The art of stuffing a kong

To pair nicely with the enrichment guide this is a blog post on how to stuff a kong. Something seemingly simple but an art form in itself!



Top tips:

For a dog that gets frustrated easily you may wish to provide different layers or mix up the ingredients inside the kong or provide the yummiest bit at the smallest section of the kong.

When introducing a new food to your dog do so with one at a time to track if they have a bad reaction to a certain filling.

Feed your dog their meal times using a kong and soaked kibble.

How to clean a kong

Safety

Do not leave your dog unattended with large chunks of food. If leaving your dog alone with a kong use a spread or mushed option. Always make sure that the small hole at the top of the kong is clear all the way through the kong toy. This is to prevent your dogs tongue getting stuck by suction. This can be done by sticking a skewer through the finished stuffed kong.
