it's nice that you are promoting the use of kongs to the forum members. i guess many people wouldn't know what to do with them. i was very confused by them when i first read about them.

i just want to say that although they are pretty expensive, i do believe they are virtually indestructible. we have two, one for each dog. they love them and each has a unique way of unstuff their kong. we've had the kongs for over a year and they is virtually no wear and tear. it's really endless hours fo entertainment for the dogs. my sister says it's like doggy PSII.

however, my picky babies are soo spoilt-lah! when i put kibble in the kong as the main course, they ignore it. they just eat the stuff they like and scatter the rest around the living room as if to say, "serves you right for putting THAT rubbish in my kong."

their favourite fillings are scrambled egg and cheese, peanut butter and the doggyman dried chicken bits.

Am I promoting it Crazy Crazy Crazy ??? Guess the KONG Company should pay me some commission for this Cool Cool Cool !!!

When I first purchase the KONG, I have some "trouble" introducing to some of my dog but everything go on fine with-in a few days. Owner need to be a bit of patient and do some "play" with their dog while in the process of using KONG ...

Just my living experience sharing, I feed them in small portion over the bowl and once they "ask" for more, then the stuffed KONG came into!!! I guess it is a rather straight forward thing ... Wink Tongue Cool !!!

Indeed, I have find KONG to be most useful toy by far!!! I wonder who is the inventor? behind??

hi leopui,

Refers: "I wonder who is the inventor? behind?? " It's all stated in its web site Smile

Likewise, a few months back, I put kibbles in the KONG as well as some in the bowl. I need to do that in order for Rex NOT to gobble up the food too fast.

Hi CD Moo,

Thank you for the direction Smile but I have the debts on the history ... there are just a few different side of "story" I have learn all those years ... some claimed that it was originally from England and some said it was from Germany ... May be Markham "re-modify" the KONG???

This is not an big issue anyway but I thought it will be good to learn some history Wink !!!

My babies love their Kongs. We currently have three different shapes. A bone shape, the standard Kong shape with extra texture and a flying saucer shape. We've had a couple for a few years and I bought one more here because I wasn't sure their 'toys' would arrive in the crate when they came, but they did. They are expensive, but provide endless hours of enjoyment and are especially good if you have to leave your babies home alone like I do. I've never had one broken, but did lose one in the garden ... never to be seen again. Hopefully the next dog to arrive in the house will uncover it. My Emmy is good at that, whenever we move to a new house she finds all the buried treasures in the garden, goes through a digging phase that I get really annoyed with, but once she's done, she doesn't dig again.

No garden in our condo here ... Frown, still it's not that bad for them, it means I HAVE to take them for 3 or 4 walks a day. Good news. I bought a guard rail on the weekend and I've now got them loose in my bathroom rather than crated while I'm at work. I hope they appreciate it ... lol.

Hi everyone,

I bought the black Kong(largest size) and its expensive Rm 58.50. I am still a little confused what to stuff in there. The openings are quite big and normal dog food will simply fall out. I thought perhaps the crunchy bits is best mixed with canned dog food (luncheon meat type) but all the canned stuff are in chunky receipe. Can anyone suggest the appropriate fillings which will keep MAC entertained long enough?

Re: [HWONG] How To Use "KONG"??? [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Hwong,

Re-check the link and modify with what you have for the stuffing ...

I started with some small cube of semi cook liver (chix & pig), few table spoon of canned dog food, few table spoon of Tuna fish (chunk - in oil) and about 15 numbers of kibble ... mixed it and started stuffing!!!

Always wash the KONG after each use before stuffing the new stuffs!!!

Luncheon meat may be a bit too salty for the dog, you can always buy some fresh beef striple (wash thoroughtly and cook well for the started) to replace or to stuff.

Human go for different dishes every meal ... same go to doggies, make it exciting then ... only found out what is inside until the last dig Cool !!!

I read somewhere that u can use peanut butter to seal up the holes....smear some at the smallest part of the kong...do your stuffing and then seal up with more peanut butter.....dogs just love peanut butter!

hi hwong,

Refers: "The openings are quite big and normal dog food will simply fall out" , To stuff the black KONG would need a lot of food. Usually, I would put some washed pebble stones in there to fill up the KONG. (Mine is a KING KONG - Red ) , this also helps to prevent them from destuffing the food easily. Smile

Great advise. I have been using my Kong wrongly, by just putting a little peanut butter in there instead of stuffing it.

Axel even ignored the guests in my house when he was given his Kong stuffed with wheet germ, banana, kibble and boiled potato.

Leo,

The dog is suppose to bite unto the kong and squeeze out the content but the black Kong is very stiff and doesnt look like my dane is able to do it. So the food will likely remain lodged inside. I say this bcos I fill 2/3 of kong with biscuits and since they will simply fall out, I stuff a piece of LO TI Tau (bread) into it. The poor bugger could only get bits of the bread and just gave up and went for my plants!Mad Later my wife loosen up the bread but the rest of the contents got finished in no time and off again he went for the plants.Unsure I am contemplating making a sticky mix of varoius foods and maybe they will remain in there longer but he can still get to it.

I wonder how this will upset the diet of my dane if the idea is to keep him occupied and away from the plants. Since my Kennel is still not done!Mad and I dont want to chain him up or put him in the crate for long periods, I will need to give him multiple servings of stuffed kong.

So meanwhile my household is a din UnsureNO!, NO! NO!NO!. even then its when we see him in the act! My neighbours will probably go bonkers. One other neighbour's dog is an incessant barker from I suspect; prolong isolation and probably discomfort. I am thinking of writing a note to the owner. The barking can be very irritating.

Hi Boon, Good luck on the "KONG"!!! Cool



Hi Hwong,

Guess you may need to consider mixing some canned food into the KONG with less kibble, this way the stuffs would stay and needed to be dig out.

Stay cool Hwong, your Dane is still a pup Smile !!!

I would still go for the chain eventhough there is kennel run for it, this is something like a prastice that would let the dog get use when situation required.

Some behaviour correction needed over your Dane, may be you would like to start with using a choke-chain & leash and walk him into your garden ... give it a jerk if ever your Dane touch the plant with a firm "NO", and later you can get your wife or any of your family member to have this prastice done accordingly.

Good luck dude!!!

How To Use "KONG" indoors??? [In reply to] Can't Post

Has anyone tried to let the dog play with a stuffed Kong INDOORS? Was just wondering whether all the bits will fall out on the ground? Won't that dirty the floor?

The Kong website says to "seal": a stuffed Kong with peanut butter. When letting teh dog play with teh Kong, doesn't the peanut butter get smeared on the floor as well?

Also am worried that the introduction of a mishmash of goodie may upset my dog's stomach. DOn't want to have him suffering from diarrhoea...

As I am out at work most of the day, been trying to find toys to keep my dog occupied. Was thinking that Kong might be a v good idea. But may have to balance that against hygiene and cleanliness of the apartment. Any input would be v much appreciated. THanks! Blush
