Kong Dog Toys

The Kong dog toy is a brilliant innovation in the dog toy and dog chew world. Tough, durable and great fun for your dog - a Kong dog toy is a fantastic way to keep your dog occupied both in the house and on a walk!

The Kong toy was developed in 1976, a clever blend of active toy that could be thrown, chew and dog treat. Made from hard wearing (though not indestructible) rubber, the idea behind the classic cone shaped Kong dog toy is that when thrown, on landing it bounces in random directions. For our purposes here, it can also act as a dog chew, standing up to lots of punishment from even big dogs teeth. The red Kong toys are strong, the black Kong dog toys are stronger still - and perfect for the bigger dog. As a final trick up its sleeve, the hollow centre of the toy is designed to be filled with dog treats, kibbles, food etc. as an ideal and healthy way to keep your dog occupied, for instance when you go out. If you have any worries about using rawhide dog chews, a stuffed Kong toy is the perfect alternative to keep your dog busy and away from other potentially more destructive activities - such as chewing shoes, furniture and so on. They are a great way to discourage destructive chewing. Your dog has to work at getting the treats out of the toy - which should keep them busy for ages! Just make sure to pick a size of Kong appropriate for your dog - no too small for the size of dog, for safety's sake.

The Kong toy itself can be stuffed with all sorts of treats - dog kibbles, biscuits, cheese, dog food, dried meat and fish treats. Pretty much anything that is safe for a dog to eat can go in the Kong! People even add softer food and then freeze the Kong - for a dog ice lolly! Once your Kong has been emptied by the dog, it would be a good idea to clean it - a dishwasher is ideal for this.

There are plenty of Kong dog toy recipes for you to try out. Here are a couple of examples, or make something up yourself. If you are not sure if a particular food stuff is good for your dog, check with your vet first.

Frozen Dog Delight
Mix left over mashed potatoes, canned dog food and kibbles.
Pack into an appropriate sized Kong toy.
Freeze.
Serve to appreciative woofs.

Cheesy meaty treat
Take left over meat - chicken or turkey are ideal, tear into suitable sized chunks.
Mix with cream cheese (low fat better probably for Fido's insides) and pack into Kong toy.
Seal with a layer of cream cheese.
