I really like this mat! It is premium non-toxic, non-allergenic non-fade, FDA approved silicone, so I know that my dogs are safe. We have two 8 month old Rottweilers that use this and when they eat they really go at it and always manage to scoot the food dishes across the floor and with this it doesn’t go anywhere. It is incredibly easy to clean! All you have to do is wipe it clean or you can even put it in the dishwasher. It contains any spills because it has a raised edge that goes all the way around the mat. The mat is also very durable. It is lightweight and flexible. Also with it being flexible, if you aren’t using it it can be rolled up and stored way easy.
