Product Description

It's not just a dog toy; it's a KONG.

KONG Puppy is made with our exclusive teething rubber formula designed for puppies up to nine months. Veterinarians and trainers recommend stuffing the KONG Puppy with healthy treats to aid in crate training, decreasing separation anxiety, promoting proper chewing behavior and deterring misbehavior for happy, healthy puppies. Our super-bouncy, pink or blue natural rubber compound is unequaled for dogs who like to chew.

Teach good chewing habits.

Chewing

Since most puppies love to chew, it’s important to teach your dog which items are acceptable to chew. Teach this lesson in a positive and fun way by introducing a KONG toy stuffed with treats; provide constant praise when your dog plays and chews on it rather than your favorite shoes. Remember to use a variety of KONG toys and treats to keep lessons fun and interesting and to always monitor how your dog is chewing until you’re comfortable (it usually takes around two weeks to determine your dog’s chewing temperament).

Crate training

Crate training is an effective way to house train a puppy or new dog. In this critical time, you can help relax your dog with a treat-stuffed KONG to create a positive association with the crate. Start a dog’s crate training by stuffing a KONG toy with a favorite treat. Let the dog see and smell the stuffed toy, then place the KONG in the back of the crate leaving the door open. As the dog chews on the KONG inside the crate, they begin to feel more comfortable and create a positive association with the crate. Repeat this until their dog is happy to settle in the crate on their own.

Separation anxiety

Separation anxiety typically occurs in the first 20 minutes after you leave a dog alone. A simple solution is to help the dog develop a positive association between being left alone and good things, like a treat-stuffed KONG. Stuffing a KONG toy with a mix of wet and dry ingredients creates a challenge that typically lasts 20 minutes, engaging dogs during the time when anxiety is at its peak. A KONG can even be frozen so that getting all the food out takes even more time.

Barking and Digging

Dogs bark to communicate and dig when bored or afraid. Creating good behaviors start with productive play, which allows dogs to expend excess energy. Every time you throw a KONG toy, the unpredictable bounce ensures no two games are ever the same, keeping the dog engaged and excited for more. A stuffed KONG is also helpful for a dog left outside to play. Directing their energy toward something positive, like working for the food inside the toy, diminishes bad behaviors.

Start them off right.
Dogs Need to Play.

For dogs, physical and mental development, emotions and behavior are all influenced by healthy play. Play helps dogs expend excess energy, which is important for appropriate behavior. KONG dog toys encourage play, satisfying dogs' instinctual needs and strengthening the bond between dog and owner.


Puppies & Teething
  • Like humans, dogs have two sets of teeth in their lives. The 28 baby teeth erupt through the gums between the third and sixth weeks of age. Puppies don’t have to grind much food, so they do not have molars.
  • Puppy teeth begin to shed and be replaced by permanent adult teeth at about four to five months of age. The teething period can be frustrating and painful; the puppy clamps his mouth on everything he can reach, from body parts to expensive sneakers, in an attempt to relieve the discomfort.
  • Our puppy rubber toys are gentle for growing teeth and jaws and helps to promote entry of growing teeth, while establishing healthy chewing habits.

We recently adopted 3 wonderful, adorable pups - 2 of whom are still in their "chewing stage". Based on the recommendation of friends, we decided to give the "Kong" a try - and it's awesome!

"Kongs" are made to be extremely strong, so they don't fall apart when the little ones chew on them for hours (or even when our big guy decides to have a little chewing action on it himself). We've found that our dogs love them as is, but they REALLY get into it when we insert a treat or some of the "Kong" vitamin-enriched tasty paste into the open cavity. They'll spend lots of time and energy attempting to get the treat out (which is unlikely) &/or enjoying the "tasty paste".

Overall, we found this to be a great toy for our "little ones" - it provides them with something that they're allowed to chew & that I as a "puppy parent" don't have to worry about falling apart due to long bouts of gnawing. Our dogs give the "Kong" a "2 paws up"!!!

Dear People,

As a four-pawed 'person' I must confess, I love my small Kong toy. Being just 10 lbs., I usually want soft toys, but this little rubber toy is terrific. My family puts peanut butter into the small opening of the Kong and then I spend a lo-o-o-ng time licking it out. I enjoy sniffing it and chewing the rubber even when there's nothing left inside. Yum, just my kind of activity when my staff--er, family--leaves me at home. I know I'm a guy (even though I'm no longer a stud muffin) but, I kinda' like the hot pink and white marbled look of my Kong. And it's so well-made, I don't think they'll have to buy me another one--unless I hide this one like I hid my blue one.

Trust me, your pooch will want one, too. Gotta' go, it's time for my walk.

Your friend,
Maxx

My puppy LOVES his puppy Kong. Be warned though you will need to watch these types of Kong as your dog gets older to make sure their jaws aren't strong enough to chew them apart. They are made to be a bit "softer" so that puppies have an easier time to chew on it. This keeps my puppr busy for some time when I am gone at work AND he loves playing with the kong when it is empty now.

Note: Most puppies will not automatically start chewing on a Kong. you have to use things to make him want to chew on it. Some people use the "easy cheese" Kong spray can. It works for some dogs, doesn't work for others. Some people use peanut butter with kibble. This can do the trick but remember peanut butter is fattening and not really nutrious for your puppy. I, personally, will use part of my puppies kibble (sometimes other treats)and then canned wet food for dogs. I mix it and then put it in the freezer overnight. He loves it and it keeps him busy a lot longer than smearing wet food or peanutbutter in it.

This worked great for our previous pups. Our current pup is a strong/persistent chewer, and shredded this. She graduated to the adult (red) version at 10 weeks of age, and is on the Extreme (black) version at 5 months. This version is a good product, for the right pup. By the way, while the pink version is cute, it makes it harder to detect bleeding, so stick with the blue.

My little labradoodle puppy which is a labrador reteriever and a poodle.she is quite happy with it. so I got another one of those and she loved it so much she was about to explode!!! And when I tried another brand of toy she played with it every day for only 1 hour and 15 minutes. But with this toy she played with it 24 hours a day!!! And sometimes I even hear her playing with it at night in her cage!

so try it don't miss it!!

I have purchased this toy for two puppies in the past three years. It is excellent to use with crate training. I put the treats in only when they are to go into their crate and they are happy to be in there. It has been the favorite toy for both my Yorkie and my new puppy, a Cairn Terrier. They love time in the crate with this and will grab it out of their crate to play with it around the house.

Keeping my puppies from chewing on things around the house in an ongoing problem but with the Kong Puppy Toy I have found a solution. Placing a few treats in the toy has gained all the focus of my dogs and when placed securely at the bottom provides hours of concentrated effort to gain access to the reward. My boys can dismantle almost any fluffy toy I give them within a day, but the Kong has lasted for months and was just recently replaced by a larger, adult version only because of the age/size of the dogs.

One of my favorite things to do is mix up some peanut butter and dog treats, place the paste in the Kong and freeze it for a few hours. The dogs love it and its very inexpensive to make.
