About This Item


  • Slow feeder snuffle mat replaces your pal’s regular food bowl and extends the time it takes your pet to finish his meal.
  • Made with proprietary SoftSnout material that helps protect your pet from injuring her snout and gums.
  • Designed for even the roughest foragers with strong, durable anti-slide backing and triple-stitched edges.
  • Meadow bowls are designed to slow down eating, increase feeding motivation and provide mental stimulation—bright colors work to capture your pet’s attention, while shorter “trees” create easy-to-reach pockets to help your pal stay motivated.
  • Snuffle mat is washable for quick and easy clean up after mealtimes.

About Pet Parents Forager

The were meant to forage

If you don’t have a Forager, your best friend is missing out. Snuffle mats like Forager provide mental exercise and enrichment, and they can help slow down eating for healthier digestion. Help prevent choking, vomiting, bloat, destructive behaviors and more while encouraging your pup’s natural need to forage. Use Forager products as a food bowl replacement, for travel, for stimulation and for fun!

Pet-Safe Materials

Pet Parents’ proprietary SoftSnout material is super soft and non-abrasive on delicate noses, tongues and gums. A great alternative to plastic and other harsh materials, it is safe for your pet to use every day. A durable and breathable outer shell helps Forager retain its shape, while anti-slide backing helps keep Forager in place. All materials are easily washable so you can get out all the food residue for safety, too.

Designed by Pet Parents, for Pet Parents

Perfectly Sized

From Newfies to Yorkies and everyone in between, our snuffle mats can accommodate any sized furbaby. Our 12"x 18" mat was designed for smaller furbabies, and our 19" x 21" is a perfect snuffle mat for large dogs. Each Forager™ bowl is 9" and a perfect on-the-go slow feeder bowl for all breeds.

A Safer Way to Forage

Forager Mats and Bowls can roll or cinch up for easy storage or travel. You can tuck the Forager Bowl drawstring away into its side pocket or secure the Forager Mat strap under the mat for minimal distraction while your pup is foraging, too.

How Can Forager Help?

Brain Engagement

Pets use their noses to solve problems like we use our brains. Forager puzzles reward them with a full tummy!

Calming & Anti-Anxiety

By providing distraction and focus, Forager can help your pet de-stress and help relieve anxiety.

Feeding Motivation

If your pet is picky or uninterested in food, Forager can help motivate and entice him to finish meals.

Exercise Supplement

Whether it's time or the weather, sometimes going on a walk is hard. Forager™ helps spend mental & physical energy. 

Different Difficulty Levels

Forager Bowls and Mats offer different difficulty styles and sizes. The Meadow Ponds style is easiest, with colors that make food easy to see and meadows of shorter SoftSnout material to catch more food. The Meadow Natural style is intermediate, with colors that hide food better to mimic an outdoor foraging experience. For the most difficulty, choose the Forest style with no meadows or easy colors. The 12” x 18” mat is easy, while the 19” x 21” mat spreads the food out for a challenge.

Because we believe that pet parenting should be easy, we're here for you; whether it's through our products, services, or information, we want to do our part to help and be a resource to you–so your furbabies can live longer, healthier, & happier lives.

Great enrichment!

I bought this to help my 18 mo pitty mix slow down when eating and also give him some of enrichment for rainy days. It delivers on both! Super easy to fill - takes him a solid 20 minutes to finish and he’s ready for a nap afterwards. I throw it in the washer every week or two and air dry - so far it’s holding up really well.

cute & fun sniff time

my 15 lb mini schnaupin LOVES this mat. i put it out whenever i leave for work so he can stay busy and have the positive association of being fed when i leave. i get tiny kibble and hide it into all the crevices and he loves using his nose to search out where the treasure is. might be too small for bigger dogs though...

Good product

This product works as advertised. My dog enjoys it so much that he no longer wants to eat out of his bowl. It washes up easily and seems durable with two hungry snouts foraging for their kibble. I would have given it a 5 star rating but it is just a little too easy for my dogs to use. A slightly higher degree of difficulty would be nice.

My pup and I just do not get it I guess

This is not long enough to hind anything in it? Tiny pieces of puppy food just sit on the top? My 15 week old puppy picked off the food and then tipped it over to chew on the Velcro piece on the bottom. Had to take it away within minutes? Do not bother

Sniffs and snuffs

My dog lovessss this mat!! I still have to give him a bit of food in another bowl to take medication but he chooses to eat off this mat first every single time. It keeps him occupied longer and makes him eat much slower than with a regular slow feeder.

My dog loves it as a snuffle mat. One of my cats loves it as his favorite bed. (No mater what I do.)

My Shepherd/ Doberman loves this mat

Tucker gets excited to forage in his mat and goes back during transitions like just before walks, to forage more. It seems to activate his mind and help with anxiety and excitement.

Great quality

Great quality snuffle mat. We switched to this one from one of the mats with flat felt pieces made for pigs, and my dog loves it. The kibble gets lost in a great way and my dog who is small at 19 lbs likes to use it as a bed when she isn't snuffling. We got the larger size since she loves to snuffle.

We like it!

Bought the large mat for my larger dog and he loves it. My smaller dog tried his mat and liked it so bought the smaller one for her. They definitely enjoy "foraging" around for their food. My smaller dog is a fast eater and has a slow feeder bowl already. This mat is also slows her down.
