Kong Extreme Dog Toy Product Review
Kong advertises that the Kong Extreme Dog Toy is “made in the USA from a thick, flexible rubber that’s non-toxic, non-splintering, and puncture-resistant.” While I’m sure that is true, I have seen, on occasion, dogs that could tear the Kong apart. For this reason, I would not recommend leaving your dog untended with this toy until you know how your dog is likely to treat the toy. (In all fairness to Kong, this is true of any toy.)
For most dogs, the Kong Extreme Dog Toy stands up very well and many of my client’s dogs seem to be fond of the toy. My brother’s dog, Tucker, a golden retriever, is also very fond of his Kong Extreme Dog Toy. For Tucker, my brother often fills the toy with peanut butter and places the toy (with the peanut butter) in the freezer before giving it to Tucker. The frozen peanut butter filled Kong keeps Tucker occupied for long periods of time.
In the interest of full disclosure, one of the Kong Extreme Dog Toys that my brother is using for Tucker was obtained as a gift at the 2011 BlogPaws conference at a suite party that I attended hosted by PetSmart. This is not, however, the only Kong toy that Tucker owns.
Who could benefit from the Kong Extreme Dog Toy?
Any pet owner that has a dog that likes to play, that is fond of treats, or that needs to be kept busy will find the Kong Extreme Dog Toy a good choice. It has a variety of benefits, including providing mental stimulation for your dog as he works to retrieve any food from inside the Kong toy. It also provides exercise for your dog. The Kong Extreme Dog Toy is a good toy to use for games of fetch or chase with your dog.
