Hard Wearing Round Snuffle Mats with Lick Pad
These boredom buster Snuffle Mats are made from thick fabric so that they are very hardwearing for those over enthusiastic dogs. They are approximately 48x48cm round with a Lick'it pad in the middle. The underside of the Snuffle Pad features a suction cup so that the mat can be stuck down to a suitable hard-surface floor.
Our circular snuffle mats are a type of interactive dog toy designed to engage a dog's sense of smell and provide mental stimulation. They often used as a tool for slowing down fast eaters, providing enrichment, and offering a fun activity for dogs.
Here's how a snuffle mat works:
Construction: Our snuffle mats consists of a non-slip base with centre suction cup. The top surface is made from thick fabric loops arranged all around the upper surface that you can hide treats in for your dog.
Hide Treats: The idea is to hide your dog's favorite treats or pieces of dry dog food within the mat. The dog then has to use their nose and paws to search through the mat and find the hidden treats.
Nose Work: Dogs have an incredible sense of smell, and using a snuffle mat engages their natural instinct to search and forage for food. This type of mental stimulation is great for keeping dogs entertained and can be particularly useful for dogs that need an outlet for their energy.
Slow Feeding: In addition to being an engaging toy, snuffle mats can be used as a slow feeder. If your dog tends to eat too quickly, spreading their meal across the mat can make them work for their food, slowing down their eating pace.
Easy to Clean: Our snuffle mats are machine washable for easy cleaning, making them a practical choice for a dog toy.
When using a snuffle mat, always supervise your dog, especially if they are prone to chewing on items. Additionally, be mindful of the size of treats you use to avoid any choking hazards.
