11 Kong Stuffing Recipes Your Dog Will Love

Here are 11 of the best kong stuffing recipes. My dog loved them, and so will yours!

I spent a whole day researching the best recipes. Then, I made them all to test them for you.

I spent the day in the kitchen today!

Most Kong recipes online lack clear instructions or exact ingredient measurements. I set out to fix that.

Kong’s come in different sizes. The following Kong stuffing recipes are for medium sized Kongs.

Use only half the ingredients if you have a small Kong. And, use double the ingredients if you have a large Kong.

Always check with your vet before adding new foods to your dog’s diet.

#1 – Banana Blast

Here’s all the ingredients you need for the Banana blast!

Ingredients for Medium size Kong:

  • ⅕ cup of yogurt
  • ⅛ cup of mashed banana
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter

Preparation:

  1. Mash the banana in a bowl using a fork
  2. Pour the yogurt into the bowl and mix with the banana.
  3. Stuff the mixture into the kong.
  4. Add peanut butter to seal the kong
  5. Freeze

Make sure to use plain, unsweetened yogurt and peanut butter in this recipe. Avoid peanut butter with Xylitol in it. We recommend freezing this as the mixture inside can be quite liquidey.

#2 – Simply Soaked Kibble

Ingredients for Medium size Kong:

  • A small amount of kibble
  • Water

Preparation:

  1. Soak the kibble in a bowl of water until it is nice and soggy.
  2. Stuff the soaked kibble in the Kong
  3. Freeze

To avoid overfeeding your dog, subtract the amount of kibble you add in this recipe from your dog’s diet that day.

#3 – Eggcelent Doggy Omelette

Ingredients for 2 Medium size Kongs:

  • ½ tsp olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • ⅛ cup of bell pepper
  • ⅛ cup of cheddar cheese

Preparation:

  1. Heat the olive oil on a low-medium heat in a small pan
  2. Whisk the egg and pour into the pan
  3. Scramble the egg
  4. Take it off the heat and let it cool
  5. Wash and chop the bell pepper
  6. Cut the cheese into cubes about ½ the size of the Kong entrance hole
  7. Mix the egg, pepper and cheese in a mixing bowl
  8. Stuff into the Kong

Only use a small amount of olive oil and ensure that the egg has cooled before feeding it to your dog. 

#4 – Double Cheese

Ingredients for a Medium size Kong:

  • ¼ cup of cottage cheese
  • ⅛ cup of cheddar cheese

Preparation:

  1. Cut the cheddar cheese into small cubes around half the width of the entrance hole of the Kong.
  2. Mix the ingredients together.
  3. Stuff into the Kong.

Mix the ingredients well. If some cheddar is too big or gets stuck together, it can be too large for your dog to get out. Also, avoid feeding too much cheese to your dog on a regular basis as it’s quite high in calories.

#5 – Meal in a Kong

Ingredients for a Medium size Kong:

  • ¼ cup of wet dog food
  • ⅛ cup of kibble

Preparation:

  1. Mix the ingredients together.
  2. Stuff into the Kong
  3. Freeze (optional)

This can literally replace an entire meal for your dog if you want it to. Make sure to deduct the ingredients from your dog’s regular diet so you don’t overfeed it. A 1:1 ratio of wet to dry food is about as low as you can go before making it too easy for your dog. Soaking the kibble beforehand and freezing it in the Kong will increase the challenge.

#6 – Paw Pumpkin Pie

Ingredients for a Medium size Kong:

  • ⅜ cup grated carrot
  • ⅛ cup apple
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree

Preparation:

  1. Cut the apple into cubes, around half with width of the Kong entrance.
  2. Grate carrot
  3. Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl
  4. Stuff the Kong

Make sure that the only ingredient in your pumpkin puree is pumpkin. Avoid sweetened puree.

#7 – Cheezy Crumbs

Ingredients for a Medium size Kong:

  • ¼ cup cream cheese
  • 1 tsp of crumbs from the bottom of your dog’s treat bag

Preparation:

  1. Mix the ingredients together.
  2. Stuff into the Kong.

This recipe is a great way to use those annoying crumbs at the bottom of your dog’s treat bag.

#8 – Peanut Butter Berry Mix

Ingredients for a Medium size Kong:

  • 6 blueberries
  • 1 strawberry
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter

Preparation:

  1. Wash the fruit

  4. Add the fruit
  5. Seal the Kong with the remaining peanut butter

Avoid sweetened peanut butter, especially if it contains Xylitol.
