What is a Snuffle Mat?
It’s like a game of hide-and-seek for your dog, only better!
The ASPCA suggests that food games, like a snuffle mat, play a vital role in keeping your pup mentally healthy.
Because sniffing out food is a low-impact game, dogs of all ages can join in the fun. Older pups who are losing their eyesight still have a keen sense of smell. They might not be able to chase a ball but will enthusiastically dig through a snuffle mat.
Some dog owners even use a snuffle mat as an alternative to a simple puzzle toy to keep their pup entertained.
Snuffle mats should only be used under supervision. Once mealtime is over, pack away the snuffle mat to keep your dog from using it as a chew toy.
