Peanut butter

Wow! I just gave Snowflake a kong filled with kibble and plugged with peanut butter. She turned her nose up at it! She loves her kong but I guess peanut butter isn't her thing. I plugged it with a little bit of cheese instead and she's very happy. What do your havs like in their puzzle toys?

Sophie and Rambo love peanut butter, but it is an acquired taste. Some new tastes
take a little time, just like people! Rambo would not touch it the first time he tasted it.
Same with carrots. Now they both beg for them.

Django ONLY eats his venison treats or no salt organic turkey stuffed all the way in. He hates peanut butter, not a fan of cheese. He's very picky about what goes in his kong.

Baker didn't like PB the first few times, but he goes nuts for it now! I put a bit of lamb lung at the bottom/tip of the Kong, fill it with his portioned kibble, and plug it with PB, then I freeze the entire thing.

I'm looking for new Kong recipes though, just to shake things up! I hear some pups like honey too? Haven't tried it with Baker yet though.

Timeblind, we are overdue for updated Baker pics!

For Kong recipes, I like getting a small can of tripe and freezing little chunks of it that I can push into a Kong and finish off with some kibble. They sure love that stinky, horrible stuff! I also like the dried Stella & Chewy's patties as they are quick and easy to break off a chunk of and stuff in a Kong. Archer works pretty hard on those ones. Plus, it is nutritious so I don't feel too guilty.

Are these small cans of tripe only available in pet stores? Baker's already getting tripe in his kibble (Petkind dry)... would it be tripe overload for him?!

The S&C patties... they're the dinner patties, right? And they're like the Orijen freeze dried patties? Baker goes nuts for the Orijen ones!

The big cans of tripe seem to be everywhere (and it is SO much to go through for a small dog it just isn't worth getting) but the only place I found the small cans were at Tisol on Grandview Highway and also at the Dogsmart training centre's store. I think with anything in your dog's diet moderation is the key. A bit of tripe now and again shouldn't be a problem even if it's in his food too. That's why I like freezing chunks of it, so I can just use it kind of randomly. It used to be puppy crack for Archer, and he still likes it but he isn't as crazy about it now. I really like to just spoon feed tripe at the vet or if we have to brush out some nasty matt or something. Just keeps his mind right off of it.

As for the patties, yes, they are freeze-dried dinner patties. I'm not sure how they compare to Orijen ones as I haven't looked at those...

Hope it's going well with Baker! I'd love to hear more about how his personality is developing and how his training is going. You wouldn't believe how many puppies we have had since the new year started, in the training class you were at. It was like 9 of them this morning. But I think it was nice that Baker got more one-on-one when there were only 2 or 3 dogs in the ones you were at. I guess it was the time of year!

I was just reviewing my thread of Archer and reflecting on how far we have come since we got him. I can't believe we will almost have had him for a year soon! I can barely remember not having a dog.

None of my dogs like peanut butter. and if they do happen to much on it, it has to be creamy, not crunchy.

They all love cheese though.

How come peanut butter is a good treat for dogs (although my vet recommends avoiding it for allergy possibilities) but peanuts themselves can be lethal?
