We provide snuffle mats and tug toys for your pet. They are all hand-crafted and inspired by our dog, but made for yours. Our tug toys are super soft on your hands (and their gums), they don’t frey like traditional rope toys (causing large vet bills), and they are super stretchy (allowing for better games of tug)!
There are so many great uses for a snuffle mat, how many of these apply to you and your pup?
Snuffle Mat Uses
– For our kibble fed friends, a snuffle mat can help to slow them down at meal time so they don’t gulp their food and can help in the prevention of bloat.
– A snuffle mat can also help to entice a dog who may be unsure of eating out of traditional plastic/metal bowls.
– A tired dog = a sleepy dog. If your dog suffers from separation anxiety, try giving them a snuffle mat before you leave. Once they have found all the treats/food they will be too sleepy to realize you are gone.
SENIOR OR RECOVERING DOGS
– For older dogs who are not as mobile as they once were or have trouble eating out of a bowl, the snuffle mat is flat and closer to the ground. If they have trouble bending down to eat their food, the mat can be placed on a box or small table to help alleviate the strain on their bodies.
– Dogs recovering from surgery or restricted on the amount of exercise they can do, the snuffle mat is great as it provides mental stimulation without the physical requirement.
*Disclaimer: Please consult with your veterinarian prior to the use of a snuffle mat for recovering/restricted dogs.
– Snow storms, freezing temperatures, rain, even extreme heat make it impossible to give our dogs the exercise they require. A snuffle mat can help with this by allowing them to work on their brain & nose skills.
– Use the snuffle mat to help distract your dog when introducing them to new environments, sights or smells. It will help them not to focus on the anxiety causing noises.
– Assists with crate training by making crate time = fun time!
– When you have company over to your house, give the dog a snuffle mat in a separate safe area for them to be able to settle down and not be anxious around the new people in the home.
– Help acclimate your puppy/dog to the car by allowing them to use the snuffle mat while on car rides.
– Keep your dog focus on something constructive for them rather than destructive for you.
– Encourages their natural instinct to sniff/forage for their food.
