Which KONG Box is Right for Your Dog's Play Type?

A dog’s playtime should be hassle-free and filled with fun. But every dog plays a little bit differently. For some, playtime needs to be nutritious and delicious. For others, playtime is all about a good chew. 

From an owner’s perspective, playtime should be safe, easy on the bank account and hopefully promoting healthy habits. Regardless of how your pup plays, KONG Box can suit his or her needs and play style. Within each box are a variety of toys that take into account a dog’s size and how they chew, providing specific solutions for playtime.

Discover how your dog prefers to play to choose the right dog box for the next time your canine companion wants to have fun.

Tuggers and Chewers

For dogs that love to tug and chew, teeth are important tools. That’s why the dog teething solution box is perfect for these cuties. When your dog loves to chew and tug on toys, you need to give her toys that can stand to be gnawed but also protect those teeth. The toys, tips, and treats in the teething box are designed to last, so they can keep up with your pup’s play and keep him away from chewing on your shoes.

Included in this box are:

  • KONG Binkies and other toys made with a safe and durable rubber

The cheerleader dog loves to run with the group but doesn’t necessarily need to join the action. This type of dog wants to be heard, so during playtime will bark in excitement.

Included in this box are:
