    I went and got a puppy kong for chloe today (the large breed puppy one) and i got some treats which i thought would fit but they are to small:( Anyways i was wondering if there were different sized treats because the only treats that were there were the small ones and the peanut butter in the can?
    P.S. Sorry if this is a silly question but i have heard so many of you talk about them i had to go out and get chloe one.

    I put real peanut butter in mine. Sometimes I mash a baked apple and flax in it too. You can mix treats up with the peanut butter. Freeze them to make them last longer.

    My best bet with Chip ( he has the medium size kong ) is a dog bicky I have to force in. I did get him a large one, but he'd empty it in 2 minutes .

    I did not know it the treats were supposed to fit tightly in the big end or just put them all the way inside of it. Chloe was able to get them out (she loved her kong by the way) but i will try the peanut butter and the treats and freezing next time. All natural peanut butter right?
    thanks for the info.

    Riot doesn't have a kong right now, he prefers things that are squishy and squeak at home, but whenever we visit another home and they have a kong, hes on it like a fat kid on cake lol

    Friends of mine that have a kong, have used peanut butter. i've also seen canned dog food smooshed into it as well(the same type of food the dog is normally fed, but in canned form).

    Here are some websites that I found a while back
    Kong Recipies and Ideas

    I myself jam raw chicken pieces and cheese into the kong and freeze it, but I don't use it all that often now that my dogs are dependable when alone.

    Madeline has a medium size kong, I break a dog biscuit in half, dip the large end in peanut butter and stuff it in the kong, large side first, I squeese the kong to get it in, it is quite hard to get out and she licks and chews on it for some time before the bone comes out. She is getting pretty good at it though, it is one of her most favorite things to do.

    I even put some kibble in it and they have fun knocking it around getting the kibble to fly out.

    I use a different kong, I use the one that is in a shape of a bone with holes in each end, and I fill each end with peanut butter, but I make sure to squish it into the crevices, I think that makes it take longer for Bailey to clean it out and keeps him happy longer. I'd love to have a camera on him and watch him eat at that for lord only knows how long.
