Back in the 1970s mechanic Joe Markham recognised that his ex-police dog Fritz was attempting to entertain himself by chewing rocks. Knowing the hazards this presented, Joe one day tossed Fritz a piece of Volkswagen Bus rubber suspension part that Joe was working on - and Fritz loved it! Joe then worked to make a dog toy with the same durability and feel, until he created the KONG toy that people (and their dogs) all around the world love. KONG dog toys encourage play, satisfying instinctual needs and strengthening the bond between dog and pet parent. Built for durability, KONG dog toys also offer mental and physical stimulation, all whilst meeting the innate need of dogs to play.
The Kong Gyro treat dispensing toy for food driven dogs needs to be pushed, pawed and rolled to dispense treats or kibble from the centre spinning orb, making it a tricky puzzle toy for inquisitive, independent dogs.
Providing environmental enrichment through treat dispensing puzzle toys can help to keep your dog mentally stimulated, avoid boredom and help manage behavioural issues such as separation anxiety.
