From the Manufacturer – KONG Company
FETCH TOY: The KONG Classic’s unpredictable bounce makes for exciting games of fetch and other interactive play with your pet.
AVERAGE CHEWING DOGS: The KONG Classic red rubber formula is created for average chewing dogs.
GREAT FOR STUFFING: The stuffable KONG Classic is even more enticing when stuffed with peanut butter and treats. Dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.
KONG Classic is made of natural rubber. There are two considerations when purchasing a KONG, size, and color.
Size: Make sure the Kong is not too small for your dog. When in doubt always size up. Available sizes: X-Small, Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, XX-Large. https://www.kongcompany.com/learn/size-guide
Color: KONG toys are color-coordinated to represents its rubber hardness and ability to withstand different levels of chewing.
Your Kong may be used outside for games of fetch. However, they should not be left outside. The rubber will dry out and crack in the sunshine and heat.
If you are looking for one that floats to use for water retrieval the KONG Aqua has a foam core that keeps it floating while your dog swims out to fetch it. (I would not allow them to chew on this one due to the foam core.)
Stuffing the Kong with your dog’s favorite snacks or meals is good for mental and physical stimulation keeping your dog busy.
