The Ruffle Snuffle mat is an enrichment activity designed to use your dogs greatest sense, their nose. The action of sniffing out a treat is hugely satisfying and self-rewarding for your dog ( just like barking, but not as noisy!).
Dogs need exercise whatever the weather, but not all dogs love going out in the snow. So how can you help them learn to enjoy…
Here’s my fun step by step guide to indoor nosework training with your dog. Do let me know how you get on! Did you know – 15 minutes of hard sniffing work is as good as an hours walk for your dog?
Getting your dog to bark less will take time, work, practice and consistency. It won’t happen overnight but one of the first things you can try is to actually teach your dog to bark on cue. This might sound weird, but it’s actually a brilliant way to reduce barking and get your dog to stop barking when you ask!
