Peanut butter for puppies?

I keep hearing about putting peanut butter in kongs, etc to keep a dog occupied. Is it safe to give peanut butter to puppies? I have a 12 week old JRT, is that too young for peanut butter? Is there any particular kind or any ingredients to watch out for?

I think in moderation its ok. Dont fill the kong with half a jar of PB lol, but a tablespoon would be ok i would think. And freeze it. Last longer :thumbs up

Both my dogs LOVE Peanut Butter! Buster started getting PB and Toast when he was about 10 weeks old (a little piece of crust with a dab of PB). Now both Harley and Buster get toast and PB every morning.

Before I go to work, I put PB in Buster's Kong and then shove a little cookie in it. Not sure how long it keeps him busy, but he sure looks forward to it every morning.
