get mushy and then spread it in the mat. It takes her about 10 minutes to completely lick it clean and it stops her from going to her paw. After she is through licking it she is relaxed and lays down to rest and does not pay any attention her paw.Read more

    When we first got this my dog absolutely loved it and we were really pleased with the purchase. The first couple of times he used it we had to guide him to just lick it rather than try to scrape it with his teeth and all was fine once he got the hang of it. He then became really subdued and his lip and gum swelled right up. We took him to the vet and a little nodule had got lodged in his gum causing him a lot of pain and a big vet bill.Read more

    I decided to try this one after my dog managed to lick his flexible LickiMat to death, but sadly it didn’t quite survive its first use. Definitely seems like a really sturdy mat, and looks nice too, but it seems to be little trickier for him to lick whatever’s on it off. Although it keeps him busy for longer, he only needed a minute while unsupervised to decide that the best way to get at the stuff on it was to eat the LickiMat too. I hadn’t intended to leave him for long periods with a it as I knew he’d definitely chew it, but I didn’t expect him to have a crack at it when I left him for a moment. I don’t really want to rate it any less than 5 stars though, as he loves the LickiMats, and was always excited whenever I got his previous one out. Definitely makes for great (supervised) entertainment for him. If you want a toy that you can leave with treats in for a dog who’s a chewer, I would highly recommend trying a Kong. It’s the only thing that’s endured my dog’s power-chewing, and it’s also the only toy I feel comfortable leaving him with when stuffed with treats.Read more

    The LICKIMAT Buddy Tuff is not as tough as they would like you to think. Like many, I have experienced an over zealous Springer tear the LICKIMAT Buddy Tuff apart and it didn’t take him long to do it either. In principle the design of the mat works, but if your pooch is like mine and has a ferocious lick, the small crosses that make up the grid are easily torn away from the main body of the mat. And it that were not bad enough, I inadvertently left said pooch alone with the mat once he had removed the dog friendly peanut butter and the good dog that he is, he decided to eat the mat, or at least one corner of it! So, buyer beware – if your dog is supervised and doesn’t posses a lick so powerful it literally removes rubber from plastic, the LICKIMAT Buddy Tuff will do just fine. If your pooch is anything like mine, don’t bother.Read more

    Please note: The item I was sent wasn’t the design as above (which I had been epecting). Most of the review applies to both designs though. I have had the design as per the picture before too. These mats are great to keep at keeping my dogs busy with a peanut butter snack after tea. I haven’t tried them with their usual food as they’re on raw which would be a bit odd! One of the advantages of these over say a Kong toy is the ease of cleaning as you can see exactly what’s left on the mat. Saying that, though, a Kong is virtually indestructible and these definitely are not. The advice suggests they are great for dogs who get bored when left but if I left either of mine with one of these for longer than it takes to lick it clean, the mat would be history and there would be strange coloured bits of plastic in their poo the following day. I have two large (25kg) dogs who love to chew so I pick the mats up when they are finished. There are chew marks around the edge of one after just a couple of weeks and my previous ones lasted a few months before being chewed to a very small piece!Read more

    I have two dogs, a labrador and a Jack Russell, both prone to destroying even indestructible toys so I was concerned trying these. First use they did both attempt to bite a corner but instead closely and told them off each time. Second use they didn’t even try. I’ve given them yoghurt and peanut butter on it so far, both times given a quick chill in the freezer. It’s a big hit! My JRT is prone to wolfing down her food and being sick after. She was visibly frustrated at first when using the mat but calmed down during the second use. Cleans easily, lasting really well and doesn’t slide around the floor.Read more
