We just started puppy school and the trainer said that we should give all our puppy’s meals in a kong or puzzle toy to keep them more occupied while they get their meal. It’s amazing how well it works! It makes her meal span out for about 45 minutes, instead of chowing down and then running around and getting everything. Right now we have 6 Kongs packed up and ready to go- 2 mini, 2 medium, and 3 large- depending on what she gets it for (meals, treats, alone time, etc.). I put a treat all the way in the bottom and then kibble to the opening and then close it with a little all natural peanut butter and then put them in the freezer. I recommend this to whoever has a puppy who is starting to get into everything and want to keep them occupied for awhile- stuffing them can be a project, but it’s definitely worth the piece of mind.

We recently adopted 3 wonderful, adorable pups – 2 of whom are still in their “chewing stage”. Based on the recommendation of friends, we decided to give the “Kong” a try – and it’s awesome!
“Kongs” are made to be extremely strong, so they don’t fall apart when the little ones chew on them for hours (or even when our big guy decides to have a little chewing action on it himself). We’ve found that our dogs love them as is, but they REALLY get into it when we insert a treat or some of the “Kong” vitamin-enriched tasty paste into the open cavity. They’ll spend lots of time and energy attempting to get the treat out (which is unlikely) &/or enjoying the “tasty paste”.
Overall, we found this to be a great toy for our “little ones” – it provides them with something that they’re allowed to chew & that I as a “puppy parent” don’t have to worry about falling apart due to long bouts of gnawing. Our dogs give the “Kong” a “2 paws up”!!!
