LaRoo Squeaky Rugby Ball Dog Toys
£12.99 for two toys
Bev's dog Rolo is ball crazy, so I thought he was the ideal candidate to review these squeaky rugby balls for us. The LaRoo squeaky balls come in four different colours - blue, orange, pink and lime green. Unfortunately you are unable to choose the colours you want, you are sent two randomly coloured balls. Rolo received a pink ball and a lime green ball.
I expected Rolo to love these toys, but unfortunately they were too heavy for him to pick up (he's a chihuahua cross Yorkshire Terrier so he's quite a small dog). They were also too heavy for Dottie the chihuahua and Scooby the Pomeranian. Bev feels that due to the size and weight of these balls, that they would be much better suited to larger dogs.
There are some definite positives about the toys though. The colours are lovely and bright so they are easily spotted in the grass when you throw them. They are also very bouncy, and as they are rugby ball shaped they bounce in random directions which is great fun for the dogs. Although Rolo and his brother and sister couldn't pick the balls up, they did enjoy chasing them around the garden when they were thrown for them.
The toys look to be quite tough but the dogs haven't tried chewing them so we can't comment on how long they'd last with a dog that chews toys.
Overall we wouldn't recommend the LaRoo rugby balls for small dogs, but larger dogs would enjoy them as they are fun and very bouncy. I do feel that the price is a bit high - £12.99 for two squeaky balls seems quite expensive to me. Bev and Rolo have given the rugby balls three out of five stars.
