How Do I Stop My Dog Feeling Bored Pt 2.

This is so much more than a boredom buster! If you don’t already have a Licki Mat go grab one. You can find them in pet shops but there may be more variety on line. They are a silicone Mat with grooves in which you can squish your dog’s meal or a treat. They have so many uses:

  • Crate training
  • Enjoying time alone
  • Relaxing
  • Relieving stress
  • Distraction from scary noises like fireworks
  • Making meals last longer
  • Keeping your dog busy while you work
  • Stick it on the side of the bath to help while you wash your dog

There are so many things you can put in a Licki Mat too.

  • Mashed banana
  • Pate
  • Natural yoghurt
  • Your dogs food
  • Left over veggies from dinner (carrots/ squash/peas/ broccoli)
  • Peanut butter

These are just a few ideas. Anything that is safe for your dog can be squished into a Licki Mat. To make it last even longer or for a cooling treat on a hot day put the filled mat in the freezer.

There is also a curved version to make your dog work that bit harder. It will give them a mental work out at the same time! What’s not to love! what does your dog like in their Licki Mat?
