Snuffle Ball Enrichment Toy (Large)
Calming foraging enrichment at home or out & about!
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!
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+
Please allow 2-5 working days for dispatch.
Please note, the dog pattern is a limited colour scheme. There are multiple breeds featured on the pattern, so hopefully you’ll get to see some cute faces but I can’t guarantee a particular breed being visible.
