Well, I was really excited to get it. I have bought a green nerf ball before and the squeaker lasted forever. I just got the ball today and my dog already disheveled the squeaker which is pretty lame. Going to try going back to the other nerf ball I tried. This one was just not for my German shepherd.
Great for a chew happy 7 month old lab. She hasn't punctured it or bit a hole in it.
I thought a nerf ball would be soft. It's not and it's too hard for my senior dogs to squeak.
I bought 2 of these for our now 11 month old lab, she's a hard chewer. This ball is soft rubber, the squeaker wasn't deep enough inside the ball for long teeth. I gave this item a 3 star review because the 1st ball she broke within an hour, the 2nd one is still squeaking and you can see it's lower inside, so they're made differently, so far so good.
Our dogs go crazy for this ball. It’s their favorite outdoor toy that they could run after for hours. That being said, yes the squeaker does come off after a while. We try to avoid allowing the dogs to chew on it aggressively to avoid ruining the squeaker connection. I didn’t take away any stars because I believe the value/time play/enjoyment to wear/damage ratio to be worth 5 stars. We buy these in bulk & always look for sales on them.
The ball is very durable. It’s made of a tough outer layer and a softer inner layer The squeaker didn’t last more than 15 minutes. My dog lost interest after she broke the squeaker, she prefers a more ‘chewable’ ball.
In the amount of time it took my 40lb dog to figure out how to squeak the ball, she split it and the inner ball was trash. Durability rating: 0 Do not recommend.
My 11 year old Husky wrecked the squeaker during the first day of fetch and then e was bored with the ball a few days later.
Best toy for dogs who like to chew fetch squeak and crinkle all in one!! Very durable and perfect size for medium to large dogs!
My dog really liked this ball but it hasn't been very durable. The squeaker was exposed i.e it wasn't protected by the red outer covering. The squeaker fell out during our first play session. I found it before the dog could try to eat it. She still liked the ball but she has been able to tear the black fuzz off the inside ball. The inside ball is like a tennis ball with black fuzz. I've been cutting off the fuzz when it comes off the ball. I have only allowed the dog to play with this toy outside under supervision.
