KONG Ball Review

A KONG Classic Ball Built To Last

The KONG Ball is a very durable and long-lasting fetch toy that can also be used as a tug toy. Let’s see how it holds up.

Quality & Durability

As one would expect with a KONG toy durability is obvious as soon as you pick this dog ball toy up. Other than the hole that is cut right through the middle the toy is a mass of solid rubber. Despite being very thick the fetch toy has a very nice texture and can be squeezed firmly. Perfect for a big dog that likes to chew and possibly even a stress ball for humans.

Fun Factor

While I enjoy playing with the ball as a fetch toy it is neither Eli’s nor my favorite fetch ball. It doesn’t have a lot of bounce to it or give for chewing. Admittedly, this is more suited to be used as a tug toy though I have not bought a rope for this yet. I also have not found a treat yet that works well with this toy though I will update at a later date once I test those capabilities. If you have any suggestions I’d love to hear your reviews and recommendations for this dog toy, leave a comment below!

Value

This toy has already lasted a few years with no signs of wear. It will definitely last many more and stand up to even the heaviest power chewers and large dogs.

Safety

This KONG toy is simple, safe and easy to clean. The high-quality rubber doesn’t shred, chip, flake or even show bite marks after 2 years I would not worry about leaving a dog unattended with this toy.

Indoor: Since it is heavier than the average ball it can definitely knock things over if thrown inside. Definitely be careful if you do so.

Final Thoughts

After over 2 years of using the KONG ball it still looks like it is brand new. While it makes a decent fetch ball and likely a good tug toy, it is kind of average at both. There are definitely better versions of each toy but if you’re looking to add a very durable and versatile toy to collection this is one might be right for you.
