My miniature poodle is fed dry food but I have been putting chappie in her kong
Like many poodles she has delicate digestion, also has anal gland trouble
On the days she has someone with her all day so no kong she is fine. Good solid poo so no anal gland problem and poos fine
when she has wet food she is loose and spends ages having a poo
Peanut butter is terrible, it makes her poo the same consistency as the peanut butter
She doesnt love the dried food even though it is good quality so that wouldn't work in the kong

I use the dry food soaked and mixed with something yummy. Bit of pate or some sardines/tuna are the favourites here. Or primula, but that might upset your dog as cheese can be difficult for them to digest
Wainwrights wet food in all flavours is also popular here. Again, just a little bit mixed with soaked kibble to give it a nice flavour. it's good quality and hypoallergenic, so might work well

I mix his normal dry food with some live yoghurt which is really good for their tummies.

Dry food and a bit of sausage for challenge.

Our dogs enjoy carrot or apple, large piece wedged in the kong so they have to work to get it out.

I wedge half a Dentastix in the kong for our dog. It keeps her amused for ages. Just wondering if you normally feed her dry, then suddenly switching to wet will upset her, you may need to introduce it a little at a time.

Royal Canin Canine Sensitivity canned is really sticky and will stick up inside for ages if you pack it in with a spoon. The feline version even more so and shouldn't do any harm.

blank, do you leave a bit sticking out or put the whoe stick inside?

Got to be something on this list that's ok.

I'll try again, sorry.

I get cheapest mackerel fillets and whizz them up with cheapest cream cheese, and smear that inside the Kong, then put in some kibble. Hours minutes of ecstatic Kong-bothering.

Wet cat food, freeze it.

peanut butter and dog treats.

DaddysBigTummy Sun 16-Feb-14 11:37:14

I put cooked pasta in mine and then freeze them. Some kong paste or peanut butter over the top to seal it all in. How about using a bit of Primula cheese if peanut butter upsets your dogs tummy?

LucyLasticBand Sun 16-Feb-14 11:37:15

you cna put milk in and freeze it.

My dog only likes the Kong biscuits. I have tried many other fillings but she doesn't like them. She only gets her kong when we are leaving her for a longish period so they are worth the expense.

SauvignonBlank Sun 16-Feb-14 18:23:27

Damearly, I generally break a Dentastix in half, the shove it in, really hard, maybe pushing it against the corner of the worksurface to get it in. Nothing poking out, so that she has to chew really hard to get it out.

Small kong and 2 Hill's T/D biscuits (big kibble dental dry food) wedged inside.

Peanut butter!

Peanut butter in the house, because it doesn't make me sick. Or yoghurt or cream cheese. Freeze it for extra durability.

Jemimapuddleduk Mon 17-Feb-14 12:10:26

Peanut butter or Philadelphia

excitedmummytobe Mon 17-Feb-14 16:21:37

My dog has some of her dried food in a kong which I fill up to the top with homemade liver cake.

Other fillings seem to give her an upset tum
