Scat Mat

Help your cat or dog learn good house manners by keeping them off furniture or counters, or out of selected rooms. Scat Mat emits a mild, harmless static pulse when your pet touches it. Pets soon learn which parts of your home they should avoid. With three intensity levels, Scat Mat works for any size cat or dog.

The vet approved Scat Mat works when all else fails. Used in conjunction with your normal training techniques, and surface cleaning (as appropriate for elimination behavior changes) the Scat Mat will help you restore harmony to your household.

How It Works:

Habituated behavior patterns are often correctable through simple avoidance of problem spots.

When positioned where pet feet will be just before an unwanted behavior is exhibited (i.e.: scratching, soiling, etc.), the Scat Mat sends a strong message to the pet while it is 'thinking' about performing an undesirable act.

Most pets quickly associate this unpleasant experience with the location. To avoid similar static sensations they begin to avoid the area.

Other reasons why Scat Mat works:

  • Training is consistent at the location, 24 hours a day.
  • It is the environment rather than an owner doing the 'conditioning'.
  • The static sensations generated are sufficiently surprising and unpleasant. These sensations communicate an immediate 'Leave now' message.

We offer the Scat Mat  in the large size which covers a 48" x 20" area. We recommend using this large size to cover the area where the pet stands, sits, or lies before misbehaving.  The Scat Mat consists of a vinyl mat with embedded wire, and a battery pack. No assembly required.

What do the experts say:

By MARTHA STEWART

QUESTION: I have two cats who love to play on our dining-room table. I have tried everything to keep them off. Do you have any suggestions?

ANSWER: If there's a piece of furniture we'd rather not see our pets on, they will invariably make it their favorite place. While you could keep a close eye on your pets and correct the behavior each time it occurs, that approach requires a good deal of vigilance.

Pet expert Marc Morrone has a simpler trick to help break your pet of the habit: Use a Scat Mat, which is available in our store. Scat Mats are small plastic mats that come in shapes such as strips for windowsills, semicircles for garbage cans, and rectangles for areas like your table or a couch. The mats contain a small electrical grid. When your pet steps on one of the mats, it delivers an unpleasant but perfectly safe static-electricity-like effect, and the pet moves right off.

Each time your cats jump on the table, they will most likely do it from the same position and aim for the same spot, so you can simply leave the mat at a fixed point. After your pets have a few run-ins with the mat, they will develop an aversion to the table. After a while, you'll be able to leave the mat unplugged (the association with it will still modify your pets' behavior). Eventually, you'll be able to remove it altogether.

Animal Behavior Consultants Inc.

"I have used the Scat Mat for many cases in which the goal was to keep the pet dog or cat away from an area. These cases have involved a variety of behaviors including: urinating or defecating on particular spots, scratching certain pieces of furniture, jumping onto counters, tables, sofas, etc. spraying or urine marking on particular spots, resting or sleeping in certain areas, barking, whining or meowing/howling - by keeping pet away from doors or windows.

The Scat Mat is effective because it is based on well researched principles of avoidance learning. The electrical stimulation can be adjusted to be startling enough to make the animal reflexively jump off of the Mat, and thus very quickly learn to avoid that spot in the future. The "spot", rather than the Mat itself, usually becomes the salient cue for avoidance. Since the level of electrical stimulation never becomes very high, and the animal learns within a few trials, there is no issue of 'cruelty'. I recommend the Scat Mat frequently and find that most owners are delighted with the results.

"I ordered a Scat Mat about a month ago to cure our poodle of the habit of using the carpet for a bathroom. It worked like a charm! It only took two nights before she came into contact with it and she has never done it since. We have put up with this habit for a year... In just two days my headaches are over. I can't say enough good things about the Scat Mat!! It sure worked in our situation and my only regret is that I never found out about it sooner. Thank you!"

Noise and Vibrations:

Q: Will the Scat Mat hurt my pet?
A: No. The Scat Mat generates pulses like static electricity. You've probably felt these on dry days when you touch a door knob or metal object. They are surprising, but otherwise harmless. The Scat Mat creates this same type of sensation.
