Just like humans enjoy food, dogs enjoy a great treat every once in a while. KONG toys give you a great opportunity to treat your pets a little more like family with creative treats that will keep them full and entertained.

The real trick to these treats is that you can put almost anything in a KONG. You can give your pet a nice frozen treat in the summer or stuff the KONG with festive foods during the holidays. Keep in mind that you want to give your dog foods that taste good, but are also healthy for them.

Quick Guide to KONG toys

Kong Extreme Dog Toy

KONGs are one of the most popular interactive chew toys on the market. They are designed to keep your dog occupied, whilst satisfying both their physical, mental and hunger needs all in one go!

They are made from a strong, durable rubber material that is built to cope with even the heaviest of chewers. To the right is the Extreme KONG, which is the toughest one you can get, but there are a variety of others to suit dogs of different breed, size and age.

Each KONG has a hole running down the middle that can be stuffed with the filling of your choice. There are many ready made fillings available, but there is much more satisfaction in making your own - plus you can ensure your pup is eating healthily.
