    Default Kong Toy....boring???

    How do I get Candy interested in her kong toy? I've only used the biscuits and the paste so far, but once she licked out what she could, the rest is just sitting at the bottom going yuck!
    Isn't she ment to push it about and chew it ect?
    I hear other dogs play with them for hours and can even destroy them...Candy's is just going to rot in the weather!! LOL

    I bought a Kong years 3 years ago for our late dog Mack and it's still sitting out in the backyard in the same condition as when we bought it (3 doggy generations later). None of my dogs have ever been interested in it. I thought the same thing, that it would keep them occupied for ages. They will try and get food out of it, but after that they leave it alone. I think it's because of the shape or texture. Not sure!

    I agree...it's too hard and wide to chew, and I don't know how they are ment to get food out from way down the bottom and the biscuits that go with it...not even I can get them out once they are in.. LOL

    I'm thinking of putting some sort of liquid with little bits of food in it...freezing it, then giving it to her, that way it'll slowly melt and she can get all the stuff out.

    I have just bought a puppy kong to combat seperation anxiety and it does keep dozer interested for a short while but I'm not sure it will last for hours.
    I am interested in trying some of these recipes but does any know if they are ok to give puppies (dozer is 13 weeks)? Maybe if I just mash a banana into it?

    wet down his puppy food and stick that in there. Make sure you don't double up though. If he gets a kong, no dinner!

    My sisters dogs love their Kongs.. The first thing they always bring to you is their Kong, doesnt matter if you want to play or not..
    Funny thing is, they wont touch each others Kongs even though they are identical..

    Well, my 2.5 yr old son LOVES the kong toy LOL

    He stuffs it with stones (I don't know how many of you have ABC on tv in the mornings..but there is a kids show called In the Night Garden...there is a character called Makka Pakka and he collects stones..he's my son's fav)...so this is where he gets his love of stones from

    It's not a good thing though as Candy loves stones too

    what i do is chuck in anything that fits in there that he can eat and then put peanut butter over the top so he needs to get through that to get to the other food. you can also do that but instead of giving it to them like that put it in the freezer for a while and then give it to them

    I actually can't find Candy's kong toy

    It's probably in the sandpit...Candy takes the kids toys..so they take hers
