This feeding mat stimulates a dog’s natural foraging instincts by mimicking the hunt for food in grass and fields, stimulating their noses and brains to earn their meals.

Feeding mat mimics hunting for food in grass and fields, as your dog’s ancestors did.
Stimulates your pup’s nose and brain to find the food.
Made from sustainably sourced materials that are non-toxic and safe.
Perfect for all breeds from small to large.
Easy to clean—simply throw the mat in the washer and dryer.
Intended for pets only. Remove all packaging before use. Product is intended for interactive play during mealtime, not for chewing. Always supervise your pet during use. Do not leave product on floor between meals or in crates or kennels. Inspect product regularly and replace if torn, broken or damaged. Keep out of reach of children.
This is a great product to keep your dog sniffing for awhile as they search for the food or treats trapped in this mat. The sense of smell occupied about 60% of a dog's neurological system, and so it is extremely important to encourage them using it. It calls them down when this need is satisfied. I use it before taking my pup for a walk, and as a result he is calmer on the leash.
On another note, Chewy is such a wonderful company! I'm blown away by their generosity and speedy response to customers. A surprising and unusual high level of customer service in addition to all other departments of this company! I'm grateful!!
Wonderful activity for dogs

We got this Snuffle Mat for our 4 year old dog to keep him busy on cold WI winder days. He loves it and enjoying finding the hidden pieces of dry dog food. As a bonus our 16 year old dog decided that he would like to try it and I was surprised how much he enjoys the Snuffle Mat too. It was something I had never heard about until a dog trainer told us about it and I am so happy I ordered one for our dogs. Great activity for young and old dogs. Great item for dogs and a wise purchase for dog owners in my opinion.
Great for diggers too

I have a Bichon and she is a rambunctious “sporty” and active girl! We purchased this mat as a food puzzle but she has all kinds of “fun” with it. She uses it to lay on- drag around the house and dig at instead of digging on our expensive carpet. She likes to search for kibble in there too- it’s great! easy to take on vacay and easy to wash and dry- no signs of wear or tear-no weird odors and we have had ours for 2 years. Good purchase!
EXCELLENT for dogs who eat too quickly

We recently became foster parents to a pibble puppy who was abandoned and living on the streets. Understandably she'd scarf down her kibble when we gave it to her, and we were concerned that she'd make herself sick. Enter the Snuffle Dog Feeding Mat! Simply pour dry kibble onto the mat, use your hand to mix it into the fabric, and watch your dog eat much slower. (Ours makes cute snorting noises when she goes to find the last hidden pieces.)
This mat was especially helpful for us because it also served as a puzzle for our super smart foster and her restless mind.
Oh, and it's machine washable -- if I could give this product 10 stars, I would!
What a Blast!

Always had medium-large dogs and I recently rescued a large, long-haired Chihuahua. I feed her a raw diet but do include a small amount of raw, freeze-dried food. She inhales her meals so I got this snuffle mat to put the freeze-dried food in. I break it up in small bits and put it down for her to snuffle in while I fix her raw dinner. It works great! It slows her down a bit and lets her use her nose (hunting skills). I highly recommend it!
Love this mat

Got this for our almost 2 year old dog for Christmas and even if we don't ever use it again, the calmness is gave us for Christmas dinner made it worth every dollar. XD
Great for puppies

This is a great "busy" mat for your pup. Hide some pieces of your pups favorites treat and she'll love sniffing around to find and eat up those hidden treasures. A must for new puppies!
Has Been Fun for Both of Us!

I was reticent to try this due to the cost, but my Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix is a food INHALER, and he's not deterred at all by the tricky bowls. He didn't know what to think of this mat, but quickly caught on. It truly lives up to its name, and we have a lot of fun watching him snuffling around for his food. His little sister even loves to try it out when he'll let her. He's an old guy, and it does seem to have 'perked' him up mentally. Unfortunately, he has pretty much already outsmarted it, and the 'shag' does not stay fluffy, but lays down flat, making it pretty easy for him. My recommendations: 1) give it a good shake before use to lift the 'shag'; 2) split feeding into two (or more) sessionsI was reticent to try this due to the cost, but my Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix is a food INHALER, and he's not deterred at all by the tricky bowls.

Kinda pricey but it works

Entertains my newly adopted ultra smart pooch, as well as paces his meal ingestion. One of my delightful cats used it as a litter box, so I can tell you it machine washes well :-( . It's small for the price, too, but does it's job.

My 5 month old bedlington terrier loves his snuffle mat more than any other item we have bought him! We put part of his breakfast and dinner in the mat for him to sniff, but for the remaining 23.5 hours a day, snuffle mat doubles as his favorite teething toy and favorite dog bed. We’ve only had it for a week, but Winston has been inseparable from the snuffle mat and it looks good as new. Can’t recommend this enough!
