Where to get this ball?

My dogs found two of these years ago. Forgot where. They last forever and float even. Size of a tennis ball. Does anyone know what kind they are and/or where to get them? Thanks

Bought two of them years ago. They last forever. Mine are the size of a softball. Got them at a now defunct pet store. I will keep my out for them.

These look like batting cage balls. You might be able to buy them from a local batting cage.

Thanks!!!! https://www.amazon.com/Jugs-Yellow-D...ching+machines

Kinda spendy but they last forever and they are handy to take along. Then I saw this is the price for a dozen!

Glad you found them. I know I didn't spend that much though.

I got three of these at a used sporting good store for $1.95 each and a size bigger than a tennis ball so not as risky for being swallowed. Super good deal. New they are $4.99, which is much cheaper than the toys labeled for dogs. The only balls that withstand their bite, they float, solid material without weighing down your pockets and don't get slippery enough to slide in their throat. They are normally used for baseball practice.

Glad you found what you are looking for. Mine are softball size so they can't get lodged in the throat.

If you get an off brand they're usually wayy cheaper than JUGS. Target had some for $3. High school and college softball have huge buckets of these. Once they're too old for the machine we usually toss em. You could always ask them for a old used ball.
