My dog loves this ball. His first ball came with him when I adopted him. His 2nd ball was brought into action when he was 18 months. I have a glow in the dark version but the green ones are easier to keep track of, so I just ordered 2 spares even though ball 2 is still in great shape. He boarded at the vet for a week. One of the techs commented on how much he loved the ball and how easy it was to get him to play. I think spares are necessary for his future happiness!
We bought one of these for our new Corgi back in Dec 2021, and she wants to play with it 24/7. But the manufacturer has cheapened the design to eliminate at least one of the holes (squawkers), and it doesn't make the same noise anymore. We bought this for my daughter, but I won't give her an inferior model. We used to recommend this item to everyone we knew with a dog ... not anymore. Terribly disappointed!
I have a 80# 3 yr old shepherd and he just loves this ball! He runs for hours making his ball giggle. Does not do well in real cold temps as it cracks easily but his last one has lasted over a month. Outdoor use recommended as it tends to be slammed around. I would give this 5 stars if it lasted longer. On my 3rd one since Thanksgiving.
I only had this ball since Dec and it has a big crack in it, We only roll this ball and I guess it not made for rolling outdoors. I would like to get in touch with the manufacturer of this product to see if it can be replaced, it only Jan and the ball was bought in Dec for ampuppy.
After trying several types of herding balls, I got this one for my six year old girl Bindi for her birthday. It was an instant hit. She actually started herding it and playing. She loves the oddball noises this toy makes. I'd upload a video of her playing with it if that were an option here! Highly recommend this toy.
We bought one when we brought our boxer home a year ago. He finally chewed a hole in it so I had to throw it away. I got him a new one and I had to check it was the same brand. Cheaper made, thinner, more noise from the noise maker hitting inside plastic than from the actual noisemaker now. Disappointed
When this arrived, it was not at all what I was expecting. It is hard, heavy and large. It's been a great toy for Piper, who likes to play soccer with it, or drop it down a flight of stairs. Highly amusing for all!
Sadly my ball loving pup was terrified of this toy. I had to get it out of sight. We saw her BFF that evening, offered her the ball to take home. Within 15 minutes, received a video of her BFF rolling ball around, enjoying herself, with her brother watching her. You never know!
Maybe this works for some pups, but not all. My golden is absolutely terrified of it. I was surprised that the sound isn’t constant when it moves. It just randomly makes a sound here and there. This could be a good thing if your pup plays with it inside so it wouldn’t completely drive you crazy. At least I got some super sweet snuggles out of comforting him, but I’ll definitely have to return it
This ball is way too big and too loud for small dogs. I have 2 mini-doxies. They and I are somewhat terrified of it; the sounds it makes sound like a bird or rabbit in distress. It's also way too big for dogs in the mini to small range. My dogs bark and bark or cry/whine at it and don't even want to touch it. I would like to return it and get a refund/credit on my order please.
