Hey again!

I was making my puppy Blaze a KONG for her lunch using her kibble (softened in water), tinned tuna, banana and plain greek yoghurt (sounds disgusting, but she LOVED it! :rolleyes: ), and I loved watching her enjoy it so much, and it encouraged me to look for more healthy recipes she might enjoy.

So I was wondering, what do you stuff your KONGS with? And how often do you feed your dogs using KONGS?

Go easy on the tuna. Once in a while is OK, but it's high in mercury so not good to feed a lot. Canned mackerel is a better alternative and probably cheaper. Salmon would be a good choice as well.

 

Still go somewhat easy on any canned fish, though, as it's also high in salt.

I just fill them with canned dog food. Stick them in the freezer in the morning and give them to the dogs at night. Usually occupies them for 30+ minutes.

 

I only do kong's in the winter really. A few times per week. It's a treat and not part of their regular diet.

I mix kibble and wet food together, stuff the kongs, then put them in the freezer. I like the mix because the kibble expands and adds to the difficulty of getting it all out. I count that as part of their daily food intake. If you feed raw maybe some raw meat chunks and some canned pumpkin would also be about the same.

If I don't have any frozen Kongs available, I wedge washed baby carrots in them; it usually takes three to present enough of a challenge to keep them busy. Or, I'll stuff rolled dog food in them.

 

ETA: Just a caveat; I suppose baby carrots could present a choking hazard. My dogs are fine with them.
