Snuffle mat for dogs
Meal times can be so much more fun than gulping from a bowl!
This fun, no-human-needed enrichment tool provides your dog with an appropriate energy outlet to calmly engage their nose and brain. Sprinkle any kibble, dry, or semi-moist dog treats into your snuffle mat and watch your dog forage through the fleece to find each piece.
Do you find it hard to settle your dog between turns in class, when waiting around at trials, or while you have guests over? Add a snuffle mat to your dog’s regular enrichment routine so that bringing it out when your dog is highly aroused becomes a cue to relax and self-soothe.
Do you have a puzzle toy superstar? Advance the difficulty of the game by teaching your pup to go find a snuffle mat you’ve hidden in the house, then watch them independently problem solve how to get to sniff out their dinner.
How about a physical and a mental challenge for the ultimate multitasking? Place your snuffle mat on an elevated bed or an uneven wobble board. Then stand back and see them use their muscles to hold them in new positions while they snuffle.
Our favourite part of snuffle time is getting some chores done!
Choosing the right size snuffle mat
Small snuffle mats measure 6 inches by 6 inches (1/2 foot by 1/2 foot).
They will contain a small number of treats, making them ideal for little dogs or puppies. For working precision behaviours in obedience and agility, the small size allows for precision lines and short transition times between repetitions.
Medium snuffle mats measure 12 inches by 6 inches (1 foot by 1/2 foot).
They are large enough to contain a handful of treats, and are an ideal size for taking to class. They fit nicely in your gear bag yet aren’t too large to become cumbersome when travelling.
Large snuffle mats measure 12 inches by 12 inches (1 foot by 1 foot).
They are large enough to contain a full meal and are the preferred size for avid users and multi-dog households. This size also provides you with the most versatility for different home and sports uses.
Care & Cleaning | Washable Snuffle Mat
All Snuffles & Tugs must be easy to take care of – we insist. You can machine wash your snuffle mat for dogs in cold water. Hang to dry. Please refrain from putting any of our snuffle mats in a machine dryer.
