These are hard rubber balls that Leerburg imports from Europe to be used with a reward marker in training. The balls are perfect for training vests and people who have a difficult time grabbing a ball on a string. The handles attaches to the ropes on these balls are easy to grab and eliminate rope burn on aggressive tuggers.
The ball is hard and 7 cm [2.75"] in diameter. Colors may vary.
For those people who like to use balls on a string or rope in their training program this is an excellent choice.
These are not balls that are designed to be left with dogs when they are unattended. In fact we here at Leerburg do not believe any ball should be left with any dog when the owner is not there to supervise the dog. Doing so only begs for a dog to chew up a toy and have a bowl obstruction.
No toy is 100% indestructible. It is unrealistic to expect that from any toy. The toys that we sell at Leerburg® are the best quality and most durable that we have found. Always supervise your dog when playing with toys. Periodically inspect all toys for damage. Do not allow your dog to continue to play with a damaged or broken toy.
When using balls as toys the handler must be aware of the size of their dog and the prey drive of their dog. Balls can kill dogs if swallowed. Possessive dogs can swallow small balls. DO NOT BUY a small ball for a large dog!!
