How to use a snuffle ball

First time you use the Snuffle Ball

Put  3-5 really tasty treats on the top of the snuffle ball loosely in the fleece. Stay with your dog whilst they learn how to sniff out the treats. Encourage them to continuing sniffing by pointing out the treats on the ball to them.  This sniffing behaviour will help your dog enjoy continuing to sniff for treats.

When the dog has found all the treats put the Snuffle Ball away. Repeat this exercise twice a day for the first few days. This will associate the sniffing activity with the reward of finding the treats.

After this you can make the activity more rewarding by hiding the treats deeper into the ball.  You can then mix the really tasty treats with normal kibble and progress to hiding just kibble with the odd tasty treat in the future.

After about 3-4 sessions most dogs will have learnt to calmly sniff the whole ball searching for their rewards.

Energy zapper 

Did you know, 15 minutes of sniffing uses as many calories as an hours walk! This is why a Snuffle Ball makes a great activity for puppies of highly active dogs who still have boundless energy even after a walk.

The sniffing will also act as a calmer and directs excess energy into a different activity.

Training & Working with a Snuffle Ball

You can use the Snuffle Ball to help your dog learn some self-control. Ask your dog to ‘sit’ whilst you by prepare the mat in front go them. You can then give them a release command, such as ‘okay’ when you want them to start sniffing. You can also use the ‘Leave it’ command when you put the treats on the ball , before giving the release command

Slowing down fast eaters

Mealtimes for dogs can be boring. They often get fed once a day, from a bowl, where they can just gulp down one of their favourite things, food. Or they may just ignore it and hardly eat at all, because it is just plain boring. A Snuffle Ball can change all this. Once you have taught your dog to sniff for treats you can then start adding more kibble and transition it to replace their bowl at mealtimes. Split your dog’s meal into two sessions to extend the activity further.

Supervision

As with all pet products we recommend that you supervise your pet at all times and remove the item if it becomes damaged.

Washing your Snuffle Ball

The Snuffle Ball is machine washable at 30 degrees. We recommend that you put in a couple of small hand towels to balance out your load and use only a gentle spin to get rid of excess water.
