We recommend following the details below to get the most out of your Kong dog toy as most dogs need to learn to use them. Follow these steps to ensure your dog knows how to enjoy all the benefits of this popular toy.
1. Choose the correct size
It’s important to use the right size Kong so that your dog can have the safest, most enjoyable experience. When in doubt size up for the safest option.
2. Engage with your pup to ensure success
Get your dog excited about their new toy. Show it off and talk about it excitedly; maybe even play a little hard-to-get to pique their interest and show them what their new toy can do.
3. Stuff with treats of food to entice and extend playtime
Many dogs are motivated by food and Kong toys are perfect for stuffing with treats or kibble to keep dogs busy. The key is to begin with stuffing it loosely so that the dogs are rewarded when the food comes out of the toy easily. To further entice your dog, try using a little bit of peanut butter, cream cheese or their favourite treat in the Kong.
4. Freeze for a longer lasting and greater challenge
Over time, your dog will learn how to get treats out of the Kong quickly. To increase the challenge, put together a mixture of wet and dry ingredients, stuff the Kong and freeze it. A frozen Kong heightens the experience by creating a long-lasting, mentally stimulating task. This also provides added relief for teething dogs.
