Planet Dog – Orbee-Tough Squeak Ball

With a new puppy in the house, I was looking for a very tough toy; one that can stand up to thousands of chews, stayed fun, and was ‘fetch-able’.

Walking around the grocery store, I found just the thing, the Orbee-Tough Squeak by Planet Dog. This ball has all the characteristics I was looking for, and more.

It was very quishy so it would be easy on gums and teeth, it had a squeaker (but not overly loud!), it was rated 5 out of 5 in toughness on the packaging, and it was very bouncy and a toy that we can train fetch with. As a bonus, it is Made in the USA, and floats if I ever want to use it on water.

The ball itself is about 3″ in diameter, has a texture similar to an orange, and according to the website, comes in two colors, though the store I bought it in only had one color: orange.

The packaging is easy to remove as it was two, small, plastic hooks (like you would see on a piece of clothing that holds the price and size tag on). The rest of the documentation was a fold-out card made from paper (easily recyclable – one of the core values of Planet Dog).

When I got it home, I gave it a few squishes to make it squeek; tossed it across the floor, and the pup started chasing it right away. He carried it around, and has now ‘claimed it’. He likes following it as I throw it across the room, and it bounces easily, so it catches his attention. When throwing it at the stairs, it bounces back giving him a surprise as it bounces back toward him!

While it is more expensive than other squeaking balls, I like the durability, the Made in the USA quality, the 100% guarantee on it, and the ethics of the company. While it was a bit of a sticker shock at $16.00, the feeling quickly left me as I saw how much fun the dogs were having with it.
