Possibly the best Snuffle toy around
THE SNUFFLE BALL WITH HIDDEN MAGIC INSIDE
This Snuffle Ball is seriously different from others on the market! It will fit a whole meal while you can easily fill it in one go with a funnel. See for yourself:
How awesome is that!? And even though the filling is so user-friendly, the pup's playtime is no shorter for it.
Fill the Snuffle Ball up with your pup's favourite food or treats, toss the ball and let them go wild. Snuffle Balls are the perfect activity to enrich your dog both mentally and physically. Because sniffing activates the part of their brain responsible for releasing dopamine, this toy makes your dog happy while reducing boredom and stress. Fun times!
- The rubber ball inside is 9cmØ and has plenty of holes to release the food upon tossing.
When trialling the prototype with Hank, we were sure he'd wreck it pretty quickly, but after pulling at the pieces a couple of times he noticed that wasn't the best strategy to get the treats out and went to tossing, pushing and snuffling. Took him 12 minutes to empty the small cup which is pretty long for him for a non-frozen toy. Consider us impressed!
I think my dogs need to mature a bit because they spend more time ripping at the fleece rather than trying to figure out how to get the food out. They have 2 maze balls that they love to have with morning feeding.
If it is too challenging for them now, you could consider removing some strips around one of the holes to make it easier. You can always attach them on later again.
We have had a snuffle ball for a few months now, and Lucy the Labrador (now 6 months old) loves rolling it around the lounge to eat part of her dinner. I took some strips off it in a couple of strategic places, so some holes had two empty gaps on them, and this made stuffing it super easy (I can quickly jam 1/4 cup royal canin maxi puppy biscuits in, feed them in one by one) and it means she is regularly having her food drop out but not too fast. When it gets a bit gross I just chuck it in a laundry bag and put it through the washing machine and hang it on the line to dry and it’s good to go again. She does also like to chew on it so it’s kept out of reach when not in use.
Naw, sounds like you guys are getting so much joy out of the Snuffle Ball, that's just awesome, thanks so much for sharing! <3
Not good for my dog (labraspoodle), he loves a puzzle toy but couldn’t get any of the food out no matter how much he tossed it around so resorted to shredding all the polar fleece strips.
It is quite challenging indeed. Sorry it was a bit too hard for your pooch. I'd recommend removing some strips to give the holes more room to release the food. You could always keep them and add them in once your pup got the hang of it. Alternatively check if you may want to use smaller treat/kibble pieces to make it easier. We are currently looking at adding an easier version of this ball, so great feedback!
Rosie is more Lurcher than any other breed. She loves cloth toys so burying her nose in the knots and tossing it in the ear to spill out the treats is great fun. She loves toys and playing with them reduces the carnage on my cushions.
Ha, we'd love to see a video of beautiful Rosie playing with the Snuffle Ball, sounds awesome! <3
