My dog, Miss Daisy, loves her Jive Ball. She has been fussy about her balls. She only seemed to like those hard rubber "super" balls that bounce so well. Unfortunately these balls crumble when chewed & were not very safe. She did not seem to swallow the chunks, but once these balls were breached into the garbage they went. We tried all sort of balls from the pet stores, but she did not like them. She did not like the way they bounced. She did not like the way they smelled. She had no interest in playing with other balls until we found the Jive Ball. This ball is hard & bounces well like the hard rubber balls, & she can gnaw on it to her hearts content. So far, this ball has not crumbled or disintergrated with her gnawing; she has been unable to make a dent in it, & it must smell right to her as she will sniff out the location of her JIve Ball & bring it out to play.
An added plus is that the ball floats. So she can retireve it on land or in the pool. This is the 1st pomeranian that I have owned that leaps into the water & swims. She snatches her floating Jive Ball, races to the step to climb out & brings you the ball to go again. She loves her Jive Ball & I love that she cannot destroy it! And, I love that it floats. The summers in Arizona are oven hot. For several months out of the year there is no better activity than swimming for exercising an active dog. Miss Daisy goes crazy when she sees the beach towels come out. She runs & find her Jive Ball & is ready to play fetch.
