Thread: Kong Toys any good?

    I have a black kong that is about 6 yrs old and still giong strong. The dogs have been through 3 others over the years, but they were the red ones they whittled them down lol.

    I think they are great, I dont usually put treats in them only now and then, sometimes I will make a beef broth plug up the end pour it inand freeze them like a kong iceblock.

    I mostly use them like a strange ball that bounces in any direction though!

    I got the cheap version of Kong from a $2 shop. Same thing, hasn't deteriorated or anything.

    I fill it with peanut butter and bits of schmako or dried liver etc. Keeps her entertained...

    FOR ABOUT 5 MINUTES...

    And then she's done with it and it's back to annoying mummy. Once I froze some food in ice and she took it out of the container and left it on the carpet to defrost (the dear little thing).

    I find that the best occupiers are raw meaty bones. Unfortunately my vet said only chicken wings because my dog is small. But she gets through those in about 5 minutes anyway. And if I freeze them she eats them fast anyway and then comes to me freezing and shaking. lol.

    I've found the Kongs work best with food motivated breeds. My Deerhounds ignored them and my Sheltie pup lost interest in hers very quickly. However I gave my unloved Kongs away to a Bull Arab and a Staffy and both dogs love em so the Kongs found good homes in the end. I guess it all depends on the dog.

    Yep i have to agree, Tony my greyhound doesnt chew at all so he only chases the two when i throw it although he will chase anything i throw so i think they are better suited to dogs who like to chew.

    If you put something very unusual in the Kong (that's dog safe, of course), you can usually get a dog interested.

    My border collie when he was a pup loved his. When I went out I'd give him a kong filled with mince with peanut paste or mighty mite at the end. This would then be frozen. He loved them.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    We have several Kong toys in different shapes, and our guys play with them if they have food in them or not. They are on the more expensive end, but they are forever playing with them, and we have been through so many cheaper toys, it would have been cheaper just to buy more Kong's lol.

    Best of luck!!
