Like its larger siblings, the Puppy Dog Toys from the KONG line of interactive products are deceptively simple. While these products seem like your average chew toys, the design and material of the Puppy KONG keeps younger pooches engaged and active.
When introducing the Puppy KONG to our tester dog, he became interested immediately. The surface — especially formulated for teething — was satisfying for him, and didn’t seem to cause any discomfort. And the design of the toy is ideal for the smaller mouths of puppies. As a bonus, the Puppy KONG can be frozen and then reintroduced to your dog, as a way to comfort the pain of teething.
But this multi-use toy is more than just a chew toy or a relief for frozen gums. As with other KONG products, a dab of peanut butter inside the toy can engage your puppy even further while providing him with a tasty treat, and can encourage positive chewing (by keeping his mind off of your equally appealing shoes!).
Bottom line: The Puppy KONG Dog Toys feature all of the durability and quality of their older siblings, with additional bonuses for the younger puppy.
Pros: Design works well for puppies; multiple uses to comfort and engage puppies.

My two puppies were miserable in their kennel. I would try small treats every time I passed by, kept them in the bedroom, moved them to the living room... nothing worked. My boyfriend and I spoil our puppies. They even have their own bedroom so that they can spread out and play when we're gone. We even purchased the largest kennel made for the two of them. There was no pleasing them if we left the house and didn't take them with us (it's getting hot here in North Carolina and having a dog in the car is one of the worst things that I can imagine). Finally, I broke down and bought the Puppy Kong. Best decision I ever made. I would put a portion of their kibble in it and a teaspoon of peanut butter to keep it all in and freeze it. When we leave, they each have their own toy. It keeps them busy forever! We give it to them about ten to fifteen minutes before we leave and they don't even made a sound... except for the sounds of them scooting it around the floor of their kennel licking and biting it. WOW! Now we're trying a treat and some warm peanut butter around the edges at night before bedtime. This thing works miracles!
Cons: Can be a bit addictive.
