I like to use Peanut Butter, and freeze, or get the cheese in a can and put that in there and freeze. For young pups that are teething I will close the small end up with peanut butter fill halfway with water, and then seal with peanut butter again. They all seem to love this.
Incidentally, never leave a GSD alone with that stuffed Kong. I was watching TV and heard a loud POP!! sound. I looked over, and my GSD had bitten the Kong into two halves! The Kong was the name-brand, not a knock-off, and it was not faulty nor splitting along a seam... it split with an upper and lower section seperating. My dog was 14 at the time-- a senior!
Geez Patti, what were you feeding your senior super strength food? LOL
You could try using frozen chicken broth as well. Patch up the small hole end, and fill with the broth. Put it in the freezer over night (or until frozen) and then give to the dog. They will just lick it over and over until they get to tired. Its like a chicken lolipop! We do this with icecubes too. Freeze a ice tray with chicken broth in it to give to the dogs as treats on occasion.
I like to stuff peanut butter slathered dog biscuits into the Kong sideways...(the peanut butter acts as a mild glue). You know when the peanut butter is about gone...when Pal starts dropping the Kong on the floor to jar the biscuits loose. He's got it all figured out, just takes it awhile. Any other ways I can try to make it more frustrating for him?
Unique things you have trained your dog to do, and how you did it... Things that are not part of traditional obedience but friends find amazing!
I have taught my dogs that they are only allowed on the main floor of the house. Not upstairs, not in the basement. No gates no doors. I...
Hi - for our first dog we were looking at a German Shepherd but instead got a Golden Retriever.
1) We didn't get a GS because of my 7 year old son. He is all of 50 pounds and is a rough but loving kid -- he rolls around with the Golden Retriever, plays keep away and runs around the house with...

So my GSD is 2YO, had her since she was 5 months old, the entire time I've had her she has never been a barker, to the point where i go months without hearing a single bark. The most she does is whine when she wants togo outside or hears my neighbor who she loves. The rare times she does let out...
Hi everyone! I really enjoy reading this forum and it’s been so helpful in just the short four days we’ve had our little pup. Sheba is 8 wks old and was only 4 lbs when we got her...basically a rescue. Poor thing had lice and worms and itched like crazy but has gotten so much better since we got...
