Dogs explore the world with their noses – a canine’s nose possesses up to 300 million olfactory receptors (about 50 times more than the average human) so it doesn’t come as a surprise that pooches rely on their sniffers to explore the world around them. An important part of canine enrichment is making sure their senses and brain stay sharp: snuffle toys and mats are an ideal way to do just that.
Designed to keep your pet entertained and mentally stimulated, these toys are used to hide treats or kibble that your dog uncovers by sniffing through obstacles such as ruffles, pockets or pouches.
Benefits of a Snuffle Mat
These cute-looking snuffle mats are not just another adorable toy your pet will enjoy playing with – a snuffle mat will stimulate your pet’s mind and senses, reduce stress, and even help with digestion in greedy eaters. If your dog tends to gobble up all their food in a matter of seconds, pour out their kibble on a snuffle mat, as it will force them to slow down as they’ll have to forage for kibble. No more upset tummies after mealtime!
