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.

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.
I recently ordered another Kong (wobbler) size Large for my 50lb dog and chose large again as the sizing suggested in the diagram and it's almost laughable how small it is. There is no way this is adequate for a 35-65lb dog. For a truly large dog I'd go all the way up to the largest size. For a medium-large dog I would get XL, large would work for a 10-15lb dog.
I love this product for my hound mix (and other dogs) however according to the size chart, this is his appropriate sized kong. Way too small for him. Unfortunately this kong will go to a small dog sibling of his and I will be ordering a new larger one for him. Great toy to keep him busy with snacks when in his crate but watch sizing when ordering!
When we put a treat in this thing, the dogs fought over it till the treat was gone. Then they ignored it. It's the second time we've tried a Kong. The first time, the dog cared so little for it that we forgot we had one. I'm sure it's a fine product -- if your dog likes it.
I just adopted a dog from the shelter and she loves to chew. I got 2 of these, 1 for her and 1 for my male dog. Made them a little treat inside of it… My new girl was able to rip this toy into lots of pieces within an hour. For the price you pay for KONG toys I feel like it should last way over an hour… Went with some bully make toys which are still all in one piece; for not that much of a price difference. I wish I would have kept it to attach a photo, but I picked up all the pieces and it went straight in the trash.
The Kongs are great for medium size dogs but when it comes to the large size dogs they do not last at all I'm going to tell you that they only lasted an hour and were ripped in half with the large dogs believed to be mastiff Great Dane mix
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.
Bought two of these for a mastiff and bull dog. I stuff them with either peanut butter or yogurt and then freeze them. Keeps my dogs busy for a very long time. All the effort wears them out as well.
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.
