Safely, effectively and harmlessly teach your pet to stay away from areas that you want to protect such as window sills, mantels, counter ledges and any other slim areas.
The ScatMat Strip is a pet training device that utilizes a harmless static charge that trains your cat or dog to stay off those protected areas.
Like the original PetSafe ScatMat, this slim version uses a safe, effective, harmless, and mild static pulse that occurs when dogs, cats or other pets touch the strip. This is the perfect cat training or dog training device! Results are quick and the training process is easy! This product is an ideal aid in knowing how to keep dogs off furniture while you are away. No more scratched up chairs, arm rests, or window sills!
The ScatMat Strip allows you to choose from three intensity levels depending upon the type and size of your cat or dog. This ScatMat is powered by a 9 volt battery.
This training device is also veterinarian approved. For optimal training, use any ScatMat product along with normal cat training or dog training techniques and surface cleaning to reinforce the behavior changes.
Why 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 ScatMat Strip 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 the ScatMat Strip Works:
- Training is consistent at the location, 24 hours a day.
- It is the environment, rather than the pet owner, doing the conditioning.
- The static sensations generated are sufficiently surprising and unpleasant. These sensations communicate an immediate "Leave now" message.

ScatMats and ScatMat Strips are recommended by veterinarians, behaviorists and trainers as a safe, effective way to break habitual problems.
Frequently Asked Questions About The Contech/PetSafe ScatMat Products:
Will the ScatMat Strip hurt my pet?
No. The ScatMat generates pulses like static electricity. You've probably felt these on dry days when you touch a handle, knob or other metal object. They are surprising, but otherwise harmless. The ScatMat creates this same type of sensation.
Will the ScatMat Strip harm my child?
No. Your child will feel a static type sensation when stepping on the mat with bare or stocking feet. It's surprising, but harmless
Can I use my ScatMat Strip outside?
We do not recommend using the ScatMat outside. The power pack is not waterproof and when exposed to dust and dirt, there will be a dramatic reduction in the ScatMat's ability to detect an animal. If the power pack becomes wet, it will stop functioning.
Will I feel a static pulse if I walk on my ScatMat Strip?
You will feel a static pulse if you walk on the ScatMat in bare or stocking feet. The static pulse can be felt through material as thick as denim.
What setting should I use if I have both small and large pets to train?
Use the High setting.
What do the experts say about the ScatMat, the ScatMat Strip and its use training pets?
The manufacturer of the ScatMat consulted numerous animal welfare authorities when they brought the ScatMat to market. They concluded it has a positive roll to play in behavior training of pets.
How long does the battery last?
A single nine-volt battery can operate for up to six months (or 10,000 activations).
