KONG’s New Marathon Toy-Treat Combination Goes the Distance
GOLDEN, Colo. – What happens when you combine a delectable, bacon-flavored treat with a durable chew toy? You get KONG Marathon, a challenging new puzzle toy that keeps dogs busy and benefits their oral health. This simple new concept from the innovator of the world’s most iconic dog toy made KONG Marathon an instant hit at this year’s Global Pet Expo.
Unlike a traditional puzzle toy, the Marathon features a hard chew treat that won’t come loose or fall out. The treat locks into the toy, securing it even during energetic chewing. The new treat style also makes replacement a snap – just pop in a new treat and dogs can start all over. The fast refill is perfect for pet parents on the go.
This exciting new combo is the very definition of multi-purpose. KONG Marathon is built to relieve boredom, stress or to provide a rewarding chew session. Even without a treat locked in, the toy is perfect for a lively game of fetch. In addition to the healthy treat, chewing the KONG Marathon helps to clean teeth and freshen breath.
KONG founder Joe Markham is proud to keep raising the bar with new lines of puzzle toys. “We’re always eager to set new challenges for dogs. The Marathon offers something different. This two-in-one toy is quick and simple for owners to use, but keeps our canine kids busy for long periods of time.”
The KONG Marathon is available in two shapes (ball and bone), two sizes (small and large), and three colors (blue, green and pink). The Marathon can simply be hand washed and refilled with a new treat. Treat refill packs are sold separately.
