    How many other people use Kongs for their dogs?
    What do you fill them with? I've tried biscuits etc and they just fall out. Peanut butter has been suggested but that can't be healthy for the dogs:eek:

    no way things should last much longer than that, the longer the better

    Our problem is 2 Kongs, 5 dogs - as long as they don't have anything in the dogs are OK but put something in them and it is war!

    sometimes even if you have one each they will want the other dogs you could try 1 each and see if it helps unfortunately dogs to tent to argue over food as do mine on occasion

    Soak your dry food in a little water then press it in really hard, in summer or for teething pups freeze it. Frozen beef broth or veg soup is also very useful, especially after an op where the dog can't do much exercise, yogurt frozen is also good.
    I agree the kong paste is rubbish, over priced and the ingredients are terrible, as bad as cheap dog food.

    One of my friends suggested filling a Kong with peanut butter and putting it in the freezer, it keeps her dog occupied for ages trying to get through it as it slowly melts, Ive not tried it as yet on my puppy - think its too soon for peanut butter - or is it???

    We usually stuff one end of the kong with a lump of cheese and fill the rest with a mixture of peanut butter, cream cheese (out of a tube is easiest) doggie treats etc and then we ram another piece of cheese to plug the other end. This keeps Jazz amused for quite a time.:)
