Day Seventy Seven – What’s a Kong?

Kong

In one of the comments, Kathy mentioned that she gives her ‘baby,’ Molly a Kong.  In case you don’t know what a Kong is, Kong is the name of the company that makes a very durable chew/play toy for dogs, it is also the name of one of the products.  The Kong comes in a number of different sizes and strengths so you have a variety to choose from.  When Sampson was small he had a puppy Kong, as he got older he graduated to an adult Kong.

Here is an adult size Kong.

The bottom of the Kong has a hole in it.

Filling the Kong

You fill the bottom of the Kong with any number of treats, or you can simply fill it with peanut butter or cream cheese.  I like to put a few little dog treats in it and then smear it all over with cream cheese.  You can also put the Kong in the freezer if you have a little puppy who is teething.

This is a Kong that has the cream cheese filling the bottom.

WHY?

I gave the Kong to Sampson when I left the house, the reason I did this was to try to make sure he didn’t have separation anxiety.  When we got Delilah, I got another Kong.  I used this in the beginning with them, but now I just hand them a treat and they are fine.  The great part about the Kong, is that it is made of rubber, so it bounces.   The dogs can really have a fun time just playing with the Kong.
