    Monte likes his kong and we currently fill it with either biscuit treats or kong liver paste. I tried peanut butter today and he gave me one if those 'mummy is a complete loon' faces. What does anyone else out in their kong?

    Anything I can find that is safe for her to eat :D Usually some combination of peanut butter, marmite, honey, yoghurt, mashed banana, chopped fruit, wet dog food, kibble, awkward shaped dog biscuits (hard to get out), mashed potato, cheese (grated, melted, or small chunks) etc :)

    I've never wasted money on special fillers :D

    Some of the things I do:

    Wipe 1/4 a teaspoon of marmite around the inside to be licked out (an occasional treat as marmite is pretty salty)
    Do the same with a teaspoon full of cream cheese.

    If you feed wet, stuff it with the wet food and freeze - or if you feed dry soak the food and do the same.

    A wedge of cheese jammed in

    Dry dog food and grated cheese microwaved for 30 seconds to melt the cheese.


    Suitable table scraps - again these can be frozen to last longer

    Probiotic yogurt, you can mix anything in with it (dry dog food, pieces of carrot etc) and freeze.

    Hope that's given you some ideas

    On Christmas morning kivas breakfast was her 2 kongs filled with raw chicken mince, frozen. It took her about an hour and half to get it all out ;)
    Or I mix her wet and kibble with a little water and freeze, or just smear the inside with peanut butter or squeezy cheese :D
