DIY Dog Snuffle Mat FREE Tutorial
When it comes to raising a happy and healthy dog, most pet parents know physical exercise is essential. But, did you know mental stimulation is just as important? Like people, dogs get bored. And do you know what happens when a dog gets bored? Yup! They find creative ways to amuse themselves.
A snuffle mat is a popular nose work, brain game. It consists of fleece fabric strips tied onto a sturdy backing. You hide dog treats inside the fleece — behind the many folds and even deep inside where the fleece meets the backing — for your dog to sniff out, find, and then eat.
What you'll need:
- Base – rubber sink mat or cardboard box
- Mini screwdriver, skewer stick, or capped pen (optional) – To help easily push the fabric through the base.
