My pug absolutely loves this mat. I feed her meals to help slow her down when eating, but she has so much fun hunting for her food. Very entertaining for both the dog and human.
I have a ten year old Pomeranian that I rescued last August. Sadly he doesn't know how to play. I'm trying to introduce him to new games and stimulation. This was the best so far. I use a little bit of kibble and it makes snack time a game and stimulating. He gets super excited when I get the feeding mat out. Highly recommend.
My dog loves this toy! I got it as a distraction tool to use while I'm working from home (temporarily). My dog enjoys finding treats in this mat so much! He is not a speedy eater so we use it for playing/intelligence training. I love that it's washable and my dog loves it! I would recommend this to basically everyone with a dog.
Our dog trainer said that dogs love to forage, and that this mat would be good because he would have to work a bit to find his food. It slows down his eating and he seems to really enjoy the hunt.
My two beagles love this! PRO TIP: if you have a Furbo (the dog camera that tosses treats) place the mat where the treats typically land and it gives them an added challenge.
