Kong 1 Sage 0

LOL! Usually I put just plain dry kibble in the kong. Doesn't take long for her to empty it. Tonight I mixed a touch of canned with the kibble and filled the Kong...It is way more challenging this way. Little yips and yaps coming out of the kitchen. She's a bit frustrated but not giving up...This is way funny!!!!1

I'll have to try the kibble with wet food!! I've tried yogurt with kibble mixed in, and frozen, as well as peanut butter! Gus will only eat the yogurt if you hold the kong for him! That defeats the purpose of keeping him busy!! And he didn't like peanut butter??!

Sage is adorable!

After all the peanut butter recalls last year, I'm reluctant to try it with her. But a smidge of canned really got her going. She was barking at it and rolling it around with her nose, she hasn't learned yet to trap it in her paws and lick...she'll get it soon though, where there's a will there's a way!

If you are reluctant to try peanut butter you can use sweet potato or banana.

Sheldon loves both

Our Toby is a digestive mess so I'm a little gun shy in introducing too many new foods to a young puppy like my Yogi. Plus, the peanut butter, banana and yogurt have calories and count against his kibble portions, otherwise he'd be gaining weight too fast. The peanut butter is too rich anyway. I needed something to slow Yogi down to prevent puppy hiccups from ingesting too much air. I did a search on the forum and one of the more respected members suggested wetting kibble down, then freezing it. I put a kibble in the bottom of the Kong (I'm using Large puppy kongs), then putting 1/4 cup of the kibble in it setting it in a stainless steel dish with a total of 3 of these things, taking a measuring cup full of water and wetting down the Kong, putting a tiny amount of Gerber Chicken Chicken Gravy baby food on top (a tsp?), then freezing. For meals I take the other 1/4 cup portion of his kibble in a stainless bowl, a big rolling treat ball similar to a Wobbler, but smaller, or in a Kong without a topper, plus the frozen 1/4 cup serving in the Kong. It takes him about 45 minutes to finish! Sometimes I'll add an ice cube to the top of the Kong so he must pull that out...he eats it first! Towards the end I need to help him get the frozen part out of the bottom (I use a skewer). He gets so excited when I go to the freezer now!

I'm trying to avoid introducing to many different things to Sage to soon too. I have read to many horror stories on here. Peanut butter just scares me! I think I maybe mixed a quarter or half teaspoon of canned Fromm with her kibble, put it in the fridge for a half an hour. Making up a few tonight and will freeze them, but thinking I may soak a bit of water in them too as she gets smarter and starts licking them too. With just plain kibble it doesn't take her to long and I would like to get about 30 minutes to get myself ready for work!

Does Yogi bark at his or ever get kind of frustrated. I noticed Sage would roll it around and then yip at it, and play pose and then roll it around some more. It's very cute to watch

Yogi yipped and barked at it in the beginning, but now he realizes he's got to work for his kibble and he gets right down the task at hand. He's a foodie for sure!
