I hand wash the toy in the sink. I do not use the peanut butter, but I would expect that to get on the couch and the carpet. Would recommend leaving the dog and the toy on a tile floor while playing with it.

Put a little bit of dishwashing soap and you can use an old toothbrush for cleaning the inside. Then let dry for a couple of minutes.
No, put the butter to the inside edges of the toy and give to them on the floor.

Clean the kong by running hot water into it. Use some soap if desired and rinse well. Yes peanut butter may drip, so use in a crate or kennel, or outdoors.

You can put a towel on the sofa first if you like or just put the dog on the floor. Peanut butter is stiff it does not run all over and they lick it up as fast as they find it. Put it in the freezer on hot days for a cool treat.

I use a bottle brush for baby bottles. I also use warm water and dish soap along with the bottle brush to get peanut butter out. It will drip on the sofa if you put solid PB in it, but if you put some kibble in first then the PB, the kibble will keep it from coming out!

kong toys are dishwasher safe, but I'd load them in the top of the dishwasher or turn off the heat dryer to avoid weakening the rubber. Peanut butter is best used in a crate or even better, outside!

Question

Kong Toys with lip at top

My pit bull always starts chewing the lip at the top of the kong toys and can complete destroy this toy in an hour. Could this be made without the lip. They are too expensive to not even last a day!

I don't know if there is anything, except the Nylabone (we used # 21920), that a pitbull cannot destroy. They have to chew and they have powerful jaws and teeth. It's there nature.

I've switched to the Star Mark Everlasting Fun Ball for Dogs.
http://www.petco.com/product/108788/Star-Mark-Everlasting-Fun-Ball-for-Dogs.aspx?CoreCat=OnSiteSearch

My dog destroys any toy it gets, but can't destroy this.
It's a treat dispenser the size of a tennis ball. It squishes like a tennis ball, but looks like new after 5 months. This also does clunk onto the floor, nor is it so heavy as other brands. It has no lips or flanges for my dog to rip off. This has also helped my dog eat more slowly. He is a food bolter, so this is helping him quite a lot!

Now ordering another for our new dog, and a couple for Christmas presents.

I would get the red kong if your puppy has already conquered the puppy kong. It's not going to get any better. this is the first toy that my dogs haven't torn up as of yet.

My 17 week old puppy has made shred marks in both the small red and black Kong. I think their teeth are just that sharp and we'll both need to buy a few Kongs while our kids are young. I think I bought the "small" and while it's the right size for her mouth, I am seriously considering replacing it with the medium (2.25" L X 2.25" W X 3.5" H) or Large (2.75" L X 2.75" W X 4" H) Black Kong and see what happens. Good luck!

DO NOT continue with a toy that your dog can chew up. If you do, you will wind up paying a vet a couple thousand dollars to open her up and get the pieces out.

Question

How do I keep the treats in it?

I have those Pupperoni treat sticks, which I can break up, but I cannot seem to get them to stay in.
Everyone says that I can use any brand of treats or dry food that I like, but they fall out, even when I push them in all the way, nearly smashing them.
Also, I have either the smallest or second to the smallest sized one, the opening is about 1 inch in diameter.
Any suggestions?

Try adding some peanut butter and freezing them overnight. The point of this toy is meant for your dog to eventually get the treats inside, but to help delay that eventuality, try something like peanut butter and throw it in the freezer.
