I wouldn’t freeze one, personally. I don’t think it would do the material any good.

Is it just a case of having one pre done? If so, we always kept a tube of primula cheese in the fridge and filled them with that if we didn’t have any meat. The dogs went nuts over it! It took all of about 5 seconds to sort out too 🙂

bibber:  I usually fill mine with kibble and then top with peanut butter before freezing. I’ve never tried a whole week but I’ve left it in there for a few days without any issues.

I think the longest I’ve gone is 3-4 days but I think a week would be fine.

I’ve done up to 10 days (filled it, then went away and forgot it was in the freezer til we got back). It was totally fine. Usually they’re only in there for max 48 hours since I only have 2 and she gets one almost daily (days she doesn’t are days I forgot to refill and freeze…whoops, sorry girly).

stephisaur:  Freezing kongs is very normal. I freeze mine not to have one on-hand but because once frozen they keep the pup entertained for way longer. With a non-frozen kong she can empty it in under 5 minutes. A frozen kong keeps her occupied for up to 45 minutes. Pup occupied = awesome.

I always used to freeze them and I probably used one that was frozen for over a week. I’d say it’s fine.

TravelingBride31:  Well, you learn something new every day! They always seem to keep my dogs occupied for ages anyway (even though they inhale everything else) so I never really thought about it! 🙂

stephisaur:  New dog-occupying tricks are the best 🙂 My male dog takes ages with a kong frozen or thawed so luckily with him I can whip one up quickly if needed. My female though seems to have insane tongue-skills with a kong so frozen is the only way to slow her down

stephisaur:  you’re really lucky! Our dog will plow through an unfrozen kong in less than 5 minutes – freezing it extends the time to about half an hour. Although he won’t touch it at all if I use organic peanut butter which is so weird – he’s all about the classic Skippy lol.

LilliV:  haha I love when dogs have weird food preferences! One of mine HATES mango yoghurt, but the other will eat anything haha

We always make sure to really cram everything into the Kongs – the dogs have to pick them up and drop them to dislodge all the stuff I’ve crammed at the top! Doesn’t sound like that’s a problem for yours though
