Could this be the best snuffle mat for your dog?

If you have a dog, chances are you're always on the lookout for new toys and ways to keep them entertained. One product that has been gaining popularity lately is the snuffle mat designed for dogs. Our handmade Australian snuffle mat is a mat lined with fabric and other materials, and with a good amount of pockets and pouches to hide your dried dog treats. The idea is that you can hide treats in the pockets or pouches, and your dog has to use their nose to find them. This can be a great way to keep your dog's mind active, as well as providing them with a tasty reward. There are many different snuffle mats on the market, so how do you choose the right one for your dog? Consider the size of your dog and the type of fabric or material the mat is made from. You also want to make sure that the mat is easy to clean - after all, you don't want your dog's snuffle mat to become a breeding ground for bacteria. With so many factors to consider, it can be tough to decide which snuffle mat is right for your pup. However, Farmer Pet's has done the research for you and have found what we believe is the best snuffle mat on the market.


How to use a Snuffle Mat?

Snuffle mats are easy to use and they’re great for providing mental stimulation to your dog.

The idea of the snuffle mat is to place your dog’s kibble or treats in the mat for them to find. If you don’t feed kibble to your dog, you can place a few treats in the mat for your dog to find.

As you can imagine, this will slow your dog down quite a bit while they’re eating. It also encourages your dog to use their nose, which provides mental stimulation as your dog is trying to find the food hidden in the mat. 

You can use your snuffle mat instead of a food bowl when you feed your dog, or for a moment of enrichment throughout the day, as they are an excellent boredom buster. 

Note: as with all games and toys, dogs should be supervised while engaging with the snuffle mat. Remove it once your dog has found all the food or treats to prevent them from eating the mat or peeing on it. 

What do you put in a Snuffle Mat?

Small, dry treats are best to be put in snuffle mats to avoid making an unnecessary mess. 

If you feed your dog kibble, you can use some of their daily ration for the snuffle mat. 

We know of a few dog owners whose pups didn’t care for kibble but are obsessed with Farmer Pete’s Treats, in particular the Roo Meaty Bites or Chicken Meaty Bites are very popular also any Jerky that can be broken into smaller pieces and placed in the snuffle mat.

Are Snuffle Mats good for dogs?

Yes, snuffle mats are good for dogs as there are many benefits for using them. 

One of the benefits is that they’re slowing down fast eaters. If you feed your dog their main meal from a snuffle mat, your dog will naturally eat slower. 

Another benefit is that your dog gets to use their nose during the activity, which is hugely satisfying. 

You can also use a snuffle mat to practice self-control exercises with your dog. For example, you can tell your dog to sit and wait while you prepare the snuffle mat.

What are Snuffle Mats made of?
