Veterinarians and trainers recommend stuffing Kongs with food and treats to keep dogs busy and deter misbehaviors.
This funny-shaped rubber is the perfect way to keep dogs active both physically and mentally. Legendary among dog lovers for their strength and durability, Kong toys are the answer to a busy pet owner's prayers. Without a way for dog to satisfy their natural instincts such as chewing, they can turn into a problem pet and become barkers, diggers, problem chewers, and even worse. Recommended by vets and trainers for dogs with separation anxiety, the Kong has a hollow interior that's ideal for stuffing with treats. Use peanut butter or soft cheese like glue to keep biscuits inside, and extracting the contents becomes a "hunt" to keep any pooch happy and busy all workday long. With an unpredictable bounce a pet can chase, fetch, and play for hours. Chewing Kongs even helps promote strong jaws, clean teeth, and general oral health.
Often imitated but never equaled, Kongs are made in the USA from a thick, flexible rubber that's non-toxic, non-splintering, and puncture-resistant enough to stand up to even the strongest jaws. This red Tuffy is appropriate for the smallest dogs, including miniature dachshunds, toy poodles, and Yorkshire terriers; size up (and/or switch to a super-durable black Kong) for aggressive chewers. Regularly inspect your Kong for cracks or missing chunks, and replace worn or damaged toys to avoid a choking hazard.
