If you have a high energy dog, or one that always seems to need attention, keeping them busy can be a challenge. Thankfully, the World of Angus team has come up with a great to keep your pup entertained and happier than ever!
The DIY Peanut Butter Apple Kong can provide minutes to hours of entertainment, depending on the size and chew level of your dog. Peanut butter is an excellent source of protein and fat, while apples make a tasty treat for your dog. This DIY treat is not only delicious and time consuming, but health conscious and easy to make!
This Is What You’ll Need
1/2 cup of All Natural Peanut Butter (no added sugars, sodium, or xylitol)
1 Green Apple
Sounds easy, right?
Using your apple corer, decor the apple. Make sure there are no seeds or sharp edges left in the apple, as these can be harmful to your dog.
Your apple should look like this!
Using a spoon, fill the hole in the apple with peanut butter. This may take a few spoonfuls, and the use of your hands. Don’t be afraid to get messy!
That’s All Folks!
This is what the end result should look like. If you wish, you can place the apple in the fridge or freezer to keep it cool, and harden up the peanut butter. This may help the treat last longer, and keep your dog occupied for more time.
You are now ready to treat your pup!
Remember, not all dogs like the same foods, and some may experience allergies to the ingredients used. Supervise your pup while he eats this treat to make sure he is safe and enjoying the snack. Limit his peanut butter and apple intake if you are concerned about weight gain. If your dog needs to gain a few pounds, feed him this treat once per day.
For dogs who have sensitivities to acidic food, replace the apple with a carrot, or less acidic vegetable.
