    This sounds like something my dog would enjoy, however she would leave the apple behind.

  2. Becky says:

    Great idea — do know that apple seeds are toxic to dogs so be sure to get them all out. But very clever.

  3. Person says:

    Great idea!
    The design is great, but my dog just went ahead and ate the apple. ^-^

  4. Nichole says:

    What an excellent idea. Our dog just loved apples. I never thought to core an apple out and fill it with her favorite treat. Thank you.

  5. Lucy says:

    What a great idea!!! I am soooooo trying this out. Thank you so much for sharing! Lucy

    Maybe throw it in the freezer first, befor giving it to your dog. My dog would eat that apple plus filling in 10 seconds. The idea of a kong is to make it difficult for the dog to get to the yummy filling. 😉
