From the description of this ball and many of the reviews i bought it thinking it would be strong enough for my dog. She's a small pit mix..45 pounds.. But she can chew and destroy many tough chewer toys. The lump of coal was just delivered today and i was surprised my how soft it is. It's hollow with 2 holes, and it's flexible enough to squeeze with my left hand (my weak side). I won't know how it holds up until after Christmas but felt like i needed to write this review. This toy is expensive and had i known it was this soft i don't think i would have spent 17 dollars on it. On a positive it does have a nice minty smell.
I saved my review for after one year of use by my border collie mix. The ball is in great shape after a year of heavy play. The word "coal" is gone but the rest of the ball is in great shape. This dog destroys tennis ball-like toys, ripping the cover off of them. With the Planet Dog balls (we have several) he doesn't try to destroy them. This is a great toy if your dog likes to play ball and is rough on toys. But some people said their dog ripped it up. Maybe if your dog gets its kicks destroying toys, it will destroy this one too. My dog destroys a lot of things (shoes, stuffed animals, other "indestructible" dog toys) but has not destroyed this ball in 12 months of active play.
This unassuming lumpy ball is tougher than you'd expect for something that feels somewhat pliable. It's fresh peppermint scent doesn't appear to be a deterrent to our spaniel (although it's no match for his rotten breath). The lettering did get washed/ scraped off rather quickly due to the dog's saliva and general gnawing on it, but it's minimal and I'm not terribly concerned about it. It's fairly bouncy and hollow, so we play with it in the house and outside. He really likes squeezing it (no squeaker, don't worry) and just kind of pumps his jaws on it. Anything to keep him occupied! The holes also prevent him from making a vacuum seal with his tongue, etc so I don't have to worry about oral injury - a major plus. Because it has holes, it makes a very soft almost-whistling sound when thrown (similar to the ChuckIt Whistler ball, but wayyyy quieter).
I dropped a star for the lettering b/c I think the printing on the toy is unnecessary to begin with and the fact that it just...
