    Cool Kong

    I've being thinking about getting Dora a kong, but would like some opinions first. Also, with her being a tiny pup, I don't know if it will fit in her mouth. I have seen her pick up a tennis ball (with her mouth ofc ) but she could barely keep it from falling.
    Can I have some opinions on kongs please?

    Don't Kongs come in many different sizes?

    I know when I have bought the x-large ones in years gone past (and recently) the shelf had a vast range of different size Kong's, and some looked very small indeed!

    Kong's are great time-consuming toys for dogs, particularly when you fill them a food item, such as peanut butter, small pieces of meat or treats etc.

    Yes, they do come in diff. sizes, but even the smallest looks a bit big. But she'll need something to occupy herself with (other than the cat) when I go to school again at the end of this month. I've bought little beef- and pork-hide bones which she chews for HOURS, but just in case

    Jenna loves her kong. I stuff it with dog food and freeze it. It's great, probably lasts her about 40 mins and cools her down in this hot humid weather.

    I do need to get the larger size though, she is still using her puppy one.

    I have 2 puppy ones (they are the pink and blue ones). Dora may be able to pick up the small end, and even if she can't she will still enjoy chasing it as it rolls along the floor. Also, make sure the chews you buy are suitable for puppies, as a lot of things aren't, or aren't suitable for puppies under 4-6 months.

    I don't know what we'd do without our kongs! I did find the red one started to crack after being frozen, just little cracks around the bigger end from her chewing, so I bought a black one for freezing.

    I could watch her work on a kong (or any of her filled toys) for hours as I enjoy watching her work out how to empty it..... she uses her paws just as much as picking it up in her mouth.

    My chihuahua had the small puppy kong then we brought him the small normal kong.

    He loves them! Much better value than the ever lasting treat ball we tried - Was much more expensive and did essentially the same thing (but was harder to clean).

    The only thing I find with Kongs is you need to find them and clean then out at the end of the day. I left it in the yard overnight and it was covered in ants - ew.

    But a fun toy for Johnny - keeps me thinking of how to stuff it differently (he figures out how to drop it off a ledge so all the treats fall out without him having to do anything if I don't plug it).

    I recently brought a wubble kong (think thats what it's called)... it is a small kong inside a soft cover with legs... looks kinda like an octopus... its great... your small dog will have no problems with it... mystaffy sells them at a reasonable price..
