Mungo’s Snuffle Mats

The Snuffle Mat is a foraging feeder for dogs and is an excellent way to provide daily mental stimulation at meal times or to occupy your dog when you’re busy.

Sprinkle dry food on to the mat and ruffle the strips to shake it in. (Dehydrated meat works well for raw feeders.) Your dog uses their nose to search through the strips and find the food. Easy environmental enrichment!

Stimulate your dog’s brain, give an outlet for scent drive and encourage natural foraging. Increasing mental stimulation can reduce problem behaviours!

While geared toward dogs, Snuffle Mats are also great for cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds & other small animals.

Each Snuffle Mat has a rubber base, with fleece strips woven through the holes and carefully hand tied.

Mungo’s Snuffle Mats are available in three levels of difficulty. Level 1 is our beginner mat with shorter fleece strips to search through. Levels 2 and 3 have increasingly longer strips which mean a greater challenge for the dog. Smaller To Go Snuffle Mats are ideal for smaller pets and for travelling with dogs.

Made in Canada

Mungo’s Snuffle Mats are made by a professional dog trainer near Calgary, Alberta, and are available through Mungo’s Books for Dog People. Mungo’s Books was founded in 2006 and has been making toys since 2014.

Use & Care

  • Supervise during use and remove when thedog is done. These mats are NOT for chewing. Always examine mat for wear and remove any damaged strips. If the dog is destructive, use common sense.
  • Some dogs need a bit of training to use the mat as intended.Gently interrupt attempts to pick up the mat or pull at the strips and redirect the dog to seeking food. Most dogs are so busy using their noses to find the food that they do not resort to destructive habits.
  • Hand wash or machine wash fleece and lay out to dry. Rubber base is flammable, so the mat must be kept away from heat sources.
