My pup seems delighted with this, and it has a fairly unique texture and toughness/flex quality. Not like anything I've seen in my local high end dog shops.
My foster pup is an extremely super strong chewer and quickly chewed through everything we tried. He was always so sad when we’d take the remnants away. Then, finally, we tried the Ruff Dawg indestructible floating ball. Hallelujah! Almost three weeks in, and the only wear and tear is some surface scratching. He takes his ball everywhere - to bed, on walks, out to do his business. And he loves playing fetch with it, inside and out. It is his emotional support ball, as well as his favorite thing in the world.
I am the puppy instructor at the GSDCW and we use the 2.5mm (smallest prong size) on all our new pups that come into class starting from 12 to 20 weeks. The quick release button is a great feature if you have a hard time removing or adding prongs, plus you can achieve a very snug fit under the ears. When we explain to first time owners that the collar emulates the mother dog correcting the pup, they really understand its importance.
Makes all the difference. I cannot believe my large dog now walks without pulling.
I now can walk my very large 9-month puppy just about anywhere without pulling and I am a senior.
Does not hurt my dog and my dog stands still when I put it on. Love it. Thanks again. Rainy
