Puffle Digging (aka Treasure!) is a feature that lets puffles dig for coins and rare items all around the island while being walked. Each puffle digs differently, and each time you dig, you will receive a different amount of coins. Some stamps are also available by completing certain tasks.

Once a puffle is fed with its favorite food, all the puffle's stats will be full.
One of the glitches
Sometimes you get a notification, but it'll say w.notification.treasure instead of _______ has found __ coins! This could be a result of the game trying to read files.
On occasion, your puffle disappears, but it can be seen in your player card. To fix this, simply go to another room.
From time to time, after you stop digging, your puffle will keep digging. It will stop if you move.
Occasionally, when your puffle digs, it will also be by your side, creating a sort of puffle pile.
At times, when your puffle digs up something, a thought bubble appears indicating that the puffle hasn't found anything.
Since the Puffle Party 2014, you can get your puffle to do a double dig in one spot. Just waddle to a spot until your Puffle finds something, wait until it's finished digging, then click on the dig command via Puffle Tricks.
Get your oldest puffle and dig. It has been proven that it will get rare items or lots of coins.
The happier your puffle is, the more coins or rare items you will get, so make sure your puffles are cared for.
The color of the outline of chests are different. One is gold and the other one is silver. Here's what they mean:
The gold outlines means a recent item from 2008–Present is in there.
The silver outlines means that a rare item from 2005-2008 or Puffle food is in there.
Chests could also appear in different colors. Here's what they mean:
A Golden Treasure chest means golden items are inside. These will be dug exclusively by Gold Puffles, as shown on the membership page.
A Treasure chest covered with bones means it has been dug up exclusively by a Dinosaur Puffle.
The info about Puffle Digging was first released on a post What's New Blog here.
There are stamps for puffle digging.
Puffles have been documented digging up amounts of coins exceeding 1000.
 Ever since August 15, 2013, puffles had exclamation point over their heads before they dug treasure.
If a member digs up an item with the membership badge next to it, that item will be locked in the inventory after the players membership expires. This applies to most Clothes and all Furniture items.
If a member digs up an item without the badge, they will be able to wear it after their membership expires like any other non-member item.
If a non-member digs up treasure, it will always be coins.
If a penguin walks a Gold Puffle, the player gets a chance to dig up a golden item.
This was an ability harnessed by Herbert during Operation: Puffle to dig up coins for his hot sauce machine.
As of April 17, 2014, puffles can now dig for Treasure in igloos, with the Puffle Tricks.
You can only dig once every 2 minutes without Puffle Tricks.
