Welcome to SportyDogGuide’s Dog Feeding Mats With A Lip review!

Does the area around your dog’s food and water bowls look like a disaster zone after feeding? Does your dog splash puddles of water on the floor and wall? Is it time once again to grab a towel or mop and soak up the mess?

Maybe it’s time to get a better feeding mat?

First of all, there are numerous dog feeding mats on the market.

But many are decorative instead of practical. When the day is done, a feeding mat should be:

  • Waterproof
  • Able to keep water off the floor
  • Easy to clean
  • Safe for your dog

Here are 5 recommended dog feeding mats that have a lip to keep food and water off floors.

  1. PETPAWJOY Waterproof Pet Food Mat
    PetPawJoy Dog Feeding Mat
    The PETPAWJOY mat is perfect for feeding a large dog or two smaller ones. At nearly 2 feet across, there’s plenty of of room for a large food bowl and large water bowl, or a couple small feeding bowls and a water bowl. The mat’s bumpy texture provides a non-slip surface to keep everything in place, while a 1/4-inch lip prevents water and kibbles from going over the edge. You can clean the mat with a rinse under the sink or put it in the dishwasher.  It also folds for quick storage. Available in gray only. Check current price on Amazon.

    Material: Food-Grade Silicone
    Dimensions: 23.6 inches wide x 15.7 inches deep x 0.25 inches high (raised lip)

  2. Hoki Found FDA Grade Silicone Pet Food Mat

    HOKI Found Dog Feeding Mat

    If you have a small- to medium-size dog, the Hoki Found mat is a good choice. However, I don’t recommend it for large dogs. The mat has a flat, anti-slip surface and sports a paw print on the lower right corner for a bit of flair. It’s also dishwasher safe and can be rolled up to tuck away when not in use or for travel purposes. Available in gray or black. Get yours here

    Material: Food-Grade Silicone
    Dimensions: 18.6 inches wide x 11.8 inches deep

  3. PetFusion Waterproof Pet Food Mat 

    PetFusion Dog Feeding Mat
    PetFusion’s makes feeding mats for dogs of all sizes, offering versions in small, large and x-large. You can also choose from three colors: beige, blue and gray. One nice design feature is the curved front, which helps keep dogs from stepping on the mat while eating. However, this gap in the back can be a place where food falls onto the floor in some cases. The surface and bottom both have a pebbly texture to prevent food and mat from sliding. The x-large mat features a very high 1.5-inch raised lip to protect your floors from sloppy eaters and drinkers. It’s also dishwasher safe. This mat is not designed to fold for storage, so it will be a permanent piece of the feeding station. Read the many positive reviews here.

    Material: Food-Grade Silicone
    Dimensions: Small – 18 inches wide x 12 inches deep x 0.3 inches high
    Large – 24 inches wide x 16 inches deep x 0.4 inches high
    X-Large – 34 inches wide x 23 inches deep x 1.5 inches high

  4. WooPet! Pet Food Mat
    WooPet Pet Food Mat
    WooPet!’s feeding mat features an aggressive pattern of bone and fish anti-slip bumpers on its surface to keep bowls in place as well as trap spilled food and water. The underside is reinforced with a pebble-like pattern of grippy beads to resist sliding. A 0.6-inch raised lip is bolstered with a 0.2-inch side lip for maximum containment. There’s room for a pair of feeding bowls and a water bowl, making it great for those of us who have two dogs. This mat is too rigid to roll up, but it is dishwasher safe. See the price on Amazon now.

    Material: Food-Grade Silicone
    Dimensions: 24 inches wide x 16 inches deep x 0.6 inches high

  5. ONME Dog Feeding Mat
    ONME Dog Feeding Mat
    ONME’s feeding mat has a surface similar to the PetFusion mat – a bumpy, pebble-like pattern to keep feeding bowls in place. The mat comes in medium and large sizes, features a 0.25-inch raised lip and is available in gray. The medium size is a good choice for smaller dogs, while the large is best for big breeds and pairs of pooches. This dishwasher-safe mat folds easily, rolling up tight for quick storage. The ONME Dog Feeding Mat is perhaps the best choice if you want a mat for home and to use while traveling with your dog.

    Material: Food-Grade Silicone
    Dimensions: Medium – 18.9 inches wide x 11.8 inches deep x 0.25 inches high
    Large – 23.6 inches wide x 15.8 inches wide x 0.6 inches high
