Lick Mats

The action of licking (and chewing!) is so enriching for dogs as it releases serotonin and dopamine – two chemicals found in the brain that aid in relaxation and have a calming effect on our dogs. In safe environments, licking activities can be calming in times of stress or heightened anxiety; such as bath time, during grooming, or when your pup is hyped-up and can’t settle. Licking activities are something you can incorporate into your dog’s daily routine – ditch the bowl at meal times and try a fun feeder!
