i seal the small end of the kong with a swipe of peanut butter.

i have never filled the kong with peanut butter. i figured that was way too fattening. i usually fill ours with yogurt. sometimes i mix in some crushed up treats or fruit or veggies or a combination of that.

we have bought the red ones, but after getting the black ones last time... i think we are sticking with the black ones. right now emma has a puppy one, but she will be due for an upgrade eventually.

an email list i am on did a kong recipe email a while back. here are some of the sites that have kong recipes...
http://www.hcfrgroup.com/newsletter/...ngcontest.html
http://www.labmed.org/catalog/kong2.html
http://dogs.thefuntimesguide.com/200..._chew_toys.php
http://www.geocities.com/joan_sinden/kong.html
http://www.perfectpuppytoys.com/kostre.html

there were also some individual recipes posted. if anyone is interested, i will post them too.

I like cheese. Add one slice to a medium to large kong (half for a small?) microwave for 5 seconds. Let it cool a while and serve. Its like 10 calories and keeps them busy for half an hour since it sticks to the sides as it cools.

I froze wet bread in it once. THAT worked to keep them busy. But it was messy.... and took a day to freeze since there was also peanut butter involved.

My dogs love their kongs, even Millie who is selective about the toys she really loves. You can fill it with all kinds of things, most mentioned above already.
Anything I'm fine with my dogs having I stuff in there.
There are sizes and textures to suit pretty much any dog.

I have a medium size one that I could shove a medium dog biscuit in for Chip .... Ollie doesn't bother with it at all ! Rather have a fresh bone .

I mix kibble with plain whole milk yogurt and stuff and freeze. I seal the big end with a dog cookie. The small end doesn't need to be sealed with that particular stuffing because it doesn't run out if you just use like a spoonful of yogurt per a whole kong's worth of kibble.

My guys just play with their Kongs. They like to chase them, chew on them, etc. Sometimes I stuff them with something, but more often than not, they're just laying around incase they feel like playing.

HOW, How, how do you clean them? It's freakin' impossible. I end up sticking my finger down it and scrubbing with a rag. *sigh*

Usually I dump some dry kibble in Middie's to make him work for his dinner. It also means that lazy old me doesn't have to scrub a large ceramic bowl--all I need to do is run water through the kong to get the crumbs.

Sometimes frozen peanutbutter, yogurt, etc. I'm checking out those kong recipes.

Kongs are dishwasher safe, my friend!
