Bella's favorite thing to do is play fetch with her footballs. This was great when she was smaller but now everytime I get her a new football she pops it in the first 5 minutes. Does anyone know of a football that will hold up? So far I have tried a couple diff. ones and none make it through the first 5 minutes?

find one that's made of plastic. she might flatten it
but she can continue to play with it. did you try any other
plastic or hard rubber toys for her to play with??

I don't know if they still make the, but NERF footballs used to work on my dogs. (I don't even care if I'm dating myself here.........LOL)
Or, instead of a football, try a JollyBall. They come in different sizes and I have never met a dog that didin't like them.
If you have a TSC near you, they normally sell them. Ours are in the equine area.

Look for Air Kong (not the same as the classic Kong people). They have a football for dogs. These are not GSD proof, but are as close as I can find.


This is the large one, and a random search with Google found it at about 10 bucks.

Jolly Balls and Air Kongs are both great suggestions. We have both and our dogs love them. In fact, the Jolly Ball was originally purchased for the horses and the dogs took it over when the horses showed no interest.

Thanks for all the info, I ordered her one of the Air Kong Footballs. Hopefully this will last, its not much fun playing with a flat football.

I hate to say, but both of my dogs ignore the Jolly Ball. It sits in the yard all alone. However, Dexter is mad about tennis balls (He doesn't eat them, just chases them.) and Luke loves his soccer balls. He flattens them, too.

Bella also loves Soccer Balls, they just dont last very long. We are going to try both of the aforementioned balls. A Tennis ball also sounds like a good idea.
