Rated 1 out of 5 by DancesWithWords Horrible Chemical Smell :-(
I'm not sure what's happened to Kongs over the past 8 years, but the ones I've bought recently are nothing like the "old" Kongs that I bought in 2008 ... and still have!
The most recent one (red, XL) had a god-awful smell when I first opened the package, but I figured a run through the dishwasher would fix that. No such luck -- three weeks and many washings later, it still reeks with a nasty, chemical smell that just will not go away. It also feels much softer and less durable than the old Kongs. Speaking of which ...
... I have two smaller Kongs (large size), and both are much softer than the old original Kongs. In fact, the area around the large opening has become "frayed" and is peeling away; the surface there has turned into a sticky mess where hair and dirt are easily embedded (and can't be removed without literally peeling away the rubber). I actually threw away the black Kong (XL) when it became so sticky and "glue-y" that I couldn't touch it without having big black smears of the stuff come off on my fingers :-(
I have no idea what changes have been made to the Kongs over the years ... but they really should change BACK to the original design. This one's a pretty big FAIL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynne47 This product is awesome !!!!
My puppy loves gnawing away on her Kong, she is teething & I have put it in the freezer with mashed fruit( researched & only use what has been approved),and it soothes her gums & teeth so well she bounces right back to her normal active happy self. I recommend this item for all stages, it holds up so well I know it will last a very very long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarrEGriffin Classic, durable toy
I was looking for something that could help interest my in my newly adopted bullboxer pit in toys and keep him occupied chewing on a toy rather than random things he finds around the house, and I figured a Kong was the way to go! It's a classic toy that I knew Chewy would have, along with the treats designed for it, at a very competitive price. I've tried different treats, and this toy will keep my pup occupied for a little bit, while keeping him enticed with treats. It's easy to clean, won't damage my laminate floors, and doesn't make a sound that will scare him if it hits the floor.

This is definitely something that every dog owner should have. It is soooo easy to use and can stuff whatever treat you want. You can take training treats, biscuits, PB, cream cheese, broth, anything! And freeze it! It is an awesome thing to have! I would recommend to have a couple for rotations. For crates, while your dog lays on a towel after getting a bath, or even licks during training. Its awesome for giving your dog some busy work and also counts as enrichment!

We own a husky and he loves it... It also help with training, since he loves peanut butter.... Just fill it up and he will be very entertained (like where's my dog? Kind of entertained)
