The KONG Classic has been the gold standard of dog toys for over thirty years. Our super-bouncy, red natural rubber compound is perfect for dogs that like to chew. KONGs are recommended by vets, trainers and dog owners worldwide more than any other dog toy. Original Kongs Serve as great chase toys that build excellent motor skills and coordination as they bounce in many directions. They also serve as great chew toys that allow you to place biscuits or peanut butter inside to pre-occupy a dog's mind preventing boredom that causes problems while owners are away.
KONG — Because Dogs Need to Play.
Dogs never stop finding ways to have a good time, and KONG gives you and your best friend more fun per square inch than any toy on the planet. So what’s the magic?
Necessity—and love—is the mother of invention at KONG.
KONG founder, Joe Markham, loved his trained police dog, Fritz, but did not love his destructive chewing habits. Where other dogs might have chewed your shoes or favorite purse, 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 working on a VW Bus, Joe began throwing out car parts to Fritz to lure him away from those rocks. Fritz was immediately taken with a rubber suspension part and dropped it in Joe’s lap to play. The erratic bounce and toughness of the rubber inspired Joe.
We’ve been making KONGs from our own proprietary, pet-safe, built-to-chew rubber ever since. Dogs love KONG. 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; they can stuff it, throw it, leave it out in the yard — KONG keeps coming back for more.
Dogs and their owners choose the original KONG and all of our other favorite 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. They’ll be the first to show you: it’s not just a toy, it’s a KONG.
