The Snuffle Rug is a handmade mat, made out of a rubber base, tied with multi-color fleece strips. You sprinkle kibble or other smaller treats, and your dog then has to root around in the fabric to snuffle out his food.
These mats are a geat way to feed your dog the dried food part of his meals, as it stops him from wolfing it down in seconds, which as we all know isn’t good for our furry friends. In addition to slowing down eating, just the act of sniffing and snuffling around actually calms and soothes your dog.
When our CEO’s beagle has a mental moment (known as FRAPping or the zoomies) we just sprinkle dried parmesan into the mat, to give him something to sniff out, engage his brain and calm down. He gets a very small amount of food for a lot of calming work.
These mats are approx 30cm by 30cm, so are suitable for a small area such as in your office, if you’re lucky enough to work in a dog-friendly office.
They are suitable for cleaning in the washing machine at 30 degrees.
