It can be a bit confusing knowing which KONG toy size to buy for your pet. For your convenience we have prepared an interactive Kong Size chart / table to help you select the correct size for your dog.

Kong's vary depending on your pet's age and weight. And there is a separate version for dogs that are also extreme chewers, thus requiring a heavy duty chew toy.

KONG Classic Toy Versions Explained

First of all, let's discuss the KONG Company's four Kong toy versions. Three of the Kong toys are designed around the age of your pet. A fourth is designed for a pet that is a power chewer and requires a heavy duty dog toy. Each type is color coded to make it easy to identify which type of toy it is.

Puppy KONG

Kong Puppy Kong ToyAs the name suggests, this KONG puppy toy is suitable for puppies. However, note that the asterisked / starred (*) entries in the KONG size chart alongside the dog breeds that grow particularly quickly indicate that the size is only appropriate for while the puppy is very young.

Dog Safety With The Kong Classic Toy

Your dog's safety is your responsibility. You should supervise your pet's initial use of the toy to ensure it is being used safely. This includes ensuring that your dog is unable to destroy the toy, and ensuring that you buy the correct size.

If your pet is destroying the toy, it should be disposed of and replaced either with a larger size or with a KONG Extreme. Note that while the KONG Extreme is produced for power chewer dogs, it should still NOT be assumed to be indestructible. If your dog is able to break the toy then dispose of it immediately.

If you have a multiple dog household, then only buy the KONG size toy suitable for the largest dog. This is to ensure that there is no danger to the larger dog from having access to a toy that is too small for him or her, which would present a risk of choking or suffocation.

Where To Buy The KONG Classic Toy

You can buy the KONG classic toy through Amazon. On the product page you will then have the option to select the appropriate size toy for your pet. Click the Kong toy of interest:
