Chuckit! Ultra Rubber Ball Tough Dog Toy review

Features

  • Best all-rounder
  • Durable and long-lasting
  • Bounces and floats

The Chuckit! Ultra Rubber Ball Tough Dog Toy is 1 of the best ball dog toys on the market, providing plenty of durability with a tough rubber core designed to stand up to tough chewers. These balls bounce, float, and can even be thrown from a launcher, all to provide the ultimate game of fetch.

I found that these balls bounce better than most other balls I’ve tried with my dogs. I also liked that the bright colors make these balls easy to find if, like my spaniel, your dog gets distracted and forgets to fetch the ball. These balls are available in a range of sizes to suit all breeds, with this listing providing options for small and medium breeds.

Best of all for owners, these balls come at a very reasonable low price. You even get 2 in a pack so, in my opinion, they’re great value for money.

Pros

  • Most owners found these balls highly durable, saying they stood up to their dog's tough chewing
  • Owners liked that the ball was free of fuzz, as their dogs had managed to chew off and swallow pieces of the fuzzy exterior on tennis balls
  • Many said that these balls are a favorite in their home for both dog and owner
  • Owners felt that the balls were a reasonable price and that getting 2 in the pack made them great value

Cons

  • Some determined dogs were able to chew through these balls when left unsupervised

  • Size guide can be misleading, with some owners ending up with a ball too small for their dog
  • Some owners felt that these balls weren’t good value for money

KONG Squeakair Balls Packs Dog Toy review

Features

  • Best tennis ball
  • Durable yet soft

If your dog prefers a more traditional ‘tennis ball’, then the KONG Squeakair Balls Packs Dog Toy may be the 1 for you.

This ball even squeaks to provide plenty of stimulation for your dog and keep them engaged in games of fetch.

Features

  • Best for large and giant breeds
  • Sizes to specifically suit bigger breeds
  • Highly engaging and stimulating

The KONG Jumbler Ball Dog Toy provides plenty of fun and stimulation, with an interior tennis ball encased in a large, durable plastic ball with handles. The tennis ball rolls around inside during play which I found kept my dog interested in the game for longer. You can use this toy for games of fetch or utilize the 2 handles to play tug.

I found that the handles made it easy for my dog to pick up the toy and run around with it in her mouth, which she loved. This ball even squeaks to enhance playtime and excite your dog.
