In 1970, the founder of KONG, Joe Markham loved his dog Fritz – but wasn’t a fan of his destructive chewing habits. He loved rocks, sticks and other harmful items. Joe had tried a variety of techniques to solve his destructive chewing habit.
It wasn’t until Joe threw out a suspension part from a Volkswagen Bus he was fixing, that Fritz found something more appealing than rocks. Whether it was the erratic bounce or durable rubber, Fritz was fanatical about this snowman shaped rubber part. Joe kept taking the rubber part away from Fritz, but he kept bringing it back. This is how the KONG Classic Toy was born. KONG Classic dog toy was created to meet the instinctual needs of dogs to chew and play.
KONG can help solve issues such as chewing, teething, separation anxiety, boredom, digging & barking, crate training, and weight management.
The KONG Classic is the gold standard of dog toys and has become the staple for dogs around the world for over forty years. Offering enrichment by helping satisfy dogs’ instinctual needs, the KONG Classic’s unique natural red rubber formula is ultra-durable with an erratic bounce that is ideal for dogs that like to chew while also fulfilling a dog’s need to play. Want to extend play time? Be sure to stuff with tempting bits of kibble and entice with a dash of peanut butter.
