Trixie Strategy Sniffing Carpet (Snuffle Mat)
Introducing the Trixie Strategy Sniffing Carpet (snuffle mat). This Sniffing Carpet is suitable for both Dogs and Cats and is a firm favourite here at Pawster Headquarters. What the Sniffing Carpet may lack in size, it certainly makes up for in quality and plushness! This is no ordinary snuffle mat! It is comprised of two tassel lengths which are complimented by deep channels running along the length of the mat, which can be used to increase the challenge of locating treats.
Have a large breed dog? Why not stitch two together to make the snuffle mat a suitable size? This is easily done and because of the removal plastic tray, your larger snuffle mat is just as easy to clean as smaller mat.
Introducing the Trixie Strategy Sniffing Carpet (Snuffle Mat) to your Pet
As the first step, your pet has to understand that the Sniffing Carpet is a guarantee for a tasty surprise. First distribute a few treats on the carpet whilst your pet watches and then let your pet eat them (repeat a few times).
Have your dog or cat watch while you prepare the Sniffing Carpet. Let them see you place treats between the layers of the material so that they are still visible. Your pet should enjoy snuffling through the mat to locate and eat the treat. Once your pet is familiar with, and most importantly enjoying the concept of the mat, you can start to increase the difficulty by hiding the food or treats in the deep channels sewn into the mat. Sit back and listen to the sounds of your pet happily snuffling for treats.
If your pet is not successful in finding the treats after a few tries, go back to making the treats easier to locate.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION – PLEASE REMEMBER
Animal enrichment is not a mechanism to keep your pet occupied (when alone or to distract them whilst you do other things).
Please remember to introduce ALL new activities SLOWLY, especially if they expose your pet to new sounds, i.e. the sound of ripping Velcro, clicks or high pitched noises. Conditioning your pet to a toy (and it’s specific features) is crucial to ensure it becomes an enriching experience and not something they are wary or frightened of. As with all enrichment activities, your pet should be supervised when using this product.
Please check the product regularly for any damage, and replace whenever it becomes damaged or defective to avoid any harm coming to your pet. Please discard damaged products and do not let your dog attempt to swallow any pieces.
Unless specifically advertised as such, advertised products are not designed or intended for strong / aggressive chewers.
