Dogs love licking mats, and there are so many reasons why that's good! Firstly, licking mats are a fun alternative to a regular dog bowl, and they are a great way to avoid overfeeding.
As your pet eats his dinner, all that licking helps to keep his breath fresh and his teeth and gums healthy. Licking up his food is also good for your dog's digestive health, as the licking action stimulates saliva. The best benefit, however, in our opinion, is the way the licking mat will soothe your dog as he licks. If you're looking for an easy way to calm an anxious dog, then a licking mat is definitely worth a try.
When it comes to choosing what kinds of food and treats you should use with licking mats, SodaPup suggests dog-friendly peanut butter, canned dog food, cream cheese, plain yogurt, or any treat that you are able to break up and moisten with water.
For small breed dogs, why not try SodaPup's Flower Power Emat Enrichment Licking Mat for Dogs, which comes in small and large versions.
