The Kong Show
Does everyone have these? It’s like this rubber toy with a well in the bottom where you stick treats, cheese or peanut butter, whatever. According to their website, a stuffed Kong is recommended therapy for prevention and alleviation of bordom for dogs as well as seperation anxiety. A stuffed Kong will keep dogs busy and content while home alone.
We tried buying a kong for the Poley back when we first got him, about a year ago, and neither of the pugs seemed to care about it. They would lick it a few times, and then give up. Well, we decided to try it again the other day and the two of them went NUTS over it.
So now in the morning, I get the Kong out of the frig (they like it cold) and stuff it with something handy, usually peanut butter, then I toss it to the dogs as I leave in the morning. Trust me, they don’t even notice me slipping out anymore. What a fabulous invention! Does everyone else use these?
