Kong LogoEKS&H is proud to serve the audit, tax compliance, transfer pricing and cost segregation needs of the KONG Company LLC, a leading U.S. manufacturer of pet toys and supplies with more than 50 million products sold worldwide. According to EKS&H Partner Brent Hendricks, “We are honored to be working with such a well-known brand, dedicated to providing pet owners and their pets effective and entertaining toys recognized for their quality and durability.”

KONG was founded in 1976 by Joe Markham. At that time, his dog, Fritz, suffered from chewing habits that were not only destructive but also unhealthy. Fritz’s teeth were rapidly wearing down, and his need for stimulation and play was not being met. One day, while working on a VW bus, Markham tossed a rubber suspension part to Fritz and was surprised to find that the dog was highly interested by its erratic bounce and toughness.

Expanding beyond its classic, well-recognized red-snowman-shaped KONG toy, the company now offers a wide range of grooming products, knots, treats, leashes, plush toys, and plastic and rubber toys for dogs, cats and other small pets.

KONG products can be found at a wide variety of pet supply outlets, including PetSmart, Petco and online. For more information, please visit
