Herding dogs might particularly love it. I may look into more info for Harry.

Neat! I have seen those giant boomer balls for herding dogs on their website and thought about them for the dogs.

Can you get them anywhere for less than the herding balls from boomer? 90 bucks a pop is a lot lol.

Looks fun.

I bet you could use really cheap beach balls, and just replace them as they get torn up. It doesn't look like the dog is biting, just moving it with his head and body.

Really neat. I'll have to check into it for Shelby. She's showing some really interesting herding behaviors.

What about exercise balls?

They make inflatable balls for kids to bounce around on too, I had a huge one growing up. They're pretty strong
