What are KONG toys, and how can they help my pet?
KONG is an innovative toy brand, offering a range of durable pet toys to help you encourage your pet’s natural instinct to chase, chew, scratch and hunt! KONG was founded in the 1970s when Joe Markham tried to find a solution to his beloved dog’s chewing habits. Now, KONG is one of the biggest names in the pet toy industry and provides solutions to common issues, such as, teething, separation anxiety and boredom. Whether it be KONGs for dogs made to be chewed and release those treats, or KONGs for cats designed to allow their natural hunting instinct to flourish, this brand has worked wonders across both sides of the animal kingdom.

Cat took it out the package himself to play with obviously the cat nip inside attracted him to it. It's a good sized toy.
KONG Dog Toys
KONG dog toys are durable, rubber toys intended to help curb (or at least satisfy) your dog’s natural chewing habits. But, the KONG is more than just a chew toy! They can also be used for playing fetch, enrichment, puzzle and even as a food bowl to help slow down fast eaters, making KONGs for dogs a fantastic way to help your pooch across the board.

Can KONGs Make Pets Sick?
KONGs are made from durable and natural rubber and are highly unlikely to give your pet an allergic reaction or make them ill.
