I love Kongs. But there is a Kong conundrum:
They are beloved, classic toys with a million and one uses.
Yet, they are THE toys that my clients complain about the most. I know that’s partially because Kongs are so popular that nearly every dog guardian has one. But the main complaint is, “My dog won’t play with it.” So, I wrote this post to help you & your dogs love your Kongs again!

Can you feel it, too? It’s the Great Transformation!

Perhaps you’ve noticed that you are doing things differently?

That what’s-cuter-than-kittens? time of year is upon us again. Are you expecting the pitter-patter of four tiny furry paws in your home?  You’re in for a simultaneously adorable, confounding, & sleep deprived rest-of-the-year.

Does Fluffy come running when you use a can opener?
Does Maxi use his litter box or his scratching post?
Congratulations – you’ve succeeded in teaching your cat a behavior!

Are you thinking about adopting a kitten?
Before you do, consider welcoming an older kitty into your home.
Your local shelter has lots of wonderful cats available for adoption, many of which are adult cats with much to offer you and your family.

Before you bring Kitty home, you need to do some “redecorating”.
Your cat will need a safe indoor haven (usually a room with a door that can be closed), complete with all the comforts & necessities of a cat’s home.
