There might not be anything nicer for a dog then a superb treat that lasts and takes a bit of work as well. Frozen kongs are wonderful in general but also if your dog has had an op and limited mobility, or to keep puppies occupied. Try some of the recipes below. If you prefer not use to Kongs you can try hooves instead.
Good ingredients to mix and stuff at will are that tend to go down well: banana, blueberries, raspberries, goats yoghurt or natural live yoghurt, tripe, any type of mince. For adult dogs (NOT puppies) manuka honey, but any raw honey will do, is nice. Also if you are struggling on the offal front, mixing slivers of offal into your mix can be a great way of introducing it.
Feeding frozen kongs is TOTALLY safe!
