My pup just hasn't been taking to his Kong really, so I figured what the heck. So I ask to you, fellow Lab lovers...
what do you stuff in YOUR Kong?
Champ gets mostly kibble, coated in peanut butter to make it sticky and tasty.
Also, I'll stick a banana in and freeze it, that keeps his attention for a bit.
I stuff it full of fruit first (usually bananas, sometimes apples), then either a meaty treat or some yogurt. I cover both ends with peanut butter and sometimes sprinkle kibble on the top.
Banana with peanut butter to seal the holes here usually.
Seal tip with PB, about two tablespoons of applesauce (plain, natural, unsweetened), maybe a piece of banana, and the fill with kibble pushing it down until applesauce nears the top, seal with pb, freeze. HK loves it.
Hershey Kisses, In charge of getting Ed out to the dog park so that he gets some exercise.
Usually I spread a little peanutbutter around the inside, pack them with treats and apple slices and seal the ends with some more peanutbutter, then pop them in the freezer. Caleb only gets a stuffed Kong once in awhile as a treat. When I had to keep him quiet after he was neutered, I also fed him his meals out of the big one, using the same method as with the treats.
That is exactly how I fill Riley's kongs. She has 2 now, so there's always one frozen and ready to go!Originally Posted by Endofile
I've used all of the following and even made some pretty disgusting mixtures of them, too -- bananas, green beans, non-flavored yogurt, pumpkin, mashed potatoes, cooked sweet potatoes, applesauce, carrots, kibble, and almost always, a little dab of peanut butter.
Then I freeze them.
Shelby will eat anything, in any combination.
Only dry things since my two like to eat them on the couch when we are at work. Melted yogurt puddles on your couch aren't fun.
So, I use different cookies in there. I've timed them, it keeps them busy for about 1 hour, maybe 1.5 depending.

I've made some nasty stuff for Boo as well. His favorite is Friday's frozen sardine Kong! :-X He eats this one outside.
