Monday Mischief: Let’s Snuffle

30 Jan

Do you have a snuffle? They are mats that are perfect for hiding treats in so we have to work at finding them.

Jolie is absolutely obsessed with nose work; Charles, not so much.

Snuffling is a brain game. This is like dog scent hide-and-seek. Since dogs have millions (or more) scent receptors than we do, this is a great way to activate that part of their brain. According to The Dog People at, the scent-processing part of a dog’s brain is about 40 times larger than in humans, making it about 1/8th of a dog’s total brain space.

Snuffle mats have a lot of benefits:

  • Slow down a fast eater
  • Encourage reluctant eaters
  • Help anxious or bored dogs burn energy and distract them
  • Help with cognitive decline/dementia

Do you want to learn more about using a snuffle mat? Check out this info from RUFFLE SNUFFLE, they say they are the original.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    Charles is not feeling it! LOL! Sometimes when I won’t eat my kibbles from my bowl, Mom puts them into my treat puzzles and then they taste better…. Go figure.

    Love and licks,
