Those two seem to be lasting well and they are both treat dispensers so it give them something to do besides just chew up the ball.
We've had that first one for well over a year now, and Thor is just now starting to split it apart from chomping on it like a stress ball. I rotate through his ball collection so he doesn't get bored with any particular one, but I'll probably end up getting another one of the same.

jafo220 The best ball I ever seen as far as durability was called "Buddy Ball". It was a little bigger than a baseball, green and pliable but tough as nails. I had one for Rocky and that ball lasted for years and was his favorite. I don't think they make them anymore. I guess because they lasted so long, don't know. I've looked high and low for one for Cruz but come up empty handed. Wish I could find another.

Was looking at these today....do they float? They felt really heavy! We use the chuckit because they float at the lake and beach....if these float they would be a great addition. :-)

mcdanfam The only tennis size ball we use is the chuck it....here us a list of others we use to break it up. Attachment 166849
If you are looking for any size ball....they have a few favs...!
Smaller ball is the chuckit kick and toss....
Large orange one is the varsity ball....hard plastic miles loves to growl and bark at this ball....it plays on their herding instinct.

This is the jolly ball large with handle...we have a red and blue one...
Attachment 166873
The blue one is found online only at oneworldfutbol.com
Our dogs LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE soccer but kill a soccer ball the first time the scoop it up so we looked and found this soccer style ball, kicks, bounces just like soccer ball just last about 6 moths longer :-)) they love it! They sound like race horses when chasing this ball, they put everything they have into winning the race to this ball... They can't think or function when this ball comes out! We have been working hard trying to ignore, avoid and drop this ball when told to. They try to drink with the ball in their mouth. Miles will put the ball down, lay top of the ball while he is drinking....and hold it in his mouth when going potty.

I have wondered how the balls survive when all the other toys die so quickly. The way they walk around just chewing away....:-) and they never just catch them or retrieve them....they have to chew them a few times before making their way back to me...

FrankieC Riley would run through a brick wall to get his Jolly Pet Teaser Ball. Held up pretty well too.

McCoy You can buy tennis balls in bulk off ebay for a fraction of the price. Tennis clubs sell boxes of used balls ranging from 20 count to 150 count all the time. When they come in dump them in the washing machine and they're good to go.
