Product Description

Size: Small

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 just started puppy school and the trainer said that we should give all our puppy's meals in a kong or puzzle toy to keep them more occupied while they get their meal. It's amazing how well it works! It makes her meal span out for about 45 minutes, instead of chowing down and then running around and getting everything. Right now we have 6 Kongs packed up and ready to go- 2 mini, 2 medium, and 3 large- depending on what she gets it for (meals, treats, alone time, etc.). I put a treat all the way in the bottom and then kibble to the opening and then close it with a little all natural peanut butter and then put them in the freezer. I recommend this to whoever has a puppy who is starting to get into everything and want to keep them occupied for awhile- stuffing them can be a project, but it's definitely worth the piece of mind.

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"!!!

I have the Puppy Kong and the Regular Kong - one for each of my dogs. I bought according to their weight and not their breed, so my puppy will soon need the larger Puppy Kong. At first I used the filler that the Kong manufacturer sells. I am not a big fan of the sticks that you put partly inside and partly hanging out of the Kong- because inevitably part of the stick gets stuck inside the Kong and I end up using the back of a spoon to pry it out.

However, I DO love to take non fat yogurt and mix it up with small bite sized pieces of their favorite treat and pack it on into the Kong. I then take a dollop of peanut butter and place it over the hole & freeze. When I leave for work I have no problem getting either of my dogs into their crates because they know once they are sitting in their crate quietly I will give them their frozen treat. (I do not bribe them into the crates with their treats!)

I really like this because both my big dog and my growing puppy are constantly checking their Kongs for more treats & if there aren't any in it- they definitely love to still chew on it.

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

Had this for our Golden Retriever Puppy. He spent hours (over his months of growing), chewing on it. We never used any of the products that were sold to place inside of it. Like the previous reviewer, we chose to use our own "treats". His favorite was natural peanut butter - it was never messy from what I remember (as he spent plenty of time in the house with it). I'm pretty certain he eventually buried it in the yard when he decided he was a "big boy"; he likes to bury things & I haven't seen it in several years! It was also one of the only toy things he could never destroy. We have NEVER had any problems with him chewing on anything of ours either, which is nice! He still has adult Kong items now & another brand (& tennis balls, although he pops those like childs-play!). Baby Kong filled with some natural PB was great for us when we had people over and needed to keep him occupied :)

When I bought this for my eight week Golden puppy he really liked it. It didn't last him to long because it got to small for him really quick. It kept him entertained well.

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.
