How to use enrichment toys
If your dog has never used an enrichment toy before, you'll need to show them how it works. This is a fun bonding experience for both dog and pawrent.
Start with just a few morsels of food and pop them in easy to find spots on the mat. Encourage your dog to "find it" and praise them when they do. Remove the mat when they've found all the food.
You can build from here, adding larger amounts of food, and even entire meals into the snuffle ball!
