Choosing a LickiMat for your Dog

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 will step through all the choices below.  


LickiMat Classics 

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 stimulation.  


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.   


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 definetly select from the LickiMat Tuff range or SloMo models.   Please make sure you supervise your dog when first introducing them to LickiMat.  



LickiMat SloMo

LickiMat SloMo mats are designed to combine dry, wet, raw and especially soft or liquid dog foods and treats at the same time without creating a mess.  Like all other LickiMats, they can be used for treats or used as a complete and elegant feeder, especially for small dogs.  


LickiMat Wobble 

LickiMat Wobble is a unique bowl with the rubber dimples of the mat surface on the inside!  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.  


LickiMat Splash 

LickiMat Splash is an attachable LickiMat with a suction cup designed to attach to smooth wall surfaces and bath tubs.   Splash is designed for use with soft and spreadable dog treats.  

Splash is all about keeping your pet focused, relaxed and still when: 

  • Bathing
  • Grooming
  • Removing Burrs or 
  • When you or the vet is inspecting or tending to your pet
