The Bionic ball was a great hit with my dogs. It has survived several attempts to chew it to pieces, and provided hours of fun and play. One of my dogs who doesn't usually bother with balls likes this ball and he will play with it, probably because it's more of a challenge to him than tennis balls.
FULL OF FUN.
Throw toy against the spine and it bounces normally. When your dog thinks he knows where its going to bounce, throw it against the opening to create an unpredictable bounce that's hours of fun!
Same size as a tennis ball – so its familiar to your dog and fits your existing chucking/throwing toys!
DESIGNED FOR BIONIC PLAY. GUARANTEED.
Our proprietary "Bionic Rubber®" material ensures that your dog will enjoy playing with the Bionic Ball for a long time. Learn more about our innovative material and our guarantee.
Bionic Rubber® is a revolutionary material that can withstand the aggressive play patterns of most pets. Bionic products have been tested in rescue shelters and day cares around the U.S. for years. By making and destroying countless samples, we know Bionic Rubber® can hold up to the most aggressive chewers.
Our designers took years perfecting this bone! Careful attention was made to ensure it fits naturally in the curvature of the canine mouth. The ridges across the top give your dog the feeling that they are chewing through the toy – keeping them interested in it for months! Its unique interior shape provides strength for even the most aggressive chewers.
We see it all the time - dogs enjoy Bionic toys so much, they go back to our toys consistently sometimes with their most aggressive chewing and play. We call it "Bionic Play."

Its important to select the size of your Bionic toy carefully. Smaller dogs generally have sharper teeth which require a toy to have more puncture resistance; however the toy also needs to be softer since a toy that's too hard could cause harm to the dog's teeth.
Large dogs have much more force (pressure) in their bite but also have teeth with more surface area which can more easily destroy soft toys, which make toys that are a bit harder a better option for ensuring durability.SmallRecommended for Puppies Upto 10kgs - 6cm Diameter MediumRecommended for Dogs 10-25kgs - 7cm Diameter LargeRecommended for Dogs 25-35kg - 8cm Diameter Extra LargeRecommended for Dogs 35kg and over - 10cm Diameter
Bionic Rubber® is modified at a molecular level to provide optimal performance based on the size dog the toy will be given to. We strengthen the puncture resistance properties in the material for smaller dogs while also softening the toy to feel comfortable to the dog's teeth. In larger toys, Bionic Rubber® molecules are enhanced to have additional force resistance and strengthened to feel slightly harder and more durable for large dogs.
TOY USE AND CARE
Important – No Toy is Completely Indestructible.
Bionic toys are highly durable and last a long time. However, years of research have taught us that there are roughly 1% of dogs that can still find a way to damage, break and in rare cases, destroy our toys. Always supervise your dog's use of Bionic toys. If your dog breaks or damages any toy, remove it from them immediately.
Select the size of your Bionic toy appropriately for the size dog you have. Our toys have been specifically designed to work with the play patterns and bite forces of most dogs as categorized below. See our sizing guide to choose appropriate toys for your dog.
If your dog damages the toy, consider selecting another size or shape to better match the design of the toy with the play pattern and bite force of your dog.
It is important to regularly inspect your dog's toys. You should apply pressure to flex the toy from all angles and watch for missing pieces, large cracks or separations that can easily be removed. Worm and damaged toys should be replaced immediately.
Bionic toys are all dishwasher safe. We recommend using normal dishwasher settings and use limited detergent and only detergents that are safe for pets.
Your dog's safety is your responsibility.
Our unique and durable Bionic Rubber® material does not contain any harmful phthalates, hormones, lead, cadmium, mercury, natural rubber, Bisphenoal A, asbestos or latex. However, with any toy, swallowing pieces or fragments of the toy can be harmful to your dog. If you think your dog has swallowed a portion of a toy (or if you notice that a fragment of the toy is missing) remove the toy from them and promptly inform your veterinarian.
