Separation anxiety

Separation anxiety typically occurs in the first 20 minutes after you leave a dog alone. A simple solution is to help the dog develop a positive association between being left alone and good things, like a treat-stuffed KONG. Stuffing a KONG toy with a mix of wet and dry ingredients creates a challenge that typically lasts 20 minutes, engaging dogs during the time when anxiety is at its peak. A KONG can even be frozen so that getting all the food out takes even more time.

Chewing

For adult dogs, chewing is nature’s way of keeping jaws strong and teeth clean. Chewing also combats boredom and can relieve anxiety or frustration. Without an acceptable outlet for the natural instinct to chew, many dogs will turn to destructive chewing in the home. Success comes when teaching dogs acceptable chewing behaviors from the start. KONG toys come in a variety of formulas from puppy to adult to senior, so they can grow with your dog. For all dogs—regardless of chewing temperament—supervise play until you’re confident the dog won’t destroy the toy. Be sure to replace any toy with cuts, tears or rips.

Barking and Digging

Dogs bark to communicate and dig when bored or afraid. Creating good behaviors start with productive play, which allows dogs to expend excess energy. Every time you throw a KONG toy, the unpredictable bounce ensures no two games are ever the same, keeping the dog engaged and excited for more. A stuffed KONG is also helpful for a dog left outside to play. Directing their energy toward something positive, like working for the food inside the toy, diminishes bad behaviors.

Crate training

Crate training is an effective way to house train a puppy or new dog. In this critical time, you can help relax your dog with a treat-stuffed KONG to create a positive association with the crate. Start a dog’s crate training by stuffing a KONG toy with a favorite treat. Let the dog see and smell the stuffed toy, then place the KONG in the back of the crate leaving the door open. As the dog chews on the KONG inside the crate, they begin to feel more comfortable and create a positive association with the crate. Repeat this until their dog is happy to settle in the crate on their own.

Power chewers need durable toys.
Dogs Need to Play.

For dogs, physical and mental development, emotions and behavior are all influenced by healthy pay. Play helps dogs expend excess energy, which is important for appropriate behavior. KONG dog toys encourage play, satisfying dogs’ instinctual needs and strengthening the bond between dog and owner.

There are three basic chewing styles when it comes to dogs and their toys.
  • Gentle Chewers – These dogs are easy on toys and prefer plush or fabric toys. They usually like to lick or suck on their toys, but rarely ever destroy their toys.
  • Average Chewers –These dogs love to play with all kinds of toys and will often carry toys around with them. They can be destructive with plush and fabric toys but rarely are destructive with rubber toys.
  • Power Chewers – These dogs are usually strong, determined chewers who require more discretion when it comes to selecting toys. Choose durable, interactive play toys along with hard rubber toys. Sizing up is also helpful when picking toys for Power Chewers.

Anatomy of a D’Addario Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar String

Three components of a D’Addario guitar string work together to create your desired tone: Hex-core, outer wrap wire, and ball-end. It all starts with the core. D’Addario pioneered the use of the Hex Core, and as the name suggests, it is a six-sided high carbon steel core-wire. Each side “bites” into the wire used for the outer winding, creating a tight and consistent bond that keeps the string in tune from end to end. The final component is a D’Addario exclusive: color-coded ball-ends that secure the string in place at the guitar’s bridge, allowing for easy string identification and a major reduction in wasteful packaging.

Phosphor Bronze

92% copper and 8% tin with phosphorous, introduced to string making by D’Addario in 1974 as the first “extended life” strings. Phosphor Bronze is synonymous with warm, bright, and well balanced acoustic tone.

Round Wound

The most popular and universal construction, Round Wound strings deliver the traditional textured feel most players are familiar and comfortable with.

The Player’s Choice

Ideal for the widest variety of guitars and musical styles, D’Addario acoustic strings are the choice of countless professionals around the world including Dave Matthews, Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Ryan Adams, and many more!
