Product Description

Large, Black, Extreme Dog Toy, Ultra Strong Black Rubber Compound Is Recommended For Power Chewers, Stuffable Treat Dispensing Toy, Supervised Use Is Recommended For Power Chewers.

Used by police, drug enforcement teams, and the military for training working dogs, this super-tough toy stands up to jaws of steel. Even if your dog's job rarely takes him off the couch, the Kong Extreme's goofy, unpredictable bounce makes for hours of chasing and fetching fun--just the thing for animals whose life in the wild consists of tracking, killing, chewing, and then doing the same thing all over again. When you're away, simply stuff the hollow interior with treats or gooey peanut butter, and extracting the contents becomes a "hunt" to keep any pooch happy and busy all workday long. Chewing Kongs helps promote strong jaws, clean teeth, and general oral health. Even aggressive "power chewers" will find it hard to bite through carbon-formula Ultra Flex, and dogs with separation anxiety or problem behaviors like barking and digging will especially benefit from the mental and physical stimulation.

Kongs are made in the USA from a thick, flexible rubber that's non-toxic, non-splintering, and puncture-resistant. This black Kong Extreme is appropriate for medium- to large-sized aggressive chewers, including smaller Labs and golden retrievers. Supervised play is highly recommended, especially when first giving a Kong toy to your dog. Regularly inspect the Kong for cracks or missing chunks, and replace worn or damaged toys to avoid a choking hazard. Satisfaction is guaranteed; if either you or your dog aren't happy with your purchase, return within 30 days for a full refund. --Mary Park

  • tough toy for house full of tough chewers!
    I have 3 labs and an australian cattle dog who are all major chewers. They love this toy especially with a little peanut butter spread on the inside- hours of enjoyment!...more info
  • Kong dog toy
    The Kong dog toy was exactly what we wanted for out Lab. She greeted it with enthusiasm and pleasure. "Everyone" is satisfied!...more info
  • Better off with Large bone
    Our two year old lab had this thing chewed up in less than 45 minutes. A large bone will last just as long, plus your dog won't swallow the small rubber pieces that it chews up....more info
  • Tough to handle but well worth the effort
    Because I have not yet succeeded in full insertion with this unit, I cannot confirm whether or not it will stay in securely once inserted. The small version of this does not stay in reliably, as I noted in the review for that unit. This one looks like it might be more reliable, because there is a more significant difference between the diameter of the large bulb and the diameter of the shank leading to the base. This threshold tends to make the unit move inward when the muscle is clenched, rather than being expelled. Also, the length of this shank is 1-1/4", which would also tend to enhance retention of it. ...more info

    I have a Staffordshire Bull Terrier and this is the only toy he doesn't destroy within one day. ...more info
  • Review of XL Kong
    An appropriately sized Kong is a must have for any dog owner. Our dog differentiates her Kong by name and carries it from her crate to the kitchen for reloading in the morning. The Extreme XL is perfect for our smaller lab (65lbs) and it holds about a half cup of food. When she was about 1 she was able to chew the edge of the opening off, we replaced that one 3 months ago and the new one is fine so far.

    Good luck

  • Cost me $3500
    This "puncture resistant" toy was torn up by my 10-pound chihuahua mix while I was at work and ended up blocking his intestines. He required immediate attention and surgery to the tune of $3500 altogether. Nothing but cloth toys from now on.

  • Best Toy for chewers
    I have a dachshund/silky terrier mix. He LOVES to chew the kong and other toys and rope tugs. The large or extra-large black kong lasts forever (well, months). I can fit small treats in it, which pleases the dog no end.

    4 instead of 5 stars because it stinks BAD of rubber for a few days.

  • Extreme Kong
    FINALLY ... a toy strong enough to survive a playful little Lab. Cheyenne has destroyed all other toys in the blink of an eye. But KONG Extreme Kong is very durable and lots of fun for her. If it ever DOES wear out, we will certainly buy another. But, looks like this toy is a keeper for a longggg time!!...more info
  • Da best chew toy for a pitbull and golden retriever
    Its been over a month and going strong. My pitbull and golden retrvr loves to tear up other rubber toys in no time. They would chew on it for awhile then give up on this extreme kong. At least they have something to occupy them when they feel like chewing. I think they're happier if they can destroy it. Either you're willing to keep spending money on toys or you can stick with this extrm kong. Spend the extra money on this kong and it will last longer. I also have the galileo nylabone for them to chew also. Give them a variey so they wont get bored.
    Update 5-6-09. After 2mos. they started to get it piece by piece. Finally after half of it tore up,I threw it away. ...more info

  • Good News/Bad News
    The good news is that my 70 lb. Labradoodle loves this and almost any other chew toy. The bad news is that it took her about an hour to tear it into tiny pieces. If you have a strong chewer then this is not the right toy for them (but what is)....more info
  • so far it's lasted 2 weeks...
    Important note: the extreme Kong is NOT the same as the red Kong, which apparently is much flimsier. I got this for my neighbor's good-natured pit bull Major, after seeing him shred everything else. Thin rubber squeaky toys last only a few hours, nylabones perhaps a day or two, and even the thick rubber chill pill got shredded. But the Kong Extreme has (to my surprise) remained intact. I had begun to think that only a chunk of cinderblock would survive...maybe. Extreme Kong takes funny bounces (which apparently is part of the idea. Toys with rope handles made for better slobber-avoiding toss-and-fetching, but handles got chewed off very quickly. You can throw this by poking your finger in the holes and tossing--it's marginally better in terms of slobber than many other toys. Kong comes in different sizes--the largest may outweigh your toy Chihuahua, so be judicious. If a neighbor has a pit bull, getting on his good side is important, even if he is as good-natured as Major!...more info
  • Ok I guess...
    I'm giving this 2 stars only because I haven't seem my dog really interested in this product. I bought this so he can have something to chew. lol So far no luck!...more info
  • Extremely fun for dogs
    This Kong is by far the best Kong for dogs that love to chew. I mean LOVE to chew. My dog chewed through a pink puppy Kong at 8 months, a red normal Kong at a year and after that this is the only one we buy because it is the only one that lasts. Great fun for extreme chewers like my Kennedy....more info
  • Great chew toy for dogs!

  • kong chew review
    diesel dog loves kong chew toys--they provide him with a challange & entertainment--he's an aggressive chewer & these are the only products that last more than 1 day--i highly recommend kong products to anyone who has a cat or a dog...more info
  • black kong-size large
    I was disappointed when I opened the box and the "large kong extreme" was so small. My 65lb. Golden Doodle lost interest in it in only a short time. ...more info
  • KONG
    Great product. I use these to feed my dog. I put her food in with a little peanut butter. It was recommended to me by her trainer and it works great! It slows her eating down and it helps her mental skills. These are wonderful as she is a chewer and they are quite indestructible.

    Also, I always have an extra Kong with peanut butter kept in the freezer which I give her if I'll be gone for a while. It keeps her mentally stimulated while receiving a treat at the same time....more info
  • Outlasts Jaws of Steel
    I adopted a puppy 2 months ago, a black lab mix that is now 8 to 10 months old. This is my first dog and the foster family I adopted him from disclosed that he is an extreme chewer. Right off the bat we bought him the Extreme Kong Black/Large and it's one of the only toys that are still intact. I recommend this Kong to anyone who has an extreme chewer. We just purchased the Kong Extreme Bone and the Kong Dental Bone on Amazon.com since it seems to be a better investment to shell-out a little more money for the Kong toys that will last forever vs. spending $5-$15 on other toys he'll destroy in one week. So far, the Extreme Kong's seem to stand up to my puppy's jaws of steel, so I'm hoping the Kong Dental Bone (which doesn't come in the Extreme Rubber) lasts just as long as his Extreme Kong seems to last....more info
  • great for a LAB!
    My lab loves this product and he is a strong chewer. We have been using it for over 2 years and so far so good....more info
  • Great toy!
    My dogs love KONG toys! Especially when I stuff them with treats. I have a Dachshund who LOVES to chew things up but this is one toy that he didn't chew up. It's tough and a great toy to put them to bed with. Great toy, will buy again!!...more info
  • SMELLS LIKE GAS, 7 dogs refused it-even loaded with STEAK
    Absolutely HORRIFIC smelling-and yes, tasting. The rubber literally smells like a toxic mixture of gasoline and tires. Now, I am NOT indicating in ANY WAY WHATSOEVER that it is toxic, Im not saying that. I'm just saying that it stinks to high heaven, tastes even worse and NONE of my 7 dogs would have ANYTHING to do with it once they got passed the tasty treats that were on the outer edges of the toy.

    Here ARE THE DE"TAILS"......I initially gave it to my "chewer", 1 of 7 rescue dogs that I am currently caring for. After loading it with peanut butter I waited.........he got a bit of the peanut butter from the very edges cleaned off pretty well, then wouldn't touch it. So, I tried it with the other 6 dogs-one of whom will eat absolutely ANYTHING. Or, at least I thought that at one time. Big Frank wouldn't touch it, either.

    So, I then tried a little experiment. I used some leftover steak trimmings and put them inside the Kong. Shockingly enough, none of the dogs would go near it once they had gotten past the steak taste on the outside of the Kong and got a real good taste of the rubber.

    So, you guessed it. I did it. I had find out what all the "noses in the air" were all about. I washed it THOROUGHLY, (used an old baby bottle brush to get inside it), then stuck my tongue on it just to see.......oh my Lord, I cant even begin to tell you how nasty it smells and tastes. I know exactly why they won't have anything to do with it.

    Now, this is only MY opinion. Take the others into consideration, as it seems to work for some other dogs. Mine, however, wouldn't go near it to save their butts.

  • For extremely extreme chewers, size UP!
    I got the Extreme Kong (black), because my rat terrier had already torn apart a Classic Kong (red). He goes through plush squeaky toys in no time flat. He has chewed pieces out of one Extreme Kong, but not the other two. What have I learned to keep him from shredding Kongs?

    1) Always supervise your dog with this toy (at least until you know how well it will hold up). Yes, the instructions say this. It's not just CYA legal BS. Until you know for SURE that *your* dog can't chew through the Extreme Kong, don't leave him unattended with this toy. (Unfortunately, this means that I can't give it to him in his kennel to alleviate boredom when I leave the house.)

    2) If your dog has already destroyed other toys, consider sizing up from the "recommended" size. My dogs weighs 25 lb, which is solidly in the "medium" range, but the Large Kong is better for his extreme chewing. The Extreme Kong he tore apart was a Medium. He hasn't managed to tear apart the Large yet.

    3) Don't fill it all the way with peanut butter. Stuff the bottom 1/2 - 2/3 with dry food or treats and the clog the top 1/3 or so with something soft like peanut butter. If you fill the whole thing with something that's impossible to get out without tearing the toy apart, your dog will tear the toy apart.

    4) Wash it on a regular basis. I have more than one Kong so I can still use one while the other is being washed. I like to soak mine in warm, soapy water for a few hours before sticking it in the dishwasher. This seems to get it clean even if there's peanut butter in the crevices. Dried on dheese can be a bit harder to clean out (I use the pointy end of a spoon or even a toothbrush to get at those bits).

    5) If you notice your Kong is showing wear, replace it. Once it starts to give, your extreme chewer can destroy it pretty fast. Don't let him get that far!

    No toy is indestructible, but the Extreme Kong lasts longer than anything else I've found. Read the insert that comes with your Kong and follow the recommendations to keep your dog safe and entertained....more info
  • Great for strong chewers
    This is the only toy that my lab mix and Bouvier have not tore up. They are both strong chewers and these have held up great. They have had them for a month now and they are still intact....more info
  • Best Toy
    My dogs love to chew and this kong toy has stood up to the test and I have spent lots of money on trying different items. They seem to enjoy this kong and it is great b/c I can challenge them by putting treats inside. Not the tot treats though for they will only fall out. But the peanut butter paste and large kong treats do well. ...more info
  • Kong dog toy
    The Kong dog toy was exactly what we wanted for out Lab. She greeted it with enthusiasm and pleasure. "Everyone" is satisfied!...more info
  • Nothing is forever
    My dog went through two of the classic red kongs in about 3 weeks. The "extreme" black kong lasted her about a month. This toy did last longer but it is by no means indestructible. ...more info
  • Great Product
    My dog loves this toy. I fill it with her food and it keeps her busy for hours. Even after it is empty, she contiues to look for the "treat" inside....more info
  • Large Kong
    The toy arrived in good shape and one time. Only problem is that the dog ignores it....more info
  • Extreme Kong shredded by a 10 lb mini-schnauzer
    These probably are the toughest toys around. Still our little Mini-Schnauzer bites off chunks. We need to watch when we give him peanut butter or bisquits inside and as soon as he has gotten the reward, rescue the Kong. Even this largest size Extreme Kong gets nibbled away....more info
  • Extremely Durable
    The kong toys are the only toys durable enough for my blue heeler! They keep him occupied long enough to give you an occasional break!! After owning this one for a year, the entrance hole is finally cracking, but that is to be expected after being chewed on for a year!
