LickiMat® boredom busters products promote calm behavior while your dog is home alone, during situations he finds stressful (such as storms or a vet visit), while he's in a crate at a trial or training class, when he's recovering from an illness or injury, and any time you need to redirect excess energy.
LickiMat Slomo is one of the strongest LickiMats made. Over 1/2" of hard toxin-free tpr and food grade rubber on top where your dog licks. This Lickimat is like the Lickimat tuff versions in that it can hold up against chewers and tethers.
The LickMat® Slomo™ boredom busters are designed to be used with either soft or dry food. Put kibble or dry treats into the small square openings and/or put soft or mushy treats into the areas with the raised dots.
Made from non-toxic food-grade TPR or thermoplasticized rubber TPR is a great choice because it doesn’t require the use of BPA and is made without PVC (and thus phthalates) - In other words, your dog is safe to lick the slomo for hours and hours with no risk to harm
Recommended by vets and animal behaviorists worldwide, the LickiMat products are designed to reduce stress, anxiety, and especially boredom.
By spreading your dog's favorite soft treat over the surface of the LickiMat® Slomo™, you create a tasty, fun game as the dog seeks out every morsel with his tongue. Repetitive licking is soothing for your dog and releases calming endorphins into the body. Licking also enhances the sense of taste, allowing dogs to enjoy just a small amount of food over an extended period of time. In addition, licking stimulates saliva production which helps clean your dog's tongue, teeth, and gums.
By putting kibble in the small squares, you can slow down your dog's eating speed. The squares are 3/4" wide and 3/8" deep.
The LickMat® SloMo™ is 8" x 8". It's freezer and microwave safe. Hand wash the LickiMat in warm, soapy water after each use or in your dishwasher.
