Snuffle mats can be made very easily and keep dogs occupied using their nose to find either small treats or kibble – especially useful when the weather is wet – they are also easily portable and washable.

You will need:
A fleecy throw or two (I found some in Wilko)
A Rubber mat – you can use an outdoor mat or a sink drainer
Plus some patience and a good film on tv!
Cut the fleece into long strips about 2 inches wide and varying in length from between 7 – 10 inches
Knot the strips through each hole of the mat.
Keep going and either make up a pattern or keep the colours random – the dogs won’t mind!
