My Jack Russell just loves these balls. He isn't a chewer so I cannot say anything about their durability in that area but the first one we got has been going for a couple of years and I have just got him a new one which he absolutely loves and can't leave it alone.
This toy arrived on Wednesday and our Dalmatian bitch loved it and carried it around, squeaking intermittently, for 3 days. Alas, by Saturday afternoon she had bitten through the rubber and we had to retrieve the broken squeaker before she could swallow it. The ball ended up in several pieces and is now no more! It's good value - £3.25 for 3 days' pleasure for our dog but not robust enough.
Brilliant product. My large labradoodle loves to play retrieving a ball and whilst we usually use tennis balls, I thought I would try this and I am so glad I did. I feel it is kinder to his mouth when he catches it mid-throw and it is so easy to clean. I shall be ordering more of these. I am sure my hound would also give them a 'hi-five'.
A fantastic toy, durable abd long lasting my german shepherds can play for hours with this toy.
When I first bought these balls I would have reccomended then to the hilt , because they just outlasted all others with the squeek and the rubber . But I dont know what you have changed just lately but they are being destroyed within the first day. the squeek comes out very easily and then the ball just cracks. Please go back to previous "recipe"
These are the ultimate dog toys! We discovered them nearly 2 years ago and never looked back (nor have our two bouncy labradoodles). The medium size fits well into a LARGE "chuckit" branded ball thrower, while the large jw ball is great for kicking and drop-kicking ( my husband secretly enjoys honing his football skills while playing with our dogs). Like already mentioned, these balls don't get chewed up and last for ages. The squeak can sometimes break, but can be readjusted and the dogs don't seem to mind anyway. these ball are very popular with all the other dogs on the park who are desperate to get to play with them. It must be something about the soft chewy texture... Also great water toy! The small ball is only for very small dogs - even our neighbours Westie is happy enough with a medium. Good price and service from VetUK also!
