KONG Extreme Dog Toy, Black

KONG Extreme Dog Toy, Black

Amazon.com Review

Used by police, drug enforcement teams, and the military for training working dogs, this super- toy stands up to jaws of steel. Even if your dog's job rarely takes him off the couch, the Kong Extreme's goofy, unpredictable bounce makes for hours of chasing and fetching fun–just the thing for animals whose life in the wild consists of tracking, killing, chewing, and then doing the same thing all over again. When you're away, simply stuff the hollow interior with treats or gooey peanut butter, and extracting the contents becomes a “hunt” to keep any pooch and busy all workday long. Chewing Kongs helps promote strong jaws, clean teeth, and general oral health. Even aggressive “power chewers” will find it to bite through carbon-formula Ultra Flex, and dogs with separation anxiety or problem behaviors like barking and digging will especially benefit from the mental and physical stimulation.

Kongs are made in the USA from a thick, flexible rubber that's , non-splintering, and puncture-resistant. This black Kong Extreme is appropriate for medium- to large-sized aggressive chewers, including smaller Labs and golden retrievers. Supervised play is highly recommended, especially when first a to your dog. Regularly inspect the Kong for or missing chunks, and replace worn or damaged toys to avoid a choking hazard. Satisfaction is guaranteed; if either you or your dog aren't happy with your purchase, return within 30 days for a full refund. –Mary Park

  1. Absolutely HORRIFIC smelling-and yes, tasting. The rubber literally smells like a toxic mixture of gasoline and tires. Now, I am NOT indicating in ANY WAY WHATSOEVER that it is toxic, Im not saying that. I’m just saying that it stinks to high heaven, tastes even worse and NONE of my 7 dogs would have ANYTHING to do with it once they got passed the tasty treats that were on the outer edges of the toy.

    Here ARE THE DE”TAILS”……I initially gave it to my “chewer”, 1 of 7 rescue dogs that I am currently caring for. After loading it with peanut butter I waited………he got a bit of the peanut butter from the very edges cleaned off pretty well, then wouldn’t touch it. So, I tried it with the other 6 dogs-one of whom will eat absolutely ANYTHING. Or, at least I thought that at one time. Big Frank wouldn’t touch it, either.

    So, I then tried a little experiment. I used some leftover steak trimmings and put them inside the Kong. Shockingly enough, none of the dogs would go near it once they had gotten past the steak taste on the outside of the Kong and got a real good taste of the rubber.

    So, you guessed it. I did it. I had find out what all the “noses in the air” were all about. I washed it THOROUGHLY, (used an old baby bottle brush to get inside it), then stuck my tongue on it just to see…….oh my Lord, I cant even begin to tell you how nasty it smells and tastes. I know exactly why they won’t have anything to do with it.

    Now, this is only MY opinion. Take the others into consideration, as it seems to work for some other dogs. Mine, however, wouldn’t go near it to save their butts.

    I got the Extreme Kong (black), because my rat terrier had already torn apart a Classic Kong (red). He goes through plush squeaky toys in no time flat. He has chewed pieces out of one Extreme Kong, but not the other two. What have I learned to keep him from shredding Kongs?

    1) Always supervise your dog with this toy (at least until you know how well it will hold up). Yes, the instructions say this. It’s not just CYA legal BS. Until you know for SURE that *your* dog can’t chew through the Extreme Kong, don’t leave him unattended with this toy. (Unfortunately, this means that I can’t give it to him in his kennel to alleviate boredom when I leave the house.)

    2) If your dog has already destroyed other toys, consider sizing up from the “recommended” size. My dog weighs 25 lb, which is solidly in the “medium” range, but the Large Kong is better for his extreme chewing. The Extreme Kong he tore apart was a Medium. He hasn’t managed to tear apart the Large yet.

    3) Don’t fill it all the way with peanut butter. Stuff the bottom 1/2 – 2/3 with dry food or treats and the clog the top 1/3 or so with something soft like peanut butter. If you fill the whole thing with something that’s impossible to get out without tearing the toy apart, your dog will tear the toy apart.

    4) Wash it on a regular basis. I have more than one Kong so I can still use one while the other is being washed. I like to soak mine in warm, soapy water for a few hours before sticking it in the dishwasher. This seems to get it clean even if there’s peanut butter in the crevices. Dried on cheese can be a bit harder to clean out (I use the pointy end of a spoon or even a toothbrush to get at those bits).

    5) If you notice your Kong is showing wear, replace it. Once it starts to give, your extreme chewer can destroy it pretty fast. Don’t let him get that far!

    No toy is indestructible, but the Extreme Kong lasts longer than anything else I’ve found. Read the insert that comes with your Kong and follow the recommendations to keep your dog safe and entertained.

  2. Important note: the extreme Kong is NOT the same as the red Kong, which apparently is much flimsier. I got this for my neighbor’s good-natured pit bull Major, after seeing him shred everything else. Thin rubber squeaky toys last only a few hours, nylabones perhaps a day or two, and even the thick rubber chill pill got shredded. But the Kong Extreme has (to my surprise) remained intact. I had begun to think that only a chunk of cinderblock would survive…maybe. Extreme Kong takes funny bounces (which apparently is part of the idea. Toys with rope handles made for better slobber-avoiding toss-and-fetching, but handles got chewed off very quickly. You can throw this by poking your finger in the holes and tossing–it’s marginally better in terms of slobber than many other toys. Kong comes in different sizes–the largest may outweigh your toy Chihuahua, so be judicious. If a neighbor has a pit bull, getting on his good side is important, even if he is as good-natured as Major!
