How to stuff a Kong

No grapes, raisins, onions, or chocolate

Possible Kong Stuffers:

Cut very tiny pieces of any of the following ingredients. Put the Kong openning side up in a coffee mug to hold the Kong still for stuffing. Stuff Kong and freeze. Always keep a spare in the freezer. To occupy your dog during the dinner hour, feed them their regular kibble amount in the Kong. If you only have one dog, you can hide stuffed Kong throughout the house while away.

Place in dishwasher after use.

  1. You can also stuff a kong with kibble, put some cheese in the middle and on top, then microwave it for a few seconds. Then freeze. Frozen melted cheese is very time intensive, Amelia says!

  2. Another tip from Amelia's mom:

    I just squirt some canned cheese in and microwave for about 10 seconds. Then freeze overnight. Have frozen
    for 1/2 hour when I forgot to fix it the night before.

    Works best with overnight. Cheese is worth the work, Amelia says.
