Snuffle items are an incredible mental stimulation tool for your pet. If your dog or cat inhales their kibble the fleece strips will slow down their eating and improve their digestion. Chow time turns into a fun game that stimulates your pet's brain and let's them use their nose to work through the feelies of the fleece and sniff out their kibble. Set your mat down on the floor (best on carpet so it won't slide around) and simply work your pet's kibble around and let it fall into the fleece strips! Honey Snuggles snuffle mats are washer and dryer safe!!!
