I do a paste mix of plain 0% greek yogurt, almond butter, and crushed dog biscuit, which I put into the kong and then freeze. My guy loves his kong-sicle. Literally jumps in his crate when it’s time for me to leave because he is so happy to be getting his kong. Sometimes I mix in some banana, if I don’t finish mine for breakfast. Peas are also a good mix-in. He only gets kong 3 times a week, so that helps us limit his consumption. And I always make sure to reduce his regular kibble amount a bit to compensate for the kong yumminess so that he doesn’t get overfed.

Have you seen the Kong-sized treats in the store?

 

They’re shaped weirdly so they’re hard to get out. Anyhow, I make my own using a dog biscuit recipe I found online. The pups love it!

I put peanut butter in mine which I freeze overnight. It helps it last a little longer.

I mostly do peanut butter and pop it in the freezer. I haven’t tried anything else, but I may have to.

Commenting to follow! So far I have only added peanut butter. But I have read recipes with yogurt and oats.

I usually stick the dry kibbles that she eats for dinner in there.

Sometimes I get a beef chew and stick it out, it’s easier for her to hold onto the kong and I don’t have to worry about it getting too short and her swallowing it.

Usually some food mixed with treats we get at the Petco bulk treat bar.

Our dog gets the stuff out too fast though, so we buy Bully Sticks in bulk online. Amazing for teething (they’re tough to chew through) and super yummy for the pup.

@msfuturea:  You can get bully sticks at any pet store but I don’t know about in bulk online…I just wanted to say that rawhide isn’t the best thing for dogs’ tummies and they have a hard time digesting it – so I would look at bully sticks for sure!

@msfuturea:  Sure thing! 

I started with this recipe and then subbed regular flour for oat flour. 

  •  banana, peeled
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup dried parsley
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 egg, beaten

Method: 

Preheat oven to 300°F. Put banana in a large bowl and use a spoon or potato masher to mash it thoroughly. Add oat flour, oats, parsley, peanut butter and egg and stir well to combine. Set aside for 5 minutes. 

Roll mixture into 24 balls, using about 1 tablespoon dough for each; transfer to a large parchment paper-lined baking sheet as done. Use the back of a spoon or the heel of your hand to press each ball into a (1 1/2- to 2-inch) coin. Bake until firm and deep golden brown on the bottom, 40 to 45 minutes. Set aside to let cool completely. 

Storage note: It’s best to store these in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Or, freeze them to give to your pal later; just be sure to thaw the treats befor handing them out.

Love bully sticks, they are my dogs favourite! 

in his kong I use, peanut butter, yogurt, cheeze whiz (which is so bad because we don’t even eat that, but he loves it) raw honey, bananas, mashed sweet potatoe (cooked), mashed avacado, cheese, and probably more I’m forgetting.
