How to stuff a
Stuffing a KONG is easy. You can stuff anything that is safe for your dog to eat (in healthy amounts) into their KONG.
To maintain your dog’s interest for a longer period of time it is always best to offer then a four-course meal. This means shaking up the ingredients as they work through the KONG.
For your fourth course you need to fill the little hole on top with a thick paste, like Dog-Friendly PeaMUTT Butter to tantalise your dog. This will also act like a plug. Fill the third course with small dog treats should take you to around the halfway point. Why not try our Pointer’s Soft Treats?
The second course can be filled with an exciting treat such as wet meat. Our Harrington’s trays are perfect for this. You should now be almost at the big hole, so keep filling up until you can just about squeeze a medium to large biscuit in. This acts as their first course, it’s quite an easy first reward but gets them serious about working for the rest. Our Pet Bakery biscuits are great for this, you can even pick up a Sunday Roast flavoured to keep on theme!
There are hundreds of recipes available out there and there is no wrong way of filling a KONG. As long as it is filled with dog-friendly food and used in moderation, it makes for an engaging snack which develops their mind and eases anxieties.

Bonus: For an added challenge, freeze KONG for 4-6 hours before giving to your dog.
