The Kong is supposed to provide mental stimulation. And it has. But we assumed it would be for the dog. Spurred by the success of le carrote avec beurre d'arachide we decided to get creative with two of Dempsey's favored toys and thus far - other than the cat's food - his most favorite ingredient.
1. Take a NylaBone puppy teething key and stick it in the jar of peanut butter -- make sure it's puppy's jar of peanut butter -- scraping off excess.
2. Stick the key in the "ignition" of the Kong.
3. Voila, a whole minute of peace and quiet while puppy figures out how to get the key out of the Kong to reap his reward! Ahhh.
