Snuffle Ball Enrichment Toy (Large)

ideal for:

Calming foraging enrichment at home or out & about! 

Anyone else find trains relaxing? Me and Willow don’t often go on trains but whenever we do I always find myself enjoying it.

I always pack her snuffleball from @calmdoggames for longer journeys, just to give her something to do. I used it a lot when we practiced settle work earlier in her ad (assistance dog) training and it was a lifesaver. I don’t rely on it anymore to actually settle her, I just use it as a nice reward.

Snuffle balls are also great for everyday enrichment! I usually give Floyd one everyday as sniffing is calming to dogs and it helps him when he’s feeling anxious about something. ~ @roamingrotties

Snuffle balls are a wonderful way to enrich your dog’s day by providing an interesting sniffing opportunity and engaging them in a rewarding foraging activity.

How to play: Stuff dry food or treats between the folds for your dog to snuffle out.

Tip: Increase the novelty factor by using a variety of foods – My spaniel enjoys a mix of dry food and treats along with a few cubes of cumber and carrot and some shredded iceberg lettuce!

Enrichment Benefits:

Sniffing and foraging are natural dog behaviours. Providing our dogs with opportunities to express these behaviours can help them to feel calmer and more content. Snuffle balls give your dog more fulfilling sniffing opportunities while indoors, helping to keep them mentally stimulated between walks.

Being lightweight and ‘squashable’, they are handy for using out-and-about to encourage your dog to settle in more stimulating environments (cafes, pubs, public transport, visiting friends & family etc.).

As snuffle balls make for an easy enrichment activity, they can be useful for slow-feeding and building confidence in dogs that are new to puzzles and brain games.

Bonus tip: Slow-feeding? Rather than filling multiple pieces of food into each fold, place one piece of food per fold and have a few refill rounds. The snuffle ball is super quick to refill so this method extends the foraging time for your dog.

Size: X-Large ~ approx. 20cm+

    My boy Milo absolutely adores his snufflepuff. It the perfect outlet for his anxiety and helping him settle, especially outdoors, as it gives him something to focus on, keeping him calm and entertained for ages. It’s the perfect size and given the chance he would play with it all day. Couldn’t recommend this item more!

    My boy Buddy absolutely loves his snufflepuff – it’s still going strong after loads of use. I fill it to let him play by himself (supervised of course) or just put a few in & he plays with it with me on the sofa after a walk to calm & then have cuddles! Highly recommend – love this seller have loads of items from her
