Dogs and their owners choose the original Kong and all of the other Kong toys because they’re fun. Kong toys are the best of the best in quality, originality, variety, safety, and value. Give a dog a Kong and they will be the first to show you - “It’s not just a toy, it’s a KONG”.
KONG founder, Joe Markham, loved his trained police dog, Fritz, but did not love his destructive chewing habits. Fritz loved to crunch on rocks, sticks and other harmful items. Fritz’s teeth were wearing down and his need for stimulation and play was not being met, and Joe was frustrated. One day while Joe was working on his car Fritz found a rubber suspension part and dropped it in Joe’s lap to play. The erratic bounce and toughness of the rubber inspired Joe.
Since then the pet-safe, built-to-chew rubber turned into the Kong that dogs love. The way it bounces keeps them engaged and ready to play. It has a soft mouth feel for a satisfying chew and, of course, it’s super durable. Owners love KONG too. Kong can be stuffed, thrown, chewed and played with hard and can be left out in the yard - KONG keeps coming back for more.
Kong toys are made with FDA-approved materials and are routinely tested for product safety.
