R-a-m-b-o I Bought the Herm-sprenger(H.S)Ball on a string and i find it to be the best ball iv'e ever used, and i promise that you'll think the same when you get it.
I tried the Gappy,fordogtrainers brands and you can't even compare them to the H.S brand because the H.S brand is A SOLID RUBBER and the other brands are just squishy rubber.
you can't squish that ball with you're hands and my own dog finds it better to tug with.
they even sell it in different smells.
I promise you won't regret it.

Yes, thanks, they do, but the rope is not "everlasting" so we made it ourselves... GSD-proof!

erfunhouse 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

Vinnie 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.

Abby142 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.
