Kongs are widely used for therapy and prevention of boredom, separation anxiety and other behavioral issues. Regular use of Kongs can also improve oral health. Their unpredictable bounce lures most dogs into a game of chase, catch and chew. The hollow center can be filled with food and treats. A dab of peanut butter spread around the inside is very effective.
Providing food and/or treat stuffed Kongs for your dogs can keep them contentedly busy (working) and out of trouble for long periods of time. Add more stuffed Kongs to increase their work time.
Proper Kong sizing is determined by your dogs size and chewing temperament. Always Size Up - If your dog destroys a Kong in a short period of time, try a larger Kong and/or a Black Kong. Only provide a Kong sized for the largest and/or most tenacious chewer in the house.
