Rope In a Good Time
KONG’s Squeezz with Rope Toys Raise the Fun Factor
GOLDEN, Colo. – When they were introduced last year, KONG’s Squeezz toys were a hit with dogs and owners everywhere, as much for their crazy, unpredictable ways of bouncing and rolling as for their recessed, distinctive-sounding squeakers and vibrant, jewel tone colors. But KONG, the makers of the famous original red rubber KONG toy, knows that not only do dogs like to play with toys that bounce and roll, they like to play games of tug, too. So KONG took the wildly popular Squeezz toys and combined them with strong, sturdy rope, creating the new Squeezz with Rope Toys, for the ultimate in playtime fun! Perfect for tug games – and even a good round of toss – the new Squeezz with Rope Toys give dogs and their owners options when it comes to playtime any time of the year.
With the addition of durable nylon rope in colors that coordinate with the original Squeezz colors – amethyst, emerald, ruby and sapphire – to three of its popular Squeezz shapes, KONG’s new Squeezz with Rope toys are the definitive tug toys. The Squeezz Dumbbell has knotted rope tails on either end that add an interesting texture and give dogs and their owners a handle for throwing. The Squeezz Ball and Squeezz Ring have added rope loops and a color-coordinated comfort-grip handle for a secure hold during tug games. KONG also took two Squeezz balls and joined them with rope loops to create the Squeezz Double Ball with Rope, a versatile, all-purpose toy ideal for any playtime situation.
Like the original Squeezz toys, the Squeeze with Rope Toys are designed to hold a dog’s attention. Their unpredictable and erratic bouncing and surprising motions have a purpose beyond entertaining dogs for hours on end – they’re specifically designed to appeal to a dog’s innate chase drive, which all dogs need to exercise periodically for physical and mental health. Plus, embedded within each Squeezz with Rope Toy is the same uniquely melodic squeaker found in the original Squeezz that’s music to a dog’s ears. The squeakers are recessed within the toys to protect them from teeth – even needle-sharp puppy teeth – yet they’re sensitive enough to sound off with slight pressure. Additionally, the bright, vibrant colors mean there’s less of a chance for the toys to get lost – they’re easy for dog owners to see in any situation from the green grass of a dog park, to the white snow in wintertime, and anywhere in between!
KONG’s Squeezz with Rope Toys are available in Medium and Large, and four shapes: Dumbbell, Ball, Ring and Double Ball. The Dumbbell is also available in Small. They have MSRP’s of $6.99 to $15.99 and are available online and at pet retailers nationwide.
