Jive Dog Ball
West Paw’s most durable dog ball yet. Jive® is the only ball dogs need—bright, bouncy, and buoyant. Combat slobber by flinging it with a standard ball-thrower, then toss it in the dishwasher. Just don’t toss it out—it’s recyclable.
Like all of our Zogoflex® dog toys, Jive® is Made in the USA, Certified Safe and Guaranteed to Last.
Seeing is believing - these are tough dog toys!
When everyone claims to make ultra-tough dog toys, it is hard to know if a dog toy is really as tough as people advertise. Well, watch for yourself and see why doggie daycares choose to use Zogoflex dog toys in their play rooms.
We dare dogs to destroy Zogoflex. (And if they do, we replace it—free.)
Zogoflex® packs a long lifespan. If for any reason it doesn’t, we offer a free one-time replacement.
Chew OR Play - Buying the right dog toy
Yeah, all Zogoflex dog toys are guaranteed, but not all were designed to be chew toys. While some dogs love to chew, some love to chase - So, be sure to get the toy that bet fits your dog's style. Need help? You're in luck, we have a guide just for you!
Dog toys made from Zogoflex® material are the best of everything. Really! These toys are durable. They aren't rigid, so they are gentle on teeth. They float. They are eco-friendly. Most important, they are FUN!
Easy clean-up: Zogoflex goes right into the dishwasher.
It’s easy to sanitize Zogoflex® at home—just pop it on the top shelf of your dishwasher.
Zogoflex floats—making a splash for water-happy hounds.
For dogs who love to swim (or just need a distraction in the bathtub), Zogoflex® stays afloat.

Jive versus Tux
February 10, 2014
Originally, I bought two of the Tux toys. However, one of my dogs is a very aggressive chewer, and he was able to tear pieces off of it in a little over a week. I don't let him have his chew toys constantly, and he was able to do that with 30-45 minutes of chew time each day.
When I emailed West Paw about the problem, they suggested trying the Jive ball instead. It has worked beautifully! They let me send the Tux back in exchange for the Jive, and my super chewer hasn't been able to destroy it yet.
I've only had one problem... my other dog was a little jealous because they now had different toys, so I ended up having to buy another Jive just for her! They both love them, and I feel more confident about letting them chew/play longer without worrying about pieces being chewed off and swallowed. I still watch them while they play, but I don't worry as much.
West Paw was very helpful and responsive to my problem/questions, and I will definitely be buying more from them in the future.
Love these products

Our young Border Collie was chewing through/apart every toy we purchased in a matter of hours. I went looking for a better solution and so glad we discovered West Paw. We purchased the Jive, the Hurley and the Tux. All three have been extremely durable (so far - indestructible!) as well as providing extended play value.

These balls are by far the best option for the two big Labradoodles I take to the local dog park for their owners, who are in their 80's and need to have these high energy pups run ragged. I love the balls because, unlike tennis balls, they don't get caked up with slobber and dirt. The muck just bounces right off them and they stay relatively clean. Also, they are really indestructible, which is critical for these big chompers. Not one ball has even suffered a dent in over 2 years. I get the largest size available, since these are huge dogs and they can handle them. I also like the fact that they aren't perfectly round. The older version had distinct ridges so that the dogs could really get a grip on them. The newer ones are not so distinctly ridged, unfortunately, but they are still pretty great. I also like the bright colors, so they stand out in the brown landscape here. I've only lost two in over 2 years, which is amazing considering the rocky and wild terrain of our park. I don't feel comfortable using them for my own smaller female heeler mix, Jelly, however, as her mouth is much more sensitive, and she doesn't like the hard rubber. Caution necessary, too with older dogs.

I thought this was great, my good destroys hard rubber balls within a month or two, so that they won't fit in the throwers anymore. this ball had no teeth marks on it at all after both mine and my parents dog had a very long chew on it.
The only thing is I WISHED IT GLOWED IN THE DARK as it got lost on a walk, in a bush. if it had glowed i might have found it.
I will be buying more as it did as described.

Best Toy for my Pit Rescue
November 21, 2013
I did a search for "indestructible dog ball" and came across the Jive Ball. I didn't believe my Stella wouldn't destroy it, but I thought, at least I'll be supporting manufacturing in the USA. I will never buy another dog ball. Stella's been playing with her Jive Balls for months now and they never even get a mark on them. They are fun for humans too because they are cleverly not quite perfectly spherical, so they take slightly (but not too wildly) unpredictable bounces, making the dog do crazy moves to chase them. The only reason I buy more Jive Balls is that Stella stashes them somewhere...if I could keep track of the Jive Ball, she would never need another one.
Jive is great for labs
November 11, 2013
We have a yellow lab who is an aggressive chewer. He tears up almost anything you put in front of him in short order. We have only found three dog toys that have (so far) stood the test of time. Two of those are West Paw products. Our Hurley lasted the longest so far at about three months of aggressive chewing before he was able to get the first piece out of it. He is still working on it after six months and it still has about two thirds of its original size. The jive ball is the second that has been unscathed now for about a month.
The only downside I have seen so far is finding a local store who stocks them. The big box pet stores seem to be tied up with the Kong products and cheap junk that falls apart in about an hour of use and some of the smaller ones haven't discovered West Paw yet. The price of the Jive and Hurley are very reasonable and when you consider total cost of ownership over the life of the toy they are a real bargain.
MOST DURABLE TOY PURCHASED FOR MY OLDER PUPPY!!
November 05, 2013
Bought this for our EXTREME puppy (german shepherd x black lab, he's a year and half old). We bought the large blue Hurley toy and the first day he had it in half and then down to the 2 nubs of each end (He still loves to have us throw those and chews on them like a soother lol). We bought him he Extreme Black Kong for super chewers and he had the first ring off the FIRST hour! (the rest of it survives to this day) and then tried this Blue ball Large size from West Paw and.... IT IS OFFICIALLY INDESTRUCTIBLE!!!! Had this toy for months now and virtually no signs of wear or tear even outside for days on end and then inside too. LOVE this toy! Just don't let them drop it on your foot! >< ouch lol. Very happy so far with West paw toys and will be buying more for our puppy and our older dog's stockings this year! THANKS!
Best ball ever!
October 31, 2013
The jive ball is the best ball ever for our energetic Labradoodle Midleton.
I bought 2 balls so he runs after one drops it and knows I will then throw the other ball.
I love the way the ball bounces and so does he. He trys to catch it midair.
Prior to purchasing his toys from West Paws he would have them destroyed in a matter of mins. Tennis balls were "toast" in no time.
I ran into a woman this Summer who had the Zisc and raved about it and mentioned the balls.
I am happy to say that Midleton owns the zisc, the hurley which he loves to chew on and play tug of war with and 3 balls (one for the car). The cost is more than what I would normally pay for a ball but I know that as long as we don't lose them they will be around for years to come.
Thank you for making such a great product!
