Our Snuffle & Seek mat is a great enrichment item for any dog.
There is lots of evidence showing that our dogs actually prefer to work for their food, not just have it delivered to them in a bowl. Our Snuffle & Seek mat is a great low arousal and easy introduction into the art of searching out their food. Not all dogs naturally have the patience to search for their food, and not all dogs have the skills, but searching and working for their food is a fabulous skill to develop, but it also activates their SEEKING system, which is vital for providing a balanced lifestyle for your dog and avoiding unwanted behaviours.
Each mat is handmade with soft fleece material with a strong rubber base, making it a much more durable option than other options available. These mats are also designed to be machine washable on a cold cycle, making keeping them clean very easy.
You can keep it simple to begin with and place the food on top, then slowly increase the difficulty and bury the food within the fleece.
Size & Price:
Small - 8 inches x 8 inches - £20
Medium - 10 inches x 10 inches - £25

Care: Machine wash on cold cycle. Gentle cycle recommended, or wash inside a delicates bag or a pillow case.
This is not intended as a chew toy. Dogs should be supervised at all times and the product put out of reach once finished. If any parts break off, discard immediately to avoid life threatening injury.

A little about the humans behind The Mindful Pet Owner.
As most of these stories go, mine begins with a deep passion for all things animals. A passion that has seen me rescue a long list of animals and hand rear orphaned wildlife; taken me to four continents volunteering with lions, elephants, chimpanzees, kangaroos, the list goes on; and pushed me through vet school and into an extremely rewarding career as a small animal veterinary surgeon for over a decade. I was lucky enough to marry a man who shares my passion for animals, and what were my dreams has become our dreams.
Which brings us to the present...
Now it is time for our passion for animals to take us on our next adventure, for us to share our knowledge and experiences with people so they can become the best versions of themselves - basically to train the humans to be the owners their pets deserve.
Every human has the ability to be a mindful pet owner, and we are here to help each of you achieve that goal. Whether through education - puppy classes and dog training, behaviour consultations and pet first aid courses; sharing our mistakes and achievements so you know you aren't alone with your struggles; or through providing you with high quality enrichment items for your dog. We can help you achieve your goal of having an amazing and fulfilling relationship with your dog.
Are you ready to take that first step?
