What do you put in a KONG for an 8 week old puppy?

Answered by Robert Dupre

When it comes to filling a KONG for an 8-week-old puppy, there are several options that can help keep them entertained and provide relief for their teething gums. One popular choice is to stuff the KONG with KONG Puppy Snacks, which are specifically designed for young puppies. These treats are small and soft, making them easy for your puppy to chew and enjoy.

Another option is to use KONG Puppy Ziggies, which are also specially made for puppies. These treats are shaped like little bones and can be easily inserted into the KONG. They provide a tasty and long-lasting chew for your puppy, helping to keep them occupied and satisfied.

If you prefer a different option, you can also use canned soft puppy food to stuff the KONG. Simply scoop some of the food into the KONG and seal it with a small amount of KONG Puppy Easy Treat paste. This paste acts as a sealant and helps keep the food inside the KONG until your puppy can work to get it out.

To make playtime even more enjoyable for your puppy, you can freeze the stuffed KONG. Freezing the KONG creates a cool and soothing sensation for your puppy’s gums, which can be especially helpful during the teething stage. Just make sure to use puppy-safe ingredients if you choose to freeze the KONG, such as the KONG Puppy Snacks or KONG Puppy Ziggies.

It’s important to note that while KONGs are a great tool for keeping puppies entertained, they should always be used under supervision. Monitor your puppy while they are playing with the KONG to ensure they are using it safely and not ingesting any non-edible parts.

When filling a KONG for an 8-week-old puppy, you can use KONG Puppy Snacks, KONG Puppy Ziggies, canned soft puppy food, or a combination of these options. Seal the KONG with KONG Puppy Easy Treat paste and consider freezing it for added relief for your puppy’s teething gums. Remember to always supervise your puppy while they are playing with the KONG to ensure their safety.
