Tip of the Month

8/18/2006 Kong! The King of Toys

The Kong is one of today's most recognizable dog training toys on the market. It not only acts as a great toy that bounces unpredictably when dropped, but is also a great way to keep your pooch occupied. It also is a helpful dog training tool, especially for housebreaking and inappropriate chewing.

The Kong has a hollow center that allows an owner to stuff it with any treats the dog finds delicious, such as peanut butter, hard biscuits, or cheese. Many dogs will spend hours licking and playing with the Kong trying to get at the yummy contents. Your professional animal trainer is very familiar with the Kong and has probably used it in past dog training sessions.

Kongs are available in two different natural rubber formulas to meet a dog’s chewing needs. The Red Kong is made for average chewers and comes in variety of sizes (S, M, L, and XL). The Black Kong is made of extra thick rubber, which is designed for tenacious chewers, and available in two sizes (L, XL). There are many different types and shapes of Kongs available in most pet stores for all types of dogs. Ask your dog trainer for assistance in picking out the appropriate size for your dog. Please note that dogs should always be supervised when using Kongs until the owner is confident they can be used safely when not home.
