Boredom Busters- Snuffle Mats Part 2

What treats can I use to put in the snuffle mat?

You can use your dog’s meal, instead of feeding kibble in a food bowl to make it interesting and use the snuffle mat. You can also use any treats available at your local vet or pet store.

 

How to introduce a snuffle mat?

 

  • Firstly, Put the snuffle mat on the floor and let your dog watch you drop some treats in and then use a word like search or find.
  • The moment when your dog has an idea of the snuffle mat, you can start by hiding treats in it and make it more challenging for your dog to get the treats out.

Always remember to never leave your dog alone with the snuffle mat he/she must always be supervised.
