Don't the dogs try and chew off the things sticking up/out?

I have 5 canines of different types. Among them is a 9-month-old pit bull puppy. This pet inhales his food before I've got the others fed. Being a young puppy he chews on whatever. Nevertheless the whole mat reduces him down so a lot it's incredible. He is so bent on obtaining the kibbles out of the mat he doesn't think of eating the important things holding up. I do believe if I left the mat down after I fed him he would ultimately start chewing it. I did find that due to the fact that the kibbles I offer him are tiny I had to reduce the stand things down a little bit. I have another pet that I bought a wooly floor covering for- -grown-up pet dog, non chewer- the mat works wonderful for reducing his consuming. I would absolutely advise the wooly floor covering to slow down your canine's eating. I've tried various other points to slow down eating habits however nothing just as good as the wooly floor covering. I do agree that it's awful as well as pricey yet really worth it.

What is the material? (Top& base). Is the fabric like sweatshirt material or like fleece? Is the underside base a sturdy material or flexible?

top product resembles denim. Base is rubber mat. This item is outstanding.

where is this made

Wooly is an up-cycled adverse waste item made in a little neighborhood in country Thailand. The Bua Bhat Factory, a modern women-owned business, weaves each mat from pre-consumer material left over from the industrial textile sector.

Why is there such reluctance to say what this is made of? Answers like "upcycled" and "preconsumer" materials are completely meaningless.

The seller has currently addressed this concern. They said, "The fibers are especially made from a cotton/ polyester mix."

Is this worth the high cost? This seems like a $20-$25 product, not $40.

I believe it depends upon exactly how slow you want your canine to eat. I have a pit bull/boxer mix and also he can undergo 2 cups of dry food in 20 seconds flat. The wooly mat reduces him to regarding 2-3 mins. For me it's worth the price. I've tried the bowls that are supposed to reduce consuming and also they do not aid a lot. I concur with you that the mat is most likely overvalued however it does the work. The only thing I've found is I need to eliminate the floor covering as quickly as he's with eating or he'll draw the string points out. Hope this assists.

When people ask what thw material is, answers range from cotton/polyester,thick jersey, light denim/ canvas to wool. are any of these answers right?

There is absolutely nothing on the tag pertaining to the materials. I believe it to be a thick stretch jersey. It hasn't frayed as well as cleanses conveniently.

anyone try this with a cat?

Other products similar to this claim to reduce "stress" and/or relieve anxiety .Why would that be so? And why doesn't this company make that claim?

Sorry I actually don't recognize. I don't believe it lowers stress in my dogs. Nevertheless my pet dog's delight in delving through the mat for treats or kibble. They eat food from the carpeting that they normally wouldn't eat if it was in a bowl. I think it's fun to them.

What is the back like? Looking for something pretty heavy duty. Can anyone post a picture of it? Please and thank you!
