What do you all like to put in your dog's Kongs?
My guys like peanut butter!
Sometimes they get left overs in their kongs.

Sometimes, not always though, I put these grain free little treats in his kong. I make him work for his food. Gets his brain going too. I do this once a week or sometimes I don't do it at all. I don't like to give him too many though... :smile:

I stuff anything I feed Earl (that will fit) in a Kong. I haven't transitioned to prey model feeding yet, so I stuff the Bil-Jac frozen I am currently feeding in the Kong. If you freeze it, the Kong lasts longer and keeps the pups busy and happy! Kongcicles!...Yummy

My dogs have never liked Kongs... I know they're supposed to be great but they just didn't fit into our routine.
Put good tasting stuf inside and they'll go wild over them. I've used peanut butter and cheesewhiz. I've also crammed one full of hot dog.

Usually peanut butter. :smile: I have done raw honey and yogurt, too, though.

My dog loves his kong, with or without treats! He throws it and chases it himself all over the house! I think he likes it so much because of it's strange shape that causes it to bounce in unpredictable directions as opposed to his ball.

I usually fill the Kong with raw ground beef, chicken or turkey. But my dogs favorite is liver. I freeze it overnight, it keeps him busy for an hour or so.

I used to give him bully sticks but once he mastered them they only lasted for 15 minutes. At $2.50 a piece it has getting very expensive. With the frozen raw meat in the Kong it lasts longer and is far cheaper.

Here are some cool kong recipes i found;

Other Tasty Kong Recipes To Try
The following Kong stuffings are made with one or more human food ingredients:

CHEESY ELVIS: Combine a ripe banana, 3 spoonfuls of peanut butter, and a slice of cheese. Mix until blended well. Fill the Kong and freeze.

MONSTER MASH: Instant mashed potatoes (without the salt) -- or leftover mashed potatoes from dinner -- mixed with crushed dog biscuits.

DOGGIE OMLET: Combine a scrambled egg, some beef, yogurt, cheese and mashed potatoes all together

FIBER CRUNCH: Combine bran cereal with some peanut butter.

KONGSICLE JERKY POPS: The equivalent of a popsicle... Seal the small hole of the Kong toy with peanut butter. Fill to the rim with water and a pinch of bouillon (or just use chicken broth instead). Place a stick or two of beef jerky inside. Freeze. (This one gets messy in a hurry, so it's recommended only for outdoor use.)

GOOEY CHEERIOS: Combine cheerios and peanut butter. Freeze.

FRUIT KITTY NOODLES: Mix together some dried fruit, cooked pasta, banana and dry cat food.

BANANA YOGURT: Plain yogurt and mashed bananas. (You can also add a little peanut butter or other fruits.) Then freeze it.

PEANUT BUTTER GLUE: Fill Kong 1/3rd full of dog food. Pour in melted peanut butter (after it has cooled from microwaving). Add more dog food, followed by more melted peanut butter until the Kong toy is full. Freeze until solid.

ROCK-HARD KIBBLE: Combine some of your dog's regular food with cream cheese, which acts as a cement, keeping everything inside.

STICKY BREAD: Smear peanut butter on a piece of bread. Fold it over and stuff inside the Kong. Mix together plain yogurt with some fruits or vegetables (carrots, celery) and pour inside. Freeze. The yogurt sticks to the bread holding everything together.

APPLE PIE: Squeeze a small piece of apple into the tiny hole. Fill the Kong with a small amount of plain yogurt. Add a few slices of mashed banana, more apple, yogurt, banana. End with a slice of banana and chunk of peanut butter on the top.

Unfortunately, when Zio got a bit bigger he found that he could chew the tops off the Kongs, no problem. So no more Kongs in our house. :redface:

Another really common one...wet dog food (can, pouch, roll, etc.) and freeze.

Sure you could mix a bunch of stuff in with that one as well. :biggrin:
