What size Kong do I get for a Cavalier please and what do I put in it?????


12th January 2007, 03:52 PM
I would say small - kosmo has a medium and his little tongue can't get inside of it all the way..

as for stuff to put inside - i put some organic peanut butter, carrots, peas, green beans, and kibble.. sometimes i will spread a few treats out inside of it to really make him work but in general it's usually peanut butter carrots and a bit of kibble (subtracted from his daily food intake)

Good luck claire L.. i'm going to throw a party for you tonight. :)

I would also agree with Sara, I would get a small I saw these one's and I really like them as they look a bit different and a bit easier for them to get the goodies out. Of course this site does not ship to Canada/Britain but I haven't looked in the stores for them but I will as I really like them.

As for what to put in them, I used to always put pure pumkin with liver(Benny Bullies crushed up and freeze it and give it to them in the morning)

The Peanut butter with Kibble is good like Sara said, Also a bit of cheese with some Charlie Bears.

Small Healthy treats, even a few Human Cheerios providing no wheat allergy is present.

I am so excited for you, pics right away. :D :D :D :D :D :D

I don't know! have a look at her pic in the breed and rescue section


12th January 2007, 04:06 PM
It is hard to tell from that tiny picture, can you not call and ask them to measure her.

I would say a medium if not a large.
The large you could always have on the smallest setting.

When are you getting her. ???????

Hubby is doing the driving,otherwise we'ed never make it :roll: I'm useless at following directions and I can't drive with my back the way it is right now -I'd probably kill someone!!

Going to get a Kong now :D


12th January 2007, 04:29 PM
How exciting!

Oh Claire , I hope your pain vanish the moment you see your little baby!!!

She is a beauty and is very very lucky to find you!

12th January 2007, 05:10 PM
Claire - I am beside myself happy for you!!

I will check in this weekend for pics!

12th January 2007, 05:16 PM
oh so excited that you are picking Penney up tomorrow :D :D :D

I tend to give mine the medium sized Kongs, but Rupert and TedBear are both quite big Cavaliers. They did however fit into a medium Puppia...

I have a couple of spare Puppias if you want to borrow one?

12th January 2007, 05:55 PM
I am so very happy that you are picking up Penny. I hope she helps make your back feel better. We'll all be anxiously waiting to hear how it goes.

How wonderful, I have a feeling you will be just right for each other. You've waited so long for this and I'm sure she will make you really happy. Hopefully she will distract you from the back pain or at least cheer you up :D Hope she doesn't pull on the lead! :dogwlk: Have a lovely time tomorrow and please send pictures of you both together when you can drag yourself away from Penny! I like her name, I used to have a Siamese cat called Penny.

I bet you'll be well on your way by the time I'm writing this. Good luck.

13th January 2007, 11:13 AM
Claire hopefully you're on your way to pick up Penney by now!
We're all waiting for the photos etc. :flwr: :D

As regards the kong, I got Tandie the large one by accident, and she manages it no problem at her age but it took her a good while before she worked up the dedication to chew on it. She wouldn't chew on anything at all, even pigs ears, until Dougal came and now she's turned into destructo Tandie and is chewing everything!! :lol: You might be better off starting Penney with the small or medium, or kong have great treat products that the treats are easier to get out of which might be better to start her off on. (though to be honest Tandie wouldn't even chew on these until, like I said, Dougal came! Then she was into them all straight away)

Anyway, I stuff the end with a little bit of chicken (or turkey as it has been lately) or fish like tuna or sardines or tripe and I do a layer of kibble from her daily ration, another layer of nice stuff, another layer of kibble and stuff the end with the nice stuff. We really pack it in and she get's over an hour out of it. :D

It sounds like everyone is on pins and needles waiting for you to collect Penny. Your experience in adopting Penny has touched us all. I can only imagine how relieved you will be to finally get your girl home and settled. My thoughts and best wishes for you and your husband on your trip. Please let us all know how things go for you. :flwr:

We have a large kong, because it was bought for Monty and anything smaller would have been dangerous (they can get jammed sideways across the back of the mouth if too short). The others have managed to carry it ok and if you use it to stuff it wouldn't need carrying anyway, so bigger is a safer bet. How about one of the prurple flying saucers; more hygienic as you can open them to scrub clean ?

13th January 2007, 12:51 PM
Mine could do with an EXTRA, EXTRA large Kong... especially Ellis!

Jammed full with breakfast it gives me heavenly peace! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Good Luck Claire, safe :drivecar: journey, thinking of you xxx
