    the other thing I have done with it is put layers of small dry food, peanut butter, more small dry food and then some cheese spread and freeze it. Our guys love Kongs, even when there is no food in them, they'll chew on them, chuck them around etc...

    Ziggy doesn't like the Kong either. Just leaves the food in there (which is really unusual as she would do anything for food and leaves nothing behind ). To keep her entertained I fill some of her dry food in an empty water botte and give it to her. It's funny to watch when she kicks the bottle around in the backyard trying to get everything out. I also bought a little tyre which is hollow to put things inside. I fill that one with peanut butter now and then and Ziggy goes crazy

    If a dog is not really food motivated then a Kong toy holds no interest for them. All my Deerhounds found them boring and my Sheltie wasn't interested either.

    Great idea...I think Candy would LOVE that too

    Just make sure you watch them with the kibble in the plastic bottle, Leo has cut his mouth before on one as they can get sharp edges when they chew on the top of them. I give Leo milk bottles now (As they're a bit softer plastic) and cut a few 20c size holes around the bottle too, as he cant seem to figure out the food comes out of the hole on the bottle neck and ends up chewing the neck closed, trapping the treats and driving him more and more nuts LOL

    We got Ziggy the 'bone' Kong, she loved it the first time she used it but seems to have lost interest in it, unless we put it in front of her mouth when she's in a chewing mood. It could be the kibble we're using, she doesn't seem to like it that much (she would prefer the cat biscuits, and one of our cats seems to prefer the dog kibble... sigh). The milk bottle sounds like a good idea, I'll give that a go.

    Hi! my pups don't seem to like them either - bored after 5 seconds! AND THEY WERE SO EXPENSIVE!!! They seem to like chewing on the hard end of a dry palm frond, sticks & roots of plants that they've ripped out! Cheeky monkeys! Bones seem to keep them occupied for a very long time too. I've been getting lamb shanks by the dozen 'cos they're cheaper than buying pigs ears (my butcher has them for $1.20 each) & they last longer :-)

    I had the same trouble with my dog and her Kong ... She'd sniff and lick then go "too hard" never to be played with again!

    A few weeks later I started using it as a ball (the odd shape makes it's bounce hard to predict) then she loved it ... There's even still an old bit of dog biscuit stuck in it that even I can't get out!
