User Guide – Choosing the right toy

Choosing the Right Size.

KONG rubber toys are proudly made in the USA by people who know and love dogs. KONG has set the standard for safe and durable pet toys for over 36 years.

Your Dog’s Safety is your Responsibility. No Dog Toy is Indestructible.

Please supervise all new toy use until you are confident your dog can safely play without supervision. Remove all packaging. Discontinue use if damaged.

Proper Sizing.

It is important to use the right size of KONG for your dog to have the safest, most enjoyable , and longest-lasting experience.

Choose the Proper Size for Your Largest Dog.

If you have multiple dogs in your household, only provide KONG toys sized for the largest and/or most tenacious chewer in the house.

Size Up.

If your dog destroys a KONG toy in a short period of time, try a larger size. If you are using the red KONG Classic toy, consider using a black KONG Extreme toy.

Types of Chewers

There are three basic chewing styles when it comes to dogs and their toys.

Average Chewers

These dogs love to play with all kinds of toys and will often carry toys around with them. They can be destructive with plush and fabric toys but rarely are destructive with rubber toys.

Gentle Chewers

These dogs are easy on toys and prefer plush or fabric toys. They usually like to lick or suck on their toys, but rarely ever destroy their toys.

Power Chewers

These dogs are usually strong, determined chewers who require more discretion when it comes to selecting toys. Choose durable, interactive play toys along with hard rubber toys. Sizing up is also helpful when picking toys for Power Chewers.

For all dogs—regardless of chewing temperament—supervise play until you’re confident the dog won’t destroy the toy. Be sure to replace any toy with cuts, tears or rips.
