I thought the ball would be light blue like it was in the picture, but it was black. Wish it had been the right color. Doesn’t bounce very well either. It is very durable, though.
I bought this for a cavapoo puppy. It is made instead for a large lab instead.
My dog ignores this toy. Even with treats in it. He sniffs it, tries to get the food, then leaves. I bought the giant size. You need giant treats.
Sturdy toy for my staffordshire.
Maybe 5 minutes into play and my dog has already taken a large chunk off of the toy. Very disappointed. Wasted my money.
My pittie mix LOVED this toy from the minute it came out of "the peanut butter box," but she's making short work of it. She loves chewing/gnawing on it, and once she gets a piece off, she sets it aside for me to throw away. I might buy another one, but not anytime soon. It's a little too expensive to throw away on a regular basis.
I can see this being very durable. But it was not soft enough to replace the old ball I got for her that had holes and we played tug and fetch with. The old ball was more like the play young rubber balls rubber but like 4-5ply. When you squish it with your hands it gives way easily. This one does not. My German did not like it. It was uncomfortable in her jaws… she like the bit of the other one. She did not destroy her last one. The sun cracked it up after years outside so I’m trying to find a new one she likes.
My goal is to find a ball that is somewhere in weight between the regular Hol-ee Roller and this Xtreme. The regular ball is too light to produce a good loft when kicking, and this ball is a little too hard and heavy and hurts my toes when I kick it. Also, when it is really cold outside this X gets harder and I'm afraid one of these days it's going to break my dog's teeth when he catches the ball in the air. Seriously.
I bought the blue extreme ball for my 70 lb Amstaff Mix, and their regular red ball (not part of this review) for my 25 lb Welsh Corgi. The dimensions listed for the Blue Extreme ball are 6x6x7.5." The medium sized regular ball in red is 4.5" in diameter. As you can see in the photos, no part of the blue extreme ball measures even close to 7.5", or even the lesser 6". Within one minute, I had to take the extreme ball away from my Amstaff bc she tore into it. My Amstaff is a large dog. This ball says it's for large dogs, yet it is pretty much as the size appropriate for medium breeds such as my 25 lb corgi. This makes zero sense, and is hazardous. BUYER BEWARE. 9
I’m writing this review two years later to let everyone know that this toy has held up and is seriously the only toy that keeps my girl occupied for long periods of time. Just find a good treat that fits inside it and toss it to your pooch and they’ll be busy! The dog treats we’ve found to work well inside it: dream bones and the Dingo raw hide balls. Milo’s Kitchen also has some snacks that work well. Good Luck!
