Teach good chewing habits.
KONG Sizing Guide
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).
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.
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.
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.
- 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.

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.
"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"!!!
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.

My puppy doesn't seem to care much for these toys. When she was younger she liked peanut butter in these, but now not so much. I guess its just a loss of interest now.Published 4 days ago by Benjamin S.
