EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The idea behind this silicone treat mat is to distract your dog from their bath-time anxiety.

On one side, you'll find a textured center where you can spread their favorite soft food or treat. We opted for peanut butter, but other options include pumpkin puree or yogurt.

The back side of it is covered in suction cups that stick to smooth surfaces, such as the walls of your shower, side of your tub, or even any flat, smooth ground outside if that's where you typically bathe your dog. The cups are strong and they keep the lick mat securely in place, but still easy to peel off when you're all done.

This mat is meant to keep your dog calm and focused on getting the treat out, so they won't try to escape and you can bathe them more easily.

To clean it, you can pop it in the dishwasher or just wash by hand.

Why Is It Useful?

If your dog is very food-motivated and gets anxious around bath time, this mat will keep them calm and distracted as they focus on getting the treat out. It's also useful as a way to lure your dog into the tub before their bath, and to reward them afterwards. You can also just use it as an everyday boredom-busting treat mat.

Who It’s For

We think this would probably work best with dogs that are super food-motivated.

What To Be Aware Of

When we tried it with Dewey, it didn't seem to do much to calm his nerves. He was too distracted by everything going on during the bath to pay any attention to the lick mat (unless we held it up to him). Your experience will depend on your dog, but this mat may not always be the most effective during bath time.
