How to Encourage a Dog to Be a Less Messy Eater?

There is no doubt that while we all love the pure joy that our pups display when their dinner comes out, they're not always the tidiest of companions!

Our furry family members need a little help keeping the spills and splashes in check, and with a vast range of Dog Feeders and dog feeding mats, the AllPetSolutions team is on hand to help.

Is Newspaper Just as Effective As a Dog Feeder Mat?

Sadly not! There are many ways to manage your canine mealtimes, but dog food mats are the ideal option. Properties include:

  • Non-scratch finishes that will last for years to come.
  • Non-toxic materials without inks, dyes or chemicals.
  • Food grade silicone, safe for any pup to eat those rouge biscuits from!
  • Dishwasher safe for convenient cleaning.
  • Raised edges to keep splashes in place.

It's never a great idea to use anything not designed for feeding since paper or newspaper can contain inks and synthetic chemicals harmful to puppy tummies.

Some of our most popular dog place mats include:

The multi-purpose Double Bowl Dog Feeder, complete with removable stainless steel bowls and a dinnertime friendly dog feeder mat.

Our Navy Silicone Feeding Mat, with an odour resistant finish for even the smelliest of fish dinners that your canine loves!

Do I Need Dog Food Mats for Any Age Dog?

We'd recommend it! Dogs are sensory creatures, and they often don't go straight in for the kill when it's teatime.

They like to sniff, lick, dig down to see what treats lie beneath, and explore their dinner bowl. Some pups even prefer to take out a few biscuits and scatter them about to get the pick of the tastiest morsels!

A mat for dog bowls keeps the mess at bay, ensures that spillages stay off your floor, and means your pop can relax and dine in peace without worrying about how many spills they happen to make.
