KONG Senior Dog Toy
Just recently purchased this senior Kong. I bought the senior one because it was least expensive, I don't actually have a senior dog. I have two huskies 1.5 yrs and 9 months old. I have another Kong it's the black tough one but my boys never really chewed it so figured might as well not spend the extra $ on a durable one when I don't need it. I was suprised at the minimal difference between the extra durable kong and this senior kong. It was just as sturdy and just as thick but does have a softer finish to it. We fill ours with yogurt, PB and banana and freeze it. Works to keep my pups entertained when they have to be crated. Not happy that chewy sent me a purple one (since you can't choose colors) but oh well my boys don't seem to mind lol

My senior pit bull loves it
I recently adopted a senior dog and she seemed to not be much of a chewer. Every bone or hard treat I tried she just left on the floor. From day one she loved the kong sr, soft enough for her but durable. Great product!

great for freezing
My dog is not a senior but came to me with some broken teeth due to a presumably rough upbringing. These Kongs are flexible enough for him to chomp when frozen and extract all the filling. Just wish they were available in the extra large size.

Love this stuffing toy
I have 8 Kong stuffer toys in various sizes and I love them all! I stuff them with a mixture of banana, sweet potato and peanut butter and then freeze them. My 10 month old Lab puppy absolutely LOVES licking out every drop of the treat. She doesn't chew the toy afterward so I can get her the Senior Kongs (which are less sturdy than the other models). I usually get another one of these Kong toys every time I place my chewy order. It's great to have a bunch of them in the freezer ready to go!

Seniors (or limited teeth dogs!) need to play too!
My senior and my chi (with only a few teeth left) enjoyed being able to work for treats with this little Kong. I bought the small and extra small sizes.
The other dogs have their red and black Kongs and play for hours trying to get the treats out, and the older dogs felt left out and just could not handle the standard Kongs. Although the rubber on these is very sturdy too, (I was expecting something much more flexible), the two dogs did great with removing their treats and were occupied for a long time doing so.
These chew toys are wonderful for occupying a dog's time as well as providing a sense of accomplishment for them when they finally are able to remove the treat. It helps their self esteem and confidence.
For the larger dogs (who use the red and black Kongs like this), I usually fill with peanut butter and kibble (Natural Balance Vegetarian) or unsweetened puffed rice cereal (and peanut butter) and then freeze overnight. They will lick and chew for hours! Great for giving to the dogs when I am leaving for work and I want them to be distracted. Kong chews are very durable and we have several.

I wouldnt say it is any different than the Puppy Kongs. Actually more sturdy than the puppy kong. i have 3 dogs & had the blue-green & pink & needed another color & the purple was awesome choice. easy to tell them apart since 2 of mine are still puppies... Highly recommended & great value way less expensive than buying at the store & of course free shipping is a huge bonus!!!

Nice for all ages
My menagerie ranges in age from 10 months to 14 years. The Kong senior has attracted the interest of all of them especially when stuffed with a peanut covered biscuit.

great for my cats
I actually bought these for my cats to stuff their food in since the kitty kongs are too flimsy for my cats. These work great!stephers
