Rated 4 out of 5 by Labbiemom Good overall, but wish it had lasted a little longer...
I have a lab who takes 'heavy' chewing to a new level. I found out just how serious of a chewer he was after I tried to give him a red Kong and he destroyed it within a day or so. After that I switched to the more durable black ones.
This bone was one of his favorites because it was relatively light, easy to carry and could be stuffed with fun treats. Although, I don't recommend stuffing the holes with peanut butter if you have a large dog because mine couldn't quite get his tongue in there to get between the little ridges.
It lasted a few months but had to be taken away when he pulled a large chunk off. He was able to get his teeth into the little holes and rip a sizable portion off the end. The toy was fine other than that so it got passed along to his little 'brother', a Pointer who is NOT as much of a chewer.
I would recommend this for heavy chewers under close supervision because it is not as thick and hearty as some of the other black Kong toys. I would love to purchase again if Kong made just a solid rubber bone without any treat holes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Workingdog No so Extreme
I believe it is good for 95% of aggressive chewers however my working dog has managed to split the middle and one end already and has had the toy for roughly an hour! The toy is still intact but it is only a matter of time before he figures out where to start pulling it apart. If the middle was more like a nyla with the extreme ends i believe this toy would live up to its name. In reference he has also started to pull the top off of a regular Kong Extreme. The only toy that has survived more than an hour is a large solid bone. Maybe i should just let him chew a tire and see how that works.

I've been debating about getting this KONG bone since Luna was 3 months old. She's almost a year now, and I finally bought it. Boy do I wish I had gotten this sooner! Luna loves to chew, play fetch, or try to dig out treats from this bone. It has so many uses! I can see it lasting for years, since so far there's been no way for her to chew through it. Putting a strip of jerky inside will have her trying to get it out for dozens of minutes at a time. A great investment!

This is Very heavy duty and durable. I have finally found something my dog can chew on that lasts. I am very pleased as usually she chews though her toys within a few times of playing with them and that is not the case with this one. She has had it for weeks now, chewing on it daily, and it is still fully in tact.

Rated 4 out of 5 by K9GSDS KONG QUALITY TOY
This was one of 4 KONG chew toys I ordered. The only reason I gave this product 4 stars is because I would prefer NO holes in the bone for inserting treats. It only provides an opening with thin edges for the dog's teeth to gain a good bite to begin destroying the product. Will have to keep an eye on what happens.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Baxter This product not what expected
This product is supposed to be for aggressive chewers and it didn't last five minutes of my dog chewing on the end. It broke immediately. I do not recommend this product.

My dog is a heavy chewer. He is loving this toy. I will buy more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kelley Great product!
I have a retired working dog who is a super hard chewer. The Kong Goodie Bone is perfect. She carries it around, plays tug-o-war with the other dog, and just plain enjoys gnawing on it. Because it is black (extreme) it lasts longer than other toys.
I have never put treats in the ends of the bone, so don't know how well that works.
