Abby Demonstrates How To Use A Kong

First off, the Kong is for treats or good food. Just peanut butter in it does not interest me all that much. I bat it around with my paws and the food falls out. Sometimes I will hold it steady with my paw and pull the treats out with my tongue. Sometimes if they get stuck, I will throw the Kong up in the air and it usually loosens them up. For this video, Karen just used my normal weight management food to slow me down at eating my breakfast. Normally, she will give me my Kong right before she leaves for work. This started because when I first came to live with Karen and Gerard, I used to bark like crazy whenever they left the house. Giving me the Kong distracted me and gave me something to do that I liked. I no longer bark when they leave because I know they will return at some point.

Good technique Abby! You are a fast eater! My mommy puts a thin layer of peanut butter around the inside side of my Kong and then fills it with food or treats and seals the top with more peanut butter. That holds everything in more so it takes me longer to eat everything then I lick the inside to get every last morsel. Kongs are just a lot of fun!

I forgot to say that was me Sadie! I didn't want you to think my little kitty sisfurs had Kongs!

I think they make those for cats too. I thought I saw one at the store the other day and thought about getting one for Hobbes.

Love Kongs! I think we have 4 or 5 of them but may not find 2 or 3 until spring :).

We put peanut butter into Lindy's Kong the first time we gave it to her, and now nothing else will interest her, no matter what we put in it. I like the idea of combining a bit of peanut butter with the healthy dog food.
