This is a great tuff ball! My boxers can not keep balls because they pop too easy. This ball has not popped!! My dogs love this ball, for tug of war and catch. They also love running around the yard with it in their mouth and shaking it! Best heavy duty ball Ive seen!
I've had a 8" jolly ball in the yard for a month. It's showing some wear and tear, but part of that is my fault. My pitbull, Beau's favorite game is for me to squish the ball and jam it under the deck. He'll sit patiently until the ball is puffed up again (love that feature) and then he'll spend a few minutes ferociously pulling it out. After a few fierce headshakes, he'll drop it at my feet and go sit by the deck again. This could be why one side of the handle will likely break within a week or two. Great toy!
My golden LOVES his Jolly Ball! He doesn't chew it up but enjoys carrying it around & tackling it on the ground. He also likes to play keepaway with it. It has worn a bit at the handle but it's probably 5 years old. He has tons of tennis balls in the yard which are the target of his chewing (ripping off the covers is a specialty). His Jolly Ball is a favorite.
