So great for Baxter! new puppy that needed distracted and calm times. It works! :)
I saw a review of this mat on Instagram and decided to look it up. We have tried other things that have promised to help with the separation anxiety our Westie, Sophie, often has when we first leave; but, none of them have ever delivered on that promise. This product, however, is amazing. We spread a little peanut butter on the mat (no need to cover the entire mat) and she will work on it until it is spotless. If it is only partially covered, it will take at least 30 minutes. If more of the mat is covered then she will still be working on it an hour later. It was great, too, when we had company over for a BBQ. She was oblivious to the fact that we were eating. I was so impressed with this product that I told her doggie daycare/boarding facility about it. I also plan to order several more.
A perfect alternative to bones/chews for a dog with a sensitive stomach. Keeps mine busy for at least 20 mins at a time and she really loves it! Pretty easy to clean as well.
My year-old pomeranian has severe separation anxiety, and this licking mat is one of several tools I'll be using to help correct that. She gets totally engrossed with the mat, and I think this will turn out to be an excellent purchase. Now to get a bigger one for my 40 pound mixed breed who seems jealous that her sister got a gift and she didn't.
