Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicholas Best Choice for Older Dogs (and Weaker Teeth) ! ! !
I have been buying Kongs for my best friend since he was a puppy.
He has ALWAYS loved them.
But a few years ago he stopped playing with the Kong.
He's 12 and he is an American Bulldog / Pit Bull Mix. He's in great health, just not as active as he was before. He has hip problems and some skin problems, but he still gets excited and loves to run around.
Anyways, he has always used the Red Kings until we found out about the Black Kongs (small rural town with one Pet Store).
He loved the Black Kongs.
Then he stopped using them because his teeth were getting weaker.
We switched back to the Red Kongs and then he recently stopped using them for the same reason.
I didn't know about these Kong Seniors until I found them here on Chewy (Chewy.com).
I was so excited to get one for him. When it got here, I filled it up for him and gave it to him.
I was so happy to see him playing with a Kong again.
He's happy, so I am happy.
As long as he's happy, that's all that matters to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by klafave greatest doggie invention ever
I made a mistake and bought the senior one instead of the puppy but it worked out perfectly. This is the greatest thing for dogs since fire hydrants:) I love that our little fur baby has to work at getting the treats out and it keeps him busy and not chewing on anything else. We used very small treats at first so that he could get the knack of how it works then added bigger pieces that he has to work for and he will chew on it for hours and leave the rest of our belongings alone.. whew! The directions recommend using something like peanut butter but our dog is the only dog on the planet that does not like peanut butter so we stick with the treats. I also don't like the mess that can be created using something like peanut butter on my brand new carpet. I absolutely love this Long and he will never be without one. I love how strong and sturdy they are and dont see having to replace them until he outgrows them. I would recommend this to anyone with a fur baby!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by doglover4 Not just for Seniors...
I have 3 Boston Terriers- very active chewers and I purchased the senior Kong because I wanted a little "Give" in the chew. It's very sturdy with a softer feel on the outside. My pups don't chew to destroy it they work on getting the treat out. Once it's empty I take it away. I pack it with a good quality canned food- keeps them busy. I've never tried freezing yet so may have to buy some more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happyrock Great distraction
I have three dogs and one Cairn Terrier is very hyper. I use this toy with a bit of peanut butter to distract him. It always works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HollysMom Great product – Tank loves his new toy
The softer rubber of the Senior Kong is perfect for my old man.
But, I messed up when I ordered and got the small…I did not pay close enough attention to the sizes and should have gotten a larger size Kong for my Beagle. He does OK with the small but a lot of the good stuff (peanut butter or cheese) gets stuck up at the top where he can’t get this tongue to. On my next order I am going to get a bigger one for him and donate the smaller one to the local Pet Shelter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chucklin5672 Great replacement for my aging dog
My dogs grew up with Kongs. We stuff them with kibble plus wet food and then as they've aged, included whatever meds they are on. This somewhat softer rubber still gives my small lab the exercise needed to keep her teeth strong and healthy while being a little gentler on her jaw. Our big guy also needs new Kongs, but they don't make a senior Kong in the xtra large size. Hoping the manufacturer will realize that larger older dogs also need a gentler product to chew on.
