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 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.
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.
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.

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.
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...
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.
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
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.
Perfect way to slow down my Labs' eating while also making them use noses to find ever last but of food. They love it!
My dog loves it as a snuffle mat. One of my cats loves it as his favorite bed. (No mater what I do.)
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 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.
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.
