Snuffle mats are a great way to provide plenty of mental stimulation to your dog! When a dog uses their nose to find food it requires more energy then using their sight which helps reduce boredom by giving them a challenge. Why should we challenge our dogs? They are carnivores! Instinctively they were born to sniff out their prey before they consume it and we take that away from them by feeding them from a bowl so a snuffle mat is the perfect way to provide that challenge!
