Nerf’s Take on the Classic Tennis Ball For Dogs
The Nerf Dog Tennis Ball Blaster Distance Ball with squeaker is your standard dog fetch toy with a squeaky toy twist. It has a low fuzz exterior and is made 30% light for safety.
Quality & Durability
I want to say that these Nerf balls are slightly thinner than a regular tennis ball. You can sense it when you grab and squeeze it and doesn’t feel as heavy or has the bounce of a real tennis ball though it is very close. The squeaker is small but nice, not to loud. My biggest gripe with this ball is the seams between the two halves of the ball, my dog was able to chew a few of these and split them in no time.

It is a fetch toy that also squeaks so your dog will want to get its paws on this faster than you can throw it. You might not even get it fetched back when your dog decides to start chewing it to get the squeaker instead of playing with you. The colors are bright and fun and the felt feels nice in the hand.back to menu ↑
Since it did not stand up to the Chew Test and went through 4 of these in less than a week I have to rate this low accordingly, this is Chew Test after all. Nerf did not design these for Rottweilers or Pitbulls however but for likely for smaller dogs or dogs with less bite force.back to menu ↑
Once the ball is split there is not much left for the dog to do with it because by then the squeaker will likely have been chomped on as well. At which point you’ll be left with two tennis ball halves, a crushed squeaker and maybe some shredded felt. Oh, and regrets.
Indoor use: Very light though has a decent bounce so watch out for stuff on counters.
Outdoor use: The fuzz on these is thin so it doesn’t pick up as much dirt as a regular tennis ball. Clean as necessary.back to menu ↑
I came across these balls as part of the Nerf Blaster Gun pack which came with 4 of these balls. Not before long I had a blaster gun and no balls to shoot with because my dog had chewed them all in half trying to get the squeaker out of it. Recommended for small to medium dogs at best.back to menu ↑
This might last longer with small and some medium sized dogs but for any kind of power chewer this won’t last. Keep an eye on it if you decide to get this as you would with any tennis ball.
