I have noticed that the Kong products I have gotten this year aren't as durable as the older ones I had for about 4-5 years ago. They seem to be using a softer plastic which makes it easier to get pieces off. My dog chewed one of the triangle points off the large end in the second use. She is a pit bull and the old modal of this lasted 2 months before I decided she could get bits off. I use this to put the bully stick in the large end and slightly ( 1/2 an inch- maybe more, too much and you will need plyers to get it out!) into the neck of the toy. This allows me to let her chew unattended as I know if I have pushed it in well she can't get down to a small piece of bully stick to swallow. Once she gets to Kong part I pull out the bully stick and let her have stick for about 5 min (gets to smaller size that needs to be thrown out) This works well for me for the bully sticks for safety.
Disappointing. I purchased without hesitation because I have always loved the durability of our other Kong toys. I do have an aggressive chewers, but the other kong toys we have have stood up to him. He broke pieces off of this one in the first 5 minutes. Not recommended for large dogs or aggressive chewers. It did say that on the packaging, which apparently I should have read. However, I purchased it based on the Kong name, without reading the fine print. My mistake. It's definitely not made from the same durable rubber that their other products are made from (their fault).
Bought for a Border Collie. I like these toys because they have the right size opening for the treats I give my dog. They provide a game and still fall out occasionally to keep them interested. However, this one my dog was interested in the skinny top part and in less than 3 hours had started to splinter it and I had to take it away for their well being. I didn't think she was such a chewer, but she did so I'll be finding another one.
I bought this for my 4 mo Lab puppy. I do have quite a few kong toys and use them on a regular basis but the rubber on this one is not as sturdy as the older toys. I did end up taking this one away from him as he bit pieces of the top off after only an hour of play time. I suspect I'll find them - in a day or so 🙄
This is the THIRD one I've bought for my Min Pin. I put the treats inside and it keeps him busy for awhile. He runs with it in his mouth, then lays on his back and holds it like a baby bottle!
We have used the Genius Leo Kong toy for many years and our dogs really like them. It is one of a variety of interactive toys that we rotate to mix things up. Our dogs have a frozen regular Kong for 1 meal and day, and for the other meal we rotate a variety of puzzle toys we fill with kibble. They love to eat and the challenge of mixing it up slows them down. Chewy is the only place I can find these. So glad to be able to replace a couple old ones.
I have bought other Kong products in the past and not been disappointed. I have Rat Terriers. They are pretty heavy chewers, so I thought this Kong treat dispenser would hold the same as the others. Nope! I turned my back for a few minutes only to find she had completely chewed the neck off of the dispenser! The composition of the material does not appear to be as heavy duty as the red Kong treat dispensers. If your dog is a heavy chewer, I would not recommend.
Within 10 minutes my tiny 10 lb. Dog had chewed the rim partially off. I cut the neck of the toy with scissors and still can use to carry peanut butter as a lure into his playpen when I leave him.
What to do? We purchased this, and what to do? Apparently you need multiple to connect for a toy. Totally disappointed.
One of my dog’s favorites treat toys. He is not a chewer but loves to squeeze the toy with his jaws which dispenses treats.
