Why Your Dog Needs a Snuffle Mat

Every dog has their own personality that shines through and makes them unique. One thing that all of our cuddly canines share is the need to act on their instincts every now and then. Snuffle mats provide a clever and fun way to help our friends do just that – and it’s pretty fun for us too!

A snuffle mat can be as simple as a mat that has pieces of fleece or other soft material sticking through the top. When you put food in this strange-looking mat, your dog gets to sniff around and search for its favorite treats.
