A public service announcement for the Kong Wobbler!

Hello to all our furry and not-so-furry friends! It's me, Patches! A few weeks ago, we were asked, by the Kong Company, to test and write a review for their Kong Wobbler. Our package arrived a few days ago and it even included some IQ Salmon treats! Our mom says the treats are very stinky, but hey, we say, "The stinkier, the better!" They are just the right kind of stinky to get our attention when they are inside the the Kong Wobbler!

I gotta tell ya, this Kong Wobbler is the greatest! The first time I tried it, Mom hadn't put enough treats in it and I had a really hard time with it. She shook it until a treat fell out and of course, I pounced on it right away. Then I kept looking on the carpet, for another treat. Our mom finally put more treats in it and then it got my attention!

After a few minutes, I figured out that if I stick my snooter in the hole, I can smell the yummy salmon treats! I tried biting the hole, but that didn't work. I finally got so frustrated that I put the big paw smackdown on the Kong and then a treat fell out of the hole! Woohoo...jackpot! Now, being the smart Aire-girl that I am, I figured that if one smackdown gave me one treat, then several smackdowns should give me lots of treats! It worked!

We only had two problems with our Kong Wobbler. I growled at Penny when she came near it and it doesn't give me nearly enough treats! Mom says that those problems are not the fault of the Kong...it will only give out however many treats are put IN!

If you want to have some real fun, you need to get one of these cool toys! Remember, though, they are only for dogs over 25 pounds. The bottom is weighted so it can't really fall over, but a small doggie might get whapped on the head when it pops back up after the smackdown!

We have to give the Kong Wobbler 8 paws up! We would give the IQ salmon treats 50 paws up, if we HAD 50 paws. They are the ultimate in yumminess AND they are all natural! The ingredients are as follows: Salmon. Yep, that's it...just salmon. No grain or fillers or anything else. Just salmon!

We hope you've enjoyed our Kong Wobbler review. Now, go GET one! You will love it! And what a fun way to get foodables!

Patches (and Penny, who has to play with the Kong Wobbler when I'm outside alone)!

The Kong's are a beloved item around here too. But we just have 3 of the super-duper extra-strength/ extra-large ones due to Roux's jaws of death. She has torn apart two of the red ones in a very short time. Really happy to see you enjoying your Wobbler test Kong. Have a great day!

Excellent review Patches! We love Kong products around here so we will give this a try. Those salmon treats sound super delish. You have a great future as a product tester!

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Patches. Well. Since we aren't 25 pounds, we're guessing Moma won't be bringing a Kong Wobbler home to us. (sniffle) But. Those salmon treats? Well THAT'S another story! They sound delicious!

Drooling now,
Jake and Fergs

They are the BEST! I love mine!

Gus said...

very good review...we might look for one of those before the trip. Keep us busy in the hotel rooms.

We agree, the stinkier the better. In fact, we prefer rancid.
We have those Kong toys too. They are fantastic. We love when she fills them with something stinky, too.

We have the black ones because they're "indestructible". Max and Pekoe had the big red ones and they managed to chew bits off them so they're pinkie took them away.

However, the Kong Wobbler is a different product that's marketed in this country. It sort of looks like an Octopus in an orange neoprene wetsuit, with long dangly bits at the end. You take it to the beach, throw it in the water and it floats.

Will Sugar Corn Pops cereal fit inside? We want one of those too!

Love ya lots,

Dexter said...

Thank you for that wonderful product review. I have no doubt that were I to get one that PeeWee would growl at me too.


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Seriously...if I got one of those Kongie things for Lacie, all I'd have to do is give it a big paw smackdown and it would KONG her on the head....

Stan throws back his large head and Dale snorts with uproarious laughter...

Count me in...I'm gonna go and look at them now!!

Now girlies...I'm sure Mumsie will incarcerate the little dogs so I can have my special kong all to my dale self!! She's all about safety!

Sorry we've been so tardy in gettin round to the bloggies!!

Great review - thanks for telling us about the Kong wobbler. We have regular kongs that we have in our crates after Mom stuffs them with peanut butter and treats and freezes them. We will have to see if she will get us a wobbler or two or three. We definitely would love those salmon treats, the stinkier the better.

hey kids, our human just bought us one of those kong wobblers a couple of weeks ago. we have fun with it too. we smack it down and then we push it with our noses all over the floor until the treats come out. we like it just great, but we think it needs more holes so more treats come out faster.


Lorenza said...

Good review!
But... I guess it is too big for me!
Take care
Kisses and hugs
