    Kongs

    Hello everyone I would like to get Louie a Kong and I was wondering what everyone recommends as far as stuffing it? I would love something that might keep him occupied and yet is healthy for him. I only give him fruitables for treats. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't stuff kongs because with 2 dogs they both want the same one and Ruggles is twice Buster's size. I know people stuff them with peanut butter, cheese. bananna! Sounds messy for inside and outside might attract bugs or worse!

    With our other dogs we always filled them with peanut butter and then put them in the freezer. Makes the peanut butter hard (less messy) and takes them longer to get out! My new pup loves them too because it must feel good on her teeth since she's teething!

    We don't stuff our Kongs either, but freezing them with peanut butter or cheese does sound like it would keep them busy. We also give our babies Fruitables for treats, they love them and they are good for them.

    Re: Kongs

    Babette loves her kong. We used to stuff it with a natural type meaty treat but now that she's figured out how to get them out in no time flat (aka throwing them down the stairs until gravity helps bounce it out) we stick to stuffing her bone. Freezing is a great idea, I think I'll give it a try. Thanks for the suggestion.
