It's tough to rate this only 3 stars - because the dog ABSOLUTELY loves it. But the hole in the middle is surely there by design - because without it the ball would last months instead of weeks. Make me a solid version it will get a solid 5 stars.
Max is a 50# "rescue mutt" - he's some sort of giant Beagle crossed with possibly Mastiff or possibly some sort of bull terrier. But he's got a HUGE head, and MASSIVELY powerful jaws. And he LOVES to chew. And chew. And chew. And this ball simply could not stand up to the rigors. And it's not like he would sit and chew for hours - we're talking about the 15 seconds of mashing he would do on the ball between rounds of fetch, and the occasional couple minutes here and there where he would "worry" on it a bit.
To further set the stage - Max pops tennis balls on the first bite. New ball, throw to dog, BANG, no more ball. We thought this was going to be a somewhat long-term answer, but I can't shell out $8 for a ball every other week. Well I could, but I'm also worried about the fact that the dog EATS the pieces.
So don't let the 3 stars convince you not to buy it (lol - like this is going to outweigh the 2,000 5-star reviews from people that gave these to their Schnauzer) rather, think of it an invitation to set your expectations accordingly if you have a powerful dog, and/or one that is an active chewer.
It's tons of fun to play with - as has been mentioned, it definitely has some momentum, so indoors it's going to be doing a lot of collateral damage, especially if you have kids doing the tossing. But holy cow does the dog absolutely love playtime with it. It's the first thing we do in the morning (after food, of course) and the last thing we do before bed.
We will be getting another - but the local "big box pet retailer" sells the 2-pack of these for only a dollar more than this single.
Update: 1/25/12 - Ball survived this long. Still pretty much intact, but she's gotten it to the point where she can get little pieces off. She is obsessed with this ball - it is her constant companion. I will keep a backup onhand as long as they make this ball.
-super durable, its like a mini rubber bowling ball
-it has this little hole in the center, you can put treats or some peanut butter. keeps them entertained for a while
-the only con for me is the color, but thats just a personal thing. Sometimes its hard to see, if it gets stuck under a sofa or something like that.
We decided to try both a red and a black Kong ball, not knowing if the red would survive our dogs who were so dedicated in destroying tennis balls. We've now had both Kong balls for almost two months, with no sign of destruction.
Dakota LOVES her Kong ball, maybe even more than the tennis ball. She tosses it around, chases it, and amuses herself to no end with it. Sierra likes her Kong ball, but she hasn't adopted it the way she did tennis balls. She carries it around, but she does not chew on it.
Both dogs will chase it if we throw it, but Sierra is cautious because it is a lot heavier than a tennis ball if it hits her leg while she's running. So we never throw them at or to the dogs, but somewhere else where they can chase, and you would NOT want to play catch. We all miss the tennis balls, but in the interest of a ball lasting for more than a day, and for the safety of our dogs, the Kong balls rule!
Both balls do have a hole running through the center, in answer to the many questions I've seen on Kong balls. As for our dogs, Dakota weighs 75 pounds and Sierra weighs 50 pounds. Both are high energy herding breeds.
