We fill it with some peanut butter, kibble, dog treats and stop the big hole end with a KONG branded biscuit. This is instead of her evening meal - it occupies her for a bit if we are out in the evening. She then settles in for a listen to ABC radio. It's a dog's life.
He gives his Kong 5 / 5 tail wags! Woof woof!
I have also used to play fetch, the random bounce direction is awesome, drive the dog insane!

One word of caution however, that I only heard about long after my dog became addicted, is that some dogs' tongues may get stuck inside the toy leading to asphyxiation. That's a truly appalling idea so do supervise your dog with this just in case. Be aware that the little hole in one end may become blocked with food and needs to be washed carefully and regularly. Make sure it remains free and clear thus allowing air to go in and out which should prevent this vacuum tongue-hazard.
My dog had been playing with his first Kong for at least 8 years before it started to break down. The rubber becomes oddly sticky eventually and leaches oils when it begins to perish. Obviously you should replace it as soon as this happens. It's a curious thing but entirely acceptable after years of massive abuse. I started with the Medium size for him and he enjoys it but the Large is a whole new realm because it holds so much more and takes him ages to empty, being much deeper and more challenging.
I would give this five stars based on my own experience. The person who warned me of the danger could be entirely wrong, and was going by hearsay I think, but the fact remains that any design that can become clogged at the end does have the potential to create a vacuum just as a bottle could. Please be careful if you give this to your dog and buy the size that best suits your breed, in terms of safety as well as play quality. I would simply always be there with your dog when you give it to them and supervise them. It remains however a really enjoyable toy for a dog and will keep them happy for ages. Dogs need this mental stimulation which is why I continue to use it even though it requires supervision.
I bought the X-large for my 20kg puppy (advice was to size up when buying a Kong Classic).
1st time using it, I dropped a few dog treats inside so my 10 month old pup could get the reward without any frustration.
2nd use I filled it up and left it to freeze. I put in 1 mashed banana mixed with a little Meridan peanut butter, some sliced frozen strawberries and a few dog biscuits .... HUGE HIT and 75 mins of licking before it was empty!!! The pup had it pinned down with her paw.
FREEZING TIP: Top narrower half fill with dog biscuits, peas, carrots etc ... something loose and easy for the dog to get out. Then top up with a gooey item like yoghurt, peanut butter, mashed banana etc. You can fill with any food items your dog enjoys.
Fantastic for enrichment, a dog recovering from surgery, or if you are looking some quiet time. The licking motion is calming to dogs, the Kong will be useful in stormy weather or in times of fireworks.
If you are stuck on filling ideas the Kong website and Pinterest having lots of recipes.
It can also just be used in the home or garden as a fetch toy.
So far the Kong itself appears pretty robust, so fingers crossed it lasts a long time.
Found out recently they are called kongs after a comment that the prototype looked like one of king kongs ear plugs 😆
Pic shows an adult Field Spaniel (same size head as Setters) with a large size Kong. They should be able to just about get their jaws round the large end to squish out the compacted stuffing for optimum enjoyment, and a peaceful home! 😊
My only regret: the golden retriever that joined our familly 1,5 year ago doesn't fully understand the principle of Kongs and we had to stop giving him any Kongs because the labrador always ended up 'stealing it'.
A last info: Kpngs are tough but they are not everlasting. We have 4 kongs in our freezer so our labrador uses each every four days and they last 3 to 4 months. That said, any toy he doesn't destroy in minutes deserves respect.
Debo decir que mi perra destroza muchas cosas, sobre todo juguetes. De ahí que cogiera el que se anuncia como el juguete definitivo e irrompible. "A todo el mundo le funciona, y con perros muy potentes, este seguro que aguanta. Además es para dientes de adulto. "
Pues aún así, se lo cargó.
Le llevó semana y algo en vez de los habituales 10 minutos.
Pero aún así fue una decepción y me hizo perder un poco la esperanza con la perra.
Por supuesto es un producto pensado para perros, el plástico no es tóxico, se puede rellenar de premios para que se entretengan, y se puede lanzar para que lo capturen - con esa forma, cada vez bota en una dirección, y hay perros a los que les gusta.
Es un buen juguete, que vale el dinero que cuesta, si tu perro no se lo come.
We also have black for bigger dogs,
Great toys, great for teething and great for putting in treats to keep them occupied. Can’t fault these at all.
We should own shares in kong today by now the amount we spend but all last well.
Depending on what filling we’ve used it can keep her occupied for an hour or so. But we always supervise her with the kong and take it away as soon as the food is all gone. This is because she starts chewing the kong rather than licking the treat out, and it’s not strong enough to stand up to much chewing.
If you have never used a Kong here's a tip buy some cheap peanut butter smear a small amount inside the kong put a few treats inside (ideally tight fitting) the smellier treats the better and seal with a small dab of peanut butter. Put in front of your dog and watch the delight on their little faces.
They absolutely love these toys and the game of getting out the treats can go on for ages. If you are concerned about your dogs weight just use a little dry food from their bowls.
It seems a lot of money for a bit of rubber but trust me your dog will love you for it ours sit their waiting for our evening coffee time and KONG time.
