My dog absolutely loves this ball! She's a 45 lb mutt with a tendency to tear toys apart after a few days. I can see it lasting much longer than the standard soccer ball with a rubber inside and plastic outside. She played for an hour out in the field this morning and had a great time- no air lost. When she's done playing with the ball, I can just run the hose over it and it's completely clean.I don't know that this ball would make a great soccer ball. The few times I kicked it, I thought my toe was going to break. Also, when it hits your leg be prepared for a nice little welt.This should be advertised as a dog toy (which is what I wanted)- not in sports.
