KONG founder, John Markham, loved his trained police dog, Fritz, but did not love his destructive chewing habits. Where your dog might find your socks or furniture Fritz loved to chew on rocks, sticks and other harmful items. Fritz’s teeth as you can imagine were starting to wear down and Joe was getting frustrated.
One day while working on a VW bus, Joe began throwing out car parts to Fritz to lure him away from those rocks. Fritz was immediately taken with a rubber suspension part and dropped it onto Joe’s lap to play. The erratic bounce and toughness of the rubber inspired Joe to create KONG.
KONG rubber dog toys are made from pet-safe, built to chew rubber. Dog’s love KONG, the way it bounces it keeps them engaged and ready to play. It has a soft mouth feel for a satisfying chew and of course, it is super durable.
Today the KONG range extends to soft toys, puppy toys, squeaking toys, treat dispensing toys and engagement toys. KONG has your dog’s needs covered!
KONG toys are the best in quality, originality, variety, safety and value. Give your dog a KONG and they’ll show you it’s not just a toy, it’s a KONG.
