Hi Kickstarter! I'm Harry and I am the founder of The Paws and Go Mat.
Be sure to scroll down and learn more about our pledges!
I am always battling with my dog Skipper to try and get him to wipe his muddy and dirty paws and the products we have tried to solve this have not been very effective. So I set about my own solution, if there was a separate compartment in the mat I knew Skipper would pause and search around for it, not only is this an exciting game for Skip but it also would dry his paws for him.
What I have come up with is a non slip, no mess, machine washable, fully cotton and microfibre mat to catch as much of the dirt as possible, that to the naked eye looks like a normal mat however to dogs its very different and just a small amount of training is required.
The mat has been specially manufactured to ensure the compartment automatically closes, it blends in with the fibres and isnt a trip hazard.
Its a very simple product and is not going to change the world but it will help keep your floors clean, it helped us and I am sure it can help you too.
Reaching our goal on this campaign will allow us to place a bulk order with our reliable european manufacturer!

Very, very, little! I was so surprised with how quick Skipper picked it up. For the first few times show your dog the treat being put in the compartment and let them have a go at searching and finding it. Keep reminding your dog there is a treat there by tapping the compartment. Within no time at all your dog will know where the compartment is and will use the mat all by himself even if there is no treat in there.
A handy training guide is included with every mat to ensure you and your dog use the mat as efficiently as possible.
No, you only need to use a treat to train your dog, after some practice your dog will presume the treat is always there and still search for it, this allows you to keep an eye on their collar - size aswell!
I have sourced a reliable european manufacturer and therefore if we are successful we will start to produce the mats hopefully as soon as June and then deliver them to you as quickly as possible! Reaching our goal on this campaign will allow us to place a bulk order with them.
Each Paws and Go Mat will be delivered to you rolled and with a protective brown paper sleeve. Lay the mat on a flat surface for approximately one hour to let it naturally unroll and then it is ready to use! Also enclosed will be care instructions on how to look after your mat and a handy training guide for you and your dog.
We would love you and your dog to help us spread the Paws and Go Mat Message, please take photos or videos of your pooch wiping his paws and tag them using the hashtag #pawsandgomat on Facebook, twitter and Instagram!
