Next in our list of toys? The KONG Traxx! Erin took a bit of time to make a special treat, since it had been so hot, here in Denver.
You see, Erin had a little bit of blueberry puree leftover from some cupcakes she made. She also had some frozen bananas and some peanut butter too! The result was a tasty, sorbet-like mixture, good for peoples and dogs alike!
Erin poured some of it into the Traxx, and let it freeze, so it would be more challenging.
(Here it is, the day after being in the freezer.)
And here I am, waiting patiently to try it!
Blueberries and bananas are healthy treats for dogs. While I enjoyed this treat, I only ate about half of it. Admittedly, I have been a bit spoiled by some of the meaty, stinky treats Erin gets me.
Here is my review for the KONG Traxx:
Chew factor: 8/10 This is a fun toy to chew on, and you don’t have to worry about it falling apart. This sturdy rubber isn’t going anywhere!
Fun factor: 5/10 This toy can be rolled or thrown for fetch, and it can be chewed on. It isn’t as versatile as the Braidz or Wubba.
Squeakiness: 0/10 There is no squeaker. A big down-side in my opinion, but I can see that isn’t the purpose of this toy. This toy is for tough chewers, not prey-driven players.
Durability: 10/10 I don’t think there is any way for me to physically destroy this, unless I somehow get up on the counter and leave it to melt on the stove. Even then, I’m not sure it’d do the trick and I don’t think my humans would appreciate that experiment.
Coloring: 0/10 It’s black and shaped like a tire, so I suppose it’s true to form but my humans easily lose this under the bed and in corners. It’s like they just don’t know how to use their noses or something -god!
Overall, I enjoy the Traxx. It’s fun to take into a long hallway and see how far my humans can roll it and how fast I can bring it back to them. It isn’t my favorite Kong toy (no squeaker!!), but for some other lucky dog, this could be a a real winner!
