Although the weather has cooled a little, we’re still hearing of hounds who are off their food. You loved the Kong recipes, so we thought we’d try and tempt your best friends with more tasty treat ideas.
As well as the Everlasting Treat Balls, we now stock the brilliant Pickle Pocket and Tetraflex treat toys. These are new treat dispensers which will keep your dog happy for hours, and the Pickle Pocket is particularly good for chewers as it’s virtually indestructible! Choose any of our wide range of healthy treats and load up your chosen toy to keep your dog occupied for hours.
Alternately, you can use any combination of food or treats in your tried-and-tested Kong; just remember to block the hole with something and use a high value seal on the top, such as peanut butter, liver paste or salmon paste to get your dog really going. Here are a few favourites:
Cheesey Chicken – simply stuff with alternate layers of diced chicken and cottage cheese, then freeze with a chicken’s foot sticking out.
Fit for a King – smear the inside of the Kong with peanut butter and fill with banana and beef chunks. Seal with peanut butter and freeze.
Shepherd’s Pie – plug the Kong hole with some leftover mashed potato and then fill with free flow tripe mince. Seal with more mash or cheese.
Just be careful that you don’t overfeed your dog and cut back on the normal daily allowance if you are regularly loading a treat dispenser for him.
