I bought the to use with my dog while he is working on the water treadmill at physical therapy. It sticks to the glass well. Just 3 stars because my dog didn't find it motivating enough to help him with his workout. When the treadmill wasn't moving, he licked it just fine. Once the treadmill was going, it wasn't enough to keep him up front and I had to revert to hand feeding. I like that it's dishwasher safe.

We've used this once and our little guy still didn't distract from his displeasure of bathtime. The grooves for the PB must've been a little too deep for him to figure out, which is really unusual as he is a 13 week old Aussie puppy. He liked it better outside of the bathtub. The rubber edges are easily chewed, so this MUST be a toy given with acute observation.
occupies but not motivates

Keeps her occupied but not motivated to get in the bath...I got bit trying to get her into the tub, so the picture below is peanut butter on it, but stuck to the side of the table she lays under a lot...
Bath time life saver

My pup hates the water –bath time was usually a nightmare. It was a two person job, and was impossible to do without getting myself and the whole bathroom soaked. Luckily for me, he LOVES peanut butter so this was the perfect solution. It keeps him completely distracted while I wet him down, shampoo, rinse, and dry him off. So simple yet so effective and it manages to stay in place even throughout all the licking.

These (I have two - one for each side of the kitchen sink where I give my buddy a haircut) are the best distraction! They enable me to cut hair around delicate areas that normally would be a complete struggle. They do not stick as promised (as mentioned in other reviews), so I just lay them - filled with peanut butter - on the bottom of each side of the sink. Charley is so busy getting at the peanut butter that I can lift his tail, lift his feet, etc. I do highly recommend these!
One unfortunate flaw

These are great with the exception of one thing. If your dog is a chewer these are going to get destroyed immediately if you don't take them away when they are done licking the treat away. I left these with my pups as a treat when I left the house for the day. Both of the mats were chewed to pieces when I got home. Sadly money wasted for me. These are a great idea with supervision and prompt removal.
haven’t used yet

Just got in mail today, I think this is gonna help make bath time for my girls so much easier... I normally just rub some peanut butter on the side of the tub for them.... but this is a much better and cleaner way to do it so I’m glad I ordered this & I’m sure it’ll do a great job just as I’m expecting.. oh and I’ve seen reviews of dogs tearing them into shreds... idk how that’s possible lol only put it in the bath whenever it’s bath time and take it out when you’re done so your pup is only around it when you’re around.. my girls don’t chew stuff up anyways so we’ll be all good :)
Not too helpful if your dog isn't big into food

My pup isn't a foodie, so this was not enough of a distraction from the horror of the bath.
However, I stuck it on the outside of the tub afterwards and she's been ripping around with occasional stops at the tub.
Sticks well, but also removes easily with the tabs.

So I bought this and tried to give our Ellie a bath but she was still spooked. Got the Aquapaw shower attachment and the first time was a little rough but I just gave Ellie a bath and she stayed focused on licking up some almond butter the entire time. I’ve had to fight to keep her in the tub every time before this. Best bath ever!
Great for baths

I use this for several behaviors where I want my puppy to stand in one position for an extended period of time (bathing, grooming, etc.). I smear either canned cheese, canned food or natural peanut butter (no xylitol, it’s toxic to dogs) and let her get her mind wrapped up in the goodness before I start pick up the comb or water sprayer.
