KONG Traxx Durable Tire

Hi my fellow woofies! It’s Dakota and wait til you see the latest toy that I tested that was sent to me by the nice people at KONG! Check it out!

Pretty cool isn’t it? Look at the arrow that says insert treats…that is the BEST part! The first day I had this toy my Mom broke up some of my treats into smaller pieces and tucked them in the handy ridge/opening that goes entirely around the tire. It kept me busy for a while trying to get the treats out. It was fun!

Today, Mom put some of one of my favorite things in the world inside those ridges….PEANUT BUTTER!!! She used the kind from the store but KONG also makes all sorts of things that you can insert inside that ridge that would be equally tasty or even more tasty! KONG even makes their own PEANUT BUTTER FLAVOR stuffing  (and a variety of other flavors), that you can insert, read about it here

Mom tried to take a better photo but she said I was so engrossed I wouldn't come up for air! BOL!

The KONG Traxx is a durable tire chew designed to give the greatest chewing experience. The uniquely shaped side walls and thick outer tread create a super durable, elastic barrier. The side walls are designed to double up and rebound when compressed to offer an active chewing experience, and the Traxx are perfect for bouncy games of fetch.

• Super-durable rubber 
• Tire design for games of fetch and chewing
• Made in the USA

The above information is mostly for Moms and Dads who care about the “technical” part of our toys. Me? I could care less! I just want something that I can chew without getting yelled at! If it has something tasty inside, that’s all the better!

Enjoy this super boring video of me just eating and eating away! Lucky for you it is quite short! Oh and watch my jealous brother Cody checking out my KONG TRAXX!


Cody wishes that he had one too!

Thanks to the great people at KONG for my KONG TRAXX!

I was not compensated for this post. I was just given a KONG TRAXX to enjoy and have fun with!

I sure did!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota


You Can Get Cozy With KONG Cozies! A Give-Away!

Gather round the computer woofies! “Lend me your ears!” (well I guess since this is a blog that would be EYES!!)

Boy oh boy was my tail ever waggin’ when I received a giant box of goodies from KONG! Any dog worth his bones knows that KONG manufactures some of the most durable, superb quality, creative toys on the planet.  The KONG toys aren’t the type that are ruined in one enthusiastic bite, no sirree!! These babies are made to last!

Speaking of babies, KONG now has a line of plush toys called Cozies.  I know, I know, you think you are a tough doggie but we all get our times when we start thinking of  how life was when we were pups  and we just get the urge to cuddle! Or, we feel like picking something up, shaking it or throwing it, not to be mean mind you, but just to put some fun into our routine!

These are the toys in the KONG Cozie Collection. Aren’t they just the cutest?  They have:

  • Minimal filling for minimal mess
  • Extra layer of material to increase strength
  • Squeak to help entice play
  • Not for chew sessions
  • 10 fun characters: Ali the Alligator, Baily the Blue Dog, Elmer the Elephant, Buster the Koala, King the Lion, Spunky the Monkey, Marvin the Moose, Floppy the Bunny, Rosie the Rhino and Tupper the Lamb
Here are the KONG Cozies that I received:
In this photo we have (from left to right), “Tupper The Lamb”, “Floppy The Bunny”, Baily The Blue Dog”, “Spunky The Monkey” and “King The Lion!”
It was soooo hard to choose which one I wanted. I had to carefully inspect the box, sniff each one for quality control, and I even had to taste the box to see what type of packaging material was used. All of this to make sure that they met my high standards.

It was so difficult to choose! Each Cozie really lives up to its name.  Doggy friends these are the softest and most cuddly toys EVER!

Want to know which Cozie toy I chose for myself?

I won’t keep you in suspense any longer. I chose:


I love this monkey so much that  I just had to smell him, kiss him and put the “bitey” on him! He took it all like the good sport that he is!

My brother,  Cody even tried to get in on the action!

Hey "Cat Chat" Boy!! That's MY Monkey! Give him back!

Can I play with Spunky too Mom?

Cody can’t play with Spunky or any of the other KONG Cozies. Want to know why? Because the extra four KONG Cozies aren’t for me!

The incredibly kind and generous people at KONG said that FOUR OF YOU CAN WIN ONE!!

Yep you heard that right!

FOUR OF YOU can each win ONE KONG Cozie that my Mom will mail directly to you! (THE CONTEST IS OPEN TO EVERYBODY since my Mom is doing the mailing!)
