Here’s why Puppy ZIGGIES are great for young pups and adult dogs, alike. And why dog owners love ’em too!
Puppy ZIGGIES are low in fat, high in protein and calcium enriched for growing bones and healthy teeth. The flavor and texture are irresistible. Independent analysis confirms Puppy ZIGGIES are 95% digestible and highly palatable.

Our Dogs’ First Kong Ziggies
We have 2 dogs — both Black Lab mixes, aged 7 months and 3 years.
We got them both the “Large” size Kong Ziggies to snack on.
These long-lasting dog treats have a chewy texture that won’t crack or splinter.
That’s probably the best thing about these dog chews, in my opinion. I like not having to worry about what the dogs are putting in their mouths — for a change.
The KONG Company says their safe, firm, chewy texture consists of “vegetable derived glycerin and glycerides of edible fatty acids.”
They are made of “pure wheat gluten and chicken liver”… which means they’re high in protein.
On top of that, they include natural alfalfa and parsley which help to reduce bad breath, gas, and feces odors.
Overall, both of my dogs love Puppy ZIGGIES!
I like ’em because they last a little longer than your typical dog treat. In fact, our younger dog (Tenor) actually got tired of gnawing on his after awhile & he needed to give his jaw a rest.
Here’s another review of Kong Ziggies:
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!
