Dexter and I are huge fans of using hollow, rubber toys and filling them with goodies and freezing them. This is a great way to keep a dog busy and a wonderful way for a dog to chew on the right things. I recommend using all dog treat, chew and dog food calories towards a dog’s daily caloric intake, in order to keep a dog lean.
Below is a low-calorie Kong Stuffing Recipe. This will fill more than one hollow toy. You can fill a bunch of toys and freeze, fill some doggy ice cube trays, or place some of the mix in glass containers and freeze for later. The options are endless.
If you need help teaching your dog to use a Kong or other hollow food toy, please read the article: Stuffing a hollow chew toy.
