The only ball that my German Shepherd loves. We have to cut the handle off since our Labrador retreiver tries to eat it. Once it is off they both love playing with the balls. I have 4inch and 6 inch balls. The dogs chase and retreive them. My daughter has a giant Weimeraner and he loves the balls too. I've tried other ones and they just don't like any other ball.
Ordered this for our large 5-month-old puppy who destroys everything quickly. I figured since they make toys for horses that this would be a little tougher and would last longer than some of the other toys we have purchased for her. Unfortunately, our pup had the handle chewed off in less than 30 minutes, then promptly lost interest. I do not recommend this toy for serious chewers.
I bought this for our 8 month old Miniature Australian Shephard as he loves playing catch and throwing balls. He loves this ball; however within 1/2 an hour he had a whole chewed in the handle and a piece of rubber chewed off. Luckily we were monitoring him and took the ball from him before he could swallow the rubber piece.
My dogs absolutely LOVE this, they are aggressive chewers, but I hung it up so that they couldn't chew the handle...lol lol and it gives them so much fun. So much so that I just ordered another one.
Literally just received the JollyBall and gave it to my 7 month old GSD to play with. Literally chewed the handle putting a hole in it within 5 mins or less…definitely do not recommend if you have a chewer.
We bought these last winter when the snow got to deep for us to find her Kong Balls and she fell in love with them (she was just a few months old then)! We bought 2 to keep her running to get enough exercise, and they work great! She is now a much bigger girl and still loves to chase them. Even though she can occasionally grab the whole ball in her mouth, she usually catches them by the handle. They are far from worn out after twice a day exercise time for nearly 11 months!
Fern is my second strongest chewer. This ball was out of the package 15 minutes and she chewed a hole in the handle. We have had other Jolly products that are still at out home after several years. Just a warning if you have a serious chewer!
I bought this toy for my dogs who love it so much I needed to have one at cabin and one home.
One 6 month old pup had this destroyed in less than five minutes. I wouldnt buy this for a gold fish.
However, our 13 pound, 9 month old pup, had the handle chewed up within 30 minutes. But he carries it everywhere. We just keep trimming the debris away.
