When we arrived at Meet the Breeds last month we were pleased to find the folks from Kong in the booth next to ours. After the show was over and it was time to pack up, Jared from Kong had some display items he didn’t want to have shipped back to the office, so he asked if I’d like to take them. Well, YEAH! Buster and Ty would disown me if I didn’t.
The thing I was most excited to receive was the Kong Wobbler.
A little background: When Ty was a puppy we got him this orange ball that drops treats. Six years later, he still loves it. He will patiently push it around with his nose for hours if the morsels keep appearing. It’s made of a soft plastic, which is fine for Ty – he’s very gentle with his toys and can barely get his mouth around the ball to pick it up.
Buster is a different story. If toy destruction was an Olympic event, Buster would have a gold medal. Though the boys share most of their toys, I haven’t let Buster play with Ty’s ball. I worried his patience would run out, he’d chew through the plastic to get to the treats, and Ty’s little heart would be broken.
Enter: the Wobbler! It’s made of hard plastic that Buster cannot chew, it’s dishwasher safe, and it’s easy to fill. Most importantly, Buster LOVES it.
We fill each of the dogs dispensers and enjoy a rambunctious 15 minutes as they race to see who can empty their toy first.
Extra Special Treat
Little did I know that what appeared to be a simple bag of Kong’s new Ziggies was also going to be cause for excitement. These treats are made to be stuffed inside the small Kong toys, but I found they fit perfectly in the Kong Goodie Bones. I’ve always had trouble filling these odd shaped holes with something that didn’t fall out instantly, or get so stuck that the dogs got discouraged and gave up. Problem solved!
Would your dog would enjoy these toys and treats like these? While poking around on Kong’s website I discovered they are giving away twenty (yes, 20!) toy and treat baskets (each with a retail value of more than $100) just for signing up to receive their free quarterly newsletter.

Buster and Ty always choose a toy that involves food over one that doesn’t. What’s your dogs favorite toy?
Disclosure: We received this toy and treats for free. I did not promise to provide a positive review (or even write a blog post) in exchange for products, and I was not paid for this post or review.
