Now that I have your attention... you did read that correctly!
Giving your dog 15 minutes of sniffing burns the same amount of calories as a 1 hour walk.
Anyone who has taken a class with me, or been into our business knows we're a huge advocate for canine enrichment! More and more pet parents are looking for ways to provide mental stimulation for their dogs and one of our favourite ways is by a Snuffle Mat.
Snuffle mats are usually made of felt or fleece material that allow treats to be hidden. Our favourite of the PawzNDogz Snuffle Mats are made of thick cotton polyester webbing, felt & food grade silicone for the lick mats!
These mats encourage dogs natural sniffing and foraging behaviours. The mental stimulation mimics dogs natural environments for searching and working for their food. This helps burn energy and decrease boredom which helps decrease behavioural problems.

What can you use in snuffle mats?
