List Of Kong Stuffing Recipes
Here are some recipes your dog might love. Mine does, I hope yours too!
- 1 banana
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- Cut off the end of a ripe banana and block the small hole at the bottom of the kong. Slice 3 or 4 thin pieces and put to one side.
- Mash the remaining banana in a bowl
- Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to bowl
- Add 1 tablespoon of honey and mix
- Fill kong with banana mash
- Place the sliced pieces on the top to seal the large end.
- Smear with a little oil and put in the fridge to set for an hour.
- 1 Cored and diced apple
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/3 cup apple juice
Mix ingredients and heat on the stove or in the microwave until there is no more liquid. Let it cool and then stuff it into Kong. Freeze for a greater challenge.
Apples are one of the best sources of vitamins A and C. They are low in protein and fat, but the sugar content is high. Ask your vet before giving them to your dog.
Make sure you remove the seeds and core first, as they are toxic for dogs!
- Cucumber (chopped in quarters or halves)
- Sugar and xylitol-free plain yogurt.
- 2-3 Fresh Mint leaves (stem removed)
- Shredded Chicken or kibble (optional)
- Place the Kong upside down in an empty egg carton.
- Add chopped cucumber into the opening of the Kong and press into the bottom. Set some aside for later.
- If using kibble or chicken, add this as the next layer, again saving some of each to add to the top.
- Press 1-2 mint leaves into the Kong.
- Using a small spoon, fill the Kong with yogurt.
- Add another small layer of chopped cucumber, followed by more yogurt. Tap your Kong on your countertop to ensure the yogurt gets in all the crevices.
- Add a slice of cucumber, chicken (optional), a little bit of kibble (optional) and the remaining mint leaf.
- Place the Kong upside down in the egg carton and leave it in the freezer overnight.
- Remove Kong from the freezer and enjoy!
Xylitol is a naturally occurring alcohol that is often used as a sugar substitute. It is very toxic for dogs and can cause hypoglycemia, seizures, and liver failure.
- A part of your dog’s normal kibble
- A spoonful of low-fat cottage cheese
- A chunk of banana
- Fill the Kong half full with kibble.
- add 3/4 of the cottage cheese and shake the Kong.
- Add the remaining kibble.
- Fill with the rest of the cottage cheese before plugging the opening with the banana piece.
This recipe helps dogs with anxiety, because of the ‘casein’ amino acids found in cottage cheese.
