Do you know the story of KONG? The most famous KONG toy was created out of need and love for one pet. The company’s founder, Joe Markham, loved his Fritz, a retired police dog, deeply, but did not like his destructive habit of chewing things from sticks to rocks… His teeth condition was getting worse and worse, but Fritz’s need for entertainment and chewing did not fade, what was especially frustrating for Joe. One day, while he was fixing his car, Joe was throwing different parts to Fritz, only to make him stop chewing stones. Fritz accepted a rubber suspension with great enthusiasm and brought it back to Joe to play. The bounce and toughness were the inspiration for the development of KONG toys.
KONG product range today includes toys for dogs and cats of various shapes and materials, and pets’ treats and equipment.
