The Kong was foundered by Joe Markham, the owner of a German Shepherd dog that had destructive chewing habits. One day the dog was chewing on a piece of rubber suspension from a VW Bus when he bought it to Joe and dropped it in his lap. The erratic bounce and toughness of the rubber inspired Joe. 

Kongs have been made from their own proprietary, pet-safe, built-to-chew rubber ever since. Dogs love Kong. The way it bounces keeps them engaged and ready to play. It has a soft mouth feel for a satisfying chew and, of course, it’s super durable. Owners love Kong too; they can stuff it, throw it, leave it out in the yard — Kong keeps coming back for more.

Dogs and their owners choose the original Kong and all of their other favorite toys because they’re fun. Kong toys are the best of the best in quality, originality, variety, safety, and value. Give your dog a Kong. They’ll be the first to show you: it’s not just a toy, it’s a Kong.
