Dog food puzzles are great to keep our dogs’ brains sharp, but it can be a little tricky to find an interactive feeder that’s compatible with raw food, so here’s a quick hack for raw feeders in search of a dog food puzzle – simply fill a Kong rubber toy with ground meat, and pawlà, there’s your interactive feeder.
Stick It Into The Freezer For Extended Mealtime Fun
Stick it into the freezer for extended mealtime fun, and/or to cool your pooch off during the hotter summer/winter months, depending on the Hemisphere you find yourself in 🙂
Darwin’s Raw Lamb With Organic Vegetables
For today’s Kong filling, I used Darwin’s pre-made raw lamb with organic vegetables. Lamb is rich in zinc which is a mineral known for helping maintain a strong immune system. Darwin’s sources their lamb from Australia, New Zealand, and the USA.
I also order pre-made raw duck and chicken from them (and sometimes green tripe), and we’ve also tried their beef (equally good, but more expensive).
Ingredients: Lamb, Lamb Heart, Lettuce, Yellow Squash, Lamb Liver, Carrots, Broccoli, Zucchini, Parsley, Hemp Seed Oil, Celery, Calcium Carbonate, Dicalcium Phosphate, Cod Liver Oil, Inulin, Magnesium Chelate, Salt, Zinc Proteinate, Potassium Chloride, Vitamin E, Iron Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Thiamine Mononitrate, Vitamin B12, Iodine, Vitamin D3.
Dishwasher Safe Kong = Easy Clean Up
The best part about this raw food puzzle is hands down that it’s dishwasher safe. I absolutely love this about Kong toys, along with the fact that they’re made of natural rubber right here in the States.
While dog food puzzles are typically designed to be filled with dry dog food, hollow Kong toys make the perfect shell for ground, raw meat. Clean up is easy peasy because Kongs are dishwasher-safe.
Darwin’s pre-made lamb formula with organic vegetables made the perfect filling for Missy’s Kong, but any ground meat will work.
Kong toys are available for chewers of all strengths – they range from softer rubber for puppies and seniors to super durable rubber for strong chewers. Missy’s red Kong toy is perfect for moderate chewers.
