    Defaultfrozen kong

    I read somewhere about giving a frozen kong for something different and to keep them occupied. How exactly do I do that? put peanut butter in it and put it in the freezer? Does peanut butter even freeze?

    That's what I do. Stuff it full of peanut butter (or cream cheese), maybe mixed with kibble and freeze it. Yes the peanut butter freezes, especially if your freezer is very cold. Keeps them buzy for a long time and a nicetreat on a hot day. (Thnaks for the reminder, Kodi is entered in a show this weekend, in a barn with no air conditioning, it will be a nice treat to keep her cool).

    PB, or Plain Yogurt or Apple Sauce. Mix with a few pieces of kibble, a few pieces of carrot or other veggie, or anything else you can think of.

    The dogs love it.

    All of the above. We sometimes put canned dog food in it to freeze as a treat.

    I like the canned food idea... I've done yougurt, banana, strawberries... I blend it and then add banana nut cherrios for crunch fill it up and freeze... I little bit of heaven on a hot summer day.

    I wrap mine in foil so they don't drip while freezing.

    I use MOSTLY kibble, otherwise that is ALOT of peanut butter.

    My technique (I do this DAILY for two dogs): fill bottom half of kong with kibble. put about 1 tablespoon of peanut butter ( I don't measure though) into kong, fill with more kibble. This kibble is usually part of their breakfast portion. I pour some water thru the kong, let it drip, then stick in freezer (upside down). Then in the AM i just throw it at them

    For new fosters I usually don't freeze until they figure out what the kong is I just fill it with part kibble, abit of pb, then more kibble (no water, no freezing).

    I put a kibble with some peanut butter glob on the bottom hole and fill them with veggies and a few more kibbles, then pour chicken or beef broth over top. Freeze it big hole up. They fit nicely in concentrated juice tins, and that way if there's spillage its caught in the juice can.

    These last about an hour...they're solid!

    I do like HK's Dad does. Peanut butter is pretty high calorie in the larger kongs so I mix it up really good with plain or vanilla yogurt, throw in some apple pieces, bananas, kibble....
    I never thought of canned dog food though.....Mya would love that too!
