How do you stuff YOUR Kong?

What is your favorite thing to stuff the Kong toys with? Need ideas please. I use cheese or peanut butter. The treats I have just fall straight out. Right now I'm trying to figure out what to put in a Kong squeaky ball that just has a straight hole thru it.

I just do the cheese or peanut butter thing too.. but i always freeze it. I'm interested to see what others do.

Gabby doesnt always like the kong...as shes gotten older I find she sometimes just leaves it, but maybe if I put different treats in it she'd go back to it - I'll keep watching this thread for ideas.

However, she LOVES LOVES LOVES her treat ball and will not stop until everything is out of it, so we stick to using that, never fails. It can keep her busy for a looong time.

Lucile - here are just a few of the Kong products. You stuff them w/treats for the dogs.

I never got past just filling it with his own regular kibble and dabbing/sealing the top of it with cream cheese. He absolutely refuses to eat anything or touch treats/kong if I'm not there with him, so it sort of defeated the purpose of keeping him occupied while I do other things.

I use the balls too. You put the treats inside and the dogs have to roll the ball to get the treats out. I have several different balls and puzzles for my guys. Here are a couple of the ones I have. I get them on Amazon.

I also hide treats in a room and let the pups find them. They love this game!

this is the Treat Ball that i have. I have the small size, but will be getting the medium size ... the small is great but it gets stuck underneath the sofa etc. I put treats in it, and she rolls it around to get them out. I usually put 3 different types of treats in it (cheerios, charlee bears and 1 other treat). I got mine at Walmart.

She had no interest in the ball until she was about 6-7 months old. Now, it's by far her favourite. It keeps her busy and nothing will distract her from it, shes on a mission when she gets the ball, lol.

Brody loves his treat ball. I also have a Nina Ottosson twister puzzle toy that he gets his dinner out of. He really likes that too.
