Bear-y Easy Lick Mat

Bear-y Easy Lick Mat

How to create this bear-y easy lick mat

This week we're keeping things simple with only 3 ingredients. This lick mat uses your dog's food as the base, carrot, and pumpkin. Carrots are a great source of vitamin A and promote vision health. Pumpkin aids in digestion and soothes upset stomach.

You'll need:

  • A Camp Hound Lick Mat - here.
  • 1/3 cup your choice of dog food
  • 1 carrot
  • 2 tbsp canned pumpkin
  • Mini cookie cutters - similar here.


  1. Rehydrate your kibble in 2/3 cup warm water, let sit for at least one hour. Using wet food instead? Skip this step!
  2. Slice your carrot at a 45 degree angle to create 1/4 inch thick disks. Use your cookie cutters to cut bear shapes.
  3. Mash your kibble with a fork, add it to your lick mat.
  4. Add your pumpkin to the honeycomb sections of your lick mat. (optional alternative: mix the pumpkin in with your kibble instead)
  5. Arrange your add-ons to your liking on your lick mat
  6. Freeze & serve!
