Dogs are a lot like children, you can buy them a bunch of toys and they will only play with a few of them. Certain dogs like certain toys, and Kong has been a great company for finding toys that your dog will love. Personally, our dog loves to drip apart stuffed animals, and if it has a squeaker in it, that toy will only last a day or two at most… if not just a few hours. For this reason, Kong has been a great choice for when it comes to buying new toys for our dog. Below are a list of some of the Kong products that our dogs and many others have loved.
Kong Classic Rubber Toys
The original Kong toy is their line of rubber hollow toys which you can stick treats into. If you find the right sized treats, your dog will be busy for a while trying to get these out. In addition to your own snacks or cookies, Kong also created their own line of Kong “Stuff N Spread” that comes in a whip cream like bottle, that allows you to shoot a pumpkin or meat flavored cream inside the Kong. Whether you are using cookies, treats or Kong spray, you can be sure that your pet will stay busy with this long lasting toy that is made of rubber, so it will not break and cause your dog to choke.
Kong Plush Toys
As mentioned earlier, when it comes to plush toys, my dog will do anything to try and get the squeaker out, and she usually can destroy the squeaker inside of a plush toy within a few hours. I recently bought her a Kong plush toy through BarkingDeals, which sells Kong products for 50% off every once in a while. So my dog did destroy the squeaker within two days of playing with the plus toy, but the physical toy is still in great condition and she loves running around with it and chewing on it.
Kong Wubba Wubba Toys
The silly toy, with a silly name. We first got our dog a Kong Wubba Wubba toy a few years ago, and it’s still in nearly the same condition as when we first got it. It’s not one of her favorite toys, but it still squeaks and is fun to throw around and play tug of war with. The original line of Wubba Wubba toys were plain and sturdy for rough play, but they have now expanded to line to animal plush versions as well, which may interest more dogs. Once again, it’s all about the squeakers!
These are just a few of the great products that Kong has created for dogs and their pet owners. You can view and purchase the products we listed and many more, at your local pet store or through online pet stores like Petco and PetSmart.
