JW Pet Crackle Heads Ball Dog Toy
Gotta love the crackle!
My Blue Heeler LOVES the crackle. She love empty water bottles, juice bottles, etc. She also has tremendous ball drive. When I saw this product I thought, Wow, 2 toys in one!
I barely got the packaging off of the ball before she went to town with it. She loved it. You will notice that I said she LOVED it and not LOVES it. That's right... Her favorite crackle ball no longer crackles! The inside piece has been completely smashed. When I look at it I think of ABC (Already Been Chewed) gum. Ha ha
When I am bored I may try to jimmy it back in shape to restore the crackle, but it looks pretty smashed!
This toy was such a hit with her that I have no problem buying another!
She gives is 5 stars, me..only 4 'cause it lost it's crackle!

Love This Crackle Toy!!
My dogs love the sound of a crackling water bottle but with how thin they have made them they tend to tear them apart so quickly. I love how with this it is not thin and flimsy but very tough and has rubber all around it so that it can even bounce! This is a good size also and my Pomeranian/Dachshund mix even carries it around in her mouth and it is light so that it does not hurt her jaw like some of her other balls.

don't waste your money
I gave this to my dog and in less than an hour the toy was ruined. I fully expected the crackle ball part to be punctured, and that did happen. What was really disappointing to me was that the rubber "cage" surrounding the plastic ball was so flimsy. My dog nearly had the rubber cage opened, and I had to take the whole thing away for fear he would get the punctured plastic out and choke. For the record, I had the large size, appropriate to my dog.
I am glad I was there supervising. This toy could be dangerous to an unattended dog.

Definitely not for a lab/basset mix
My dog had this is tiny pieces in a very short amount of time. He loved it. I didn't love it because he was able to rip it into small pieces rather quickly. The dimensions are misleading. The inches given are circumference, not diameter. I would not give this product to a strong chewer.

Pup LOVED this... the inside crackle ball collapses down - assume it is meant to do this so gets less crackley but still loves it.

Our dogs (Patterdale Terriers) are extremely destructive when it comes to toys... I got them these for Christmas and they are still in one piece! They love the crinkling sound of the plastic - so while it does get a little irritating to us - it keeps them engaged. The rubber is soft yet durable enough that our puppy chewed on his a lot when he was teething and continues to work on it now. It makes them drool like crazy, but whatever. ;)

My puppy loves this! Sounds just like a water bottle when she chews it! :)

dog loves it, destroyed quickly
My puppy adored this ball, but after only 10 minutes with her jaws the middle part that crackles was smashed and no longer makes a crackle sound. She really liked it (still does) so I gave it four stars, just wish it crackled for longer.
