Get smart about training with the KONG Training Dummy. This highly visible foam dummy is a great toss-and-retrieve toy that teaches dogs to use a soft-mouth carry. The Training Dummy floats for use in water or on land.
Tough and sturdy for long-lasting training or play

KONGs are easy to keep clean and top-shelf dishwasher safe. Caretakers should regularly examine toys and look for cracks, separations and/or missing pieces. Inspect KONG rubber toys by flexing the rubber when it is dry. Loose pieces larger than a food nugget can be harmful if swallowed so make sure to remove or replace damaged or worn toys.
But it still flies pretty well. Guess I missed that part in the description. For the original price I don't really think it would be worth it. One good bite and a dog could chomp this in half.

My black lab puppy has not been able to destroy it after a couple of weeks.
A little awkward to throw, I wish that it was heavier

Charlie loves this. He can easily get his mouth around it and it floats! I have a border collie that loves the water and anything I throw for him. It's a hard foam and easy to find. He wasn't to tug with it, even though I've told him it's a fetch toy. LOL
Kong dummy didn’t last

I really wanted to like this one :( it just came in the mail and didn’t last 10 minutes. Pictures are after 1 minute and 5 minutes of play
Kong Training Dummy Works Very Well

Buddy is my Goldendoodle who loves to swim. I took Buddy to the beach yesterday and he loved to rerieve his new training dummy. The only think that could be improved is that if it would have a little more weight you could throw it a lot farther.
A little disappointing

I love Kong products and this one is great for play in water. But it's not as sturdy as I would've liked. My pup had the rope chewed off in less than a minute and started ripping the the actual dummy apart soon after. Needless to say, it's been hidden away until our next pond adventure. Will not recommend or purchase again
Good for water play BUT easy for dogs’ teeth to get stuck

The headline says it all... it’s good for fetch in the water, easy to throw and very visible. But my dog’s teeth get stuck in the material (which is super soft and squishy, definitely not tough/durable like the description says). I usually have to pry it out of his mouth because his teeth are stuck in it. For that reason this isn’t our top choice throw toy.

Bought a cheaper version of this toy for my 5 yr old black lab and he bit off and chewed the end off it . Got the KONG version and though he has tried he can not bite through it !!! This is a great toy for all around play time and to bring to the water for doggy swim time !
Kong to the Rescue!

The best toy for the beach!! My Aussie loves to dive in the waves, and this toy stays afloat for him to retrieve. He never gets bored of fetching this (he loses interest in balls and frisbees pretty quickly).

Great fetch toy, but my GSD uses it more as a bite / tug toy. Excellent product.
