I got two of these balls. Big mistake! My older dog loves them so much she barks incessantly because, although she has her own, she wants the other ball that I got for the younger one. She is actually upset she can’t have both! They have had these balls for more than 24 hours so far, and they are still fully intact. They are both super chewers, so this is saying a lot!
Just received this today. I ordered it although I knew it was a little bit smaller than were used to playing with. But our young lab loves “crunchy” toys. It’s been a little over two hours now. And he has not really left it alone for long. Crunching it, dropping it, picking it up to bring to us to throw — seems very well entertained with it. My only concern is that it’s hollow in the middle with what seems to be plastic inside that makes the crinkle noise. Louie just a year old this month and still in a huge, chewing phase so we have to watch him closely with the ball. My concern would be that he would get whatever’s in the middle and eat it. But so far so good.
I bought this for my squeaker-ball obsessed dog as something different not knowing how he'd like it without a squeaker - he love the crunching sound. It satisfies his need to hear it and is a nice break from the squeaks! I haven't tried it in the ball launcher yet since it's still a house ball for now!
My lab loves all chuckit balls. We have probably about 15 (she’s a hoarder and I keep enabling her) so I was excited to get her something new and unlike the other balls she has. She really likes chomping on this ball and bouncing it around but she still gravitates toward her large chuckit balls more. If this ball were larger it would probably be her favorite because she likes the squishier rubber. The crinkle is also VERY subtle and not annoying.
This ball just got delivered and it's super underwhelming for $8. It's basically an empty ball with water bottle plastic stuffed inside. I think I read a review that said the same thing but I didn't get it until I got the ball. The good news is you can make the same thing at home. Just take a chuck-it ball that your dog has ripped the squeaker out of and roll up water bottle plastic and stuff it in.
Luna is a picky lil stingy ball hog. When she finds the right one NO ONE gets a turn. This is the one!!!!
This "crunch" ball is an absolute joke. Inside the ball is nothing but nasty plastic pieces. The pieces are dirty and are a cheap way to make the ball "crunch." These could easily cause a dog to choke. Really people! Very disappointed in product!
I have a 3 year old lab and she absolutely LOVES the chuck it balls; her favorite is the strato ball. Recently I purchased the super crunch ball thinking it was something different and I’m extremely disappointed. I can get over the fact that this is just the strato ball stuffed with plastic, but I cannot get over how DISGUSTING this ball is. She dropped her ball for me to throw it and there was a foul smell. I threw the ball, the smell went away…. She dropped it at my feet again, the smell returned. Turns out the “crunch” part of the ball was holding in dirt, slobber and who knows what else! I pulled all of the “crunch” out; I usually just clean them with soap and water, but there was no going back from this, it went straight in the trash. We’ve had it less than a week, I’m just glad I caught it before she got sick.
First let me say I LOVE Chuckit! products and have just about every ball they have on the market. When this ball came out, of course we just had to have it. I have a 2 year old husky that loves getting new toys but gets bored very quickly. Not the case with any Chuckit! product and this ball did not fail us either. This ball has a super erratic bounce which makes it as much fun for the viewer and the player. The "crunch" has lasted intense play and "chewing" and the durability is awesome. We love it!!! Only problem is trying to buy more (they sell out so fast) and yes the new tug and pull one is a must have to as soon as it is back in stock.
Only thing. Wish this came in the XL size for dogs. My German Shepherd loves the crunch sound.
