Kong Puppy Tire
We absolutely love the Kong brand because of how durable their products are. The KONG Puppy Tire doesn’t disappoint and is specifically designed to ease teething gums. It has a stuffable inner track that you can fill with treats and peanut butter. Freeze it for more of a challenge and a longer play time.

Puppies just love to chew on knotted rope and relieve some pressure on their teeth. An extra benefit of chewing on the rope is that it cleans their teeth, reduces plaque build-up and massages the gums. The KONG Puppy Goodie Bone with Rope fits the bill. Plus you can play a fun game of tug-of-war too!

Consider this as more a gift for yourself.
