What Are Real Pet Owners and Pet Industry Professionals Saying About Varsity Pets?

---

"Dear Varsity Pets,

You couldn't have delivered more on your promise of "Give us your worst and we'll send them home exhausted and defeated!"  We have a 100lb, 1-year-old German Shepherd who absolutely destroyed any and every toy you can give him; we saw some dogs on YouTube playing with the Varsity Ball and decided to give it a try -- we couldn't have been more pleased!!!

Our dog goes absolutely nuts for this ball -- normal toys aren't enough for him, and he quickly destroys them or is bored by them.  But this ball gets his attention and keeps it! If we didn't take the ball away, he'd play with the Varsity Ball until he dropped.  We definitely monitor him so that he doesn't get too tired.

This was worth every cent, and we would recommend this for any dog to get exercise and have fun ... because he LOVES it.

Thank you for a great product!!"

"Dear Varsity Pets,

I received my varsity ball in the mail earlier today. I was excited and my puppy was excited but he didn't know why ... Now he's an exhausted 100lb, 10 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback that is OBSESSED with his new yellow ball. This is easily the best heavy duty, extra strong toy we've ever owned and I'm really excited to tell fellow other dog owners all about. The size is so perfect for him and he adores playing with it! Thanks for such a great and thoughtful product!"

"I have to get a leash and pull Ozzy away from it... I have to put him in a different yard to go to bathroom... He has passed out on top of it... He LOVES that Varsity Ball. Thanks again."

"My 130 pound rottie loves it! He destroys every toy we buy him. But so far not this one!"

"Being an English Mastiff breeder, I had given up hope of ever finding a ball that could pass the test of my fur babies. Most balls barely hit the ground before they are destroyed. I've tried them all. I was reading about the Varsity Ball tested on lions and tigers! Out of all our dogs, the real ball test is with Layla n Bailey. If it can survive these 2 then you've got a ball. Layla is blind. She uses balls to run. She can play soccer with the best. But she tends to bite and shake the ball when playing. Most balls get destroyed quickly with her. She becomes obsessed until she rips them up. The longest survival was 2 months with a hard ball. Until now. We have to take this ball away or she would never come in and rest. She chases that ball back and forth across the farm. She stays with the clicking noise that her nails make on the ball.  Bailey, 240 lbs, usually plays with a 6x6 block of wood. It starts out 6ft long. But doesn't last. Bailey loves his ball, well the pieces that are left behind after a few hours of play. But your ball has been with Bailey for 4 weeks now and only a couple of scratches. He will play for hours, he use to pack the pieces of his other balls around. He plays until he gets tired then lays and whines because he can't destroy it!!! I have shared your website with all our puppy adopters. I just wanted to thank you for making my babies so happy! I recommend these great balls to anyone. Our next purchase will be the smaller ones for playing fetch. Thanks again, one happy Mastiff Mom!!"

"Just received the Varsity Ball tonight.  What a great product! Abruzzi, my almost five year-old shepherd/lab mix LOVES it!!!"

"The varsity ball is really something special.   For the service dog here, it's totally amazing.  Actually had to contact the original trainer (Slovakia/Florida) for some new training advice..   like a new command in Slovak to get the normally serene and perfect service dog to STOP in her tracks, freeze (when necessary) while with the ball."

"Hello,

Just wanted to tell you what a great product you are making.

I as a veterinary technician at the Midwest's largest no-kill dog sanctuary. We are always looking for enrichment for the dogs here, and someone donated a varsity ball. I was so impressed with the durability. Attached is a picture comparing the way it is holding up compared to another name brand ball we received."

"I was very skeptical at first and almost laughed when I watched your demo videos and read the testimonials.   We have a very active and playful 3 year old German Shepherd and she destroys most other toys.  It took a few minutes for her to get use to the toy but she plays with it just like your video.  I couldn’t believe it, I was thinking “gee how long is this going to last, she will get bored in a week or so!?”  Well it has been over 6 months and she loves the ball, she goes right for it every time we let her out and she goes and goes and goes – we have to go get her an bring her in the house.   We back up to a soccer field that is almost always empty so we are out there with our kids all the time playing and our dog just plays with the varsity ball and lets us do our practice, soccer or baseball or whatever.  Not only does it work, she gets a great workout chasing and “wrestling” with it.  She will go and go for over an hour on it, she does takes breaks as it wears her out.  It is bar none her favorite toy!"

"[M]y dog LOVES her varsity ball!  Best money I've spent on one product and she works with it 'alone' so to speak draining her energy.  We supervise her but she just pushes that ball all over the yard barking her head off."

- Shelly Q.

---

"The ball is her absolute favorite toy... she is actually crazy for it. She doesn't bark at it so much anymore, and has increased her skill and agility in her own personal ballgame to a level that is thrilling to watch. Thanks for a great toy."

"Otis, my  70# American Pit Bull Terrier LOVES to tear up his toys.  Being part terrier he loves to chase his Varsity Ball through the yard and try to catch it.  When he goes to grab it with his mouth or paws, it shoots away and he goes chasing after it again.  He has not been able to tear up this toy, truly a first for him."

- Barbara C., Dogs on the Go, http://dogsonthego.net/

"Great job on the Varsity Ball.  My 125 pd rottweiler LOVES it and I love that he can't tear it up. Best money I've ever spent on a toy.  Thanks again!"

"OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We got our ball today! BEST ball on the market! Hands down, thumbs Up! And we've tried a lot of balls. Can't wait to share this with my doggie friends. WELL worth the money! Thank you, Varsity Pets!!!"

"Good afternoon. Just wanted to touch base with you regarding our purchase of the Varsity Ball, which is such a hit that my wife and I have to literally take it away from Sully at night otherwise he won’t come in the house. So far, absolutely thrilled with the purchase regarding the indestructibility of the ball and the exercising of the dog."

- Eric T.

"Got the ball in, the dogs have played with it for 3 hours and hard enough to wear the printing off! It was a HUGE hit with our Search and Rescue Team dogs as well as our Schutzhund class dogs. The Rotties all seem to like the tuck under the belly and roll it backwards method and the German Shepherds are fans of the push it thru the field with your nose herding style. Thanks, I can see a second one our future really soon!"

"My 4 year old American Bulldog, Charlie, received a bright orange Varsity Ball for Christmas.  I had done research looking for an indestructible ball for him and ordered the Varsity Ball from Amazon.  Charlie's Varisty Ball lives up to your advertisements.  It's tough.  And Charlie loves it.  He has rubbed his nose a little raw from playing so much.  We took a break from playing with it yesterday to give his nose time to heal.  Charlie is ready to get back at it today.
Thanks for a great product.

I just wanted to say how much my dog (German Shepherd) LOVES his varsity ball!!!!  He gets so frustrated when it won’t go where he wants it to go and barks his head off at it while he’s trying to maneuver it.  Thank you so much for making these wonderful toys!!!"

"I just wanted to let you know that my dog, a pit bull named Monty, loves playing with his Varsity ball!  He pushes the ball all around the yard, whimpering the entire time because he can't get it into his mouth.  I have to physically drag him away from his ball to get him into the house!"

"Just wanted to say that my male GSD after 4 days has not stopped playing with the pink Varsity ball. He has claimed it as his own and will not allow my female boxer, or his future wife to play with it. It is teaching him direction with it. I will be posting pics over the weekend on how he directs this ball to go where he wants it too. HE LOVES IT!"

"What a hit! They had so much fun playing today. I have two Jack Russell's and they cannot destroy the Varsity ball although they tried. I run them every day playing fetch. Sometimes I do not have the time to play fetch, so this ball will definitely keep them busy. Thanks for such a great product. Tell the gang on the assembly .......a job well done."

"I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say Thank you for donating a Varsity ball to the AWDF 2012 National Trail raffle.

 
I knew this would be a hit with my little Staffy bull, so I put all my raffle tickets in the cup and was lucky enough to win it.   It is hands down the favorite toy now and unlike many other option out there, it truly is indestructible (hooray!).  
 
I will be recommending this product to my students."

"I have tried many thing to help my dog Willow increase her core strength to help her in the sport of dock diving. We run, we swim, we fetch uphill. But then I used the Varsity Ball.  It was so much fun for her to play with and it really helped her build strength and endurance. We only used it for a short time before our last event and she did the best she has ever done at any event! I can't wait to see where she will be next year after a lot of work with our Varsity Ball!"

"Our dogs love playing with the Varsity Ball. It is just one more way that we live true to our word when we tell our clients to 'Bring 'em in wired and take 'em home tired.' The fact that it is indestructible is a real bonus since there could be 10 dogs playing with it at the same time."

"I was pet sitting for a friend when I first got to see a varsity ball in action. My friend's dog would get so excited when I got the ball out and play happily for such a long time! I usually just watched him run around the yard, dribbling the ball, pullng it backwards with his front paws, and trying to mouth it. All around a great dog toy!"

- Emily S.

"My almost 10 year old GSD LOVES his new tennis ball!  I have never seen him play as much with any toy as he plays with the Varsity Ball, he's a toy hog, holds it in his mouth and carries it around...he gets so frustrated that he can't pick up the Varsity Ball with his mouth, it keeps him busy until he's tuckered out!!"
