Which Lick Pad Is Best For Your Dog?

There are several types of Lick Pads For Dogs and in this blog we are going to introduce you to them and give you the facts about each Lick Pad so you can make the best decision for you and your dog. We would love to say, this is best for this breed or this is best for that type of temperament but the truth is, we’ve seen these work on dogs that people have said they failed. We have seen them fail where others have said they flourished. It’s all up to you and your dog. You may decide you would rather have a lickimat that is shaped like a bowl so you can feed food and then your dog can have a lickimat snack after.
