I am glad I purchased this mat and would recommend. There are lots of different options to hide the food with some people easy and some difficult. I will say you should monitor you dog while using as the felt material is it made with can be ripped.
This mat provides many places for our pupper to explore and seek out treats. We’ve only had him for a week and he’s only used the mat twice so far (rotating through different brain games and snuffle mat styles), so I’m not sure yet how it’ll hold up in the wash, though it appears to be well made and should be able to handle it.
My only “complaint” is that it ends up getting folded over on itself pretty easily. I’m not sure I want a bunch of suction cups to keep it in place (would need to be easily removed for washing and they never work as well as they should anyway, especially after a while) and a weighted mat would probably have washing issues . . . Not sure what the best way to solve that is, besides sitting there the whole time holding it down (defeats the purpose of using it as entertainment while you’re gone) . . . The non-skid dots on the backside do keep it from sliding everywhere, it just gets folded over easily, at least by my doggo. I’d give it 4.5-4.8 stars.
My dog would eat treats every minute she loves this because she has to work for it!
My pup loves it!
