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.

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!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kats4Labs This is great for our senior dogs
I don't find too many toys the dogs can't chew apart but even this lighter and more flexible Kong toy, they haven't been able to chew apart.

My 11lb. dog is 1 yr. old and a gentle chewer (plush toys last indefinitely for us).
I had been purchasing the puppy kong toys for him because the regular, red variety was too tough for him. I gave the senior variety a try because it was a few dollars cheaper. He LOVES it. The texture is challenging but not impossible for him. He has a fun time (and I get some quiet time for myself).

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 3 out of 5 by ajSchnauzerMom I had to prep this before use...
These have a horrid smell. Rancid to me. I called the Kong company and they referred to it as a "smokey" smell. The smell repelled my dogs and I was advised by Pam at the Kong Company to soak them in vanilla extract and water overnight. I did do that and my dogs would accept the Kong with peanut butter and their treat inside.
