About KONG Classic
KONG toys have been enriching dogs for over 40-years, strengthening the bond between dog and pet parent along the way. The KONG Classic uses the KONG All-Natural rubber formula and is ideal for average chewing dogs.
Dogs Need to Play
A dog's physical and mental development are influenced by a healthy, instinctual need to play. Built for durability, KONG dog toys encourage play and offer enrichment, meeting this natural need to play.
KONG encourages dogs to focus energy on healthy engagement, helping prevent unwanted behavior by providing a mentally stimulating, physical challenge that keeps dogs occupied and mentally challenged.
Did you know that anything that is safe for a dog to eat is safe to stuff into a KONG? Here's how:
STUFF: Stuff loosely for beginners or tighter for more advanced users (w/KONG Snacks or your dog's favorite kibble).
ENTICE: Use a tasty appetizer such as KONG Easy Treat or peanut butter.
ENRICH: A stuffed KONG offers mental and physical enrichment.
EXTEND: Want to extend playtime? Freeze for a longer-lasting challenge.

Every dog that I’ve ever owned has enjoyed their kongs. I own several kongs and prepare them at the start of the week. It’s fun to experiment with different fillings (although I don’t buy the kong-brand filling as I’m told it’s unhealthy) and ramp up the difficulty by packing them more densely or freezing them. They offer mental stimulation and can also provide a great distraction. They get a bit gross if your dog isn’t super thorough or if you get the wrong size. I’m told a bottle brush would help clean out the leftover filling. I scape it out with my nail and then throw the kong in the dishwasher to take care of the slobber.
I purchased the Kong and the chew to put inside it. The chew is completely inaccessible for the dog regardless of how much she chews. So she's lost interest in the toy. I wanted the Kong and treats inside so she would have something to keep her busy for a good amount of time. Once the end is chewed off the treat there is no way to get at it, or break it up to eventually get the smaller pieces out. No bueno.
I put a chew inside of the kong and unfortunately the rubber is now splitting around the hole at the base. I have used kongs in the past and they have lasted well, not sure if it is this kong or that my dog is a much stronger chewer than past dogs. On the bright side, these chews typically only last an hour or two maximum, and the kong has made it last about 3 days, and still going.
A great and classic dog treat toy that holds up well. I do feel their size recommendations are off and would suggest you order a size up. I ordered 2 larges and they just feel so small and don't fit my dog's dinner. I also have an XL that fits 1 cup of kibble perfectly which is my preferred size for my dogs and has lasted for years.
This is the second KONG classic I have bought for my 80 lb pitbul. She is a tough chewer! The first KONG lasted well over 6 months, the new one is holding up just the same so far. My dog is the textbook definition for a tough chewer, so I don't expect all toys to last several months. But I am really pleased with the quality of this toy.
This version is great for most dogs. My 5 month old puppy has this toy in the medium size. She loves it, and so far it is standing up to her chewing. However, this small one was for my 8 year old dachshund. He only had it for 30 minutes, and this what he did. Apparently he needs the extreme one to stand up to his chewing.
I love these Kong toys! Our yellow lab pup is 9 months old now and she still chews hard on and plays with many of the Kong toys we purchased when she was 9 weeks old. Of course, now, we’ve had to replace some with bigger sizes.
I initially left a 1 star review after our little girl destroyed this in less than 7 days. Then I was informed about the money back guarantee. You have nothing to lose since you can get a refund if it doesn't hold up against your crazy, powerful chewer. Great customer service as usual. Thank you, Chewy!
I have a puppy around 6 months old. Has all her adult teeth and can destroy any toy in a matter of hours or days. So far this has held up like the other Kong rubber toys. Worth the money - she loves the way it bounces when she drops it - plays for hours with it
My dog, which is a 10 month old Maltese Shih Tzu breed loved this toy. We used the ZIGGIES Kong treats with the toy, and when they got too short, it would get stuck. After I showered, I went to go check on her to see how she was doing. I noticed that the toy was stuck on the lower part of her jaw. It gave her a panic attack because she felt uncomfortable with the toy trapping her tongue as my mom, my sister, and I surrounded her and tried to take it off. Her teeth was inside the toy with her jaw so we had to try and cut it loose. We took it off and she was panicking a lot and drinking lots of water.
