What is the Kong?
It’s a kind of beehive shaped cone, made with an animal safe rubber suited for being chewed ( hard or soft depending on which version) to be filled with food or appetizing creams. It’s conception dates back to 1976 but it is nothing more than a toy like many others, with a slightly higher cost than more common accessories but is practically everlasting because of the highly resistant material with which it’s made. This toy facilitates chewing and biting, activity that permits the release of endorphins, as a consequence after having played with the Kong the dog will feel serene, more relaxed and less stressed.

HOW TO USE IT
It’s designed to bee filled with treats, special creams that you can find in animal shops but even more simply spreadable cheese( better in small doses…… never exaggerate with dairy products) The objective will be to get to these treats by making the toy bounce or biting it.
The Kong , however, being it a mental activator, is also suitable for search-games( hide it somewhere and give the “GO!” command so as to get the dog to look for it) In time you can go on to specific commands like “ Find your Kong”;
You can put it in a bowl full of water and ask your furry friend to get it.
The Kong is a lot of fun for dogs so it can represent both a toy and for all intensive purposes a reward, you can use it to reinforce positive behavior: “ you’ve been very good! Now you can play with your Kong!!
