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.

Is there a pro/con to getting the solid color mat versus the mat with colorful spots?

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 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.

Love this but…

Our doodle loves this mat so much! However, he has figured out that he can pick up the mat, shake it and make the food go flying, which is a fun game for him until I’m digging under the fridge to get the one piece of food that flew under there. Any suggestions for keeping it stationary would be welcome.

Exactly what I expected!

I wanted a snuffle mat so my dog can forage for her food. It's a smaller size intended for traveling, but I didn't want to get the bigger one. Make sure to look at the dimensions, so you get the one you're looking for. One note - I do prefer the fibers to be a little longer or something so the food gets a little more 'buried'. My dog is 50 lbs and eats the normal sized kibble. I let my friend test out the snuffle mat for his dog and his dog is tiny like 15 lbs and the tiny's dog's kibble gets buried more in this mat and has more of the intended effect I was looking for. I still like the mat for my 50 lb dog though!

Not impressed

Had high hopes but not impressed. I have to spend about 5-10 minutes burying each piece of kibble individually, even then, still not much of a challenge for my dog

A big hit in our house

My dog gets so excited when I take this out. I don't use it too often. I put hard food and some snacks into the mix. He's still foraging long after he's eaten everything. Fun for him.
