Week of Christmas Giveaway #5: Orbee Old Soul ball review and giveaway

A Week of Christmas Giveaways Day #5!
Today--Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Old Soul Ball

























The Planet Dog Old Soul ball is designed for seniors. This is the greatest idea, a ball that is specifically designed for the needs of our older friends! The toy addresses the issues of reduced vision and smell, weakened jaw muscles and brittle teeth. The ball is double soft, and double minty. I could smell the mint the minute I opened the packaging. Ike loved the mint too, licking the ball for minutes. He loved chewing on it and didn't want to stop. I think it's fantastic that a company has considered the play needs of senior dogs and designed a toy just for them.



















One word of caution: I thought Ike was a weak chewer. He even is missing half his teeth! He's never ripped apart a toy or broken into a tennis ball. But he chewed through the Old Soul ball and ate a few large chunks. So please watch your dog, as with any toy, because even if they are a senior, they still may have stronger chewing ability than is appropriate for this ball.


We are giving away one Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Old Soul ball to each of THREE winners! Enter below.

a Rafflecopter giveaway *Full Disclosure- We were given one toy to review and three to give away. This in no way influenced my review. Opinions here are 100% my own.

  1. A ball for old dogs -- what a great idea! Roxy is getting older (pushing 10) and I worry about her teeth. This is so cool.

  10. My senior Coonhound girl, Suki, will be 14 in February. She tries very hard to keep up with the rest of the "pack" (four more rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds in the 4-6 year old range)but her age keeps her from doing as much as I know she'd like to do. She can't always use the same toys the others do so I think this would be great for her.

  13. my pugs love balls but jaxon eats the fuzz off tennis balls so they do not get them. They would love this no fuzz and can play ball and chew. chew if the most favorite thing for jaxon to do.

  19. Our St. Bernard loves to play with balls, probably because he can hide the entire ball in his mouth.It's always nice to be able to play with him with this type of toy.The Orbee Old Soul ball is a great ball. The durability even for a gentle giant as our special pal.Even though he is still young the value of this type of toy for all dogs is evident. Rene Chartier (Joan)
