Scat Mats and Strips Scat Strip (46" x 3")
The Skat Mat is the first tool that effectively keeps my lab off of the sofa. One correction was all it took to keep her on the floor. She does, however, continue to get on the sofa when we forget to put the mat on it. The best case scenario is probably using the tool the first day you bring your pet home. In our case, our lab has already learned that a "mat free" sofa does not cause her to receive a correction.

These mats are great!! My dog only got on them two times and hasn't touched them since. I think after another few days I can turn off the power. I would highly recommend them to pet owners.

I purchased the long, thin scat mat to stop my very tall puppies from "counter surfing." Before buying this, nothing was safe on the counter. I first got one, and it worked so well that I bought a second one for the other length of counter. I would highly recommend it. It has 3 different settings, I keep ours on low. I have also zapped myself, because I wouldn't want to hurt my dogs. It isn't painful, more startling, than anything. And you can also wipe it clean if it gets anything on it.

We have two boxers that think the couches and chairs are theirs. By placing the scat mat on each location visited by them it only took one contact moment and they were convinced that this was no longer a desirable location. We no longer have to turn on the mat but simply place it in view and they avoid the area. Used it in kitchen to keep them from placing paws on counters and it worked. We really liked the fact that the static charge emitted when touched was not so harsh as to cause great pain....just enough that they do not like it...I mistakenly sat on it so can speak from personal experience.
