DIY Snuffle Mat

Something I love to do is make toys for Luna. Fleece is inexpensive and I’ve used it to make tugs, beds, and now an enrichment toy.

I saw this this DIY tutorial linked on Facebook, had some fleece on hand and thought I would give it a go.  The idea is that you sprinkle your dogs food onto it and they have to forage among the fleece to get it.

I used:
Strips of fleece 4-5cm wide and approx 20cm long
A rubber door mat from Bunnings (under $10)

The beauty with making things with fleece strips is if you cut a bit too wide, or too narrow, or a bit jagged… You’re barely going to know!
