According to the Pet Parenting Blog, “To be mentally stimulated for roughly 15 minutes can burn as much energy as an hour of walking can for your dog.”

“A snuffle mat can be considered as a puzzle dog bowl that is specifically designed to hide dry food, making it more challenging for your dogs to eat, all while encouraging them to practice their innate foraging skills. Snuffle mats act as a dog slow feeder or enrichment toy and require dogs to move the pieces of the mat around to access their food. Snuffle mats are a great tool to use if you are wondering how to make your dog eat more slowly and they can help prevent the dangers of your dog eating too fast.”

Snuffle Mats benefit dogs because they:

  • Provide mental stimulation
  • Prevent speedy eating
  • Reduce begging
  • Burn energy
  • Keep your dog entertained
  • Help curb separation anxiety
  • Reduce stress
  • Stimulate their sense of smell
  • Help keep doggy dementia away
  • Redirect problematic behaviors to positive ones
