About This Item


  • The Forager Bowl is a snuffle mat slow feeder that slows down the time it takes your dog to eat, reducing bloat and tummy aches.
  • Made with proprietary SoftSnout material that helps protect your pup 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 pup’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.

Brilliant solution to fast eater

My husky eats so fast she swallows a 1/2 cup of food whole and often gets sick. This forager bowl slows her down and it takes several minutes to finish her meal. She is excited to eat and hunts for every last morsel.

Very good quality!

This product is very well made with attention to every detail. My cats took to it right away and I enjoyed watching them forage for the treats. Now that they are used to it, I put some of their kibble in it to slow down their eating and give them some enrichment without additional calories.

Works like a charm!

I have a massively fast eater, and puzzle toys were a hassle and slow bowls didn’t slow her down. I was worried because she tends to chew up blankets and toys, but this thing is indestructible AND works to make her eat slowly so she doesn’t puke. No brainer!

Great snuffle mat for a senior dog!

I purchased this snuffle mat in the brown/green color scheme for my senior dog. I didn't think she'd like it very much since she generally doesn't enjoy working for her food, but she loves this mat! I tuck dehydrated treats like lung, liver, and tripe the mat and she usually gets through it in five minutes or less. The fact that the mat is machine washable is a big plus.

Forget snuffle

My fur baby wasn’t sure what to make of this I put the good in there but he wouldn’t use it so I had to go back to his regular bowl he will use it as a chew toy I do put treats in it and he will find them

I love this!

I love to snuffle and search for my food, so this is great! Superfun! I get 10 small treats at a time, randomly spaced and buried, and it takes me at least 3 min to find them all. I'm very enthusiastic and thorough!

A bit of a challenge

Searching for every last kibble takes a few minutes instead of a 30 second race to clean a maze bowl. My Miniature Schnauzers occasionally miss one kibble but this bowl helps them take more time to finish a meal. Don't know that they chew each kibble or inhale them's more time required. It seems like it helps. And they haven't taken to chewing up the bowls.

Hmmm - just OK

This is high quality - my puppy liked it the first meal - but did not really care afterwards - maybe he is not old enough. He is also more of a chewer right now, so this is just not his style right now. I will try it again in a few weeks - he is only 3 months. He does love to pull it around, so I have not given up on it.

Good for cats too

I bought this for my cat (who has a habit of eating kibble so fast that she immediately throws it back up). Works great to slow her down and keep her engaged with a little foraging puzzle!

Game Changer

My Aussie pup gets every meal in this mat now. In regular bowls, he inhales his food so fast that it makes him sick and will immediately run outside to throw it up. Now he literally jumps for joy when I fill up his mat. Meal time went from 15 seconds to about 5 minutes. And no more puking!
