Default Kong Recipes?

I hope I'm posting in the correct spot!

I was wondering if anyone has ever put something other than Peanut butter in their GSD's kong?

We crate Draco while we're at work, and my husband goes to let him out and play with him every day at lunch, so he's only in there 4 hours at a time. It also seems that Draco hates having a water bowl in his crate (he has tipped or disassembled every one we've installed!!). So, we're concerned about the salt in the peanut butter being too much for Draco but we think it would help him deal with the first 10-15 minutes after we leave b/c we think he tends to freak a little and then calms down.. That transition could be smoother, I think!

Thanks for any thoughts / ideas!

I use mashed banana in Shasta's Kong. She loves it! I freeze the banana if I want it to last longer and sometimes I mix it with a little peanut butter.

Carrots, chicken broth, beef broth, peppers, pieces of raw chicken/turkey/ etc (make sure the dog eats on VERY washable plastic or outdoors) kibble, treats, wet food, etc.

A GREAT way to fill the kong with liquids is to cover the small hole with a lot of P.B and freeze for an hour or two, small hole in a cup. Take the kong out of the freezer(still inside a cup) and fill. I cover the big hole with P.B too.

This way, even if you missed a little and it leaks, it is okay, its in a cup Put glass and kong back in freezer for 3-4 hours, more than good to go

I make these when I wake up at 3am and can't go back to sleep, then when I get back home from work surprise a filled kong she didnt even know was filled

EDIT: Wash the kong regularly

I mix plain Greek yogurt, creamy peanut butter and a touch of honey- then freeze it. Good stuff.

I mix canned food (considered a big treat in our house) with kibble and freeze it. Jack has allergies and this works as a motivating afternoon snack when he can't have much else.

These sound great! Thanks for the great suggestions! Draco isn't too picky with his food, but anything new is considered a huge treat.

Stosh - I may have to try that recipe for my own mid-day snack! Sounds yummy!

Awesome!! Thanks for the tip & link! I did a search before posting and didn't find much, but I'm still getting the hang of being on a forum. My DH is much better at this sort of stuff!!
