Encourage your dog to use their nose as this is important for good emotional health. Snuffle mats are amazing for this, and they also keep your dog occupied for extended periods of time whilst they search for their favourite treats.

Licking mats are also great for enrichment and training. Licking is thought to have a calming effect, and when wet food or another favourite treat is smeared over the mat these are enjoyed by both cats and dogs. They are also a great training aid and distraction for grooming. There are even options with suction cups to use for your dog’s bath time.
