Raw diet - what to stuff a Kong with for puppy?

Five days till I bring my lil' Lexi home! the breeder is feeding her a raw diet (with puréed pumpkin and omegas at one meal). I'm going to keep her on this regime. So I'm wondering what can I put in a Kong to keep her busy when I have to run errands and what not? I read on an earlier post that peanut butter is probably not a good idea till pup is older. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I used spiral shaped bully sticks. I had a camera set up so I could check on her because I was working part time. Most of the time she was asleep in her crate. I had forgotten how much puppies actualky sleep!

Thanks for your reply That's so good to hear--that's what I'm most nervous about--leaving her so I can go and do stuff I need to do! And they're safe for 8-week old puppies? (Sorry--not sure how old your puppy was when you got her)

She was 10 weeks. I also had deer antler but breeder told me they could chip teeth in small dogs so I took it away.

There's nothing wrong with using a high-grade kibble in a kong, as "busy food", even if her main diet is raw.
