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 ?
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.
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.
