The original distinctive red Kong! This is for average chewers but you do need to choose the right size and if in doubt we usually suggest you go up a size rather than down. Ideally you want your dog to be able to get their mouth round the Kong to give it a squeeze.
Don’t forget, if you have a power chewer you need a black Kong not a red one, puppies are better with the softer puppy Kongs and for older dogs there is a purple Kong Senior which is a little more flexible.
Stuff with wet food or soaked dry food (if you use dry food without soaking, it will just fall out!)
