Indestrutuable dober toys?
I am looking for some toys that will last. I have wubba's, kong's but want something for outdoors that won't get lost easily. I have some acreage and don't want to spend all day recovering lost toys.
I've heard that jolly balls good toys, and are bigger and easier to find in the yard. Does anyone have one, and if so what side do you have or wish you would have gotten instead. Is bigger better?

My bil is on his 2nd for his large playful & very strong GSD. I think he said that they lasted about 6 - 8 months - compared to other outdoor toys that lasted one day, sometimes only one hour. It looks really large, maybe it's the 10 inch?
They love it.

Boats 'N Dobes
Rams has enjoyed, and tried to destroy, our Starmark Everlasting Treat Ball for a long time with no damage. He likes the treat wafers but wont play with it if there is nothing inside for him to eat.
His second favorite toy is a firehose. My local fire department donated a 15' roll of old hose for my Dobershark. I washed the hose, cut it to length, stuffed it, and included a squeaker. I took it to a local upholstery shop and had the ends sewn and added a rope added for a few dollars. It has lasted for a couple months even tho he has ripped the ends and pulled the stuffing, he still throws, chases, and chews the hose.
I also began buying rope by the foot instead of purchasing rope dog toys. You can find the thick cotton rope at a supply store and buy ten feet of rope for the price of one rope toy. Just tie the knots at the desired length and cut the rope. These arent Doberproof but cheap entertainment.

With my guys, the only toy they can't destroy is the one they dont play with.
They have had Jolly Balls, and they love them, but the handles get chewed off pretty quick. The good thing about the Jolly Ball though, it that even with the handle chewed off and the ball poked full of holes, the ball stays inflated. Its probably worth a try.

Max has destroyed 2 of the jolly balls. Yep, the handles go first. I did get him his own soccer ball and that has lasted a while.

Bad Cuz (and the Good Cuz for that matter) are squeaky balls that are virtually indestructible. They are the only toy Red has had his whole life and not been able to destroy.
However, they are annoying as hell so I only recommend them if you have good earplugs or nerves of steel lol

There's the Unbreakoball, which may or may not actually be indestructible. I don't know. Elka won't play with it for any length of time, without vigorous urging. Maybe if I'd gotten the smaller one?

Rowan has the good cuz and so far so good. My mom bought her little puggle mix a smaller bad cuz and it's already lost all but one limb and Rowan loves it even more then her because it fits so nicely in his mouth that he can just stand there and squeak it with out much effort while his good cuz is a little too big for that ;p
