Ozzy gets Chuckit balls and sometimes the Kong balls. He DEFINITELY prefers the Chuckit balls, though. He doesn't like any other type of balls, really. Picky little brat....
He's not allowed to have them unless we're actively playing with them, though. He won't chew on it, but he'll sit at my feet, whine, stare at it, dig at it, throw it at me, and do anything he can to make me throw it until I go insane unless I put it away.

|hunterisgreat||Jäger has the same issue with canines.. Tennis balls are now banned.|

I really wish I knew about this. Togo has about 7 months of 2hrs daily chuckit with mostly tennis balls now.
Going to post to push this thread up so more peeps are aware of it.
How can something like this not be common knowledge among dog owners?

|katdog5911||My old boy Ruben is obsessed with tennis balls. When he was younger he would play fetch for hours. Now he does a couple of runs, lays down, and then does a couple more. But his teeth are definitely affected. He used to sit and chew balls like gum. He still does that but he is old and if that is his pleasure, well, I am not going to stop him. I never knew that tennis balls were bad. Stella, my 18 month GSD loves to play with her jollyball. She doesn't chew it though...just likes to chase it and then carry it around by the handle. She also seems to like sticks on occasion. But tennis balls are just not her thing.|

|Angelina03||Yea. I agree. Those of use with poor teeth genes just have to take better care. I'm sure it's the same with other animals, too.|

|Liesje||Yep definitely genetic! I've had fluoride my entire life and probably have 12 cavities, 2 crowns.|

She had to have two fillings. Her dad has had about 3 total in his life, my teeth are full of them. It is genetic, not because of the lack of brush/flossing. We don't have fluoride in our water, and that may play into it, but I still think it is the genetics we are dealt.

|msvette2u||Yeah, Pepper used to just carry them around, and chase/fetch them. She didn't chew them up - her babies? No way!|

|Kyleigh||Thanks! I guess it's just like human teeth! I've never had a cavity or a filling, but others have !!!|
