Kodi and Shelby love freeze dried beef liver treats in their Kongs. They just love them. They don't like cheese or peanut butter, so the beef liver works really well for them. And if you pack it in tightly, it keeps them busy for a little while
I always did Peanut Butter & their kibble, until the went on special diets - so now I just use their kibble mixed with their special wet food & freeze it. I also stuff the steralized (cause thats all they can have) with their food & freeze them too. It takes them forever to work on them - good for when we are gone for a while
It's a brand of a chew toy. They have a lot of different shapes and sizes. Many of them come with a hole where you can add a treat or a substance that the dog tries to remove to keep them busy. If you go to Petsmart.com and type "Kong" into the search box, you'll see a wide selection.
There is a kong that looks like a flying saucer - it used to be Tulip's favorite toy . We would call it the red thing from outer space . She became so obsessed with it we had to throw it in the trash ..
I went through that wth Asta's muffin dog - his special friend . They stopped making the stuffed dogs and he only wanted muffin brand . I had a back up but they both got looking rather ratty and disheveled .
I would wash her and he would sit by the dryer waiting for her to come out !!
Our small, puppy Kong was never a hit with Ricky. He seems to like plush squeaky toys the most. I used to put peanut butter, tried cream cheese and even bits of dry treats, but he would let it sit there. I will try freezing stuff in it though. Thanks for that tip, Laurie!!
Jester loves the red kong ball~ With nothing in it! He is a nut, he picks it up and throws it around. A couple of times I have put milkbone buscuits in it, but he plays with it just plain.
I am not big on the peanut butter/cheese thing. Gives my dogs the runs!
We stick to kibble with an occasional milk bone or turkey jerky.
You can sure tell Maddie is one of yours, Kimberly! She could care less about the Kong. I put a treat in it, she got it out in 5 seconds, then has never looked at the Kong again. Now give her the giggling carrot toy, and she's in heaven!
