Choosing the correct size Kong Toy for your Dog is hugely important. As I recently found out with my own Dogs. My Dogs are different breeds and sizes. The size Kong toy I almost chose for them, was way off what they actually required.
The breed of Dog’s I own are a Working Line German Shepherd Dog & a Sprocker Spaniel (Springer cross Cocker Spaniel, for those of you who aren’t quite sure or have never heard of a Sprocker.) Now, the German Shepherd Dog is a large Dog & the Sprocker I would say is a medium size Dog. (My Sprocker is the same size his dad was, a full grown Springer spaniel, however, i am aware many Sprockers are much smaller than this.)
What size Kong Toy did I think my Dogs would need?
I honestly thought that the size Kong toys I would need would be : LARGE for my large German Shepherd & MEDIUM for my medium sized Sprocker! But NOPE, that isn’t the case at all.
So what size Kong Toy do my Dogs require?
I found that the Kong size for my German Shepherd needs to be AT LEAST XL size, in order to reduce the chance of accidents. The size I need for my Sprocker needs to be AT LEAST LARGE size, in order to reduce the chance of accidents. It surprised me too!
