For dogs of all sizes, ages and breeds KONG’s chew toy will keep them busy, active and help with behavioural problems. We like the fact there’s a version especially designed for puppies’ needs too. If you’re looking for a more interactive toy, the Aerobie Dogobie or the Good Boy ball are winners for those games of fetch.
