It is with great sadness that Varsity Pets, the maker of the great Indestructible Varsity Ball has announced the closing of their business. This ball will no longer be available.
The one and only dog ball with a 110% guarantee! Thanks to the patent-pending design, thousands have been sold and exactly ZERO destroyed. No human interaction necessary! The Varsity Ball is designed to stimulate a dog’s natural herding instincts and play drive. It’s too big for dogs to destroy or possess in their mouths, so they wear themselves out just trying to “figure it out.” This durable dog toy is number one for dog exercise.
Varsity Ball Features:
- For active large dogs
- Junior size for smaller active pets
- Full body workout
- Best play buddy around
- 110% guarantee if destroyed
- Made in America
The Varsity Ball is intended to be used outdoors and with supervision. Dogs should not be left alone with the Varsity Ball -- they might hurt themselves or get into other trouble. They need to be supervised while playing. The Varsity Ball also should not be played with inside because (due to its size and weight) it may cause damage to personal property or harm to pets and people. Please only allow pets to play with it outside. The Varsity Ball should not be used as a “chew toy”.
It is very frustrating for dogs that are used to destroying their toys to find out that this ball is “the one” they can’t destroy. Due to its large size and curvature, dogs can’t possess it in their mouths, Instead, as they try to close their mouths on it; the Varsity Ball squirts away, mimicking the movement of a live play companion. This is double frustrating. It’s so large, mobile, and durable that dogs wrestle with it just like they would with another playful dog. It’s a constant puzzle for play-driven and high-energy dogs.
Now Available For Small Breeds!
For small, high-energy dogs, we're proud to introduce the JUNIOR VARSITY BALL! It's every bit as tough as a full-size Varsity Ball, but only half the size.
Herding breeds, working breeds, sporting breeds, and large hounds are best suited for the 12" Varsity Ball. Dogs weighing less than 50 pounds are more suited to our 6" Varsity Ball. Dogs with low energy levels (such as older dogs) probably would be better off with another kind of toy. The Varsity Ball is for high energy dogs that love to run, jump, play, wrestle, fetch, romp, and generally wreak havoc.
The “110% Guarantee"" is our promise that if, through normal, intended use, your dog breaks or destroys a 12"" Varsity Ball, then we will replace the item and refund 10% of your original purchase price. The 110% Guarantee only applies to 12” Varsity Ball products. If your ferocious beast manages to also break the replacement ball, we won’t replace the second broken ball or refund any additional money.
What Size is Right For My Dog?
It is very important that you choose the correct size ball for your dog. The ball should be too large for your dog to fit into its mouth or grip with its teeth in any way. Dogs with jaws longer than 4 inches from the rear molars to the tip of the snout are too large for the (6”) Junior Varsity Ball and should ONLY be allowed to play with the full-size (12”) Varsity Ball. The Junior Varsity Ball is only appropriate for toy breeds and other small dogs well under 50 pounds in weight.
Allowing larger dogs to play with Junior Varsity Balls can lead to chewing, which is NOT how the balls are intended to be used. Use of our balls as chew toys will serve to void our guarantees and compromise the famed toughness of the products. It may also lead to damaged teeth.
Please err on the side of caution (i.e., if in any doubt, go with the full-size Varsity Ball), contact us with any questions, and take your ball away from your dog if you notice him successfully gnawing on it. You can always return it to us for a refund.
