The gappay ones are solid. But, they're better....my dog tugs so hard that his teeth pierce the elitek9 ones and the ball gets stuck in his mouth, lol.

Haven't had that issue with the gappay ones.

I love those elite K9 ones... they are my favourite, but they do not last and are pretty frail.

I use the dog sport gear balls now.

I second the suggestion for the Chuck-It on the rope. I use it as a reward to break up training sessions. I can easily fold the rope and stick it in my pocket when I don't need it and it has help up remarkably well. I still use the first one I bought over a year ago, but they are relatively cheap so I won't feel bad if I needed to buy one or two ever year.

Gappay or Bende are my top picks for lasting/tough dog balls. I've found the solid rubber ones last much longer with my boys than any of the hollow type. Elite K9 & Chuckits are useless within days with my boys.

Watch the fire hose tugs though....I got a few from the guys that run to my ER and Sabo managed to pull the rubber through and was breaking it apart...I had to fight with it to cut the rubber lower than the canvas

The only toy that worked for us and is still "usable" after several months of training is this one:

We put a string through it so we can tug and it works really well. It's the only ball that lasted...
