Hi I think this has been asked before but wondering if there are any more ideas. Doggy tennis balls last 5 mins in the ball launcher because Harley likes to squeeze them while running back. I have tried rubber balls but there a bit heavy and he doesn't like them because he cant squeeze them. The rate were going with tennis balls its a ball a day. Just wondered if anyone else had some better staffy proof balls they could suggest.

Thank you

We use these. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hardware-Chuckit-Whistler-Throwers-Chuckers/dp/B00280MUXU

They don't whistle loudly to us but the dogs adore them. (I don't think they'd really whistle at all without the speed you get with a launcher). Plus they seem to withstand chewing really well, they have lots of teeth marks in them now but even Chaos hasn't managed to break one.

We used to get the Slazenger ones from Sports Direct. Think they were like 4 in a can and two cans for £8 but they'd last Knox a while. Tennis balls were his favourite and our house is still covered in them lol find them everywhere!
