Pooches: Ultimate Kongs
One way that we have been trying to minimize Mr. B's isolation distress is giving him and Ms. M a Kong filled with treats before we leave. This has helped a lot and definitely keeps them occupied while we are gone. To make this ultimate Kong, I spray aerosol cheese or add peanut butter at the bottom of the Kong and then throw in less than a handful of dog food. Then I add bits of salmon skin, jerky treats, biscuit treats, and string cheese. Finally I block the top off with a biscuit and then spray some aerosol cheese or add peanut butter on top. To make the Kong last for more than a few minutes, I make about 6 days worth of ultimate Kongs and then freeze them. The freezing is key to making the Kongs last awhile.
