Advantages: Handy packaging and dogs like it. Doesn't smell too strong
All of my dogs love their kong and while I do usually make the filling from something basic like peanut butter or cheese, I recently decided to buy a few cans of the kong paste - mainly out of curiosity but also because I thought that my dogs would appreciate a few new and different flavours to try. If I hadn't of had an eBay discount voucher I would probably only have purchased one as these are pretty pricey at an average of £5.00 per 226 gram bottle. Prices vary depending on where you buy it from and they are very widely available.
The paste comes in a medium sized aerosol type can which is quite eye-catching due to the bright pictures and branding on the front of it; there's the brand and product name as well as a cartoon picture of a dog and a kong. The picture varies depending on the flavour of the paste. Information such as how to use the product, safety warnings, ingredients and so on can be found on the back of the can. The manufacturers claim that each can contains 45 teaspoons worth of product, which I feel is quite a lot and it makes the price seem a little less expensive.
There are various flavours available including lamb, chicken, liver and peanut butter. I decided to buy two of the chicken and one of the lamb as peanut butter is something that my dogs already have quite often in their kongs. There are also special puppy and senior versions of this but as my dogs are all over the age of one and under the age of eight I opted for the 'normal' versions. Getting the paste out of the can is really easy and quite unusual for a dog treat - it is just like whipped cream kind of can and you simply press down and the smooth paste will come out It is a really good idea and much quicker and less messy than spooning the paste into the kong.
I was expecting the paste to smell quite strongly but the smell isn't too bad. It's strong enough for my dogs to instantly be able to smell the minute that a bit is squirted into the kong though and they go mad sniffing and trying to get it out - it keeps them busy for around 25-30 minutes which is handy because I don't have much spare time to spend entertaining them now that I'm a mummy. I usually fill the paste into a kong but it's also good in hollow bones and empty cow hooves. It can be also used in the grooves of a kong dental toy.
Although I had hoped that each can of this would last for a while, I've already used up one can of it in under two weeks, so this definitely isn't great value for money, especially if, like me, you have more than one dog. Overall, this paste is really good and I do highly recommend them. I give them four out of five stars - I've knocked one star off because of the price.
