You might not know that we invented the Orbee-Tuff ® Raspberry B12 more than 7 years ago when we developed it for veterinarians in the treatment of canine teeth misalignment (known as malocclusion) as an alternative treatment to surgery in small dogs. We then offered it to handlers and it quickly became our best selling tug toy, then others copied us. We dropped this toy a few years ago because tough tuggers were splitting the balls as they do not have a solid core. But you asked for it again so if you have a soft tugger this is the best pocket ball tug we offer. (For tough tuggers please look at our MegaLast B12; the Raspberry is not guaranteed from splitting.) Orbee-Tuff® Planet Dog balls are made in the USA, are non-toxic, rinse clean, durable, float, mint-scented, will not wear down your dog's teeth. Our GRIP ULTRA bungee inserted in the 1” (25mm) soft-touch tubular nylon climbing webbing has three times the resistance than standard bungee giving maximum shock absorption. Length: 14" (36cm); stretches to 19" (48cm). Salty Dog toys are designed only for interactive play with your dog. Supervise your dog at all times. They are not designed for chewing.
While the orbee ball is soft the handle is tough! It also has more weight than I expected making it a nice weight to throw!
My 14-month-old Portuguese Water Dog destroys most tug toys very quickly. She absolutely loves this toy. We only use it when training for agility, it is very motivating.
