The Kong Classic has been the gold standard of dog toys for over 36 years. The super-bouncy, red natural rubber compound is unequaled for dogs who like to chew. Stuffing healthy treats into a KONG keeps dogs happily working and out of trouble for long periods of time.
Chewing satisfies dogs’ hunger, exercises their jaw muscles, and keeps their teeth and gums clean. Depriving dogs of natural hunting drives can result in serious behavioral issues including excessive barking, destructive chewing, soiling, digging, and separation anxiety.
Kongs are widely used for therapy and for the prevention of boredom, separation anxiety, and other behavioral issues. Regular use of Kongs can also improve oral health. The unpredictable bounce of Kongs lures most dogs into a game of chase, catch, and chew. The hollow center can be filled with food and treats—a dab of peanut butter spread around the inside is very effective.
PREVENTION IS THE BEST CURE FOR BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS.
Important Behavioral Tips:
Put Your Dog to WORK!
Providing food- and/or treat-stuffed Kongs for your dogs can keep them contentedly busy (working) and out of trouble for long periods of time. Add more stuffed Kongs to increase their work time. Note: Adjust bowl feeding as necessary to maintain a healthy diet.
