Kong On A Rope
Dry dog kibble, appropriate Kong Toy, Rope. Take the rope, pull it through the Kong Toy and knot it. Hang this upside down from a tree, deck or post. The small hole should be facing the ground. Take the kibble and fill the Kong Toy. Make the toy hang just low enough
that it is out of your dog’s reach. The dog will spend hours trying to retrieve the kibble from the Kong Toy. At the end of the day, take the
remaining kibble and give to your pet as a reward. This is advanced work for your dog.

Layer Three:
carrot sticks, turkey or leftover ravioli or tortellini, Kong Toy (the larger the better!) Pack as tightly as possible. The last item inserted should be an apricot or piece of ravioli, presenting a smooth “finish” under the main opening.

In the mean time, check out her pet-friendly recipes here:   http://www.rachaelray.com/food_results.php?kID=72

Dog Biscuits – Really Simple ones to make
1 lb. ground chicken (or other meat)
1 tbsp. lite Italian dressing.

Prepare cookie sheet (9 X 13 seems to be the right size) with cooking spray
preheat oven to 200 degrees
mix ingredients together in a blender until well blended
spread evenly on the cookie sheet
bake for 2 hours, leaving the door slightly ajar so moisture can escape
flip and bake for another 2 hours with door still slightly ajar
cut and cool on a wire rack
store in fridge

The original recipe says to cut it into small pieces before flipping the first time, but I cut into quarters before flipping and then finish cutting when it’s done baking. You can cut them small enough to be training size too – Enjoy!
Admin Note:Just a Note. ~ ON A DEHYDRATOR As the strips start to dry after a few hours just remove the thinner ones that are dry and leave the thicker ones on longer.

 You can put them into small baggies in the freezer and take a bag out when you need to. Then you can them in very small pieces. If they are very dry they will survive being forgotten in a pocket for a week or so. A full batch on a dehydrator will last a long time. It is definitely a labor of love for all the cutting and the cleaning of the dehydrator afterward, but they are very healthy treats and not so costly as the “doggie junk food” in the stores.~
