Default Trieball

I've been looking to do some thing low impact w/ Daisy,who has i think herding desire and instinct but hasn't used them, I want to get a couple of trieball and teach her touch and push. it would be low impact . read the threads on here and watched the how to video on you-tube. Daisy could get exercise in our large backyard has walking her requires lifting to truck(HipIssues)and this might help her gain back some muscle.I checked Amazon ,Fosters.ZAZZLE cant find the balls. Anybody know where I can get them. Ithink since Lucky dominates fetch this could be her time w/ me.I would also like Lucky to learn but Daisy first. Any comments or ideas ?

I would love to get one too- it would be great practice for herding but I don't know where to get them. If I find out I'll let you know

Probably a stupid idea but can't you just use exercise balls?

Pic for reference of what I mean:



Although to be fair, the sneaky little fart did realise how to pull the plug out and deflate it pretty fast!

That exercise ball is a good idea, if it isn't too easy to pop, I think Lakota would love it.

Jamie - I really don't know, but I let Molly have a play with mine everynow and then and as long as it is pumped up enough she has not been able to pop it!

This looks like it would work Discount School Supply - Rubber Playground Ball - 16" Red

We tried it with exercise balls, I think they were called Body Balls. Got them on sale at a sporting goods store. Annie killed them all really quickly. Partly my fault, I let her play with them instead of just using them for training.

I just ordered some from ValleyVet and ordered the covers for them too, thought that would help. These are for horses, hopefully they can survive Annie. Not sure this is the exact link, I ordered the 25" ones. They have a pretty good selection of sizes.

Search Results - Navigator

They should be here today or tomorrow, will let you know how they are.

Thanks Guys. There used to be this thing in the late seventies called monester ball.at camp we used it , it was canvas and wire and about 3 and half feet wide.It was teen ager proof so maybe it could stand up to Daisy.I'm going to the link you guys provided when I get done w/work.
