How the Red Kong Classic chew toy can help prevent unwelcome pet behavior by keeping your dog entertained.


Review: Classic Red Kong

Published 15:52 pm

All dogs were born with a natural instinct to hunt, fetch, dig, chase and chew, skills that revert back to a time when dogs were predators and hunted for their own meals. Even though meals are a little easier to come by for today's dogs, those old instincts are part of their genetic makeup and will surface when a dog is bored.

Doggie boredom can lead to a whole range of unwelcome behavioral problems. These may include chewing on shoes or furniture, incessant barking or digging holes out in the back yard. Some dogs may develop separation anxiety or even forget their house training when their owners leave for the day. Much of this unwelcome behavior can be prevented with plenty of exercise and an assortment of dog toys that will keep your dog engaged while satisfying that natural predatory instinct.

It takes careful thought to find the right sort of toy for your dog, a toy that is both the right fit and will indulge your dog's natural tendency to tug, pull and chew. Chew toys, such as the classic Red Kong, give dogs the chance to engage in playful, non-destructive behavior while giving their jaws and teeth a workout. The Red Kong is a breeder-recommended toy. The Red Kong is also practically indestructible, an important quality for owners who are concerned about toy safety.

Piant yet durable, the Red Kong is made of a hard red rubber that dogs find impossible to tear apart. The Red Kong also comes in five different sizes ranging from a 3-inch-sized Red Kong for small dogs to a Red Kong that is 6 inches in length for larger dogs.

What makes the Red Kong different from other chew toys is that the inside has a hollow core, not unlike the inside of a bone. For added doggie enjoyment, the core of the Red Kong can be filled with a mix of soft dog food and treats. Once the Red Kong has been filled, it can then be frozen to solidify the moist dog food. The frozen food delays the dog from eating the food quickly and extends the play time by at least an hour as your pet tries to empty out the Red Kong's inner core.

For a durable toy that will keep your dog happily engaged for hours, a dog owner would be hard-pressed to find a better, safer toy than the classic Red Kong. A Red Kong filled with yummy treats can help prevent doggie boredom while satisfying your dog's desire to chew and gnaw.
