We were lucky enough to win a pair of PULLER rings by COLLAR Pet Products earlier this year, as well as to review a set of their wonderful soft leather collars & leashes we have been using on a very regular basis! We were curious about their new product, the LIKER Cord & LIKER Ball, and are excited to announce that they met our high expectations!

Great for Exercise & Dog Training
As hinted at in today’s blog post title, the LIKER balls are so much more than just an average ball. They are a fantastic means of shaking things up a bit!
The first usage that comes to mind with these balls is certainly to use them for a good game of fetch – which we definitely did as our boy Buzz is a huge fan of playing fetch, and he had a blast with both LIKER balls!
Side Note: What’s surprising is that even our girl Missy was intrigued by the orange new balls…she’s usually not that interested in toys (unless they are small and fast moving!), but jumped in several times to play tug-of-war with her big brother using the LIKER Cord!
Now here’s the fun part ~ I was also able to incorporate the LIKER String ball into our trick training! Buzz recently learned a new trick which involves opening the fridge.
I had tied a long rope toy to the fridge door which Buzz pulled on in order to open it. In much the same manner, the LIKER String ball was tied to the fridge door and Buzz pulled on it with the same enthusiasm he had shown for pulling on the long rope toy!
A variation of this could certainly be to tie the String ball to your patio or balcony door (after having unlocked and opened it just a tiny bit) and have your pup pull on it while walking backwards or sideways in order to fully open it.
Orange for High Visibility
When designing the outer appearance of the LIKER balls, COLLAR went with stylish AND practical orange ~ have you ever had a hard time finding a blue or green ball in your yard or a park? You won’t have any trouble finding this bright orange ball, guaranteed!
Lightweight, Floaty, Harmless
The LIKER Ball as well as the smaller LIKER String version are surprisingly light – meaning they won’t accidentally brake windows or knock over any other object…a good feature to have when you’re not the greatest thrower of balls…such as myself 😉
With winter being just around the corner here in our Northern Hemisphere, they also won’t sink into a pile of snow ~ they are simply too light for that scenario.
Since they also float on water, they are the perfect toy to take along on any excursion involving swim time ~ we’ll take ours next time we book an indoor swimming session at RiverBark Pet Retreat.
One of my favorite features are the harmless materials both balls are made of – rubber – plastic – nylon – cotton.
There’s really but one issue I can think of with the LIKER Balls: They are only available in medium and large sizes (to my knowledge). Although they are also portrayed next to a Yorkshire Terrier on Pinterest (click for picture), I’m not sure that this particular (or any) toy breed would be able to carry the ball around in her mouth.
Overall Missy & Buzz give their new LIKER Balls 8 enthusiastic paws up ~ any toy that can get Missy’s attention is a winner in our book!
