Frequently asked questions

In a nutshell, enrichment is giving your pup low-risk and safe activities that are interesting to them by tapping into their natural tendencies and intrinsic behaviors. You can read more about it in this Dog Blog post where we go into more detail about the topic!

Snuffle Buddies engage multiple innate instincts in dogs including foraging and using their number one sense of smell to find food. Studies have shown that dogs enjoy their more food when they work for it, and with Snuffle Buddies, boy oh boy are they working for it! Snuffling the treat holders out to get to treats? Yum! Working to get to kibble out of empty Snuffle Buddies? Yes, please! Hiding treat holders around the house and having to hunt them down? What fun! There are multiple ways to use Snuffle Buddies so your pup can engage all their senses.

Enrichment is wonderful for dogs of all sizes and ages and we’ve found dogs of all ages enjoy their Snuffle Buddies, from puppies who are just tapping into their foraging instincts to senior dogs who’s playfulness is reignited by snuffling.

If your pup hasn’t yet had experience with enrichment, a couple simple options to test their interest are rolling food up in a towel or tossing food in some grass to see if they enjoy snuffling and looking for the food. If they have fun, they likely will enjoy other enrichment-type activities and toys, including our Snuffle Buddies!

Most chew toys and stuffed toys give dogs one approach for how to interact with them - destruction, whether it’s to get to squeakers or make the destruction more challenging. By giving your dog different ways of interacting with it, Snuffle Buddies open up a world of treat-filled possibilities.

If your pup has only seen plush toys as something to destroy, your pup might try their go-to approach when they first get ahold of their Snuffle Buddies. Introducing your dog to Snuffle Buddies in steps, as shown in our How to Use Our Toys page, will help your pup learn that Snuffle Buddies are something new and different. As needed, take the Snuffle Buddies away to show them that’s now how to engage with it.

We also recommend that our Snuffle Buddies be a special activity that gets put away when not in use. This helps extend its life and also adds extra excitement for your dog when they get to play with it!

Most toys only have one use, but not the Snuffle Buddies. It’s an endless source of enrichment activities for you and your pup. Here are just a few that you can use the Snuffle Buddies for:

Scent games
Fill the Snuffle Buddies and treat holders with treats, separately hide them around your home, and then watch your dog have a blast.

Fill the Snuffle Buddies with your pup's breakfast or dinner (dry food only) to make mealtime more exciting.

Up the snuffling ante by wrapping the Snuffle Buddies and treat holders separately in a towel or placing in a cardboard box that's safe to tear apart.

Side effects may include: senior dogs loving toys again, dogs no longer enjoying toys that don’t have treats in them, dogs constantly bringing their Snuffle Buddies and treat holders to you to fill up for them, dogs not eating their kibble unless it’s fed inside their Snuffle Buddies, dogs giving side eye and disapproving looks when you take their Snuffle Buddies away, dogs napping with their best Snuffle Buddies friends, and dogs sitting next to cabinets where Snuffle Buddies are stored until you take it out for them. All of these have occurred with our happy doggo customers!

Not to worry - we have a 30-day guarantee. Just contact us with your information and attach pictures of the destroyed Snuffle Buddies and we’ll give you either a full refund or a replacement, whichever you prefer.

Line up the velcro on the long sides of the panel to the velcro on the outside of the Snuffle Buddies toy and press firmly to attach. Then, tuck the short ends under to attach the velcro on the panel to the matching velcro on the underside of the fabric.

The current panel design may be difficult for some short-muzzle dogs, but not all. It really depends on a broad range of factors. However, we have other panel designs in the works so that dogs of all muzzle shapes and sizes can enjoy the Snuffle Buddies in all its glory. Please stay tuned! The treat holders are designed to be enjoyed by all dogs and can be used in various fun ways without the need of our Snuffle Buddies toy and can be purchased separately if desired.

The Snuffle Buddies toy is machine washable like all other plush toys. Simply toss it in the washing machine, and once it's done pop it in the dryer on normal or medium heat. Or, to err on the side of caution, let it air dry.

Due to limited plush toy manufacturing in the United States, our toy is made in China using all new materials. Our products meet the US regulations for children's plush toys.
