Rory always chews in a certain way when his tummy hurts. It's really frenzied. He also eats novel items, he sucks them repeatedly until they are sloppy then swallows them whole. I have to keep an eye on him. I know what he's up too
I used to do that for Sky (following @Boogie’s idea). It worked well for her as a senior dog and was quick but the wet food one is just as quick and can take 30 minutes for Red to empty.She has beakers that the Kongs fit into. She fills them with dry kibble, then fills the beaker with water. Once the kibble has swelled up, she drains the remaining water and pops the Kongs in the freezer. No effort, no mess!
@Jessica I learnt this early on in my forum life, I can say too that it works a treat and is very easy and mess free.
I bought Joy a Yak chew when she was a Veryvery bitey and chewy pup. The lad in the shop said that if I microwaved it, it would last for days. I did, and it was gone in half an hour so I didn't get another one!I have bought some yak chews for the girls for Christmas (shhh... don’t tell them!!) as they’ve been recommended by my friend. No idea yet whether the girls will be interested in them!
I believe that when they get much smaller, you can put them in the microwave and they will puff up and the dog will be able to just crunch the rest of it!
Never tried it but my friend says it works so will be interested to see how it goes.
Sounds remarkably like my system!I used to do that for Sky (following @Boogie’s idea). It worked well for her as a senior dog and was quick but the wet food one is just as quick and can take 30 minutes for Red to empty.
Meant to say @Jessica - I always pick the empty kong up once finished and hold it under fast running hot water. Any missed bits come straight out. I then leave it on draining board for a bit, then place on the windowsill sideways on. At the end of the day there are 3 there, ready to be filled again the next morning for the freezer. I have 6 altogether so there are always 3 solid frozen ones at any point
My hands are often stinking of tripe after being at work. No matter how many times I wash and scrub my hands... the smell lingers onI have to say I don’t use the mess-free approach with my lot. I use my hands to stuff smelly crap in
