Default Kong fillings...

Anyone use a Kong or alternative?

If so, what do you stuff yours with?

I put a small amount of peanut butter in Poppy's last night, she was at it for ages! lol

I use peanut butter too.
Sometimes I put chicken livers in the blender and mix in peanut butter.
But I don't use kongs, I use marrow bones. Keeps them busy for a long time!

For Maddie I can use anything. Peanut butter, tuna, carrots or cheese. But for Myka I'll fill it with kibble then top it with some EVO canned and pop it in the freezer for a bit.

Peanut butter and a bit of mashed banana in the freezer. Don't overdo the banana though.

Kongs are great cheese, peanut butter freeze over night and walla a great chew. I have receipts on a thread last year if you can look back, it had many goodies to make or fill. I must try and find it. Even yogurt, wouldn't it freeze, a mess thawing though.?

What about some nice FREE kong recipes
Kong Dog Toys are widely used and recommended for therapy and prevention of under-stimulation, boredom, separation anxiety and other behavior problems. Following are some simple ways Kongs can be utilized to promote good behavior in your dog.

It is important for dogs to succeed at their "work". Make it easy to remove the kong stuffing at first.

AS THEY BECOME MORE EXPERIENCED, YOU MAY WANT TO MAKE THEIR JOB MORE CHALLENGING - HERE'S HOW:

1. Pack stuffing tighter.
2. Wedge biscuits inside the cavity using the inside rim of the opening to secure them.
3. FREEZE IT! Very Popular! Try various combinations of canned food, gravy, noodles, rice and mashed potatoes mixed with food nuggets and freeze. KONGSICLES are a favorite with many hot dogs! Put a dab of peanut butter in the small end of the Kong to plug it. Turn it upside down in a cup. Fill it full of water, chicken broth or fruit juice and freeze. Cool doggies! Kongsicles are recommended for outdoor use.
4. CHEESE IT! Mix cheese pieces or cheese spread with food nuggets and microwave until cheese melts. Let it cool to a safe temperature. NOTE - Use a cup to contain the Kong when freezing or microwaving.
KONG STUFFING RECIPES
As you create recipes, be sensitive to your dog's tummy as you experiment.

Following are recipes created by veterinarians, dog trainers and dog lovers worldwide.

- BANANA RAMA: 1 fresh banana 2 tbs wheat germ 1 tbs plain yogurt (can use your pet's favorite flavor as well) Kong Toy that best fits your pet's chewing temperament In a bowl, mash up banana. Then, add wheat germ and yogurt. Mash all ingredients together and use spoon to add to Kong. Freeze for 4 hours. Makes 1 serving for Medium Kong. Double for every Kong Size that is bigger.

- CHEESY DENTAL KONG DELIGHT: 3 slices of your pet's favorite cheese Dental Kong Toy A very simple and creative way to make any pet drool in delight. Just place the 3 slices of cheese directly onto the grooves of your pet's Dental Kong (if model has rope - make sure cheese does not get onto it). Melt in microwave for 20 to 30 seconds. Give to pet after it cools.

- PHILLY STEAK: steak scraps 1 ounce cream cheese appropriate Kong Toy Place small scraps of the steak inside Kong toy. Spread cream cheese in large hole to hold scraps.

- FRUIT SALAD: apple and carrot chunks 1/4th of a banana appropriate Kong Toy Place apples and carrots in Kong Toy. Mush the banana in large hole to hold fruit in place. You can include other fruits and veggies: orange slices peach and/or nectarine chunks celery sticks broccoli and/or cauliflower tomato and black olive mixture.

- VEGGIE KONG OMELET: 1 egg your choice of shredded cheese any vegetables that your pet may like appropriate Kong Toy Scramble egg and fold in vegetables. Put into Kong toy. Sprinkle some cheese over the top and microwave for about 20 seconds. Cool thoroughly before giving to dog.

- MAC 'N CHEESE: Leftover macaroni and cheese small cube of Velveeta appropriate Kong Toy Melt Velveeta in microwave until gooey. Add mac 'n cheese to Kong Toy. Pour heated Velveeta into Kong. Make sure it has cooled before giving to your pet.

[FONT='Comic Sans MS', Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]What are you feeding your pets? See what mine get.[/font]
FAMOUS RECIPES- AUNT JEANNIE'S ARCHEOLOGY KONG (for advanced dogs) LAYER ONE (deepest): roasted, unsalted cashews freeze dried liver bits LAYER TWO: dog kibble, cookies or liver biscotti Cheerios sugar-free, salt-free peanut butter dried banana chips, apples and apricots LAYER THREE: carrot sticks
turkey or leftover ravioli or tortellini Kong Toy (the larger the better!) Pack as tightly as possible. The last item inserted should be an apricot or piece of ravioli, presenting a smooth "finish" under the main opening. LIGHT VERSION: substitute crumbled rice cakes for cashews, Caesar croutons for freeze-dried liver, fat free cream cheese for peanut butter.
- by Jean Donaldson

- KONG ON A ROPE: [size=2]Dry dog kibble appropriate Kong Toy Rope Take the rope, pull it through the Kong Toy and knot it. Hang this upside down from a tree, deck or post. The small hole should be facing the ground. Take the kibble and fill the Kong Toy. Make the toy hang just low enough that it is out of your dog's reach. The dog will spend hours trying to retrieve the kibble from the Kong Toy. At the end of the day, take the remaining kibble and give to your pet as a reward. This is advanced work for your dog. - by
