How To Use

Sniffing Ball can be used with your dog’s normal dry food or with different dry treats, fruit and vegetables. Hide food in the mats and balls for your dog to sniff out and re-fill for longer engagement.

Using different types of food varies the challenge as your dog searches for the different smells. Using the different toys provides varied enrichment and levels of difficulty. You can spread out a selection of sniffing activities around a room or in the garden, to offer your dog choice and variety. Giving choice is fantastic enrichment, particularly if used with a variety of food too.

The range can be hand washed. Do not tumble dry.

Our range of canine enrichment toys and snuffle mats are a great way to promote positive behaviour, encourage calmness and engage your dog in a quiet activity.


Due to the natural chewing and investigative behaviour of dogs, we don’t advise unsupervised use for safety reasons.

We recommend your dog is supervised at all times whilst using their sniffing activity toy, they are not chew toys. Whilst every care has been taken in manufacture, the sniffing range is not indestructible. Frustration may occur with some dogs, who may need assistance to learn how to extract food without damaging the mat or ball. Remove access once your dog has naturally finished.

Our sniffing range is designed for organised enrichment. As with any activity, dogs may need training to take part safely and appropriately. Sniffing activities should be beneficial to the dog and owner/carer support may be needed to ensure the activity is a positive experience.

Please provide fresh dinking water at all times.
