Anyone know how sturdy they are? Im trying to find something indestructable for the boys to play with. I have one of those soccer balls - its in a little harness with rope tugs on 2 sides. It lasted about a month, but the ball is flat now. Its still retaining a solid shape and rolls almost the same, so they are still having supervised play sessions with it.
Toys that they can both play with are best. Thats why I liked the soccer ball. They will each grab a rope and carry it around the yard. Its really funny to watch them fetch it.

Wiggly Giggly toys don't last long at my house. Kong balls last the longest, and the Planet Dog balls are ranked up there too. Anything with rope tugs lasts my dogs about 20 minutes though, so your dogs may be far less destructive than mine if you've maintained one for a month!

Sounds very familiar. Have you bought one of
those puff balls with string everywhere.
Clovis was "in love" instantly. Though
she starting pulling out 100's of pieces
just as quickly.
And kongs don't even last at my house,
though certainly much longer then any
other toy.

They arent super-destructive with ropes, but a ball lasts no time at all. Those are their favorite though; they quickly lose interest fetching a rope tug, but will play ball forever. Rayden has a large tennis ball (about 4 inches across). He's learned that if he takes it to the top of the yard and drops it, it will roll away. He entertains himself for an hour or more and sometimes both dogs chase it. Then the loser chases the other around the house and then up the hillt o start it all over again.

Ah. See, one of those large tennis balls lasted Cala less than a half hour. First she punctured it so she could grip it, thus turning it into a limp, wobbly thing, then she ripped the cover off, turning it into a bald, grey, limp, wobbly thing, then she started to chunk it up into pieces.

The Planet Dog balls are supposedly indestructible. Cala's lasted 6 months, which is a good long time, but she finally got it to give way then shredded it into teeny tiny little pieces.

I will look for hte Planet Dog balls. The boys dont TRY to destroy balls. But once one gets a hole, forget it. No more regular tennis balls either. Rayden almost swallowed one a couple weeks ago. Now, if only I could find all the ones hidden around the yard and in the weeds. Every time I think Ive gotten them, he finds another one.

How big are your dogs? I have a "Best Ball" that we got for my darling Maxwell (74 lb lab/dalmatian) about 3 years ago. It's the large red one (10") in this link:

These are made of a hard plastic which has been claimed to be indestructible. If fact, the place I bought it from claimed zoos were ordering it for their lions! But, our "Big Red Ball" sits alone and unwanted in a corner. Max won't play with it, in fact I think he's afraid of it.
I'm willing to get it to you for the price of shipping.

I sent you an email.. Ive seen those, but wasnt sure how interested the dogs would be. But for shipping Ill give it a try! hhehe

They are 65 and 68 lbs. Im sure that they will at least chase it. If not, I will put it in the straps from the soccer ball they destroyed!

The secret to the wiggly giggly is to get one large enough that the dog cannot put her mouth around it. If they can only scoot it around soccer style it might last. Or that's the theory, anyway.
Destructo-Bop figured out after a month or two that two of the holes were close enough together to just barely snag a tooth in each and carry it that way - it lasted a while longer, but once she got a tooth-hold, it was just a matter of time...
Fun while it lasted though. And even watching her roll it around juust so to find the exact position it had to be in to pick it up by. And when she did pick it up and would prance around shaking her head - it was almost as if she had gotten a voice!
