Jolly Ball Giveaway | Happy Birthday Rudy

If you follow Talking Dogs blog, you already know that Rudy loves his Jolly ball.  It is, by far, his favorite dog toy.  More than once, someone has seen a photo of our dogs with a Jolly ball and asked about them.

Actually, we have more than one Jolly ball at our house because all three of our dogs love them.  Yes, eventually the ropes give out in one way or another, but it is very easy to slide in a new piece of soft cotton rope (purchased at any hardware store) and tie two knots.

Though we simply call them Jolly balls, their real name is Romp-n-Roll and they're made by Jolly Pets.  With the rope through the middle, they're barking good for interactive games like tug of war, keep away and fetch.  


These low density balls are resistant to punctures (even our oldest has zero punctures in 7 years of rowdy retriever play.)  They're made of non-toxic material, too.  They come in 3 sizes:  4.5", 6" and 8"

Perfect to play with your dog solo or with more than one dog at a time.  Rudy and Rosie love to play with a Jolly ball together.



Since we're celebrating Rudy's birthday today, we're offering you a chance to win a Jolly ball for your dog!  Sorry, due to shipping costs, only those with US shipping addresses are eligible.

One lucky winner will receive a Jolly ball in the size they choose.  Enter now via the Rafflecopter below.

  2. These are awesome balls! We have several at the shelter and the dogs LOVE them. I've been wanting to get one for my Titan cause he loves Jolly balls just doesn't have this one. I'm opting for the 6" because he might trip over the 8" one with that rope! haha Thanks for the opportunity! This is a fabulous giveaway!

  4. How awesome! Happy Birthday to Rudy - I hope his special day is filled with treats, tummy rubs and Jolly-ball playtime. :) Our dogs would love the 8" Jolly ball if they win - they're just giant puppies at heart. Thanks for a great giveaway.

  6. What a jolly good idea! We have never had such a ball, so I guess it would be a good way to give one a try!

  8. I think they'd enjoy the 8" ball since Vlad always seems to end up with the "end" of rope toys. I'm wondering if we could attach a longer rope on it and put it on a pole for them to play tetherball with? There's a pole sitting in the middle of their fenced area that we've never figured out what it was there for, and we've thought about doing that.

  9. Happy Birthday Rudy!!! Love the pictures of him with the Jolly Ball! He's so handsome and looks so great running with it, he should be a model for Jolly Pet products!

  10. Happy Birthday handsome Rudy!! You're such a Good Boy to give away presents on your birthday! Good Doggie!

    I think Rita would like the 6" ball. I think that rope would be kinda handy for her... and hopefully keep the ball from rolling down our canyon. (We live on a canyon - it's fenced in, but we only have a very small part of our yard that is human-usable. The rest is a STEEP slope. Rita has a big ball that she loves, but I don't like to play with it since it always seems to roll toward the edge of the canyon, and if it gets stuck under a bush, it takes all Rita's courage to retrieve it! Thinking the rope on the Jolly ball would help keep it from rolling away - or at least make it easier for Rita to grab and drag back up the hill!)

    I don't know what size would be perfect but I'm guessing 6"?

  13. Hmm Shiner's probably a little smaller than your dogs. She's about 50 lbs, no either the 6 or 8 inch maybe. Every time I see your dogs playing with these I think they look so cool!

    We have a small dog so even though he probably thinks he could hand the large one he probably would have more fun with the 4.5″
