The frozen ones are the worst! They are like sandpaper when they get dirty too. Karlo constantly punched the other dogs with it too..I'm sure they got frustrated with him!

We have a Jolly Egg and an Indestructiball (which is exactly like the Jolly Egg, only round and a bit smaller). They are both hard plastic. Juno loves them both and likes to "herd" them around our front garden or at the local football pitch.

Juno gets kinda obsessive with them, and seems to get frustrated when they don't go where she wants it to and does her high pitched yapping at it. lol

The problem I have with these toys is that they get scuffed and scratched up on the outside over time, which in turn scratches Junos nose and mouth when she pushes it high speed. I've had to take them away from her because she cuts herself to the point of bleeding and gives herself welts on her nose. I've tried sanding them down, but it hasn't helped. Anyone else have that problem?

I had that problem too - my last dog was *obsessed* with his "Push & Play" Jollyball. He'd probably have torn his nose right off if I hadn't taken the ball away from him, and I'm not kidding. My puppy doesn't like the ball because he hasn't learned to push it around so his nose is fine, lol.

They both liked the "Teaser Ball" but it got a crack in the seam so I threw it out. It did last for several years though. I don't think the ball frustrated them to the point that I'd worry about it, because when they actually were frustrated to that point, the whole neighborhood heard about it, lol. I did have to take it away from them because they chewed the holes, and I worried about them cracking/breaking a tooth on it.

My dog makes this funny grunting and whinning noise that does sound like she's very frustrated with the little ball inside. I used to tease her with the little ball inside by popping it against one of the holes or shaking the whole thing.

She has free access to it because she doesn't play with any toy too long. She treats herself like a princess so is very careful about not getting hurt.

Uschi is the same way with her Jolly Egg. I have to always monitor her time with it.

Teaserball - YouTube
I gave the teaser ball to Lakota in a second she was chewing to get the ball out. I took it away and wrote to the company about how dissatisfied I was they sent me the soft "Bounce n Play" ball OMG it was the best ball I ever got her. So happy with it after the first one gave into the thousands of teeth marks I got a 2nd one. My oldest dog is obsessed with the hard jolly ball and the teeth marks cause sharp edges when she pushes with her nose she gets scratches and blood stains on her muzzle.

Can you post a photo of the bounce n play?
I have two of the chuckit kick/fetch balls coming tomorrow, but I read that they are easily destroyed. And they aren't cheap!

I can't vouch for the company but this is a picture BOUNCE-N-PLAY BALL PINK/BBLGUM 8 INCH | Buy Jolly Pets Online they usually come in pink or blue (blue is blueberry).
Even though its soft plastic, it has held up to Lakota's INTENSE chewing power!

Ah, I have the blueberry one. When it freezes it gets hard and Karlo loves bashing it into the other dogs...so it's not on the rotation

OMG "Uschi" - I love it. One of the many names we pondered over for our dogs. Do you pronounce it the same way we do over here?
