How to Use a Snuffle Mat

What's a snuffle mat? A snuffle mat is usually square and made with fleece material. Strips of fabric are woven through a sturdy backing and tied off so that there are “fingers” on the top side of the mat. The fingers make the snuffle mat an interactive feeding toy that challenges your dog (and slows him down) at mealtimes. 
You can put a whole meal in the snuffle mat by separating the fingers (the pieces of fabric) and dropping kibble between them. After the entire meal is hidden in the snuffle mat, usually feed your dog in his crate under supervision (never leave a dog alone with a snuffle mat). After the meal is eaten, remove the mat from the crate and store it until the next use.
