Dogs Need to Play. Dogs Need a KONG.
We make versatile, valuable, safe, and long-lasting pet toys. We have everything you need to keep your pet happy and secure, so the fun never has to stop. So how do you maximize the fun? Take these ideas and run with them.
- Encourage your dog to play games of toss and retrieve with KONG toys. Reward with praise or a treat when the toy is returned to you. KONG Classic’s shape and design makes it bounce erratically helping to stimulate your dog’s natural instincts. You’ll never play the same game twice.
- Have your dog stay while you put lightly stuffed KONGs in a variety of hiding places, indoors or out. Say GO! and let him find the KONGs. This kind of hide-and-seek game is actually a great way to mix things up, and it’s more interesting for the dog than just playing fetch all the time.
- Leave a trail of treats leading to a KONG and tell your dog, “Find your KONG.” Make this task harder by increasing the space between the treats.
- Place one or two KONGs in a large bowl of water and entice your dog to fetch the KONG out of the water. We recommend making this an outside activity.
