The magic of the Kong.

3059800422_015f4c45c4_bHey everyone.  I’m just sharing this article called “The Art of Kong Stuffing”.  It’s a helpful reminder of what a great tool the Kong can be.  I’ve had so many clients who’ve used it to help diminish separation anxiety,  but it can also be a handy tool for addressing other stressful situations for your dog.  Construction next door, the arrival of visitors, fireworks, etc.  Some of the recipes suggested for stuffing are pretty fancy, of course.  Pretty much anything your dog enjoys that can be stuffed in the Kong will work.  The additional reminder that freezing the stuffed Kong can provide a greater and longer lasting challenge for the dog is valuable.  Keeping a few stuffed Kongs in the freezer is a great idea for handling the unexpected.  Anyway, enjoy the article!

Now, to get it straight from the horse’s mouth, I recommend you visit Kong directly at this link:

Have fun!
