Snuffle Mat Instructions
Welcome to your pet’s Snuffle Mat…
Before you begin, ensure all packaging and tags are removed and give your snuffle mat a good “fluff” up!
Time to Load...
As with all food puzzles and interactive feeding you will need some food!!
You can use a variety of foods in your pet’s snuffle mat anywhere from wet foods, raw meats, dry treats and kibble and for some with a healthy streak or dieting.... hidden veggies!! Using a mixture of harder treats/kibble AND soft food can help to maintain interest and Length of the snuffle time...
Time to Snuffle…
With the array of food you have chosen to use, sprinkle this throughout the mat.
**First time snufflers: make it super easy by just placing on top.
**Experienced snufflers: make the game more difficult by burying the treats in between the polar fleece and folding the fabric down and over.
Do not make it too hard as they may just give up! The game needs to be achievable and as they build confidence and value in the mat, your pet will become engaged and invested in finding the treats buried within the fabric.
Mix some ‘extra special' treats amongst the food being scattered to help build value in the mat and game of foraging!
