At the moment I have a peanut butter at the tip and rub on the inner lining with yogurt pineapple and strawberries in the middle.

I don't use peanut butter often to manage Taco's shape and dental health. His teeth seem to be browning early.

Pump for more suggestions.

How do you layer this??? In a cup and freeze??? How quickly do they go through it? It sounds messy.

K.. sorry for the double post but as I go back and read on this thread I am noticing that if I gave these treats to Zee AND her normal food she really would resemble a hippo. So do some of you feed these as meals?? I just bought some chubs from Columbia valley?? i think that is what it is called, raw chubs the "cow pie" and the chicken with liver. However, if I gave her this in a kong it would constitute a meal. How long does it usually take a semi driven dog to get through one?

anytime you give ANY treats (training or just "you're cute!" treats) factor it in to the daily meals. So if they get one of these gourmet kongs, they get less at mealtime. If you do a lot of training and they earned a lot of treats, they get less at mealtime. They won't notice.

How long it lasts depends on the size of the Kong, the stuffing (is it really packed or not), if it's frozen or not, and the individual dog.

I have 'large' Kongs for the girls. I always stuff them in the evening & freeze overnight; it takes them longer to eat & it's a nice cold treat in the summer. I'd say my girls average 30 minutes.

If you put non fat yogurt, and fruits, I am sure it will be figure friendly. Or just plugging it and freezing water or broth on a hot summer day would be low fat.

K.. that makes sense. I don't treat because she has such a SLooooooooooooooooooooow metabolism. I did get the Cow Pie Chub from Columbia Valley and so I think I will buy a big black kong and put that in there.

I could actually use the black kong as her meal too. 30min would be GREAT!! She eats so fast that her brain doesn't register it is full. lol

Oscar had a restuffed marrow bone last night that was a bunch of training treats, tuna, and grain free slightly moistened kibble, a smidge of salmon oil, stuffed and then frozen into a bone that he'd previously emptied. All the stuff was mixed together, though I could have layered them as well.

Peanut butter or yogurt; freezing the filling in the kong makes it last longer.
