Less than two minutes after my standard poodle was given this toy, he had the ball and rope off. The ball was shredded (I had to quickly take it away so he wouldn't swallow the pieces.) The seam where the rope was attached to the rest is open, so I don't expect that to last long either. This is not what I was expecting by the description.
not for tough chewers!
i had a black lab could not destroy!!!great toy if not tough tug of wars and chewers!!which my dogs are now!! one is 10 and the other 1 yr. old
Combat Extreme Toss n' Pull Toy
from NSW Australia07/24/2013
Our Rhodesian Ridgeback (11 mths old) enjoys playing with this toy but this toy is far from 'Combat' or 'Extreme' in regard to toughness when after two playing sessions it is already fraying/coming apart. It may be fine for a smaller breed dog?
The large dog version we received was useless in 1 day and destroyed completely within a week. EntirelyPets.com does not warrant their products, so caveat emptor.
This 'battle-tested' tug toy failed on day one and was completely destroyed within a week by my sharpei mix.
Combat Extreme Toss and Pull
from Sun City West, Az.05/30/2013
Ball was off in 5 minutes or less. Chewed to small pieces. Chewed into stuffing with 10 minutes. Stuffing out within 30 Minutes. Supposed to be tough toy, but not.
I have 4 German Shepherds with high prey driveand that do Schutzhund. Every toy I tried was too soft or too hard. Most tugs last about one training session and they're done but this Bamboo tug has held up for months and months. It is their favorite toy. I tried to find more at the store when I bought it and finally gave up until I found this site. The toy was 6 dollars cheaper here. I bought three. The ball does not last very long gets in the way during training but the tug is still going strong.
Combat Extreme Toss n? Pull Dog Toy
Once again, my 2 dogs had this toy destroyed within 10 minutes tugging on it with each other.
Not for aggressive chewers
My two dobermans had tore apart this toy within one hour of giving it to them. The search continues for a loooooong lasting toy...
He loves the toy. He clamps on to the long part and slings the ball back and forth, hitting anything he can. The ball crushed quickly, but he is a strong chewer.
Gave the toy to my Great Dane and Aussie and it didn't last 15 minutes. The rope pulled out in the first tug of war. Tennis ball was quickly pulled off and in shreds soon after. A waste of money!

These products filled my expectations 100% perfect for training
I use these for training toys and they really hold together. I have had one for over 2 years. The best part is they have a softer bite than "fire plugs" and they don't need the break in time. My dogs love them. It is hard to find Bamboo toys but Entirely pets always carries them. I ordered spares in case one gets lost. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because of the tennis ball and rope. I remove these since I don't let my dogs have tennis balls or rope toys. Great product - fast shipping.
