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!!

THE PRODUCT WAS JUST WHAT I EXPECTED. SHE PLAYED WITH IT WHEN I PUT IN DRY FOOD. SHE IS GETTING TOO OLD AT THIS POINT IN HER LIFE TO PLAY A LOT SO WE DON'T USE IT VERY OFTEN. STILL RATE IT A 5 STARS.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kreppy The product was what we wanted for our dog.
Our olerish chocolate lab has shown less interest in chewing toys so we tried this one. I use it as an away toy only. I fill it with peanut butter and "cookies", freeze it and give it to her when we all leave for the day. Our younger retriever loves his too. He has the Extra large for dogs over 75lb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrChris 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NCMountains DO NOT BUY THIS!!!!!
I bought a small kong for my Boston Terrier mix. In one week he has chewed the top right off the thing! I don't know if he has injested it or if it is outside somewhere. I hope outside. DO NOT BUY THIS for your dog. It is not indestructable as advertised. I also bought one for my big dog, but no way is he getting this now. A total waste of money and I won't ever buy another one. My little guy is wondering where his toy is, but it is in the trash!!!! Such a disappointment for him and me.

My Lab mix usually tears toys apart. This toy is strong and I see it lasting a long time. I like that it makes my dog work for his treats!
