Default Do you do this with your dogs Kong?

Hi all was just wondering if any of you freeze some of your dogs kibble in it's kong? It's a brilliant way of making a cheap chew toy that IS good for them. If any of you haven't tried it, seriously give it a go! just soak some of your dogs normal dry kibble (out of it's daily portion), stuff it in the kong (as much as you can get in) and throw it in the freezer. My dogs love them!!!

If Im working in he garden I'll put some of Jake's kibble into his kong and wedge a carrot into the end. He enjoys chucking the kong around to dislodge the kibble.

I think his favourite is peanut butter; but really Jake will eat anything that goes in his mouth. If I want to keep Jake occupied I wedge a piece of cheese in the kong and that is difficult to get out.

I prefer a kong to the 'treat ball' as I think the kong massages Jake's gums. He also has a Kong Sport and a Kong Float.

Yes, definitely, I do this all the time and it keeps them happy for ages. The same amount of kibble lasts approx 2 seconds or less fed from a bowl.

Even zoos use kongs now as enrichment for many animals.

Can't get my head around this why do you want to give your dog human food, (a dog is a different species from us humans) when there is plenty of dog food/treats out there to explore! Do some searching on Google . I have just typed in peanutbutter+dog and there a many different opinions! Do some research on these matters you have a Pc!!!

You asked about stuffing kongs with human food. I put a raw chicken wing into a kong. They usually come with 3 bones, I break off the wing tip & force the pointy end into the kong. It takes much longer for the dog to get it out than just kibble. But I'd wait until your pup is a little older b4 doing this.

Other things you can do is to make a kongsickle. Put the kong in an old mug, put the kibble in & then poor water over it. Then put it in the freezer.

For Tilba I just put in the kibble, & use either the dreaded peanut butter, vegemite, cottage cheese, or the like in the end to stop the kibble from falling out straight away. Some ppl use honey I haven't tried that yet.

You also asked about feeding & teeth cleaning. If the pup gets used to eating raw meaty bones at least 3-4 times per week, never with a kibble meal though, the bones will keep its teeth clean. Here's a link about raw feeding myths.

Well, learn something new everyday. I've always just put dry treats or kibble in mine and it doesn't take them long to get them out. I love the idea of putting in something mushy like peanut butter and freezing it.

Question Kong size?

I'd like to get one of these Kongs for Joe, what size would you recommend for him? I'm thinking either a medium or large. He's an English bull terrier cross labrador, aged just over 1(ish) and isn't a small dog! Lol!
