Kong was the brain child of Joe Markman, who single handedly started Kong in the year 1976. Kong came into existence more as a need of one man and his pet than a pre-planned product. Joe had been troubled for some time because of his German shepherd. He had started chewing rocks and it was becoming really bad for his teeth. He wanted to create the perfect pet toy that would bear the incessant chewing and will satisfy the chewing urge of the pet as well.
This experiment took almost six years before it reaped any results; it was at the end that he was successful in making the perfect dog toy that was made with natural rubber. It was almost the perfect chew toy for your dog. In the subsequent years Kong Toys gained and have still been gaining unprecedented popularity across the world and today even veterinarians have started recommending them to cater to the constant chewing.
