KONG’s New Traxx Dog Toys are “Monster Truck” Tires for Aggressive Chewers

January 25, 2012

KONG Traxx look like mini-monster truck tires and are ideal for playtime and treat-dispensing.

GOLDEN, Colo. – When the KONG Company developed its Extreme KONG, a rough-and-tumble version of its iconic red KONG toy just for aggressive chewers, it kept the classic conical KONG shape with the concentric rings for maximum bounceability and stuffability.  Now the company has taken the same tough, durable rubber used in the Extreme KONG and molded it into a fun, new shape – new KONG Traxx toys are just as sturdy and strong as the Extreme KONG, but in a bold “monster truck” tire shape, and like the original KONG and Extreme KONG, there’s plenty of room inside for treats!

Big and bold, the KONG Traxx is made for aggressive chewers of all sizes.  The round toy looks just like a monster truck tire done in miniature, complete with molded KONG branding on the sides and a unique checkerboard tread on the “road” surface.  This tire is so realistic, it’s ready to roll and make “traxx!”  But not before adding some goodies – the inner rim of each Traxx toy has been left hollow and has a unique treat-gripping design perfect for holding a dog’s favorite treats, such as KONG’s own Stuff’n Easy Treat, Peanut Butter and Liver Snacks, Ziggies, Goldies, Real Peanut Butter or Spreads.

KONG’s black rubber compound not only makes the Traxx toys great for aggressive chewers, but it also makes them ideal fetch toys – like the red rubber KONG, the extreme rubber bounces unpredictably for wild, fun fetching games, and the round tire shape of Traxx adds a new dimension – rolling!  Traxx toys bounceANDroll, for a truly unique and interesting option for days at the dog park, afternoons in the back yard or a romp on the beach.

The ultra-strong, ultra-durable black rubber compound used to make KONG Traxx toys is designed to stand up to the aggressiveness of the most powerful chewers, and is recommended by veterinarians and dog trainers.  Like the original KONG and the Extreme KONG, a treat-filled KONG Traxx toy can help reduce boredom and separation anxiety – giving a dog a stuffed KONG toy before leaving the house will keep dogs focused on the toy and the food inside rather than his owner’s departure, which can prevent destructive behavior such as chewing on furniture.

USA-made KONG Traxx toys come in two sizes – Small, approximately 3.5” in diameter, for small to medium-sized dogs; and Medium/Large, about 4.5” in diameter for medium to large dogs.  They are available online and at pet retailers nationwide.  For more information, contact Sandra Schlafer at KONG at (303) 216-2626, email or visit

    Just bought one of these at a pet fair, love how it fits over a classic kong to make a two-part toy! The dog can empty the regular kong, then has to figure out how to get the pieces apart, THEN can empty the Traxx!
