Default Cheese

Is cheese ok for dogs? My friend says it messes up their sense of smell? Is this true? I was planning on stuffing her small kong with some daily, not a ton and the kong is pretty small.

I have never heard of that before. People often use cheese as a training treat for dogs. I know Hannah LOVES american cheese and I remember when we had Foxy we had to put his heartworm pill in a piece of cheese or else he wouldn't take it.
Secret to a successful life is not in playing a good hand, but in playing a poorly delt hand well.

The "messing up the sense of smell" is an old wives tale.

Cheese is fine to feed, but keep in mind it's fairly high in calories - just one ounce of regular cheddar cheese has around 120 calories, so use it very sparingly.

Cottage cheese or yogurt frozen in the Kong would be better.
