    When you do a roast dinner, stuff leftovers into it and freeze or chill it. It keeps them happy for hours.

    Peanut butter and dog food together works well, squeeze cheese, Chicken and string cheese broken up into bits…

    Peanut butter, Spray cheeze or cheese whiz.. if its HOT outside. Put some frozen veggies in it. ( california blend is great for that).. Or a couple of ice cubes. Dogs love them to play with.

    Yea my dog enjoys the peanut butter too but its a pain in the butt to clean out. I ended up buying a toothbrush for cleaning duty specifically for that reason. But Bear loved that toy, especially if I was leaving him in his crate while going out, it was a good “Mommy’s leaving” distraction.

    My dogs normally don’t like Ham either. Especially Deli Meat type.
    I have done Peanut Butter… but it seems hard for them to get it all, and its hard to clean out the leftover… So I tend to go and get the training liver treats, or the “mini” Milk Bones.. My Staffordshire loves the flavored ones.
    Beggin; Strips work too.. anything from the pet store… But I myself do not reccomend the spray cheese or anything soft.. for the same reason as the Peanut Butter.. Don’t want anything getting ” moldy” and making your dog sick down the line!!!

    lol sock i have weims too thats awesome. ok i put peanut butter in them then freeze it and it last for hours of entertainment. you can also put kibble in it so that theres not so much peanut butter but its your choice.
    There are these things called kong stuffers that the stores sell you can look into those but peanut butter works just fine

    I mash up banana and peanut butter, throw in some dog treats, stuff the Kong and freeze it. My babies love it.
    I just found the greatest thing at Target. It is a Kong cleaning brush (shape of the kong) with a tiny little bush to get stuff in the top small hole. It is the greatest invention ever and it was only $6 (Target in the Pet section)
    I must seem really lame right now but last night was the first time I used it and I was soooo excited. My husband totally thought I was crazy but that’s because he never cleans them.

    My wife and I put a peanut butter and oatmeal mixture in ours. The ones I carry at my store suggest dog treats. Just get a size that won’t fall out very easily. You can pretty much put anything the dog likes in it. I’ve heard a lot of people suggest freezing the food (here included, obviously).
    Also, remember to wash the kong or a regular basis. There are a lot of nooks and crannies, so be sure not to let any food stuffs get left in there to mold. It’s easy to miss some. We used a tooth brush that was only for the kong, then would run it through the dish washer.

    Kong Stuffings:
    • Peanut Butter
    • Kong Stuffers for example Stuff’N Snaps
    • Frozen Banana (Smashed or cut)
    • Canned dog food
    • Yogurt/Low Fat
    • Frozen Yogurt/Low Fat
    • Canned dog food & Kibble (Frozen)
    • Baby Food (No Onion)
    • Dog Treats
    • Cream Cheese
    • Apples
    • Carrots
    • Meat, Turkey, Chicken, etc..
    • Strawberries
    As a frozen Kong treat this one is good.
    1 Banana (smooshed)
    Goat’s Milk Yogurt (plain)
    1 tbs Wheat Germ
    Many of the things above work well frozen and mixed together, for example Peanut butter and banana frozen or not frozen. If you don’t know what foods are safe for your dog then double check with your vet. Better safe then sorry.
    Preparing & Cleaning Up:
    • If you’re using a liquid substance in the kong, remember trying to block the opening of the knong with some sort of thicker substance, for example peanut butter so that the stuffings don’t leak out.
    • Cleaning them is a snap. In between dishwasher cleanings, you can soak them in a glass with dish soap and warm water. Leave it for an hour or two, then rinse and air dry! Baby bottle brushes work great too.

    I have a Weimaraner also. I stuff it with canned dog food and freeze it solid overnight and give it to him in the mornings when i leave. Don’t use the stuff that is made for Kongs, just a gimmick. You can stick a baby carrot in the tiny end so nothing leaks out when you freeze it upright.
    Jerky treats, mashed banana, bisquits, kibble, small amount of peanut butter, wedges of apple, and cottage cheese. Canned dog food like Canidae, or Innova Evo.
    I like to jam pack every thing in the Kong as tightly as possible as i have a very agressive chewer. But if your dog isn’t crazy about chewing, try not to pack it as tightly and just chill it in the freezer about an hour.
    Oh, and do make sure you wash them every so often. Don’t want to make your dog sick or anything from old, nasty food.
