Pets learn to avoid this mat on sight
The Sureguard ssScat Mat is a pet training device used to make problem areas off-limits. It is suitable for cats, kittens, dogs and puppies.

When touched, the mat emits a harmless electronic impulse that your pets will quickly learn to avoid.
Problems with pets in the wrong places?
Simply place the Sureguard ssScat Mat either on the problem area, next to that area or use the mat to create a barrier to that room.
Make indoor areas or rooms off-limits. Make dry outdoor areas off-limits.

The Sureguard ssScat Mat comes in two versions:
- Active Mat (this product page). This mat will correct your pet if it stands on it.
- Non-Active Mat (Dummy Mat). Your pet will avoid this non-powered mat on sight provided your pet remembers the active mat.
How many to buy depends on the problem you are trying to correct. Obviously, you need at least one active mat for training. Dummy Mats are convenient and very economical so you can substitute these once your pet learns the avoidance of the active mat.
Mats can be placed side-by-side to create either longer or deeper barriers. If your pet discovers that jumping the mat avoids correction, then place two mats together to create a deeper barrier that can't be jumped. (Mat Size: 1210mm x 440mm)
In some situations, we recommend you only use active mats. For example, if your pet is jumping onto a table or kitchen countertop, your pet can't see the mat so the Dummy Mat wouldn't be appropriate. Dummy Mats work by sight avoidance. Also, if the risk of crossing the barrier to great, for example, you're creating a barrier to restrict access to a balcony, then only use active mats.
Dummy mats work very well and the avoidance behaviour can last for months but your pet may one day simply forget and discover the Dummy Mat is non-active. If that should occur you must substitute the active mat until your pet learns to respect the mats again.
So, how many should you order? At least one active mat and one dummy mat. Order Dummy Mats Here. You may find you use the Dummy Mats extensively, which is why we have a very economical House Pack which includes an active mat and several Dummy Mats.
• Battery Type: 3x AAA Size ALKALINE (Batteries not included).
• Battery Life: Up to 1200 hours.
Can people walk on the ssScat Mat?
Yes, anyone can walk on the ssScat Mat wearing shoes or slippers. If you walk on the ssScat Mat with bare feet, you will feel a tingle sensation under your feet. The stimulation is specifically designed for paws and doesn't feel significant on human feet.
Can I use the ssScat Mat outdoors?
Yes, provided the electronics won’t get wet. Using under a patio, carport, verandah, etc. is okay. Of course, the Dummy Mat does not contain any electronics so it is allowed to get wet.
How long before I can remove the ssScat Mat?
Although results are quick to achieve you must keep the ssScat Mat in place for several weeks to months so your pet becomes habituated to its new behaviour. If you remove the ssScat Mat too soon, your pet might soon revert to its old behaviour. Although rare, smarter pets may require the ssScat Mat in place constantly. The Dummy Mat can generally be substituted quite soon after stable behaviour is achieved.
Can I use rechargeable batteries?
No, because the battery voltage is wrong. Only install good quality Alkaline non-rechargeable batteries.
How long will the batteries run the device?
You must use Alkaline batteries for proper performance. Battery life is up to 1200 hours.
Can I use Velcro to stop the mat from moving around?
The mats don't easily move around but if you want to keep them exactly in the place you could use velcro or similar under the mat to secure it to the floor.
Great product. Only took cat one time to learn he is no longer using the bonnet of my car to sleep on.Kerry Hobbs
Since purchasing the trainer mat our dog has stopped scratching at the laundry door. I highly recommend this mat for dogs who are misbehaving.Margy
Certainly teach a lesson for my cat who loves jumping to kitchen bench and dining table! He learnt pretty quick after being zapped a few times for ignoring the mat. Now I use it as a deterrent on few of his favourite spots (carpeted area) as he had accidents there. I bought 2 mats and rotate them to the spots where my cat is about his new annoying habit (scratching carpet, etc). Happy with the product, safe for the pet, good tool to improve my pet behaviour and the mat does the job as it is intended to.Yani
