I was thinking about how Felix got into my grandma's apples at her house... and thought about a neat idea for a treat.  He loves rolling apples around and playing with them, but I have read that apple cores (seeds) are not good for dogs.  So-
Get out your apple corer (i'll have to buy one!)
Core an apple and fill it with peanut butter or if you freeze it, yogurt, canned dog food, mashed banana and apple sauce- anything you can stuff a kong with :)
Or just leave it plain if you don't want a mess on the carpet... haha.

I will peel apples and then slice them and coat half the slice in peanut better to give them to Maverick and he really likes it..give it a try to see if she likes apple at all first before making an apple kong.

well I tried these treats and it sure was a hit especially after Phoenix realized she could eat the apple!
It kept rolling away on her though so she had to bark at it and hit it around a couple times before it would "smarten up" and "behave"

Hahaha!  Ain't it the truth!  Atticus frequently admonishes toys that don't behave!

As for apples, I don't think he actually eats them, but his favorite toy in the yard all summer and fall were the apples that fell in our yard from a neighbor's tree.  Mostly he just threw them around and chased after them though.

OMG this is a genius idea..love the pics of Pheonix! I just made one for Sadie and I can't wait to give it to her!! She'll love it, I gave her some apple and pb in her kong tonight and she ate it all up, so I'm sure she'll have some fun with her edible kong tomorrow night.

I know this is an older thread, but I saw it, tried it and Ziva LOVED it. I've now been telling anyone who will listen what a great idea it is. Love it! :)

I must greatly thank you for bringing this thread back to life! This is a great idea and I wasn't a member when it was active! I am definitely going to try this as soon as I get home! Cannot wait. I know Kiwi loves apple, but if I could get Diesel doing this I know it would keep her busy for hours! (Kiwi not so much... She takes all of two seconds to make it through anything, including once eating an inedible Nyla bone... -.- only edible toys for her!)
