A snuffle mat is the greatest enrichment toy invented,that is used to challenge and stimulate your dog's senses. It engages your dog's sense of smell by mimicking the hunt for food in nature. It also encourages Natural foraging skills.
To use it, ideally you would bury the treats into the mat and give it a good ruffle. Your pet will have to use their paws to dig or their teeth to maneuver the fleece strips to get their food. This takes a lot more mental and physical stimulation for your pet.
Did you know,15 minutes of sniffing uses as many calories as an hour walk! It is a great walk activity for active dogs who still have boundless energy even after a walk. The sniffing also act as a calmer and directs excess energy into a different activity.
The benefits of this are plentiful:
• it will keep your dog young. Mental stimulation will keep their minds sharp. With a healthy mind, the length and quality of life are increased.
• it will make your dog tired. Thinking and problem solving are exhausting. And as the old (and true) saying goes , A tired dog is a good dog". And a good dog gets positive attention and has better bond with his owner, which is really all your dog wants.
•it keeps life interesting and gives your dog something to do.
