Hi, I saw some toys advertised at petqwerks.com. They sound interesting. Does anyone have any experience with these in respect to safety and durability. My boxer loves toys that make sounds. They're not cheap and I was wondering if anyone can share their experiences. Thank you, Marisol
Yes, I got that toy for Crusader my Rott. I have to say it holds his interest like no ball he's had before. Sometimes I need to take it from him because he gets way too stimulated. So far, it's been a good product.
I got a ball for my rottie at PetSmart which you can record your own voice on it and put treats inside. Its called a "talk to me treat ball". Its a hard plastic and when it rolls around and hits something like the wall, it sounds off. He enjoys playing with it just trying to get the treats out.
The Big Doggie Babble Ball looks nice. The Little Doggie Babble Ball is interesting. I wouldn't trust any of these toys though, I have never heard of them. If you wnat a safe dog toy, go with the Tough Guys Plush Dog Toys. They are good for tough dogs. They also have a cute attititude that makes it fun to watch the dog play. Each character speaks its own phrase. Plush/Rope Tug Toys are nice. Dogs go nuts over these frog and monkey shaped toys. They are great for snuggling, and the legs and arms are great for chewing. They can only be bought at Petsmart. The Twin Pack Flavored Tennis Balls are great. They are the ultimate toy for tennis ball loving pooches! The dog gets the pleasure of play, and you get the pleasure of a dog with fresher breath. The Boingo Ball Medium is super! This toy really will surprise your dog.
I did buy him the tough guy doll and the monkey and the frog. He really enjoyed them but they were only good for one or two days. He looses interest if they stop making noises. He does have a monkey that's been around for a while. It doesn't make the orininal sounds anymore just sort of is like static but he doesn't care. For some reason he thinks plush toys are to be ripped apart. That's why I thought those Babble Balls would be good. Oh, his consistently most favorite toy is the Air ring. Sort of tennis ball material in a donut form. Only problem is that it takes my participation to throw it. He brings it to me when he's bored. Marisol
I can't buy my rottie anything that has stuffing in it. That's why he has the talking ball, a kong and this monster that he can't puncture. He rips apart stuffed animals in minutes and always rips the eyes and nose off first. We have tennis balls around and he does play with them but he has ripped those apart too. Check out the talking ball I bought at PetSmart, its hard plastic and he hasn't destroyed that yet - he's had it for 2 years.
my boxer loves the squeakers too, except that he destroys them so quick. I usually buy the ones that are very bright and colorful and he loves balls. I also bought him the small tire toy, he seems to love that.
I wouldn't trust those toys. The Plush Puzzle I-Qube is a great toy for dogs. The Nylabone Big Chew would be a hit for any dog. Also, the Chuckit flying squirrel is a good toy. I don't think the toys on petqwerks looked very safe.
My husband picked up both sizes of the Babble Balls for our Dalmation and Beagle for Christmas. They are their favorite toys hands down. I don't let them have them every day because they just go wild. I use them for when I'm too busy to play and they are asking for attention. It keeps them busy and they need a nap afterward. We also had the talking treat ball but they were only interested in it when it was dumping out snacks. Pepper, the dalmation started getting fat so we've discontinued treats completely.
Hi Everyone, My name is Jim and I am the manufacturer of the Babble Balls. I appreciate the nice comments and also the concerns of others regarding the balls. The Babble Balls were the first products from my new company Pet Qwerks. For that reason especially, my goal was to make a toy that really did appeal to pets and was as safe as possible. I made the toy to have it's own appeal rather than being dependent on spilling out treats. I made them to be as durable as possible. The balls have been tested extensively at dog parks where they instantly become the center of attention for both dogs and the owners. Thanks again! Jim
