Hi everyone! I hope you're all having a fantastic week! Today I'm really excited to share a new product with you! You guys all know how much I like promoting puzzle toys and enrichment for dogs and I was super excited when PAW5 asked me to test out and review their newest product! The PAW5 Wooly is their "official" snuffle mat! What is a snuffle mat you ask? Read on to find out!
The PAW5 Wooly is the newest way to provide environmental enrichment for your dog. It engages your dog's powerful sense of smell as they snuffle, snort and sniff their way through dinner! The wooly combines their natural foraging instincts with their dinner to keep their minds busy and entertained by using their most powerful tool: their nose!
- Encourages natural foraging skills
- Simply Challenging: Easy-to-fill and fun-to-use design
- Fully machine washable
- Handwoven from pre-consumer fabrics
- Perfect for any breed, any age, any size
- Sustainably handmade from upcycled materials
- Durable construction
A dog's greatest gift is their nose - it's thousands of times more powerful than our own, because dogs evolved as natural foragers - finding morsels of food among grass, bushes, and brush. Engaging your dog in this natural scent-driven scavenger hunt during mealtime makes them happier, healthier, and enriches their day! PAW5 products are designed exclusively for dogs and their unique natural needs.
Zoe and Phoenix have both been having a fantastic time using the PAW5 wooly for their mealtimes and I've also been using it for training! It's very easy to drop a few treats in the Wooly and then as they finish the last treat, I recall them away from it. As they get really good at this, I will start to call them away before they are finished with the food. It's a simple and easy technique to get some recall practice in, especially on rainy days! I was taught this technique by my mentor at work but Kikopup also has a video on it and you can find that here: Kikopup: Come When Called
When the PAW5 Wooly is not in use for the dogs, I store it in it's original shipping box and it doubles as an awesome cat bed! My cats have actually been fighting over who gets to use it as a bed. This was not PAW5's intended use for this thing but it's pretty funny and I figured you guys would get a laugh out of this! I sure did! All the animals at my house are enjoying the PAW5 Wooly in some way or another. It's a fantastic way to give dogs enrichment and a great training tool as well. I would recommend checking the PAW5 Wooly out!
I would like to offer a chance for one of our readers to win a PAW5 Wooly. The giveaway is open to US residents age 18 or older. The giveaway will run through the next week and I will contact the randomly selected winner by email. See the widget for the full terms. Good luck!
