A Snuffle Ball is typically a ball composed of fabric scraps. The scraps are secured together tightly to create the perfect hiding spots for multiple treats or food. The dog is then challenged to sniff out and release the treats from the Snuffle Ball while rolling it around and or pulling out the fabric pieces.
