SNUFFLE MAT: A toy to keep your dog entertained: Do you have a snuffle mat for your dog? The snuffle mat consists of fleece strips tied on to a rubber mat with holes in it. The loose ends of the fleece are on top and provide the hiding spots for the treats A Snuffle Mat toy provides the dog with an opportunity to sniff and search for hidden treats. If you feed dry dog food, you can feed your dog all or part of his meal in a snuffle mat. Machine washable, you can make one at home, or purchase one on-line.
Just a couple of caveats: Don’t leave your dog unsupervised if s/he may destroy the mat. And remove it when your dog is finished eating.
To see how to use the snuffle mate, enjoy these videos of Wendy loading it and Dharma emptying it.
