Snuffle Box

The snuffle box is an absolute favourite of mine and so easy to make.  It involves a box, some scrunched up newspaper and some kibble (dog biscuits) or small treats.  Make sure that the edge of the box isn’t so high that the dog will damage his throat.  As you can see, Celyn preferred to get inside hers.  My first attempt was with 2 boxes that kitchen bins came in.  Celyn could even shut the top of the box so she could eat inside in peace!  The boxes lasted over a month when Dyfri’s started to rip, so I upgraded to 2 plastic boxes.

30% of a dog’s brain is used for sniffing, so snuffling is a very enriching exercise for them.
