PAW5 Wooly Snuffle Mat Giveaway

In addition to providing our dogs with the basics - food, water, shelter, and love - it's also necessary to provide them with enrichment. There are 6 defined categories of enrichment which we shared in an earlier post here. Enrichment might include walks, toys, games, and training.

Enrichment is a means to add mental and physical stimulation to your dog's life with puzzles, games, training, and socialization. Enrichment activities are meant to tap into your dog's natural canine instincts and behaviors.



I like to add enrichment to my dog's life is with puzzle feeders and games. Shiner loves food and I think it's a great way to get her senior brain working. 

One of my favorite dog enrichment items is the PAW5 Wooly Snuffle Mat. While it might look strange at first, it's actually quite awesome! Simply add some food or treats to the Wooly Snuffle Mat and watch as your dog snorts and sniffs to fish it out. 

The Wooly engages a dog's sense of smell. It's made to stimulate a dog’s natural foraging instincts by mimicking the hunt for food in grass and fields. Not only will your dog have a full belly afterwards, but they are using their brain! 




Benefits of PAW5 Wooly Snuffle Mat

  • Easy to use - just pour some food on top.
  • Good for any breed or size of dog. 
  • Easy to clean. 
  • Sustainably handmade with non-toxic and safe materials. 

This is one of my favorite enrichment toys for Shiner because it's easy for both of us to use. Some puzzle feeders are not Shiner's "thing" and so she refuses to use them or can't get much of the food out of them. She's pretty good at using her Wooly though. 

PAW5 is dedicated to providing enrichment for dogs through thoughtful product design and education. They take being a sustainable company very seriously as well and this is a big part of who the company is. Learn more about PAW5 on their website and be sure to check them out on Facebook too

  11. I would like to win the wooly mat because my dog Coco is just like Shiner. She doesn't like some of the other puzzles and can't get a lot of food out of them either. I think she would definitely like this better.
