Enrichment for our dogs is so important for their mental and physical wellbeing. Providing them with opportunities to exhibit natural behaviours which amongst other things, includes hunting for food. This offers them some excellent mental and physical stimulation. We can easily provide this by feeding in some more exciting, challenging and stimulating ways.
Lots of our feeding mats and bowls encourage licking. Licking can help to distract from stressful situations and relieve stress and boredom. Licking promotes calmness by releasing endorphines and is very soothing for dogs.
In our ‘Enrichment’ section, you will find a choice of options. Remember though that it is only enriching if the same activity is not being repeated day in, day out, so mix it up and keep it interesting for your dogs.

Beco Natural Rubber Ball£5.99 – £9.99Quick View
Three of the best activities for dogs, play, enrichment and scent work. With this natural rubber ball you can easily combine all three. It bounces and wobbles making play so much fun, it has a hole for hiding treats, so can easily be used for enrichment games, or why not fill with tasty treats and hide the ball, encouraging your dog to use their nose to sniff it out. Made from a springy natural rubber, it’s suitable for heavy chewers. Believe me, my dogs are heavy chewers!
This ball pairs perfectly with the peanut butter to spread around the inside or the meat pate, which you can cut into appropriate sizes and fill as required. Add in a few biscuits too and your dogs will love you for it.
Beco Natural Rubber Hoop on Rope£7.99 – £10.99Quick View
I have always enjoyed a good game of tug of war with my dogs. Daisy and Max love it and it’s a great way to exercise their minds and bodies while building a healthy bond between us.
What better to do that than by using this natural rubber hoop on a strong but soft to touch recycled cotton rope. The springy natural rubber is soft on dog’s teeth and the knotted rope makes it a great toy for tug-o-war or fetch.
Great for the dogs, better for the environment.

LickiMat Buddy – Orange£6.99Quick View
Enrichment is so important for our pets and you won’t find a much easier and fun way than using a Lickimat to release those all calming endorphins. The Buddy is perfect for dogs like Max that are not likely to pick them up and try to eat the mat as well as the food that you put on them (Daisy!). Perfect for use with Peanut butter, LickiMat sprinkles, banana, raw or wet food.
LickiMat Slomo Green£12.95Quick View
As with all products in the LickiMat range, the Slomo is fantastic for food enrichment. There are two different textured surfaces divided up into four sections so you can easily section up different foods if you wish. Making every meal time a great experience.
It is also much more robust for the Daisy type dogs of this world. This also makes it a great choice for puppies that might be more liable to chew.
I think possibly one of the best attributes though, is that you can use it as a slow feeding bowl, especially for small and medium sized dogs. This greatly reduces the risk of bloat for those dogs, like my own, that like to inhale rather than eat their meals if they are given half a chance!
LickiMat Sprinkles Liver & Turmeric 150g£5.49Quick View
More enrichment fun for your dogs with our LickiMat Sprinkles. A hand-baked, crushed biscuit dog treat to use with your chosen mat. Quick and easy to use.
Use as a tasty topper to add to your yoghurt, peanut butter or mashed banana (other mushy food treats are available) for extra crunch. Alternatively wet your LickiMat, add the sprinkles and watch your dogs enjoy!
LickiMat Wobble Purple£13.95Quick View
The LickiMat Wobble is a dog bowl like no other. You just spread the food over the soft and soothing bumps, then the bowl just wobbles around as your dog licks the food. A slow feeder you dog will enjoy. The beauty of this is that while it is a challenge and a fun way of consuming meals, for all of those clever dogs, it will not frustrate your dog. This is because the food is easily available on the surface of the wobble and they can reach it at all times.
However if you think your dog might find it a little too challenging to start with, you can turn the Wobble inside out so that the bumps are on the outside and the Wobble not wobbling, therefore much easier for the dogs to get their food but still having more fun.
Dogs love to work for their food. Make their mealtimes more enriching today!
Slodog Slow Feeder Plate – Blue£10.95Quick View
The SloDog slow feeder dog plate, helping your dogs to saver their food. Ideal for use with dry food. A large surface area so great for bigger dogs too. Helps to stop dogs gulping their food by spreading it across the shallow pockets, therefore reducing the risk of bloat.
