Reduce anxiety when leaving your pet

If you have an anxious dog who makes you feel guilty or becomes distressed or even destructive when you leave them at home alone, use a Snuffler (Snuffle Mat) to distract them and turn an otherwise stressful experience into a positive one.

We have a 12 year old Spoodle who can no longer run with our younger dog, particularly on hot days. This means we have to leave Sam behind a couple of days each week and he lets us know how disappointed he is as we leave…unless we give him a Snuffler. Now we break up a couple of rice cakes and scatter them throughout Sammy’s Snuffler and he happily snuffles away as we leave…I swear he almost looks forward to us heading out!
