It is important for dogs to succeed at their "work". Make it easy to remove the kong stuffing at first.
As they become more experienced, you may want to make their job more challenging - here's how:
- Pack stuffing tighter.
- Wedge biscuits inside the cavity using the inside rim of the opening to secure them.
- FREEZE IT! Very Popular! Try various combinations of canned food, gravy, noodles, rice and mashed potatoes mixed with food nuggets and freeze. KONGSICLES are a favorite with many hot dogs! Put a dab of peanut butter in the small end of the Kong to plug it. Turn it upside down in a cup. Fill it full of water, chicken broth or fruit juice and freeze. Cool doggies! Kongsicles are recommended for outdoor use.
- CHEESE IT! Mix cheese pieces or cheese spread with food nuggets and microwave until cheese melts. Let it cool to a safe temperature.
NOTE - Use a cup to contain the Kong when freezing or microwaving.
