    I did a search but didn't come up with any reference to these, so maybe they haven't been discovered.

    Blithe loves balls of course, but would destroy any tennis balls he had. I found the Kong balls, which are a bit larger than a regular tennis ball, and a lot tougher, AND they squeak! They come in packages of two and look just like a tennis ball, and although more expensive than doggie tennis balls, they're well worth it.

    Blithe also has a 10 inch diameter ball that he plays soccer with, while holding the Kong ball in his mouth and squeaking it as he plays. What a picture!

    I think I've seen those at Target, I don't know if they were Kongs but they were squeaky tennis balls. F-kap also destroys balls for dogs. I only get the ones people play tennis with. They'er stronger and don't fall apart as easily. Plus, I got a dozen of them for the same price as I would have payed for four.:winkgrin:

    Tabitha, They're clearly marked as Kong balls, and I'd say they're pretty indestructable. With regular tennis balls Blithe would sooner, rather than later, chew the fuzz off and then proceed to chew the ball apart, leaving parts strewn around the house. No telling how much of those pieces he had eaten.

    My dog loves her kong tennis balls. My girl is tiny, so I use the kong balls that are smaller than a normal tennis ball. Kong balls come in multiple sizes. Since I only have one dog this isnt an issue, but if you have dogs of different sizes, you shouldnt use the tiny balls because the larger dogs can choke.

    I recently bought a new kong toy. It's a small hard rubber pig with a squeaker inside. My dog loves it because when i throw it down the hallwayit bounces all over the place. She has no idea where it will bounce.

    I also have the Kong "squeakair" tennis balls. I have the regular tennis ball size and I have some of the smaller ones because I thought we would need them for flyball, but Missy just ended up using the regular sized ones. The squeaky balls really helped in flyball training at first because we could squeak it to get her to focus. Now they make some that look like different sports balls (basketball, baseball, etc) that look really cool, but they don't squeak. I really want them.. even though we have a ridiculous amount of toys already.

    I saw those at the pet store this week. They're so cute. I almost bought them, but they were really hard.

    I think they're supposed to be more durable. But I seriously have a ton of tennis balls already.

    I use these for flyball. They're very very soft compared to a regular tennis ball. Our club uses them also, but I don't think they're the same brand. But they're all orange and yellow.
