My humans always thought that Kong toys are the most durable dog toys in the world. Well, not for a beagle! At least, not all of them.
Over the past 2 years I’ve collected (and destroyed) quite a number of Kong toys.
And my thoughts on which Kong I think is the best…..
No. 10: Puppy teething stick
No. 9: Braidz
No. 8: Pet stix
No. 7: Squiggles
My humans only let me play with it for a limited time only each day…. so it took me a couple of weeks to chew off an ear and tear a large hole in its neck. I love this toy because it stretches and squeaks a lot!
No. 6: Air dog
No. 5: Wubba
No. 4: Wobbler
The wobbler….. full of scratches from my teeth and from dragging it all over the floor. I got the treats out easily by pushing it into a corner, holding it with one paw and using the other paw to twist it open. No challenge at all.
No. 3, 2 & 1! Kong extremes
By far, these are the most durable Kongs I ever had and the only ones I get to lay my paws and teeth on every day. My humans stuff yummy treats in it and the hard rubber ball is the only ball that I haven’t been able to destroy……yet. I’ve been chewing on the Kong extreme and Extreme Goodie Bone for 2 years and they have only suffered minor scratches.
Best of all, I love my Kong ball. I make my humans play with me until they get so sick of throwing the ball or tugging it from my mouth or having to constantly retrieve it from under the sofa because I would deliberately push it underneath for fun and then bark at them.
So my verdict: all the kong toys are super fun to play with, but only the extreme rubber toys can withstand a beagle!
I would love very much to get my
paws on a Kong shakers, but unfortunately it’s a new product which might take months to be available here…… and my humans say I’m a spoilt dog with far too many toys! A dog can never have far too many toys!
