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.

About Pet Parents Forager

They 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.

Questions & Answers

5 Customer Questions

Is there a pro/con to getting the solid color mat versus the mat with colorful spots?
Answer by ChewyNov 29, 2022
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 pet stay motivated.

What kind of fabric is this made of? Does it contain plastic?
Answer by ChewyNov 16, 2023
This mat is made of proprietary SoftSnout™ material.

The description mentions it's "washable" - great! Does it go in the washing machine?
Answer by ChewyJul 07, 2023
To wash; prep the mat by securing the included strap to the back of the Forager Mat. Gentle wash with cold water, (avoid using bleach or fabric softer). The mat may be Machine dried on Gentle, (for a longer lifespan, hang dry or dry flat).

A game changer

We have two active Vizslas who don't get as much exercise now that I have gone back to work. One was licking a spot on his leg raw because he was anxious and bored. Our vet recommended a few things and one was a snuffle mat for feeding. Well, we ordered one and it was a total game changer. So much so that we ordered a second for our other dog. They are calmer now and the obsessive licking has stopped. The LOVE their mats. Such great quality.

LOVE this product!

My puppy was inhaling his food in seconds. We started using a Maze bowl but were looking for an additional way to feed him meals that would both slow him down and be good stimulation for him. This mat works great. I thought he would tear it apart but he hasn't. I do put it away when he's done eating. It also washes well.

My rescue poodle loves this mat!

The 11 year old mini poodle I just adopted loves to forage in the grass, so I got this mat to see if she would like working for her dinner. She loves it! But she still carries the kibble she finds onto the expensive area rug and eats it there. Too funny.

Dogs love them!

My three large dogs love these mats. Turned a typical twenty second choking and anxious meal time to twenty five minutes of wagging tails and entertained pups. Wish I had found these sooner. Easily fits about two cups of food on it, and even Cody’s big ol snout can find the food in the mat. 10/10 would recommend.

Snufflemat Win

I bought this mat for our 7 month old lab mix who inhales her food and treats without even tasting them. She Loves snuffling through the mat for food and snacks and surprisingly our 10 year old husky mix does too! The carpet strands are plenty long enough to hide some kibble and training treats. The back of the mat has a “sticky” rubberized texture that holds it in place - even with both dogs foraging.

must have for fast eaters

Have a puppy that eats entire meal in about 5 seconds!!! Introduced this product and it is perfect for slowing down your pet. She really enjoys the search for each nugget! Highly recommend and can throw it in the washer!

Very Small

Don't make the same mistake I did, check the dimensions. This is incredibly small, even the large size is under 2 feet. It is very soft though and seems to be well made. It's not what I was looking for but my dog seems to like it.

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.
