I originally purchased this ball in 2021, and my dog absolutely loves it! He plays with it every day. It's his favorite toy! I decided to purchase him a new one this year since his old one was getting worn around the edges. The quality has changed significantly. My dog destroyed the new ball in less than 2 weeks after I purchased it. He's able to bite through the plastic. They changed the material and the thickness of the plastic. I'm so disappointed!
I bought a Jolly Ball about 15 years ago for my very energetic lab. The ball was pretty heavy and tired her out just carrying it. Ordered one recently for my doodle and the ball quality just didn’t match my old one. The plastic is so thin it doesn’t serve the purpose of tiring my pup.
My dog previously had this ball and it lasted many, many yrs. before she was able to chew on edges and get center ball out but she would still play with it. This new one was made with cheap plastic that she was able to bite through with 3 minutes of play. I want my money back! We will see if company responds I’ll let you know!
Hello I have bought too many of these Jolly balls. The 6 inch balls split at the seam soon after throwing them. Not just one ball either. I have three Jolly Balls right now all split with sharp edges that can cut a dogs tongue or lip. Also the large balls cause my dogs tongue to get red and irritated when carrying the ball, also tooth abrasion and wore my Pitt Bulls Canine teeth down . My dog is addicted to this ball. I have to limit the amount of time she plays with it
We've had many Jolly Balls over the years, and this is by far our GSD/Blue Heeler pups favorite. Unfortunately, the quality has gone down hill fast. Previously, this ball would last roughly a year, but the most recent purchase broke within a week, cracking at the seam and quickly breaking apart. We contacted Chewy and they sent a replacement, which only lasted a week as well. This is a real bummer, but we won't be purchasing anymore going forward.
The holes do eventually get chewed around. She carries it around almost every day. It holds up well in compared to other balls. The holes are 2 inches in diameter. She catches it using her top incisors which makes her look like Rudolf the red nose reindeer. I give the command “change” and she holds the ball with her paws, takes her top teeth out and grabs it with her bottom teeth and gives it to me. So cute how she does it. I just bought a new one in blue. The red one is about 5 months old. Disclaimer, I don’t let her sit and just chew on any toys when she lays down to chew. I trade them out for bones to chew.
Our dog loves to play with this toy and it appears to be pretty durable because he is more interested in pushing it than chewing on it. However, the edges of the holes quickly get sharp and he has started to hurt his mouth when playing with it. Because of this, I can only let him play with this toy infrequently and for very limited amounts of time. I wish they would coat the outer ball in durable rubber to that my dog could play with it more without hurting himself. In additionally, when he is kicking the ball around with his feet, they sometimes go into the holes. He hasn’t hurt himself yet by doing this, but I worry the it could lead to a serious injury if he did this when he was running fast and kicking the ball. Although our dog loves it, he will not be playing much with this toy.
This is our dog’s favorite toy and he goes berserk for it. We have to keep it in a separate closet otherwise this would be the only toy he ever plays with. He has been pretty rough on it in the 10 months we’ve had it and has managed to bite holes in the plastic but it held up better than I expected it to and we will be buying a replacement if the plastic around the holes become a safety risk.
Sometimes at night when my dog (60 lb pitbull) has a case of the zoomies, I bring this toy out. It is mentally stimulating as well as exciting. It does the trick of getting some energy out before bedtime and her tail wags nonstop while playing with it.
My daughters dog loves this ball toy! The best thing is she didn't destroy it! Highly recommend for dogs that destroy most other toys!
