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.
Today, KONG has expanded to a variety of dog and cat toys to suit all life stages and needs.
