KONG is King – Product Review of our Samoyed’s Favorite Dog Toy

Despite the Success of the Movie, this KONG is King in Sacha’s Opinion

KONG in King!

I’ve seen tons of advertisements about the movie “Kong: Skull Island” and honestly, I can’t wait to see it. Looks like tons of fun and stars John C. Reilly, one of my favorite actors.

But this review obviously isn’t about the latest King Kong movie, it’s about the KONG Ball, which is king in our household. It’s the awesome dog toy that Sacha just loves!

Truth be told, we’ve been buying KONG products for all of our Samoyeds for years. They are incredibly durable and so well made, and I don’t think we’ve ever had any kind of an issue with them. They’re particularly great for a big breed like Samoyeds because KONG products are able to withstand their powerful jaws.

If your Samoyed is anything like Sacha, he loves playing with balls. As I’ve written about before, his favorite toy of all time is just the plain old, simple tennis ball. In case you’re wondering, Penn Championship is his preferred brand of tennis balls.

Fortunately for Sacha, there are tennis courts on the premises at our place in LA, so he never has a shortage of tennis balls to scrounge around for. The problem is, the house gets awfully dirty with all of these used tennis balls all over the place, and they tend to slide right underneath the furniture. Which of course, causes Sacha to bark for them because, goodness knows, he has to have that ONE particular tennis ball that just rolled under the sofa. Which brings us to…

KONG Rubber Ball Extreme – Rating 5 out of 5!


This particular KONG Ball is 3″ long and, like all KONG products is extraordinarily durable. And it’s good to know that KONG products are made in the United States of America. Their toughness and well made construction make these balls ideal for medium and large breed dogs. I’m sure it’s possible for some pooch somewhere to destroy these things, but I haven’t met him yet. Certainly neither Zoya, Ramius, or Sacha have ever been able to do so.


KONG has a great reputation and we’ve had great experiences with all of their products we’ve had the pleasure to use over the years. But one thing in particular really struck me about this product is the ranking it receives on Amazon. As of this writing, this product has been reviewed an astonishing 2,567 times and it has an aggregate star ranking of 4.6/5.0. Wow!! That’s incredible but very well deserved.


Kong products are widely available and also typically very affordable. As of this writing, you can purchase this product new for as low as $6.84 on Amazon.


What more can I say? If you’re looking for a quality ball for your dog that’s properly constructed and made in the USA,  look no further than this one. And honestly, it’s so inexpensive, that even if for some reason you pooch doesn’t like it, you’re only out a few bucks. There’s not a whole lot to lose.

And if you’ve used KONG products in the past you know how good and well built they are. I would highly recommend any of their toys and products for your fur baby.

If you have this KONG Ball, or any other KONG product, please leave us a comment and tell me about your experience. And if you have any questions, please do the same. I’ll be sure to get back you.
