It’s empty in here!
I spent a long time reading the super positive reviews and was really hopeful when I got this toy. When I received it I just saw it and thought: is that it? My large pointer-cross, a high-energy, playful puppy was intrigued with the toy for about 5 seconds, and then just left it alone. Absolutely not interested one single bit. Now I have this big piece of plastic that was actually quite expensive lying around in my garden for months, completely pointless :-(
When I first saw the ball I didn’t think my dog Tom would look at it. Tom loves small balls but this was a bit big as he is a terrier. He spends hours running and barking around after it. Hard material so will last ages
This yellow ball has been in daily use for 8 years. Sammy is a lab boxer cross. His jaws have made inroads and completely destroyed it but he won't part with it. He needs a new one for Christmas!
Fantastic toy. My Labrador has learnt how to dribble it back for hours(!) of fun and exercise.
When we first bought this, I must admit, I was a little disappointed... however, time changed that completely! Nearly two years later, this egg is still going! Our 37kg Old English Sheepdog adores this, he goes absolutely bonkers when playing with it, chasing it up and down the garden grunting wildly! Not much entertains him without human involvement - but this egg certainly does the trick!
My dog worked out pretty quickly that one end was smaller than the other. He scored holes in this area so he could get a grip in his mouth. It took a week for him to be able to strut triumphantly around the garden with it in his mouth, with a air of, 'look what I did'. He then continued to chew and score it so it could grip it in various ways. I had to take it off him in the end as it was so rough it actually started taking his skin off. Not suitable for dogs that have to be able to walk around with it in their mouths or ones that like to chew. Lasted about four months, pretty good for my dog.
My Great Dane loves this. This hollow plastic egg is roughly the size & shape of a rugby ball. It's exterior is slippery and difficult to grip. This is what makes it fun for dogs as it slips from their grasps, they'll end up chasing it. A dane can can easily fit it in his mouth as long as i it can maintain a slippery grip..
My lab is forever destroying his toys and I was struggling to find him something he wouldn't get through. This provides him hours of endless fun. He loves chasing this around trying to pick it up. I would highly recommend this product if you have an energetic dog who gets through their other toys quite easily.
This is a great toy for an energetic dog, like our 5 month old Springer spaniel cross lab. She absolutely loves it and chases it around the garden yelping with delight. We don't leave it out and only give it to her for about 10 to 15 minutes each time, so it is always an exciting 'new' toy when she has it. As with all toys it really shouldn't be left with your pet unattended. We purchased it about 2 weeks ago after seeing a friend with one and we are definitely not disappointed.
Great product! Our golden retriever absolutely loves it and has lots of fun chasing it. Although it is a very tough plastic is recommended, as it should be with any other toy, that you never leave your dog unattended for long periods of time playing with it!
Both my Labrador and spaniel love this toy, had it over 1 year now and still going strong! Takes a few weeks for them to get the hang if it, but once they do, they love it, my spaniel can get some speed up with it and it ends up hoovering on his nose! Best toy we have ever bought
My GSD x Malamut loves chasing his egg. He has destroyed every other "indestructible" toy going - intentionally - but just can't get his mouth around this one (so he can't bring it inside either)! It keepd him occupied and its hilarious watching him pounce on it to see it ping away. Worth every penny in the first 10 minutes xD
My German Shepherd inherited the running egg from my old dog. She has loved it for the past two years, however, she has put a huge hole in the top so she can carry it in her mouth. I'm frightened of her hurting her mouth so I've ordered her a new one It is because of the hole she has made that I will give it 4 stars, but would recommend it.
dog loves it. toy is a good size, so it can not destroy it.
This hard plastic toy is one I would not have expected my German Shepherd to have taken any interest in but he did. His football skills are incredibly good now because of it and he makes lots of funny noises of happiness when playing with it. Eventually after much determination he learnt to wedge it against the garden edges and then grap the top end of the egg with his teeth and trot up and down with pride before he would lose his grip again. It is an outside toy as he needs lots of room to play with it, definately worth getting if you have a dog who loves toys.
Our Mastiff bitch spends hours each day playing with the running egg in the garden. It is not an indoor toy! It has survived 6 months very rough treatment and is now looking very scuffed and has 2 puncture holes, but still is in one piece and retains its play value. She can pick it up and carry it around, but it is not easy. I have sent one to another Mastiff owner and it seems that they have the same amount of fun.
Good for dogs that are quite destructive or bolshy. I would say not as good for those a bit more sensitive about toys. The plastic is quite hard to roll around which is fine for some breeds or personalities of dog but mine for example enjoyed chasing it but did not enjoy it when the ball was rolled towards her as obviously the impact of when it reaches her put her off as it was so solid. Worth a try though to see what your dog makes of it :)
Was fed up of my dogs destroying balls, this product was great it keeps them occupied and no more sad pups when it deflates as they have had it over a year and its still going strong
Bought this for my 18 month old GSD. It drives him mad as he can never catch it but he loves it! It's survived being thrown kicked and bounced around our flagged garden and it's perfectly in tact. Best money I've ever spent on a dog toy.
This is the best toy I have ever bought, our Golden Retriever has hours and hours of fun with this, just make sure your ankles dont get in the way - it hurts
My dog is a chewer and he needs a lot of activity in a day. He gets through conventional chew toys in a matter of moments so this is the best toy for him. He absolutely loves it, will chase it around forever trying to get a grasp on it, tail wagging with joy the whole time!
our border collie gets hours of fun from this frustrating toy. it's brilliant
Our dog loves this toy and I am so glad he has it. He plays for ages with it though he has trashed the garden but it is worth it. He is a large strong dog with loads of energy. And the toy is still in one piece.
This is absolutely Murphy's favourite toy - He expertly dribbles it round the garden to whoever he wants to throw it(through gates and round corners) and never tires with it. After 5 years, he has managed to put a hole in it and we need another - but that was 5yrs of concentrated effort and he's a GSD.
My 2 year old border collie wasn't sure what to make of this when I first gave it to her but when she got up the courage to shove it she ran around bouncing it off walls for most of the rest of the day! Most of the time she now ignores the ball (I think this is because it has nothing food related in it!) But every now and again she goes mad with it for hours at a time! :D
My dog absolutely loves this toy. It is very strong plastic which he still hasn't chewed through. It has given him hours and hours of fun. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
After 10 months play it is finally giving up and cracking so I'm having to buy another. It's the best money we've spent on toys for our 19 month old labrador. He still loves it and wants to play with it every day, but bouncing it off walls in our enclosed yard area means something has to give and it wasn't the walls.
I bought this ball 3 1/2 years ago for my jack russell pup and she still has it and plays with it every day. It has lots of teeth gouges and scratches on it but is still whole. Everyone who sees her playing with it has bought one for their own dog. I am amused that I was the first person to review it and still own the original ball.
When the egg arrived wasn't sure if our dog would like it as its such hard plastic! But it proved to be a real hit, he loves it and spends ages chasing it round trying to get it. Being a staffie 'Seamus' destroys toys especially balls very easily and we are always looking for something stronger that will last, so far this is great and he hasn't been able to get his teeth through it yet! Will be buying another asap
my dog really enjoyed this ball she played with it for a very long time. Happy with it. The ball is strong and keeps my dog entertained.
Wow, i cant belive our staffy still has this toy after a week. He usually distroys everything within the hour and has cost me a fortune in replacement toys. He loves it and it has kept him entertained for long periods. Very good for excercise too. He is shattered after play. I'm going to buy another i'm so impressed.
brilliant keeps my collie pup amused for hours
What an absolutely fabulous toy. Endless fun for 10 year old Toby. Constant source of amusement for neighbours too. Unfortunately gets stuck under the car when it is out of the garage and comes in from play like the typical little boy - muddy legs. Would and have highly recommend it.
My Labrador Max loved this toy when it first arrived. The clever shape means that he couldn't pick it up so he was kept entertained while it rolled and bounced out of his grasp! Much to his satisfaction, he did eventually manage to pick it up after having made lots of tooth scrapes on the surface that gave it a bit more traction. Gave an older dog hours of fun. Like all toys, he eventually grew tired of it, but it is certainly one of the better toys we have had and requires minimal interaction from the humans. As Max has passed away, the toy has now been inherited by an 8 week old Jack Russell Shih Tzu cross pup called Poppy. Although the ball is as big as she is, she loves it! She wrestles and bounces against it with no problems, so although it is a big toy, it is certainly suitable for small dogs/pups! Which is good because she is already demonstrating that she is highly intelligent and a challenge to keep entertained. She seems to get bored of all toys very quickly so time will tell with this one! Being just under 2 years old the toy has lasted well. It is very scraped with tooth marks, but the damage is only aesthetic and hasn't damaged the integrity of the toy at all. It has yet to acquire a single hole! Love the bright yellow colour. Overall a clever and durable design suitable for all!
Bought this for my hyper-active ball-obssessed 9 month old GSD Topaz (also have her 9 month old brother Jasper, + a 4 year old GSD Max too) having seen a dog on GSD Rescue website playing with one. She completely ignored it for a month, and then Jasper knocked it one day, and BINGO! Now all my 2 boys need to do to get her wound up is touch HER toy, and she's off for hours - she absolutely adores it! I'm thinking about getting a second one just to see if the boys can wear her out!
When I saw this egg on your web site I didn't know how Ben would react to it. Well he just loved it as soon as I unpacked it. He chases it like a mad fool. Because of it's shape it rolls in all sorts of unpredictable directions causing Ben to run exciteably after it. Thanks Zooplus for finding such an stimulating toy.
Really good toy We have a staffy cross who likes unbreakable toys. So we have tried lots of tough plastic toys, like the boomer ball, which is great, but because he can scrape on it, it becomes rough and even with regular sanding will cut his nose. This seems to withstand it as the shape stops him being able to hold it and scrape it. Thoroughly recommended for bully breed dogs.
Bought this toy as we have a very lively Terrier cross. Keeps him entertained for ages, will play on his own or with someone occassionally flicking it to him. Drives him mad that he can't pick it up! Can't recommend it highly enough.
Have a rescue GSD x collie - super bright, very obsessive and somewhat damaged mentally! She's hard work to keep mentally and physically occupied but she does play with her toys - problem is they have to be indestructible and interesting. This running egg keeps hers huffling around for hours - she can't pick it up or destroy it and it is unpredictable so she finds it very annoying. Hence one tired dog - all good. Highly recommend.
best investement for my 2 yr old springer lab cross.. he loves it cant get enough of it .i do kick it and it can be bit hard but what the heck he having fun....best thing i bought here so far.
