Default Familiar toy for detection work?

Would it be better to use a familiar toy that Lisl already is crazy about for detection work, or introduce a new toy to use and keep her real play toys separate?

A Kong would be ideal to use because of it being hollow, but I do not know if using one of these for working and playing will be detrimental to her leaning to detect.

I already use it for other training tasks but they do not involve detection work.
