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.

It's incredibly versatile and can be used to quickly correct all sorts of behavioural problems, even when you're not at around.

When touched, the mat emits a harmless electronic impulse which 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.

Stop pets jumping onto your car. Avoid soiled, scuffed and scratched paintwork.

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.

In some situations we recommend you only use active mats. For example, if your pet is jumping onto a table or kitchen counter-top, 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.

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. When run continually the batteries last about 6 weeks.

Can I use Velcro to stop the mat moving around?

The mats don't easily move around but if you want to keep them exactly in place you could use velcro or similar under the mat to secure it to the floor.


Customer Reviews

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.


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.

    Works like a charm
    Our habitual night time door scratcher only stepped on the mat twice (sprang up into the air both times) before deciding the mat, and the doorway it belongs to are posessed. She now gives both a wide berth at all hours -even when the mat is off-and we have peace at last. Excellent outcome, money very well spent.

    Max the Cat - retrained
    Worked really well - the cat touched once or twice now no longer scratches and howls at the bedroom door. They also now stay out of the bedroom during the day because the mat is outside the doorway.

    Dog Trouble
    I was very afraid of using this product feeling bad that I am hurting my dog due to him scratching on the doors while I left for work. But since using this mat he has not going near the door or scratched it. It is an amazing result and now when it’s off he doesn’t even want to think of going near it. I have full faith in this mat and have recomended it to a few of my friends. Excellent product and will fully recommend it coming from a very stresswd out fur baby mother who isn’t anymore.

    Good product
    I had a problem with my cat waking us up at night by scratching at the door. A couple of zaps on the mat outside the bedroom door and she's taken a step back. We can finally sleep. Put it on the inside of the front door and she's stopped rushing out. Only thing is its not wide enough because the cats can jump over and the dogs just step over. Use it effectively and it will make your life easier.

    Keeps our dogs off the carpet, rugs and stairs
    We have a new house and don’t want our dogs going upstairs or on the carpet or rugs, after a couple of paw zaps on the mat they’ve learnt very quickly where they can and can’t go, we even just turn it off now and they still won’t cross it, they have however become a little sneaky and try and find ways around the mat

    Scat mats were perfect for reminding my JR dogs not to pee on my treadmill outside under my patio. Had previously consulted dog behaviourist and spent $ on deter products. Thanks Scat Mat!!!!!!

    Scat Mat
    Brilliant product, it's designed to stop my cat from going to the area where the mat is placed. My cat had been urinating in the wrong place, we have used the scat mat to help retrain him into using the litter tray which s located in a different room. The change in the cats behaviour was almost immediate.

    Clever Cat
    I bought the mat to stop my two naughty bengals from going upstairs it worked for about 10 minutes before the female realise she can just jump over it. The male cat is however very respectful and refuses to go anywhere near the mat. Great product.[ EDITOR: Hi Deborah, Place the mat temporarily long ways and close of the side access, that will create a 1.2 metre jump for your cat. When you see the cat not going through then turn it back around or place a dummy mat in that spot.]

    Scat mat
    While my cat still occasionally gets on the kitchen bench, it is a lot less frequent now. It used to be as soon as you turned your back she was up there, now she is much less keen to investigate what food may be up there for her to steal.

    Sureguard scatmat works perfectly!
    We bought the scatmat to prevent the neighbors cat from sleeping on our brand new car and leaving scratches on it .She stopped getting on the car after only 2 nights. We now put it on the bonnet every night without ever needing to switch it on.The neighborhood cat has clearly remembered that our car is off limits !

    Excellent Product
    This is a great product. I bought it to keep my 8mth old Labrador out of the bedroom and kitchen. It worked straight away. He knows when the mat is on the ground its a no-go area. Even the dummy mat works!! Would recommended highly.
