I bought several of these ahead of time for a dog who had an orthopedic surgery with long recovery planned. They've been oh so useful. I make up a mixture of wetted kibble mixed with canned food and peanut butter, stuff the kongs and freeze. I reduce his meal amounts by the amounts I stuff into the Kongs. He gets one stuffed Kong after breakfast, and one in the evening. I remove them when they're emptied and give other items like smoked bones, yak milk chews, favorite crinkle toys, and lead walks, rotating this way so he maintains interest. It's tough with a long orthopedic surgery recovery ( 3 months) for a puppy, the Kongs are a real help with this.
Lasted longer than the bone....about 1 day. I only give to my dog for short periods when filled. 50lbs lab mix, 17months old. As soon as she got all the treats this time, she started chewing on the kong and in about 20 minutes this time, she began destroying it. She is. Ever left unattended with it and only short periods of time so this lasted for only a handful of sessions. Get the black.
I thought I would try the red kong to see if it would work for my dog. She had chunks out of it in less than 10 minutes. Looks like I should stick with the black ones that last about a month. Unfortunately I bought two other red kong toys, hopefully I can return them or I will donate them to the Humane society of manatee county.
I love these toys! My bully is a power chewer but also is very treat motivated. He loves it full or empty. He even completely empty Tucker smaller one out once he’s had enough. Once it’s empty he chew on them to help go to sleep. We have tons of things to stuff them with so it’s the best toy ever. Will definitely keep them around.
My new rescue dog is an enthusiastic chewer so I got her a couple of different Kong toys to try out. She's medium sized and rather anxious. She seems to find the black one too tough to enjoy (unless I put cheese spray and treats in it) but she enjoys chewing on the red one all by itself. Not sure how long it will hold up. Still waiting to see about that.
I have been trying to replace the original Kong I've had for years, but every size I have the hole is too small. I can squeeze a milk bone in the hole with peanut butter, but my dog can't get the bone out. I have to soak the Kong ball to get the bone out before it rots in there. This is the third one I've bought, but the holes are all the same size.
My small dog has a larger version of this toy which he chews on, but it's a little big to play with. This new smaller version is perfect for him! He carries it around and can toss it himself and retrieve it easily. He's really happy with it/ He is an 18 lb. Bichon mix. Thanks!
Our pup graduated from the puppy Kong and we ordered the next size up when the baby blue started to show age. However, we were very disappointed when our pup was able to chew right through the classic in 20 minutes. We followed up with Chewy to exchange the 2nd classic we ordered in the same order for the extreme but have yet to hear back.
The large classic kong is a classic indeed. I have 3 of these (and 1 black extreme kong). My dog has enjoyed the classic kong for a long time. They last and clean up easy, even after being stuffed with hard cheese to fill in small hole, plus plain yogurt, pumpkin puree, banana pieces, berries, a little bit of natural peanut butter and half a milkbone sticking out the end then FROZEN. My dog gets one every time I leave the house for a lengthy period of time and they keep him busy and happy and he loves running to get the empty one when I get home to show me it is indeed empty!
I bought this for my new 2 year old hound mix..he loves it..but it smells like chemicals and rubber combined..I am afraid to let him have this..will be making it disappear and will be contacting Chewy on how to either replace or get a refund..this is not a good product!
