According to a survey I was sent from the Kong Company, it appears that they will soon be coming out with a brand new Kong toy called the Kong Squeaker!
Cool! I’m sure my dog (and others) will love it! By the sound of things, they’re still toying with the idea of whether or not it will be able to be filled with goodies or not. (I hope so!… That’s what makes a Kong a Kong to me…)
Kong’s Approach To Dog Toys
I have to say, I’ve been quite impressed with the Kong Company and their introduction of new dog toys over the past few years.
It seems they’re always looking for another way to better their product and add yet another version of the classic Kong that will appeal to a different type or size or personality type of dog.
We have a few different “versions” of the Kong in our house:
- the classic red Kong
- one blue one
- one black Kong (“for extreme chewers”)
- the tennis ball covered round ring that floats
- the tennis ball covered stick that floats
- the Kong bone for a change of pace
Our dog loves them all. We actually save the tennis ball ones for “special times” — like when we’re at the lake or in a pool. It’s like they’re brand new toys to him each time!
I like to help Dog Parents find unique ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about "outside the box" Dog Tips and Dog Hacks that most wouldn't think of. I’m a lifelong dog owner — currently have 2 mixed breed Golden Aussies that we found abandoned on the side of the road as puppies. I've always trained my own dogs and help friends train theirs, as well. Professionally, I worked at a vet and have several friends who are veterinarians — whom I consult with regularly. (And just because I love animals so much, I also worked at a Zoo for awhile!) I've been sharing my best ideas with others by blogging full-time since 1998 (the same year that Google started… and before the days of Facebook and YouTube). My daily motivation is to help first-time dog owners be better prepared from the first day your new puppy enters your home. I like to help dog owners understand what's 'normal' and what you can expect in terms of living with and training your dog — how to get through the ups & downs of potty training, chewing, teaching commands, getting your dog to listen, and everything else that takes place during that hectic first year! When I'm not training, walking, grooming, or making homemade treats for my dogs, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites). To date, I've written over 500 articles for dog owners on this site!
