Fall Frolic

Enjoy the Cool Autumn Weather with KONG’s Squeezz Toys for Dogs

KONG's Squeezz toys come in a variety of shapes and colors that make them easy to spot in a pile of leaves.

GOLDEN, Colo. The days are getting shorter and cooler, and the leaves are turning brilliant shades of yellow, orange and red and falling from the trees.  Yes, summer is over and trips to the beach need to be put aside until next year, but when KONG’s Squeezz toys are in a dog’s toy box, fun for dogs and their owners doesn’t have to be put away, too!  Squeezz toys are real gems, in fun shapes and brilliant jewel tones of ruby, sapphire, amethyst and emerald, but their appeal goes beyond their attractiveness, right into the backyards and neighborhood dog parks of dogs everywhere.

The cool autumn weather provides a welcome respite from the hot, humid days of summer, and the rich browns, rusts and golds of falling leaves offer a beautiful carpet on which dogs can romp to their heart’s content.  But sometimes toys can get lost in the crunching chaos of a leaf-covered lawn, which is one of the reasons KONG designed Squeezz toys with bright colors – they are easy to see in any environment, including fallen leaves that blanket the ground in backyards and dog parks at this time of year.  Then the company gave Squeezz toys six distinctive shapes – Ball, Stick, Bone, Football, Dumbbell and Ring – all of which are designed to roll and bounce in unpredictable, erratic ways, making chase and fetching games a whole lot more fun.

To be sure, the surprising motions of Squeezz toys stimulate the chase drive in dogs, setting off hours of pure canine enjoyment, but KONG has also added a recessed and protected squeaker to each toy, which makes a distinctive sound that’s music to a dog’s ears, and audible above the rustling of falling leaves.  The squeaker’s position within the thermoplastic rubber body of Squeezz toys protects it from light chewing yet enables it to be activated with a simple squeeze from a dog – or the dog’s human.  Additionally, Squeezz toys come in a variety of sizes, so all dogs, from the tiniest of teacup Chihuahuasto the grandest of Great Danes, can enjoy a fabulous fall frolic in the leaves.

KONG’s Squeezz toys have MSRP’s of 4.99 to $11.99 depending on the size and shape of the toy, and are available online and at pet retailers nationwide.  For more information, contact KONG at (303) 216-2626, email or visit
