FACT: Dogs love to work for their food!

Did you know that, given the choice between provided food or food that requires effort to obtain, dogs prefer to work for it! Snuffle mats tap into their natural canine urges to forage and hunt for their food – it is rewarding and mentally enriching way to eat.

The Dig It Play & Treat Fluffy Mats are a fun design, full of spaces where dry treats and/or kibble can be hidden to entice your dog into sniffing and foraging for their food. Giving your dog an outlet for these natural canine behaviours is an excellent form of mental exercise, which makes dogs (and humans!) feel more physically tired than physical effort alone! Fifteen minutes of sniffing is as tiringĀ  as an hour long walk!

Try feeding a portion of your dogs meals in a snuffle mat a few times a week, and watch how excited they get whenever their snuffle mat gets brought out.

Using a snuffle mat allows your dog to decode what’s in front of them with their nose, which can:

  • Alleviate stress
  • Provide mental stimulation
  • Encourage slower eating habits
  • Initiate sniffing and foraging centres of the brain, which are pleasurable for the dog
  • Create mental stimulation for dogs on restricted exercise
  • Help calm an overstimulated pup
Play it safe: No toy is indestructible. Do not leave toys with unsupervised pets. Remove and replace if damaged
